Description

There's a revolution in listening, and Audible is leading it.

Audible, Inc., an Amazon.com, Inc. subsidiary (NASDAQ:AMZN), has a simple ambition: deliver spoken- word audio content – anytime, anywhere – to enrich and change lives. From the curious-minded whose commutes are being transformed into treasured time for entertainment and discovery, to thwarted readers gaining access to new worlds of literature and more, people's lives are being transformed through great listening. And it's not just our listeners who tell us their lives have been touched by Audible; we have inspired a new class of creators—authors, teachers, artists, actors—to express themselves in this intimate, immersive and captivating medium.

While part of the Amazon family—with the impassioned goal of delighting our listeners to prove it— Audible still operates independently and retains the inventive, and entrepreneurial spirit evident when it was founded in 1996 and invented the world's first mp3 player. Today, over 50M fanatical listeners have downloaded our digital apps on hundreds of digital devices across the globe, accessed our catalog of over 250,000 titles in 25+ categories, and helped us become the top-rated audiobook app on iOS and Android.

Brand Communications at Audible:

Audible's Member Communications group is tasked—enviably, we think—with growing and engaging a wildly passionate community of smart, curious-minded audiobook lovers. As brand champions and performance marketers, the Branding and Marketing Communications team creates content, programs, and advertising assets – for both internal and external usage - across earned, owned, and paid surfaces.

As a key player on the Member Communications design team, you'll be responsible for ideating and designing marketing communications that Audible members see on a daily basis. Working with an equally passionate team of creators, you will lead concept development for member onboarding and retention activities across the customer journey from email to web to app to social.
