Steno is growing! We’re looking for a Production Manager to join our winning team, which is revolutionizing the court reporting industry every single day. We’re a diverse team from all over the country (and beyond) and we’re crazy about redefining the boundaries of an outdated industry.

You should also be enthusiastic about the opportunity for growth within the company, while also helping the company grow. You’re comfortable wearing multiple hats; working not only with your team, but also other teams. You thrive in a fast-paced, remote environment and you’re able to master new skills and systems quickly.

If you’re looking for a company that offers support, guidance, an abundance of killer giphys, and unlimited potential to grow into your best self, you can bet we’d love to have you too.

  • You’re highly organized yet adaptable, you can translate broader company objectives into actionable goals for your teams, and you excel working cross-functionally and remotely in a startup environment

  • You have experience building and scaling teams for optimal workflow, taking both employee and client experience into account

  • You’re skilled in conflict management and problem solving, action oriented, and you have a knack for picking up new technical skills quickly

Our Team

The production team is a highly reliable and super motivated team. A diverse group working throughout the country, we’re responsible for all final production of deposition transcripts.

We are tech-savvy perfectionists and collaborative team players. Not only do we work under tight deadlines, but we are also constantly evaluating and reevaluating our own processes to make them more efficient than they were the day before!

If a fast paced environment that keeps you on your toes is not for you, then the production team is probably not the right fit. But if you don’t shy away from a little chaos and you are a natural troubleshooter, then you may just find the home you are looking for here.
