Senior Account Executive

What We Need

This Senior Account Executive co-pilots accounts with account leads and will lead the first drafts of creative work and support the generation of out-of-the-box ideas.

About Us:

Codeword is an agency of creative problem solvers who believe marketing doesn’t have to suck.

We are a fast-growing, fast-moving team of writers, editors, designers, strategists, videographers, PR mavens, and even a few traditional marketers. We have an incredible roster of big and small tech clients for whom we manage editorial and social channels, develop smart marketing strategies, drive news coverage, and create big ideas.

Codeword is a remote-first agency, though we have physical offices in NYC, SF, and SLC that we won’t make you visit.

About You:

3+ years of experience

A passionate storyteller and trendspotter

Motivated, enthusiastic self-starter able to complete tasks with some support from your account leads

Which also means you’re both ambitious and flexible

You’re excited about building first-name-basis relationships with press, influencers and analysts across B2B and/or B2C tech

You’re an executor that loves to take the first stab at writing, pitching or creative ideating

You know how to ask the right questions, find answers out yourself, and present the problem with some recommendations

About This Role:

The Senior Account Executive co-pilots accounts with account leads (maximum of 6). You are in the business of providing long-term value to clients, and executing day-to-day account activities that are integral to the health of the program.

You will lead the first drafts of creative work and support the generation of out-of-the-box ideas. You’re ready to start moving into a mentorship role with junior talent, supervising them on client-facing written work.

This is one of the heaviest media relations roles on the PR team with an expectation that you’ll be proactively developing hard-hitting story angles that regularly turn into high-impact media results for clients.

You’re growing your own industry reputation and Rolodex, and love meeting with journalists, influencers, and industry experts. You’re also ready and willing to attend trade shows, conferences, and other events as a representative of Codeword.

Previous experience in the tech (B2B or B2C) and startup worlds is critical, as well as a deep understanding of the shifting earned media landscape and how to measure the value of a PR win.

You’ll thrive if you’re an energetic and nimble self-starter that’s comfortable with shifting timelines and priorities. The right candidate doesn’t shy away from giving or receiving feedback (even to managers), shooting their shot with a crazy idea, or being a media relations advisor to senior executives.

What You’ll Be Doing:

Day-to-day PR program execution on a maximum of 6 accounts, including media relations, supporting the account lead, mentoring junior talent, client relations, and reporting

PR strategy and creative campaign building support for your clients, alongside the Director of Strategy, Brandon Carter, day-to-day account leads and a S/VP

Support building industry-leading reports on PR program ROI with our Insights & Analytics team

Scoring high-impact, top-tier media placements for your clients across all media verticals and mediums

Supporting your account teams in building lasting relationships with clients

Bringing creative ideas to your clients outside of traditional PR, utilizing Codeword’s full service capabilities

Nurture and motivate up-and-coming talent through mentorship

Explain complex tech and industry-changing ideas to journalists in three sentences or less

Participate in media training sessions and interviews

Utilizing your writing skills to craft thoughtful content and communications for and with clients and media

Your Compensation:

People – that's you! – are the heart of our business, and we believe a culture of pay transparency benefits both Codeword and our team members’ careers.

For this role we’re looking to pay a salary of $60,000 - $85,000, depending on experience.

Your Benefits:

Flexible work hours

Minimum 20 days paid vacation annually

401k + financial wellness support

Health Insurance (medical, dental, life, pet, mental health services)

Home office allowance

Bi-annual Wellness Credits

Monthly Technology Credit (to offset internet / phone costs)

Every role is bonus eligible

Comprehensive Parental Leave Policy

A few more things you should know about Codeword:

The Codeword dream: Make good money doing work you care about with people you like.

We love our clients (they write the checks!), which means maintaining a high bar for the creativity, smarts, responsiveness, and communication skills we offer them.

We’re around 100 people, big enough to handle large-scale marketing programs, small enough that you’ll have an impact on our culture.

We’re a friendly team, we look after each other, and we grow our careers together.

We respect everyone’s personal life. After-hours emails are strongly frowned upon, night and weekend work is very rare, and employees are encouraged to pursue their side-hustles.

We’re all grownups here, and we trust each other to get the work done, whether at home or in an office or a time zone on the other side of the world.

We believe in defaulting to openness. Our calendars, our salary tiers, and our doors are open for all to see. (Except for secret client stuff, which we guard with our lives.)

We’re a proud member of the global WE Communications family.

Equal Opportunity: Codeword provides equal employment opportunity and doesn’t discriminate against employees or applicants because of age, race, color, religion, gender, national origin, veteran status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, or other legally protected class status.

Diversity and Inclusion: Codeword works hard to foster a diverse team and an inclusive workplace where everyone thrives.

We aren’t a traditional agency, so we like to hire people who don’t necessarily fit the agency mold or check all the “right” boxes. If you’re on the fence about applying, please do!
