Haymaker is looking for an account director to join our fast-growing team. We run the communications strategies of exceptional technology companies, including Etsy, Grubhub, Handy, and SeatGeek. We also organize the 1100-member New York Media Meetup and donate a meaningful percentage of our revenue to charity each year.

  • Providing strategic counsel to some of the largest startups in NYC
  • Speaking with some of the most influential reporters in media
  • Contributing edits and writing for press releases, bylined articles, and media contacts
  • Devouring industry news
  • Developing messaging and strategic programming for new campaigns
  • Working with junior team members to set action plans, stay ahead of client questions, and make Haymaker a better place to work

What you bring to the table:

  • Five-to-eight years of experience in an agency or in-house setting
  • Exceptional writing and verbal communication skills
  • Project management experience in a fast-paced work environment
  • The ability to work well with others
  • Natural curiosity and resourcefulness to get the job done

Not a perfect fit? We still think you should apply! Intellectual horsepower and ambition can make up for it in the right candidate. Salary and benefits are highly competitive.
