Do you have experience leading PR teams?
Can you understand new technology and products quickly and explain it in a simple and elegant way?
Have you secured regular media hits with both top-tier tech media and niche trade media?
Can you package data in interesting ways to create news and thought leadership opportunities?
Can you manage other team members so that the client never has to chase us for a deliverable?
If the dynamic PR lead we've described sounds appealing — someone who can inspire confidence with the client and also generate consistent media coverage — then we might have a fantastic role for you.
Some things to know about us:
First, we're not like every other PR agency. We believe in the power of data. We embrace new tools and technology. We swoon over an elegant process or system. We love pitch blueprints. If it ain't broke, optimize it. As a result, we're growing faster than pretty much any other PR agency around.
Second, we work a little differently. In 48 marketing disciplines across 6 functional groups, we're redefining what a full-service marketing agency can be. But still, lifestyle and consumer PR was what helped make us famous. Notably, our lifestyle PR team takes a data-driven approach to creating news stories and thought leadership, leveraging our in-house market research capabilities and proprietary survey platform. We're growing quickly in the U.S. and UK but also building a global footprint in 20+ countries.
Third, we're known for our flexible work environment. Not only are we remote-work friendly, but we actually coordinate remote culture and team-building activities on a global basis. Need to work unusual hours or pick up your kids at a set time each day? No problem, we've got your back.
