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.

We are looking for a motivated Contracts Manager to support Audible’s JP dynamic and growing business. This is initially a 12 month contract.

Your responsibilities will include: drafting and documenting a variety of commercial contractual relationships, including marketing agreements, service agreements and work orders, license agreements and amendments, with standard fallbacks and/or under guidance of counsel; supporting and documenting rights clearances; review of advertising, promotion and creative copy; localization of guidelines; documenting processes; educating business people on contract processes, policies and guidelines.

*Drafting and review of contracts, marketing materials, etc. will generally be in Japanese. Internal communications with business partners and legal team members and guidelines will involve more English.

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
