Analytics Associate

New York, NY /
Public Relations – Brand Studio /
Full-Time
Sunshine Sachs is proud to represent clients across many industries including entertainment, social good, tech and lifestyle and we tell their stories through a variety of mediums.  We know that even during the toughest times, our responsibility to our clients and each other can bring meaningful and long-lasting impact for those affected the most. We’re proud of each and every campaign we execute, but you may be wondering why we don’t have more than a landing page as our website. While many of our clients are household names (you know them, we’re sure of it), our digital footprint is purposefully small. We fly under the radar and we like it that way.
 
If you are fired up and ready to do good, join us! 

We have an immediate opening for an Analytics Associate (AE) for our Social and Digital Team in New York.

You’re it for us!

    • Working with senior management to respond to client requests and ensure requests are taken care of in an efficient manner.
    • Staying on top of trends, industry news and changing platforms across all forms of social media.

    • You are proactive about recommending new vendors or tools to establish relationships with according to our business needs.
    • You are a strong writer – persuasive, concise, creative, and quick!
    • You are a strategic thinker, bring new ideas to the table, and love a good brainstorm.
    • You have strong decision-making abilities and accountability; this is an important role, own it!
    • You have an innate curiosity and an entrepreneurial spirit…have a suggestion on making something better? We encourage you to do it!
    • You are incredibly organized, detailoriented (see what I did there?), and able to excel at managing multiple projects simultaneously.
    • You enjoy overdelivering rather than meeting expectations and take genuine pride in being part of something good.
