About Our Wavelength

We’re FRQNCY Media, the audio production company for Jane Goodall’s “Hopecast,” Diane von Furstenburg’s “InCharge With DVF,” Coca-Cola’s “Total Refresh,” the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities’ “Hidden Voices,” and many others.

FRQNCY is a one-in-a-million blend of innovation, passion, and joy. We offer tailored audio production support including integrated services that take (super-skilled) care of content strategy, market research, production, editing, and  marketing.

Meet Our CEO & Founder

Michelle Khouri is a podcast executive producer and audio entrepreneur. Michelle founded and singlehandedly bootstrapped FRQNCY Media in 2018 with the vision of making the audio industry inclusive and accessible to all voices who want to bring good into this world. She is a first generation Colombian American who comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, musicians, and activists. Get to know her.

Culture and Purpose Come First

FRQNCY is a purpose-driven company. We value alignment, intention, diversity, kindness, determination, and clarity. Every new member of our team shares our same values with equal fervor. We unabashedly work every day to dismantle toxic patriarchal systems, including  Capitalism and white supremacy. You’ll experience that in our day-to-day conversations as we bring to the surface ego-driven, racist, or misogynistic programming that must be called out in order to be healed.

We focus on our people before all else. Which means that all part-time positions are built to open doors for future expansion within the company. If you want to be a part of a company that is changing what it means to work, we should talk.

Oh, and we value joy. We wake up every day wondering how it is we got lucky enough to spend our days surrounded by compelling stories, cradled in beautiful sounds, and entrenched in opportunities to whip up innovative new pieces of audio for our clients.

The Right Fit

Our future part-time podcast editor is a dialogue-cutting, narrative-loving, spec-obsessed audiophile who’s aching for higher quality content in the podcast industry. You know how to strike the balance between achieving masterful levels and artfully pacing dialogue.

You are kind at your core, approach your work with intention, and have big ideas on how to make a simple interview sparkle. You are a clear communicator, especially when it comes to what you need, how your team can support you, and what you aim to achieve. 

You will manage dialogue editing and mixing for FRQNCY’s production package clients (mostly small business owners and thought leaders), and will support post-production for our full-service clients (big brands). You will report to our fabulous producer and will work with a fellow sound designer and podcast editor, and will have close contact with our CEO who is Executive Producer for our larger productions.

You will flex your superpowers in the following ways:

  • Work with our Producer to ensure smooth delivery of episode cuts, dialogue cuts, and final cuts
  • Cut and assemble dialogue, with a focus on editing for narrative
  • Artfully mix in theme music
  • Master all cuts to FRQNCY specifications
  • Seamlessly integrate into our standing workflows, including Monday.com for project management and BounceBoss for QC

Experience

Our ideal part-time producer has:

  • Experience: 2+ years of experience in audio production, particularly dialogue editing
  • Skills
    • Expert proficiency with a DAW (Logic, Pro-Tools, or similar)
    • Proficiency with audio repair software Izotope RX (de-noise, de-click, etc.)
    • Familiarity with loudness standards (LUFS) with respect to mastering for the podcast medium
  • Clarity: Strong communication skills and a dedication to meeting deadlines
  • Initiative: If you’re proactively thinking about the next cool project, thinking through potential pitfalls, and identifying ways to improve without being prompted, we want to meet you.
  • Curiosity: You are naturally wired to research, explore, unearth, and discover.
  • Passion: Podcasts are what we do. They’re what we eat, breathe, and sleep. Having a passion for the core of our business is pretty, pretty, pretty…important.

Samples

We ask that you provide the following examples of your work:

  • Dialogue you’ve cut, assembled, and mastered
  • Audio mixing and mastering of all kinds, if available
  • Bonus: Samples of your sound design skills, if available
