Auricle Productions, the independent audio company behind the Peabody award-winning show Threshold, is seeking an experienced marketing and communications professional to lead this area of our work through an exciting phase of continued growth.
The marketing and communications director is responsible for promoting Threshold and growing its audience. They are our networker-in-chief, with a steady determination to get Threshold heard by as many people as possible and the skills to make it happen. They define and execute strategies to identify, reach, convert, engage and retain listeners through paid, owned, shared, and earned channels, as well as through events and partnerships. They proactively build strong relationships—with members of the media, colleagues at distribution platforms, and within various external networks—to drive greater awareness and listener growth for Threshold.
This role requires leadership, vision, and strategic thinking. We are looking for someone who is experienced and adept at creating and leading comprehensive marketing and communications efforts from concept to execution to evaluation.
Threshold is independent, nonprofit, and operates on a funding model that is philanthropy based—primarily individual donations and foundation grants. We do not currently seek advertisers or sponsors; our marketing and promotions are driven by earned media, promo swaps, paid advertising, and innovative partnerships.
The marketing and communications director will work closely and collaboratively with our small, fully remote staff, reporting to the executive director and supervising an existing team of two on the marketing and outreach team.
Anti-racism work and DEI values will be embedded into your personal ethos and actions, and you’ll whole-heartedly embrace our organizational commitment to these efforts. As we grow, you’ll help elevate an authentic brand that is centered in our vision, mission and guiding principles.
The annual base salary range for this role is $82,000 to $95,000.
