Job Description:

Title: Director of Public Relations 
Type: Full-Time
Location: Portland, OR, United States
Job Description:
  • 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.
  • Develop and coordinate internal and external public relations strategies in support of six distinct business lines
  • Be the chief point of contact for media (Hint: your phone will be your constant companion)
  • Find strategies for increasing exposure in mass media, trade magazines, and online channels
  • Work in concert with vertical marketing directors, executive staff, and product managers to ensure PR plans are accurate, on point, and adhere to client branding standards
  • Develop high impact media campaigns, especially in support of international product launches
  • Promote client as a thought leader in the detection and thermal imaging industries
  • Manage your department budget and work schedules
  • Oversee and champion client’s social media activities, collaborating with internal support staff
Requested Skills:
  • You are an experienced PR professional with strong knowledge and relationships with key media
  • You have demonstrated success building online and social media presence for a global company
  • You ideally have combination of agency and in-house experience (but especially in-house)
  • You have managed the PR campaigns of major product launches—from preparing media kits to orchestrating press events
  • 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
Desired Experience:
  • Prior experience in a PR role within a global company, preferably a high tech or manufacturing company that markets to consumers.
  • Bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • 10 - 15 years relevant experience, including experience in PR implementation and proven ability managing domestic and international projects.
  • Proven effectiveness in developing and executing media plans.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills - ability to work with executives across diverse groups and translate complex concepts into clear, concise and compelling messages for the media.
  • Proficient in measuring and reporting on the progress of public relations initiatives against goals.
