Audible exists to unleash the power of the spoken word and to take our category into the media mainstream. We work to change the way individuals control the what, when, where, and how of the words they hear, and to establish literate listening as a core tool for anyone who wants to be more productive, well-informed, or more thoughtfully entertained.
Audible’s People Principles celebrate who we are and where we’ve been, and guide the way we work shoulder to shoulder to enhance the lives of our customers. They reflect and apply to everyone who works at Audible—the entrepreneurs and operators, the dreamers and the doers, those who have worked here for 20 years and those who have arrived in the past few weeks and months.

You’ll benefit from discounts on products, gym memberships, housing subsidies in our hometown of Newark, transit reimbursement or paid parking, and a free shuttle service to work. It’s our way of giving a little something back to the brilliant people who make this all possible.
“Audible genuinely believes in supporting the growth of their people and understands how important learning and development is--not only for an individual’s personal career progression but also for the continued success of the company. I feel very privileged to play my part in this incredibly innovative business that enriches the lives of listeners on a daily basis.” —Jay, Senior Learning & Development Manager
“In a time when the rest of the world is anxious and full of uncertainty about the future, Audible gives me hope that there are still people who want to make a positive difference in the world. From our CEO (Don) to my own managers, I have always felt like and been treated as an equal. I love what we as a company do for the world, and I consider it a major point of pride to call myself an Audible employee.” —Matthew, Knowledge Management Specialist, Customer Service Operations
At Audible, we seek to exemplify what a company can mean beyond what it does. We moved our headquarters to Newark in 2007 to become part of a transformational urban turnaround. As the city’s fastest-growing private employer, we recruit and cultivate local talent as well as drive forward a wide range of community initiatives with a focus on returning Newark to its roots as a hub of innovation.
We believe a company can have a heart, soul, and mission. We strive to be a leader in urban transformation, leveraging our entrepreneurial spirit to make a positive impact in the communities in which we operate.
We love what we do and we want our people to enjoy coming to work. Whether that’s relaxing at our weekly happy hour, participating in after work sports and affinity groups, or getting involved in community service projects, we take that passion seriously.
“We will change the way an individual controls the what, when, where, and how of the words they hear.” —DON KATZ, FOUNDER AND CEO, AUDIBLE
