  • We’re Spotify’s official creative partner.
  • We have a solid and regular pool of clients who we love working with.
  • Our digital team is now 19 people strong and growing.
  • Our audio facility is now 11 studios, including one of the few certified Dolby Atmos suites in central London.
  • Last year we opened our New York office so we can expand our offering into new territories.
  • We’ve presented interactive experiences, continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
  • We always celebrate our successes along the way… we love an excuse for a party!

We’ve done a lot of things that we’re really proud of but we’re not stopping there, so we’re now looking for Freelance Audiobook Editors to join our audiobooks team.

Our Culture

We're creative (standard). We're honest and open. A swear jar would bankrupt us all. We're all equal and we laugh at ourselves...and each other. We're unconventional, productive and we do whatever it takes to get the job done. We like burgers. We always make time for each other and our clients. We live and breathe audio. We're all very different and we love that about our team. We like going to the pub...a lot. We praise each other and recognise achievements. We don't quit, we fix. We're kind and caring. We make a difference. We stick together and pick each other up when it's needed. We're people pleasers. We like to dance. We say please and thank you. We're passionate and motivated. We always leave our clients feeling good.
