About this Role

We’re currently seeking a team member to deliver exceptional media strategy, content development, and placements.

(You love this field and constantly thirst for more information to build your capabilities.) You’ll work with our senior leaders and client teams to craft compelling, issue-focused communications for placement in trade and mainstream publications to drive awareness, positive perceptions, and engagement among stakeholders. You’re a super, strong writer and storyteller, able to mine comprehensive client content for stories, develop persuasive pitches, build relationships with key outlets, and ensure all efforts support our clients’ overall business objectives and success measures.
As an equal opportunity employer, we strongly encourage people from historically underrepresented groups to apply.

Salary: $70,000—$90,000, depending on experience and location.

Benefits: Benefits include healthcare, dental and vision; an extremely flexible work environment; ongoing professional development; volunteer time off; and purpose/passion project stipend.


You’re extremely professional with a client-service orientation and a positive, collaborative, can-do attitude.

You gracefully balance multiple competing projects and demands on your time.

You listen carefully. You seek (and give) constructive, candid feedback, since you’re always looking to learn.

You’re a collaborative soul with a sense of humor.

You manage up, down and sideways – dealing with complicated issues and high-powered people with discretion and poise.

You are a self-starter, are proactive, and excel in a virtual environment.


Client service: Work with account directors in their day-to-day leadership of clients from B2B and B2C industries to build strong working relationships. 

Media relations & placement: Collaborate with our account and client teams to develop story angles, identify media targets, forge relationships with key media contacts and bloggers, and secure high-impact placements.

Project management: Manage complex strategy and communications workstreams at the intersection of purpose, ESG, comms, marketing, organizational development, and philanthropy.

Strategic planning: Help develop annual client plans to support organizational and agency objectives. 

Analysis: Apply rigorous attention to research, data, and metrics to monitor progress, “connect the dots,” and develop meaningful outcomes for clients.
