Want to get into the PR fast lane?
Ever worked for one of those companies where you check your watch every five minutes, willing it to say “time to go home”? Where happy hour is always hours away? Where making instant coffee is often the highlight of the day?
Yeah, we’re not one of those companies. Work with us, and the average day might find you pitching the world’s best reporters on a super stealth start-up, building a Facebook page, dreaming up a new brand tagline, and handling a breaking crisis. All before lunch.
LEWIS is a global boutique tech PR firm, meaning we offer our clients global scale with plenty of personal attention. In our DC office, we represent leaders in the worlds of tech. We’ve launched many of these to the public, and work tirelessly to keep them front of mind with their key audiences, through a variety of channels, including social media.
Unlike some other firms though, we don’t view social media as a separate entity. We firmly believe it has to be integrated into a strategic communications campaign, that has compelling content, and smart people, at its core. So, we hire smart people and get them to create great content that can be spread virally through both traditional channels (like press) and emerging channels (like Twitter), to reach the right people at the right time in the right way.
Of course, that starts with being obsessively, compulsively in love with great content, and consuming it any chance you get. Blogs, TV, print, online, viral, radio, semaphore – we want you to be voracious in your media appetite.
We work and play hard, because we love what we do. Want to get on board? Read on.
What we can offer you:
The Account Coordinator role at LEWIS is a role that rewards a proactive nature, enthusiasm and drive. Your professional skills will be enhanced every day you spend at the company, and you’ll be working with a team that has your back. Every time.
You will play a key and visible role in the execution of integrated PR programs for a range of B2B and consumer tech clients at LEWIS. You will primarily be focused on learning about media relations from the ground up, and will handle everything from research and media list management to learning how to successfully position our clients through proactive engagement and relationship building with media, bloggers and social media influencers. All the while, you'll receive intensive training through our LEWIS Learning program.
Want to learn how to translate all that media goodness into measurable results? By working with us, you’ll get a deep insight into how PR and social media can deliver tangible ROI, using sophisticated tools to monitor and measure results, awareness levels and where the key influencers are.
If you can talk your way out of a parking ticket while explaining how the meter works, you’re just what we’re looking for. Add in killer writing skills and the ability to manage both clients and a close team, and we’d like you to press the button where it says ‘apply’.
What you can offer us:
You’re bright, personable and technology-savvy, with a passion for both traditional and social media, and a broad range of experience and interests. You will need a bachelor's degree in a related field with an above average GPA and have excellent multi-tasking/organizational skills. Usage and an avid interest in social media channels will also help get you through the door.
We’d love you to have at least one or two PR internships under your belt, preferably in an agency environment, and hope you will be articulate, detail-oriented, creative, energetic and ambitious. Oh, and a strong sense of humor is key. Please.

100% paid health, vision, dental and life insurance
