Why Audible?

Imagine being able to say of a great audiobook your friend is enjoying, “I had a hand in producing that,” or point to apps your friends are using and say, “Hey, I helped build that.” As an Audible employee, you’ll be part of something big. And better yet, you’ll feel like a valued member of the team.

People at Audible enjoy a rich heritage of firsts. We led the charge into digital audiobooks back in 1995. We commercialized the first portable digital audio player in 1997, four years before the introduction of the iPod. We continue to invent on behalf of our customers with innovations like the Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX), an online audio rights marketplace and production platform, and Whispersync for Voice, an innovation that allows people to switch between reading a Kindle book and listening to the corresponding Audible audiobook without losing their place. If your ideas are destined to change the world, Audible’s culture of innovation provides an environment in which you can become a rock star.

Working at Audible

Audible’s loft-style Newark HQ is a gallery-esque workspace that buzzes with energy and creativity. Manhattan’s just 20 minutes away, and here at Audible you’ll find a stimulating mix of literary culture and advanced digital technology that has transformed the audiobook category and turned what we call “literate listening” into the way busy people read.

We offer competitive salaries and benefits like Amazon stock, health club membership, and transportation stipends. Our people also enjoy benefits like catered breakfast and lunch, onsite events featuring leaders in technology and the arts, and audiobook clubs.
