Public Relations Account Executive

Are you interested in applying your PR skills for technology companies that are solving some of the greatest challenges in the world today? Uncork-it is a PR and marketing agency that specializes in emerging technologies—including everything from virtual events to cybersecurity crises to self-driving vehicles and more—and we’re looking for an experienced and technology-minded PR professional to join our team.

We’re looking for someone who can work on a fast-paced team, create public relations strategies (for both crisis brand-building, and product publicity PR efforts), craft stories from various information sources, handle press relations, and write press releases and articles as needed – while using the different tools available for amplification. At Uncork-it, we believe great communications begin with a great story. We are seeking an experienced public relations team member to help create, shape, and disperse our clients’ stories.

The ideal candidate will not only have the technical experience to get the job done, but will come prepared to offer fresh, creative ideas. We’re looking for someone who is as comfortable following established guidelines as they are creating new ones.

Your week's activities might include these:

  1. Meeting with client to understand and strategize next steps.
  2. Collaborating with the Strategy team on next steps for our clients’ PR, and analyzing current efforts.
  3. Working with the Content team to develop clear and persuasive copy for:
    1. Websites, landing pages, and digital communications including blog articles and social media.
    2. Press releases and other public relations materials.
    3. Print publications.
    4. Print, broadcast, and digital ads.
  4. Finding that special addition that drives real-life and virtual events toward incredible success.
  5. Building and maintaining relationships with local and industry press.
  6. Managing research team to track industry news and trends.
  7. Updating client digital media with new content, including search engine optimization.
  8. Developing dashboards to show progress and measure success of efforts.

Your experience looks like this:

  • 10+ years experience in Public Relations
  • Excellent communication skills, including spelling and grammar
  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience
  • Proficiency with the Associated Press stylebook
  • A cool-under-pressure manner
  • The ability to develop compelling message strategies.
  • The ability to take complex messages and make them understandable for a general audience
  • The ability to handle multiple projects effectively
  • The ability to work in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment
  • The ability to switch between working independently and as part of a team
  • Familiarity with or general affinity for science and technology

What's in it for you?

  • A fantastic, cohesive team to work with.
  • The opportunity to express your creativity in a wide range of media with a variety of topics.
  • Attractive benefits, including health insurance, retirement options, and 6 weeks’ time off per year.
