Head of Global Production

Scroll to content

At Storytel we believe that powerful stories add an extra dimension to life. We offer thousands of audiobooks and ebooks to customers in twenty markets. Storytel Publishing is our inhouse publishing and production unit producing more than 5000 audio stories in 24 languages yearly. This is a big operation and takes a lot of oversight to optimize cost vs revenues, therefore we are looking for a Head of Global Production to join our Publishing team. 

About the role

You will work closely with all our markets to monitor and support the setup of lean production processes across the world. Your responsibility is to find the perfect mix of outhouse and inhouse productions market by market and make sure we make the best use of our resources to create quality audio recordings with the lowest possible production cost per hour. You will work closely with our controller, our global publishing team and of course the production coordinators and studio engineers in all our markets. 

When we enter a new market you will also assess the specific production setup in that country and be a part of the decision on how to set up the inhouse/outhouse production mix. You and your team will also be responsible to train and support each market in the Storytel production way, making sure we align the processes globally. 

You will report to our Chief Publishing Officer and be part of the global publishing team. You will be responsible for a small team of experienced production and studio experts reporting to you.

 What we are looking for:

  • 5+ years of working experience with production processes, and/or operations development from media production or similar adjacent businesses. 
  • University degree in Business, Engineering or other relevant education.
  • Proven experience from complex production processes, finding the best ways to optimize them and leading the implementation. 
  • Proven leadership experience, preferably from a matrix organization.
  • Experience in audio production is a plus but not a must.
  • International experience is a plus.
  • Fluent in English.

Relevant background and experiences are important, but we are also very much looking for the right person. We are looking for a person who likes to have a strategic overview but also pays close attention to the details that can greatly improve our processes. We believe you are extremely driven and very communicative and can easily cooperate with colleagues from different teams and cultures. 

What we can offer:

Storytel offers a friendly, entrepreneurial and fast-moving work environment where new ideas and creativity are 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.
