Your responsibilities will include:
• Working closely with our Brand Engagement Manager to prioritize opportunities and potential marketing campaigns
• Growing relationships with journalists and other sources within the business credit community

• Not a remote position, but you can work out of either our Santa Monica, CA or Allentown, PA offices
