Open Positions

Community & Design

The Community & Design team creates useful, beautiful things that extend the reach and impact of what we make, connects our audiences to each other, and deepens their agency in the world. You’ll find our work on onbeing.org, social media (Instagram is our favorite), and in our newsletter, The Pause. As we grow, we’re developing new offerings like Tools for the Art of Living, rich poetry experiences, and Care Packages

Audience Editor

We are looking for someone to bring their voice and talents to executing an audience-first engagement strategy that serves our very active, counter-culturally broad, and growing community of listeners. The themes we’ve been pursuing across the years are converging with this global moment, which gives us a deep well of offerings to bring to the surface alongside a calling to accompany the healers, creatives, and changemakers who make up our community. The Audience Editor will be at the center of this work. 

A core focus of the Audience Editor will be to drive engagement around our public radio and podcast portfolio, including our flagship show — the Peabody award-winning On Being with Krista Tippett, which has been downloaded and played over 200 million times and was named by The New York Times as first of their recommended “8 Podcasts for the Spiritual Searcher.” Our newest podcast, Poetry Unbound, was played/downloaded over a million times in its first season this year. Season 2 is in production, as is a new season of This Movie Changed Me

The ideal candidate will bring a blend of digital engagement and audience development experience. They will have an instinctive feel for our unique voice and tone and a complementary voice of their own, know how to write inviting social copy, and have an applied understanding of what content to share on which platforms and why. We are looking for someone who can be both a practitioner and an innovator, and someone who can build our engagement muscle toward impact. You should be someone who recognizes how technology can be utilized to share ideas and build community, and has ideas on how to do so.

This is a full-time position that will report to the Executive Director of Community & Design. This position may be remote. Learn more and apply here by 9:00 a.m. CST on Monday, June 15th

Civil Conversations & Social Healing

The Civil Conversations and Social Healing team is the area of our organization most concerned with the third animating question that guides our work: “Who will we be to each other?” Our team represents The On Being Project’s presence in the world as it inspires, calls forth, and cultivates the generative values that contribute to social healing. We accompany individuals, organizations and communities as they seek to engage the pressing moral and ethical issues of our time in the context of community and relationship.

Associate Director of Religious Life and Social Healing

We are looking for a leader to build and strengthen a strategic web of partnership with religious congregations, interfaith, and civic organizations. The Associate Director of Religious Life and Social Healing will support these partners as they work toward their own resilience and capacity, with an eye to strengthening their agency, impact, and cultural leadership in the work of social healing. They accompany leaders of congregations and faith-based institutions who are engaging with courage, the pressing moral and social issues of our time.

This is a full-time position that will report to the Executive Director of Civil Conversations and Social Healing. This position may be remote. Learn more and apply here by 9:00 a.m. CST  on Monday, June 15th . 

On Being Studios

The Studios team produces content for our public radio and podcast portfolio, including our flagship show — the Peabody award-winning On Being with Krista Tippett, which has been downloaded and played over 200 million times and was named by The New York Times as first of their recommended “8 Podcasts for the Spiritual Searcher.”

Producer

We are looking for someone to bring their talents to producing audio and video content that serves our very active, counter-culturally broad, and growing community of listeners. The themes we’ve been pursuing across the years are converging with this global moment, which gives us a deep well of offerings to bring to the surface alongside a calling to accompany the healers, creatives, and changemakers who make up our community. The Producer will be at the center of this work.

A core focus of the Producer’s role will be to lead production for our newest podcast, Poetry Unbound, which was played/downloaded over a million times in its first season this year (season 2 is currently in production). The producer will also work on our other podcast, This Movie Changed Me. The Producer will collaborate closely with our Community & Design team to create original short-form audio and video content, from Care Packages on onbeing.org to Tools for the Art of Living on YouTube. And they will support our Civil Conversations and Social Healing team as they pursue audio content that resources communities to do the work of social healing.

The ideal candidate for this role is a collaborative and curious leader who loves learning. They lead by example through both the quality of their work, their flexibility, and their direct communication style. They understand what makes a good story and how to identify themes and emblematic moments in an interview. They love the editorial and technical challenge of editing audio and video to craft compelling, insightful content. And they are independent and organized enough to tackle projects on their own, but still enjoy working as a team.

This is a full-time position with an expected start date of September 2020. They will report to the Executive Producer of On Being Studios who is based in Minneapolis. This position may be remote. Learn more and apply here by 9:00 a.m. CST on Thursday, July 2nd.
