As a Production Coordinator at Storytel, you are responsible for the planning and project management of our audiobook and ebook productions.

What We Offer

Storytel offers a friendly, entrepreneurial and fast-moving work environment where new ideas and creativity is welcomed. We like doing things in new ways and questioning old methods. The Storytel culture - characterized by being welcoming and helpful - is important to us. We don’t believe in hierarchy and micromanagement; we highly believe in giving responsibility and having people grow alongside it. And we always find time for a virtual “fika” (the Swedish concept of sitting down and having a cup of coffee together).

This is a full-time position and you will be working in a beautiful office in Berlin, only a few steps away from Checkpoint Charlie.
