  • You understand that communications as a profession is changing and want to be a part of that change. You’re ready to explore new ways of breaking the routine.

  • You consider yourself a hands-on leader with a strong network of relationships with journalists across many verticals. You’re not afraid to pick up the phone on an incoming note from a reporter, good or bad.

  • Embrace our Differences
  • You understand this is more of a generalist role oscillating between product, corporate, and trust & safety.
  • While your focus is on the North American markets, you are comfortable working across multiple time zones.
