Publisher, licensed rights

At Storytel & Mofibo we believe that powerful stories add an extra dimension to life. We offer thousands of audiobooks and e-books to customers in fifteen markets, with several new markets launching in the coming year. Storytel/Mofibo is Northern Europe’s largest audiobook streaming service and we are looking to strengthen our team in Denmark with a new publisher of licensed audio rights. You will be replacing our current publisher who is moving to a global position, therefore we would like to have your application as soon as possible, no later than the 12th of april.

As a publisher your main task is to search for great titles for our inhouse audio-production, negotiate terms and set up deals with both writers, publishers and rightsholders. It is a position that demands a lot of reading and a strong sense of genre-consciousness. You will be looking at data to follow how the titles are performing in the different customer groups. In this position you will be working closely with our editorial, content and production teams in Copenhagen and you will also be in close dialogue with our Global Rights team.

Your work will consist of:

  • Finding great book-rights for audio-production
  • Negotiating and setting up contracts with publishers, writers and rightsholders
  • Setting up and maintaining the production plan
  • Making covers with our graphic designers that target the right audience for the specific book
  • Selecting narrators with our production team
  • Handling contracts for our own writers
  • Coordinating and maintaining our sales sheets for our own Storytel Original rights along with our Global Rights team
  • Following the sales and optimizing how we work with licensed rights
  • Implementing new formats to the service

You have:

  • A bachelor or a master’s degree in a relevant field is preferable, but your skills, experience and motivation are the things we are going to consider in the first instance
  • At least 3-5 years of demonstrable working experience within the publishing industry
  • Excellent language skills in English and Danish as your first language
  • A strong sense for structure and order
  • A burning passion for reading lots and lots of manuscripts and books

What we offer:

The best team you have ever worked with in our Copenhagen office. We are a group of book-enthusiastic editors, audio-engineers and content people who look forward to working with someone who is just as passionate about great audiobooks as we are. We have a strong commitment to company culture and individual development and because we are in the midst of building a global organization, you will have hundreds of interesting and inspirational colleagues from all over the world.

Does this sound like the right future for you? Then we would love to get your application as soon as possible, no later than the 12th of april.
