This is remote and our candidate must be able to work independently, be able to prioritize, jump in, understand (or want to) the fickle and quickly moving news cycle, and help get the clients the exposure they are asking for.
THIS IS A REMOTE POSITION AND WILL CONSIDER CANDIDATES IN BOTH THE PACIFIC AND EASTERN TIME ZONES.
If you have ever worked in a newsroom, or have worked in closing a magazine, or have worked on an event - you understand the ebbs and flows of the position. Some days it's really calm and other days we are on fire and can't seem to put it out. We handle very high-profile clients, so we provide calm in this storm with sophistication and grace. Looking for our perfect fit.

There will be some weekends, there will be some late nights. We do give PTO for those to make up for it, and have a very generous vacation and floating holiday policy.
Our candidate will understand that this is not a 9 - 5 job, and be inserted into accounts from day 1 and is able, willing, and excited to jump in and contribute. Must be interested in working with heavy news cycles where pitching cable news outlets in different time zones can also often be the case.
