Liaison PR News Room

Job Alert: Writer/Account Coordinator

Job Location:
NW Portland, OR

Description:
Let’s start with the fun stuff: if you work here, you’ll get to specialize in creative tech. The type artists use to make everything from films and games to new buildings and VR. 3D is our common thread and we’ve spent 20 years specializing in its offshoots, which has helped us build up a roster of clients that legitimately fascinate people.

It’s a good place to be, which is why we need someone that loves this stuff as much as we do, or at the very least, sees a serious passion point and wants to know more. What we know is that even a trained PR vet will need training in our specialty, so what we are really looking for is a storyteller.

Writers and former journalists are very interesting to us. Tech PR vets that have contacts, experience and a passion for our topics should also get in touch. We need someone that can not only see an angle, but can develop it through any vessel we give you (article, release, social media, submitted content, blog post). You have to be a great writer. We want great thinkers. We are collectively standing on the precipice of 3D exploding (even further) into the mainstream. We need someone that can help us explain why that’s cool to anyone on the block.

If that’s you, then we need your help. Apply now.
