Freelance Audiobook Editor
Are you an experienced freelance audiobook editor looking for your next opportunity?
We are looking for audiobook editors to join us on an exciting and innovative new project that is set to change the way audiobooks are produced.
Based in Soho, DeepZen is a technology and publishing company creating next generation solutions for the publishing industry. Using artificial intelligence that replicates the human voice, we produce audio for publishers and other media companies.
We are a small but growing team of passionate, creative, innovative and tech-savvy individuals with diverse backgrounds in publishing, technology and media.
We are creating a culture that’s open, honest and respectful with individuals who have vision and do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Your role will be focussed on editing audiobooks generated using our AI technology. For the most part you will be using our proprietary studio editor to ensure pace, intonation and emotions are accurate and reflect the tone of the text. However, there may be some traditional audiobook editing and postproduction work alongside this.
We’re looking for audiobook editors who are passionate about books and storytelling, that have an extremely high attention to detail, are proficient with editing tools and enjoy the challenge of working with new technologies.
You’ll be well versed in the industry standards for audio quality, structure and pacing, and able to deliver a professionally finished product to deadline and budget.
The role is flexible and can be done in-house or remotely.
- Ability to work in the UK or USA without sponsorship
- Fully professionally fluent in American or British English
- Audiobook editing
- Correcting pronunciation issues
- Ensuring structure and pacing are consistent and fluid
- Familiar with industry guidelines and standards for audiobook creation
Proactive and able to work on own initiative
- Experience of working with and sourcing narrators
- Preparation of metadata and assets for distribution partners
- Bilingual in another European language
