Self-funded, globally distributed, and growing quickly, Crain’s named Muck Rack one of the best places to work in 2019, 2020, and 2021! We value resilience, transparency, ownership, and customer devotion and infuse these values into everything we do.

We’re growing quickly, and we’re looking for a process-oriented and data-minded Associate Media Researcher to join our Editorial team and make a big impact. 

As an Associate Media Researcher, you’ll be working alongside the Editorial Director to expand, update, and maintain Muck Rack’s database of journalists and content producers.
