Seasoned PR Pro? We’ve Got an Account Manager job for you!

We’re SHIFT Communications. We’re what happens when you combine social media goodness with traditional PR. We’re what you get when 100 brainy, fun people actually like working (and playing) together while crushing it on kick a$$ consumer/tech clients.

We’re the place where killer ideas are born and where office politics goes to die. Not the other way around, like some other places you may have worked.

We give you a voice and a spotlight in exchange for your passion. You’re good at what you do, and we’re good about helping you shine. Whether you’re working on tech or cool consumer startup clients or major brands, we’re looking for a person who isn’t content with the status quo. We’re looking for a person to punch above his/her weight class. We’re looking to challenge you with new opportunity, and for you to challenge us by thinking differently, creatively, nimbly.

Importantly, we’re looking for folks who know how to play nicely. Are you quick to provide solutions in the face of problems? Do you value the success of your fellow colleagues as much as your own?

Cool. You just might be a SHIFTer.

In a nutshell, here’s what Account Managers do on our teams (hint: a lot!)

Media Relations

You’re a media hound who knows how to get and measure PR results. You’ll drive the media relations program by ensuring established account strategy translates into editorial measureable (rockin’!) results


Writing is in your blood. When it comes to deadlines you also have ice in your veins. In concert with senior managers, you’ll develop short and long-term PR strategy plans, presentations and proposals, with a focus on the practical execution of account strategy and anticipated results
You’ll also server as Editor-n-Chief for your team. No funny hats, though.

Social Media

You understand the tricks, tools, tenor of the trade. You’ll provide counsel to clients on effective strategies for incorporating social media elements into programs and develop well-thought out plans and proposals that provide a roadmap for execution.

Team Management

You’re a manager, and managers manage. You’ll provide support and direction to the team, serving as a role model and mentor on all professional matters including client service, industry networking, professionalism, teamwork and quality control;
Effectively manage the daily execution of client activity, delegating tactical assignments, reviewing all client facing documents and ensuring the team is performing at the highest level

And much, much more!

Bachelor’s degree in PR, Communications, Journalism or related field.
5 years of prior PR Agency or a mix of client side PR experience.

Think you can handle all of that? If you know you can crush this stuff, want to hear from you. Trust us, there’s a lot of work to be done, but also a heck of a lot of fun to be had at SHIFT.
