Our culture is fun, fast-paced, high-energy, and intense. The PR Manager position is not for the faint of heart; you must be organized, tenacious, energetic, and funny. This is a crucial role at our company, where we work and play hard. Agency experience is a must, meaning, you are an expert at juggling lots of balls and telling stories.

This individual will own public relations, as well as client management for select accounts, with strategic direction and evaluation from the management team. Our clients deserve the best, so bring your ‘A’ game.
