Idea Grove is one of the fastest-growing inbound PR and digital marketing firms in the Southwest representing technology leaders in enterprise software, cloud computing, open data, and mobile. We even have clients that are venturing into technology of the future like virtual reality and autonomous driving. We may be boutique-sized, but we’ve beat out some of the largest and most prestigious firms in the business to earn our client roster. We are committed to providing value to our clients every day – they know they can count on us to stay on the cutting edge of our industry while always delivering consistent, high-quality work. We’re also equally dedicated to each other. At Idea Grove, we truly operate as a team. Our agency is fully integrated, and you’ll have exposure to all facets of marketing. As our CEO says, working here will put you on the CMO career path.

We aren’t all hard work around here, though. We regularly escape the office for happy hours and group activities like Rangers games, the State Fair of Texas, Whirly Ball and Top Golf. Our employees are also rewarded for their tenure by work from home days once a week and discretionary (unlimited!) time off.

What We’re Looking For:

We are seeking an Account Executive with 2-3 years of progressive experience in the public relations/communications field. You will play a pivotal role in managing the execution of integrated PR programs for a range of tech clients. You will primarily be focused on proactive engagement and relationship building with media, leading to positive awareness and coverage for each client.

You will be accountable for delivering work on time and within budget, and producing high-quality work and exceptional results for clients.

Like all agencies, we’re looking for candidates who have exceptional organizational skills and can juggle multiple accounts and assignments with various deadlines. What will make you a cultural fit is if you are a leader with natural curiosity and self-motivation to learn and expand your abilities.

Qualified candidates must have:

At least 2 to 3 years of progressive experience in the public relations/communications field
A Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university in communications, public relations, marketing or a related field
