Senior Digital PR Manager (Media Relations)
WHO ARE WE?
Launch Potato is a digital media company with a portfolio of brands and technologies. As The Discovery and Conversion Company, Launch Potato’s mission is to be the most innovative, tech-enabled media company connecting consumers to the world’s leading brands.
The company is headquartered in vibrant downtown Delray Beach, Florida, with a unique international team across over a dozen countries. Launch Potato’s success comes from a diverse, energetic culture and a high-performing, entrepreneurial team.
You’ll work with talented marketers and content creators to grow brand awareness and build high-quality links to FinanceBuzz, and other Launch Potato entities. You’ll be responsible for managing and mentoring a team of media relations specialists who you’ll work with to build links and brand awareness to our sites. You’ll be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with relevant publishers, journalists, bloggers, and industry experts and obtaining placements with them. You’ll also stay on top of trends and help ideate data-driven stories, studies, and tools that both our readers and partners will be excited to share.
This is a hybrid role – you’ll be both a manager responsible for owning team development and hiring, as well as project management and process workflow as well as an individual contributor, pitching your own campaigns. The ideal candidate can easily switch between thinking strategically and tactically. You know what makes a great pitch and can coach others in the craft. You’re relentless in your pursuit of high-quality links, but aren’t afraid to pivot when your strategy isn’t working, relying on metrics to guide your decision-making.
