Account Coordinator

The TL;DR version: We’re hiring an account coordinator who plays by our House Rules. We need a hustler … a team-player who’s ready to embrace the crazy, infuse creativity and innovate best practices. Strong interest in the startup/tech world is a must. Want to join us at the intersection of traditional and digital PR? Email your resume, a 140-word cover letter and two writing samples to with Account Coordinator in the subject line.

The full story: This position is ideal for a self-starter with a least one year of internship/agency experience who would thrive in a non-corporate, fast-paced, results-driven environment. In this role, you’d be responsible for supporting our team with research, media relations, social media/community management, writing and results reporting. While this is an entry-level position, our goal is to hire someone who wants to grow with the company and take on more responsibilities. Because many of our clients are startups and/or tech-enabled businesses, a strong interest in the technology world (B2B and B2C) is a must.
