Curio Labs

Building the media platform of tomorrow

With the arrival of smart audio devices, the world is ready to accept audio as a mainstream source of information and entertainment. While podcasts have been around for a while, the true potential of voice as a medium is yet to be taken advantage of. And we are building that media platform of tomorrow.

Today, curio.io offers curated, professionally narrated articles from premium publications like The Financial Times, The Guardian and Aeon, so people can listen at home or on the go.

We already have over 20 premium publications as partners and the app has over 500 hours of audio, covering a wide range of topics, moods and durations.

curio.io is a 500 Startups company and has since been seed-funded, to push rapid growth and development into building out the media platform of tomorrow. We are backed by some of the best tech and media investors in the world, and have the founding team required to achieve that goal.

Now is the time to join us. Over the next 5-10 years, you can have the opportunity to make a real impact on the world and how the people of tomorrow get the information they seek and need.

The Role

We are looking for someone to join our growing team and help deliver on the promise of helping people stay informed and get smarter while saving their valuable time. This would be an ideal job for a recent university graduate with interests in media/audio/innovation.

Your role will involve assisting with every stage of the production process, analysing listening data, managing content for social media, as well as helping with general administrative tasks.

We are currently only a team of four so there is a room for the role to grow into almost anything.

The role is full-time and will be based in our central London office.
