Imagine a company with millions of the most satisfied customers on the planet, that has been delighting those customers for decades, and that has consistently pushed the boundaries of technology, entertainment, education, and self-improvement. Now add to that a company culture that not only puts the customer at the center of every decision and action, but that also strives to elevate those customers, enriching their lives in every imaginable way. Your role is to lead the team expanding the reach of those myriad benefits to additional millions in new ways and in new places, to amplify that success to new levels.

You will be finding ways to bring the power of the spoken word to people who need it most and whose lives can be completely changed by what you deliver. You'll be working hand-in-hand with mission-driven business leaders to consider how to improve the Audible experience in existing overseas marketplaces as well as how to bring Audible into new ones where people want to engage their minds through the medium of the spoken word. You'll focus relentlessly on customer, working with user experience designers, to craft product capabilities that you'll help marketers and software engineers to build.

This team is all about bringing our award-winning service to a wider audience, by imagining new capabilities and service innovations, experimenting and iterating quickly, and quickly delivering to customers. You will lead a product team that articulates new possibilities and then moves fast to make them a reality. Your team will meet with potential listeners in new segments and new places, and will open up Audible to a whole new set of champions.

You have an insatiable appetite for understanding your customers and are relentless in finding solutions that meet their needs, sweating the details and tying them back to the big picture. You know what customers value about what Audible does.

You are passionate about bringing the spoken word to even just one more listener. You are an evangelist for Audible. You believe in the mission. You want to change people's lives.

You deeply understand your product, and the alternative ways customers spend their time. You know how best to match what your product can do to what your customers know they need and to what they have yet to understand they need.

You know what is easy to change about your product and what is challenging. You know how to evolve the product to meet evolving needs, moving the product ahead, leaving nobody behind.

You're an accountable, hands on problem-solver with a positive attitude, letting nothing stand in the way. You know how to clarify the path forward and prioritize work. You know how to influence others.

You're a natural collaborator equally comfortable talking tech with developers, user experience with designers, copy and positioning with product marketers, numbers with finance and marketing, and strategy with executive leadership. You pay attention to people, connect with them, and know how to achieve great things together.

You'll also be working with international teams to bring these capabilities into new markets emphasizing cultural and intellectual sensitivities, creating an Audible that delights a broad spectrum of listeners. You will of course delight Audible listeners, but you'll also delight content providers and your fellow team members, with your world-class infrastructure systems.
