The position of Publicist is responsible for pitching topics, interviews and written works on behalf of all clients, calling and emailing media outlets to secure interviews, excerpts, and serial deals for our authors, as well as being the initial point of contact and clearinghouse for inbound media queries.

A publicist must be a news enthusiast who is able to identify opportunities and risks for clients and is capable of mastering a client’s voice to properly represent them to the media. This person also must show creativity and have excellent communication skills not only to collaborate with a team and maintain client satisfaction, but also to specifically cultivate relationships with reporters and producers as a media liaison. He or she must have an exceptional work ethic and be a self-starter, as this can be a remote position.

As a Brand Designer at JDA, the ideal candidate is extremely detail-oriented with impeccable design abilities and a distinct eye for color, pattern and typography in brand identity and system design. Roughly half of this role will be true display of craft and conceptual brand identity and system design, and the other half production design and iterating. You excel in an independent, fast-paced environment, can juggle a variety of daily projects, while being absent of ego. Someone who nerds out over every brand touchpoint and the details of creating and upholding brand standards and is an expert in creating beautiful and persuasive design is ideal for this role. You strive to embed and uphold brand strategy and make intentional brand decisions. You will work in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team including researchers, strategists, copywriters, developers and other specialists as required. The position will work closely under the guidance and leadership of our Director of Brand.

The Copywriter will work closely with Designers, Marketing Specialists, and the Accounts team; reporting directly to the Creative Director and having numerous interactions with all members of the creative team.

Note to Applicants: This Copywriter role requires range and versatility. We are looking for a flexible writer who can seamlessly switch between content forms; equally excited to be defining foundational brand copy to crafting ad copy to long-form web content, in addition to editing and proofing. The agency is fast-paced, and the workload is ever changing. A self-confident, well-rounded writer eager to contribute and measure impact will flourish here.
