The ASAPP communications team is evolving the conversation around artificial intelligence and the benefits it creates for people and business. We’re looking for a creative, self-motivated and well-connected PR, or technology reporter, professional to drive external communications for artificial intelligence and machine learning programs.
ASAPP is looking for a sharp, enthusiastic technology-driven senior PR manager, who is excited by the positive impact artificial intelligence can have on people’s lives. You will have seven-plus years of experience, and success, pitching the technologist’s press. Enjoy reading academic papers?

You will be the conduit for hundreds of journalists, and influencers, who are trying to understand and help their readers understand the new paradigm of artificial intelligence.

  • Excellent written communicator with an understanding of how to create content that reaches multiple audiences across paid, earned and social media channels.
