Director of Public Relations permanent position at Portland OR
Portland, OR, United States
Title: Director of Public Relations

Client products are diverse in thermal imaging and other detection technologies, and so are the markets they sell to. Client is looking for a rock star Director of Public Relations who will design and implement an overall public relations strategy that will help make our client a household name.
The Director of PR is a new position that involves equal parts “big picture strategy” and “nuts and bolts” implementation. In other words, you will need to be a thought leader who can mind the details. And because it’s a new role, this could be your chance to build your dream job.
Client is a technology company, so you will ideally have a background working in the tech space. We don’t expect you to know thermal science up front, but you’ll need to be a quick study. Client will launch multiple products every year, and are expanding their reach into consumer markets.
You’ll report to the Senior VP/Chief Marketing Officer and manage a mid-sized team.

You are a collaborative, team player with a high degree of initiative, drive, accountability, judgment, and flexibility
You are an outstanding writer, editor and grammar cop (Knowledge of AP Style is a plus)
You are undaunted at the thought of explaining thermal technology accurately and authoritatively on the spot without notes
You have demonstrated experience managing and inspiring small teams of employees who would say good things about you
You are eager to travel domestically and internationally–up to 50 percent of the time
You are adept at working with journalists, editors, and bloggers working on deadline
