  • Work closely with Robinhood’s PR agency and attend weekly catch-up meetings
  • Form long-lasting relationships with press, bloggers, and key influencers
  • Manage all inbound press requests and evaluate their relevance and value
  • Keep up to date on opportunities surrounding awards and conferences, and closely follow and report on changes and job-changes in the media industry
  • Coordinate, schedule, and staff interviews with reporters and plan necessary trips to conferences

  • 2-3 years experience (at a PR agency or in-house)
  • Experience (successfully) pitching business, tech, and consumer media
  • Obsession with business and technology news 
  • Ability to manage and work on multiple projects and initiatives with different (and often changing) deadlines
