We’re looking for an organized, bright, motivated individual who has a superior skill set for connecting with others, finding sometimes obscure information on Google, and bringing an analytical approach to every new interaction. Do you love following the latest news and research from a variety of publishers? Are you good at persuading others? If playing an important part in setting up mutually beneficial relationships gets you excited, then this could be the job for you.
Our media relations team helps our clients reach their goals of increasing brand awareness, building high authority links, and attracting their target audience by building and maintaining relationships with top-tier publishers and influencers in a variety of verticals. The key is providing the media with well-researched, unique, and exclusive data-driven content for their audiences. As a member of the media relations team, you’ll be responsible for PR and media outreach intended to pair our clients’ content with the best fit publisher whose audience would find it most interesting and valuable.
This entry-level position requires an innovative, independent individual who is comfortable working in a fast-paced environment.
More than one string to your bow?
Much of what you’ll do will involve reaching out to journalists and editors through clearly written, highly-engaging emails. When you’re not doing this, your writing skills will be put to use in other aspects of our work, helping write content for some of Fractl’s biggest clients in the travel and entertainment sectors. For this reason, a passion for writing and enthusiasm for contributing to our growth in multiple ways are essential.
