After a year of uncertainty and remote work for much of the global workforce, businesses are on the cusp of a new era and way of working—hybrid. With people craving greater flexibility in their work lives, business leaders are faced with new challenges of how to shift their organization’s culture, policies and technology. This is a new, global challenge, and many are looking to technology companies to help chart the path forward.
We are hiring an Account Manager to join our Modern Work team.
In this role, you will work with a Fortune 100 company to help develop and tell the story of how the next phase of work will unfold for people around the world, and what technology solutions will help companies be successful with more geographically diverse workforces than ever before. You will help to lead the team, counsel clients on media strategy, developing fresh story ideas and 360-degree communications plans—from concept through execution. You will draw on the external landscape and audience insights to bring forward strategies for breaking into the cultural dialogue. You will develop relationships and work with top tier media contacts across business, technology and mainstream publications.
The ideal candidate is a seasoned communicator who thrives in a collaborative, fast-paced environment. Who excels on a team and with leadership who value curiosity, creativity, proactive energy and accountability above always having the right answer. We are looking for someone who loves technology and working with journalists, who has a passion for both client service and nurturing an internal team. Someone who sees a challenge for the opportunity it presents rather than a roadblock.
WE Communications is one of the largest independent communications and integrated marketing agencies in the world, with 24 offices and more than 1300 employees worldwide. What connects us is our love of storytelling, solving complicated and strategic challenges, working hand-in-hand with our teams and clients to bring stories to life.
Our team mantra is #bettertogether. We are hard-working, flexible, feel like a big family and love to laugh. While this past year gave us a greater glimpse into one another’s homes, we have always shared pets, hobbies and our favorite books/movies/tv shows. We work hard to balance peoples’ personal time and needs with those of the business and are looking for new ways to embrace and live the hybrid work model ourselves. We have teammates in Seattle, Portland OR, San Francisco, Austin and New York—we value our teammates’ diverse life perspectives and experiences and work hard to ensure every voice is heard. We care deeply about what brings you joy and what you want from your career—and how you can grow it at WE.
The position can be based out of any of WE Communication’s offices and will work remotely until our physical offices reopen.
