Skills required for the job include, but aren’t limited to:
+ Superior communication skills, especially the ability to strike up a conversation with just about anyone.
+ Fantastic writing skills, for the creation of pitches and social media posts.
+ Strong rolodex of press contacts in the NYC business press, and, even better, in San Francisco as well (think: Quartz, Forbes, Fortune, Fast Company, Business Insider, etc).
+ Preferred experience in podcast, video, and/or other longer-form types of storytelling.
+ Preferred social/web analytics skills, including the ability to forecast and report what success looks like.
+ Genuine passion for a story well-told that engages and transports its audience.
+ Willingness toward regular travel between our SF and NY offices.
We believe it’s worthy work to envision, believe in, and fight for greatness.
