Description

Knock Twice – a fast growing hybrid PR and content communications agency with offices in San Francisco, New York, and Salt Lake City – needs an Account Executive with 2-4 years of experience who is ready to hit the ground running.

This position will evolve and expand over time as the company grows. You’ll be part of the New York PR team and report into the PR Director. Perfect candidate must be able to write, be interested in technology, and want to work on-site in our New York City office.

Here’s what you should be comfortable with:

  • Research: lists, reading, social, homework, etc.
  • Media: reading, outreach, getting to KNOW people, coffees with them, beers, making their lives easier, knowing what makes them tick
  • Writing: learn the basics, and how to pitch anything to anyone
  • Biz Dev: go get us more clients! We’ll pay you a bonus if you do
  • Management: learn how to manage up and manage down – run teams, and run your bosses
  • Prioritization: this world isn’t linear, learn how to shuffle, juggle, rearrange, and kick ass the WHOLE time

No matter your title, you’ll need to do all these things. And, the better you are and the higher you climb, the more we’ll expect of you. That said, we balance ourselves with a healthy dose of reality and we know we’re not driving ambulances here. So, take your job seriously enough to be excellent, but know how to laugh at yourself and when to walk away from the screen.

Responsibilities:

  • Research, outline, write, edit and proofread all client materials including press releases, pitches and case studies
  • Support senior staff on each account; shadow senior account execs and account supervisors in the lead role of at least one account
  • Maintain client activity trackers and drive client reporting process
  • Develop client account materials: media lists, speaking and awards lists, editorial calendars
  • Manage news monitoring process: client and competitor roundups
  • Contribute to client PR plans and messaging
  • Create and maintain relationships with media, analysts and influencers relevant to clients
  • Manage interns
Requirements

Basic Requirements:

  • 1 - 3 years of experience in PR agencies or corporate communications
  • Desire to build strong business and trade press and analyst relationships
  • Team-oriented attitude and willingness to pitch in wherever needed
  • Desire to learn and advance within the agency
  • Creativity and integrity, we are a PR agency, after all
  • Ability to be strategic and work well under pressure
  • Motivated, enthusiastic self-starter able to complete tasks within a set deadline
  • Strong time management skills
  • Strong communications skills (both verbal and written)
  • Interest in working with startups plus or you’re just super comfortable with a fast-paced, ambiguous environment, plus you’ve never met a Google app or doc you don’t know how to use
  • A bachelor’s degree or relevant experience

 Please send salary requirements along with resume and cover letter.
