Job Description

Love PR? We've Got an Account Coordinator 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, technology and healthcare 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 cool startup clients or established 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 Coordinators do on our teams (hint: a lot!)

Media Relations

Build a range of key foundation materials to ensure that your team has what it needs to knock clients' media metrics out of the park.

Serve as the eyes and ears of the team to make sure all opportunities to help clients shine are relayed to the team & to clients.

Act as a logistical quarterback to make sure things happen when and where we need them to happen.


Take lead in developing clients' EOY, quarterly, monthly and weekly PR activity reports.

Speaking Opportunities & Awards

You'll own this important program. It's up to you to maintain accurate databases on targeted shows, speaking venues, and awards. You'll write killer submissions. You'll help our clients shine.


Exhibit attention to detail and compliance with the basic principles of business writing and AP style guidelines in all written materials provided to team, clients and prospects.

Creative writing ability a huge plus.

Social Media

You need to be savvy about the social sphere, constantly monitoring and listening wherever our clients' audiences live. Help the team, and clients, understand when and where to engage.


Bachelor's degree in PR, Communications, Journalism or related field.

1-2 years of prior experience, including previous internships

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.
