Here’s a sample of what else the role entails and why you may be a perfect fit: Obviously, you’ll be responsible for crafting and delivering compelling stories and commentary to the media, so while it would be nice if you have established media contacts in technology, business, and automotive media, what’s more important is that you can recognize what makes a great pitch and will bring a fearlessness to building relationships with new media connections. You’ll be on the forefront of informing and developing media relations strategies, so we need a critical thinker who approaches challenges with curiosity and creativity. You’ll be working directly with clients and spokespeople, so we need a charismatic, professional who thinks quickly on their feet and projects a friendly confidence.

You’ll grow, learn and evolve here at Airfoil. We’re looking for someone who will invest in Airfoil’s success, just as we will invest in you for the long-term.
