Beekeeper Group is always on the lookout for the best and the brightest to join our growing, award-winning hive. We have received Webby Awards, Telly Awards, Communicator Awards, and several Sabre nominations among other industry distinctions. Our highest achievement to date was being honored as PR Week’s 2014 Boutique Agency of the Year, which is known as the “Oscars” of the communications industry.
Essential to our success is the diversity that team members bring to our company culture and client engagements. Beekeeper is an equal opportunity employer committed to building and maintaining a multicultural workforce where differences are valued, respected, and encouraged.
Our work combines trusted advocacy methods and tools with emerging media platforms to deliver upon our clients’ communications, advocacy, and public outreach goals. We are looking for people who love a challenge and are not afraid of tackling multiple projects for a variety of clients simultaneously. Experience working for an advocacy organization, public affairs agency, political consulting firm, or campaign is a major plus – but not a deal breaker.
The team here at Beekeeper includes digital and content strategists, professional writers, project managers, illustrators, animators, graphic designers, mobile app developers, web developers, and videographers. Our bees are detailed-oriented, self-starters with a passion for advocacy and digital communications. Candidates should be able to work well independently or as part of a team in our creative, yet casual, fast-paced environment. If you aren’t afraid of diving in and getting it done, we want to hear from you!
