The Role You’ll Play

The New York Times. The Wall Street Journal. Axios. The biggest names in the media business know CB Insights as the go-to resource for tech. We need a strong, driven communications leader to take it to the next level.

The Senior Director/Director will own the planning, pitching and placing of strategic communications efforts that elevate our company’s story, brand and corporate positioning.

Media connections are a must.

The successful candidate will be both strategic and tactical, understanding how to craft a narrative over time about who we are and what we do without losing sight of day-to-day pitching.

This is a great opportunity to join the PR team of one of the fastest-growing tech startups in NYC.
