Good storytelling starts with great listening. At Audible, that means each role and every project has our audience in mind. Because the same people who design, develop, and deploy our products also happen to use them. To us, that speaks volumes.

Based in Berlin, Audible GmbH is looking for an Executive Assistant (EA) to the Managing Director (MD). It is an exciting opportunity to work closely with the senior leadership of a leading producer and provider of audio storytelling and spoken-word entertainment. This is your chance to be an instrumental partner with the MD to help make them the most efficient leader possible. This role is all about building strong trust and is relied upon for optimization of the MD’s time.

This position is initially open through a 18- months contract, from June 2023 to February 2025.

The ideal candidate will be a detail oriented, experienced planner with the demonstrated ability to respond effectively and efficiently while maintaining flexibility. The candidate will possess the ability to complete a high volume of tasks with minimal guidance or supervision. Key to the position is the ability to be organised, prioritised and on time while also serving as a "go to" for all areas and departments which dovetail with the Audible team. The position requires the capacity to work successfully in a team environment, build effective working relationships inside and outside of the group and maintain a comprehensive awareness of the organisation.

As Executive Assistant (m/f/d), you will…
  • Manage complex calendar and scheduling requirements. You are responsible for developing schedule and prioritisation of activities, proactively identifying and resolving scheduling conflicts
  • Managing travel and expenses for senior members of the team
  • Work on all administrative support functions, including organising documents, meeting follow up and preparation, space planning, meeting agendas, org charts etc.
  • Track and help drive completion of key deliverables and follow-up on outstanding items
  • All other duties as assigned including special projects like event organisation and general support of team activities as required
  • Assist with language translation requests in support of the MD living in Germany as an English speaker
  • Have a strong sense of ownership (you don't say “This is not my job”), bias for action, and ability to work accurately when under pressure to meet tight deadlines

At Audible, we innovate and inspire through the power of voice. We're changing the narrative on storytelling. As a leading creator and provider of premium audio storytelling, we've redefined the ways people access, discover, and share stories. The stories we tell have the ability to transport and transform everyday moments into meaningful experiences and it's our people who make Audible's service possible. We're listeners, storytellers, and problem-solvers. Our perspectives and experiences power our ideas and come together in our mission to unleash the power of the spoken word. Audible offers a Hub+Home hybrid workplace model that gives employees flexibility between gathering in a common office space (work from hub) and remote work (work from home). Some teams will work mostly at hub, some mostly at home and others hybrid. For more information, please visit
