Job Openings & Internships
Arlington Independent Media builds our community by bringing independent voices together to exchange ideas, opinions, and artistic expressions. By providing comprehensive basic training, master-level advanced instruction, a fully equipped digital production facility, content-rich website and channels delivered to every Arlington cable subscriber, and a community center local radio station, we make people into producers—not just consumers—of media.
AIM is currently hiring two full-time and two part-time/temporary roles. All positions will remain open until filled. However, we’re hoping to have candidates onboarded by May 1st, so we advise applicants to submit their materials as soon as possible.
Manager of Video, Multimedia, and Technology
The Manager of Video, Multimedia, and Technology maintains the organization’s video production, distribution and IT technology; organizes and oversees the public’s usage of production equipment and facilities; manages AIM’s commercial production services; and produces audio and video content for the organization. The right candidate will be an excellent production technician and communicator; and must possess a strong desire and ability to show initiative, meet deadlines, and manage multiple projects.

Radio Station Manager
The Radio Station Manager maintains the organization’s LPFM station, programs all station content via the ENCO DAD automation system, works closely with the station’s volunteer producers to ensure proper training, and provides technical assistance in the live radio booth and recording studio. The ideal candidate is a collaborative, driven, people-person who thrives in hands-on teaching and training environments.
Though the radio station manager is first responsible for the technical maintenance of a 24-hour radio schedule, ensuring live productions, pre-recorded programs and music rotations flow seamlessly throughout the day, a successful manager is truly a volunteer coordinator who understands the unique relationship between a community media center and the volunteer producers who are eager to learn and produce at a variety of skill-levels.
