Firebrand is a boutique technology communications agency staffed by experienced marketers. We work with a roster of hand-picked B2B startups which are leaders in their field and backed by prominent VCs including a16z, GV, In-Q-Tel, Lightspeed Ventures, Menlo Ventures, Microsoft Ventures, and NEA.
You can expect an entrepreneurial culture, to work directly with a senior team, to be hands-on implementing integrated campaigns, and to help build a fantastic agency. We have no politics and no bureaucracy.
What we do have is a focus on great work, high levels of client service and expanding our skills. Communications and marketing are changing rapidly, and we intend to drive that evolution.
Our clients are technology startups – primarily with complex propositions which need clear positioning and messaging. At present, clients are in analytics, agile development, cloud infrastructure, virtual reality, enterprise messaging and legal tech.
We’re looking for a public relations senior account executive with robust client management and media relations skills, ideally with a focus on B2B. You’ll drive media strategy and be responsible for campaign implementation. Most of our campaigns are integrated across PR, social media, demand gen and digital marketing so you’ll get plenty of exposure to other disciplines.
The role is part of a senior marketing team well-versed in PR and digital — but you’ll be an expert at media relations. That’s not to say you won’t also be required to manage the program or write content — you will! Other members of the team will include marketing strategists, content developers and demand gen specialists. We’re not split into a classic agency structure with account management or creatives. Everyone works directly with our clients and well… we’re all creative.
We expect you to have a firm grasp of running a successful and growing PR program. This will include media relations, influencer relations, the events program, speaker and awards, organic social channel management. Of course, this must all operate efficiently, within budget and be measured and evaluated according to industry best practice.
To apply please email your resume to us a [email protected] with the header ‘PR SAE’ in the title and a link to your LinkedIn profile in the body copy. Please only apply if you meet the requirements – time is valuable at an agency. No phone calls or agencies please at this stage. We’ll be in touch with the strongest candidates. Good luck!
