In this role, you will be responsible for conceptualizing and driving highly appealing and creative media relations for clients, developing media lists, crafting persuasive media pitches, and sending them to the media on behalf of our clients. Writing compelling emails that editors can't help but open and respond to will be your North Star. Knowing how to turn a "maybe" into a hit is your secret weapon.
You look at "no news" as an opportunity, not a burden. You're able to handle day-to-day communications with clients and media with little guidance, stay on track of client deliverables, follow processes and merchandize coverage at the drop of a hat. Data-driven insights like "open rates" are part of your vocabulary just as much as "lede."
Your ability to translate client's business and marketing needs to PR strategy and tactics is outstanding. Your Excel skills are superb and your experience with creating media lists and collaborating via Slack are unrivaled.
You're also passionate about startups and technology and you're interested in disrupting the public relations space. You know the difference between editorial calendars and HAROs, and managing editors versus news editors.
