POSITION TITLE: Audio Editor & Producer

REPORTS TO: Senior Producer


Climate One is the premier platform for the conversation about climate disruption. Through our podcast, national radio show, and live convenings for thought leaders and concerned members  of the public, we create opportunities for dialogue, exchange, and reflection that deepen  understanding and catalyze solutions.


We’re looking for a dynamic, experienced audio editor who will help craft the sound of our weekly podcast and radio show for a global audience who cares deeply about climate and justice issues. We want someone who knows how to make compelling audio and who will bring new ideas for fostering insightful conversations and engaging storytelling to our team, particularly as we deepen our coverage of how climate chaos intersects with social and economic justice.

The Audio Editor & Producer helps develop weekly programs in collaboration with the Climate  One team and works in tandem with our existing Audio Editor/Producer. Once the interviews are recorded, the Audio Editor & Producers are responsible for scripting, audio editing and sound design. In addition, the Audio Editor & Producer may contribute to researching, reporting and booking guests for the program.

Climate One is based in San Francisco at The Commonwealth Club of California, a non-profit  and non-partisan public forum. Audio Editor & Producer applicants can be based anywhere and  are expected to travel (at the Club’s expense) to work in San Francisco a few times per year to build team cohesion.

Status: Salaried, Exempt

Schedule: Full time.

Salary/Compensation: $55,000 to $72,000.

Full health, dental, and vision benefits, and 401K plan with 4% employer match. 


We envision a world where a clear-eyed awareness of the climate crisis shapes decisions  ranging from personal behavior to public policy and where the full spectrum of humanity’s  wisdom, talent, and expertise is marshaled toward the wellbeing of all life on Earth.


Inclusion is the key to our success: We’re building a workplace where collaboration is essential and diverse voices are not just heard, but are influential. We are seeking a motivated and talented producer who will  help shape the most important conversation of our time, and help us lift up underrepresented voices. We do not expect the most qualified applicant to have prior experience in all aspects of the job; we provide mentorship and guidance to help our team members grow.
