Description

HubSpot’s Public Relations & Brand team is looking for a sage storyteller of software, someone with good ties to industry media who can effectively represent the HubSpot brand across Ireland and the UK market. A member of the global Brand & Buzz team within Marketing, this role requires a high level of organization, sociability, creativity, resourcefulness, and project management skills. Based in our EMEA Headquarters in Dublin, the PR Manager will drive regional media-focused campaigns and other marketing initiatives as directed by the Senior Global Media Relations Manager in conjunction with the Director of Marketing, EMEA.

 

HubSpot’s presence in EMEA has grown considerably in the three years since HubSpot made its first foray into the market with the opening of the Dublin office and we are now in an incredible position to double down on our efforts across the UK and Ireland to increase awareness of the brand across the region. And we need just the right person to help us get the word out.

 

HubSpot’s unique approach to culture is one of the things that sets the company apart, making it a special place to work. Our commitment to autonomy, flexibility, and transparency prompted the creation of our Culture Code, which has gone viral, amassing more than 2M views. A movement that was born out of our global headquarters in Cambridge has permeated throughout our global offices with our Dublin office leading the charge on international expansion and setting an example for the rest of the organization. All of which has contributed to helping make HubSpot a Best Place to Work in the eyes of Glassdoor, Fortune, Entrepreneur, and Inc.
