  • Develop impeccable insights-driven media research and analysis that can be quickly used to inform key client strategies and presentations
  • Draft high-quality client deliverables without any typos or mistakes, including talking points, op-eds, and media plans


Our ideal candidate can demonstrate or possesses the following:

  • 3+ years of experience in tech, higher ed or nonprofit communications: in-house, media or journalism covering; PR agency experience preferred
  • Strong storytelling and media relations skills must be able to provide examples of op-eds, pitches, and other materials that clearly demonstrate these skills

  • Ability to communicate clearly and effectively, both verbally and in writing, with varying levels of staff, clients, the media, and more
  • Proven ability to handle multiple assignments at once, work quickly, and meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment
  • Proven ability to become a savvy and nimble student of the news and quickly identify new media opportunities and narratives to insert our clients' voices into the news cycle
