We are also an experimental organization where new ideas come up and change happens quickly, so you must be flexible and excited to contribute to that change. Finally, we are looking for someone who has a demonstrated commitment to equity and inclusivity with a passion for supporting new voices in media.

This role is a full-time position, Wednesday through Sunday, based in the heart of D.C.’s creative community.The Community Manager will report to the Senior Manager of the Podcast Garage and work with remote PRX staff in Boston, Minneapolis, and New York City.”
