Who You Are:
We’re looking for a talented senior communications strategist who can be a counselor to a diverse range of clients, from startups and advocacy groups to investment funds and C-Suite executives, helping them see around the corner and anticipate problems before they emerge.
You will be expected to lead and manage strategic communications campaigns, cultivate a network of strong relationships with industry influencers and reporters, and help drive business development efforts. You should have a keen interest in advising clients on how the fragmentation of the media ecosystem affects how communications campaigns are built today, and should be just as comfortable navigating the pages of the Wall Street Journal’s Business & Tech section as you are in working with writers from Mic.
You’ll direct day-to-day client relations and lead the production of consistently high-quality deliverables for a variety of high-profile client campaigns.
You’ll lead a team in devising media strategies, building media calendars and providing client roadmaps.
You’ll assist with business development efforts, identifying and seizing opportunities to support our clients in the news cycle.
You’ll think strategically about the shifting media landscape and identify ways of integrating your insights for existing and prospective clients.
You’ll supervise and mentor junior team members.
You have 5-10 years of experience in communications, digital campaigns, journalism, and/or public affairs.
You have experience providing communications counsel to executives, leaders, or companies in high-stakes situations.
You have strong relationships with reporters, editors, and bloggers stemming from your prior work in the industry.
You’re familiar with the fact that the tools our clients use to communicate are constantly changing, and you know how to think about earned media in coordination with paid marketing campaigns.
You can write concisely and powerfully and adapt your writing for different platforms.
You have an entrepreneurial attitude that is equal parts determined and humble. You’re willing to move fast--very fast--and do the work that needs to get done.
You thrive in team-based environments and know how to clearly and efficiently direct junior staff.
You have a Bachelor’s Degree or more.
You care about details — because they matter.
