LaunchSquad identifies and communicates stories for companies we love. You’ve probably heard of a few: American Giant, Uber, Coursera and DWave. From consumer and enterprise technology start ups to lifestyle and media companies, we partner with our clients, immerse ourselves in their product or services and build strategic public relations campaigns and original content marketing programs that resonate with key audiences. LaunchSquad’s Boston office is growing and we’re looking for an established storyteller and strategist to join our team and lead program development and execution for our clients.

Public Relations Managers lead four client accounts and teach junior teammates the core fundamentals necessary to produce amazing public relations and content marketing programs, delight clients and produce lasting results. Public Relations Managers are responsible for collaborating with start up founders and LaunchSquad leaders to craft a story, make strategic recommendations and deliver programs that help companies reach business goals.

Public Relations Managers have a masterful command of thought leadership, content marketing and media relations strategy and execution. They use these skills to identify opportunities and build programs with impact. Public Relations Managers are responsible for guiding the client and leading the day-to-day operations of account teams. They are comfortable expressing a point of view around the right work and strategies, challenging teams and individuals to do their best and driving results through exemplary action-focused leadership.
