Director of Public Relations

For you, PR has never been about spin--itās all about telling an authentic story that resonates. And weāve got a story we think youāll love to share. At Plated we're restoring and redefining cooking culture, food discovery, and quality dinners for busy Americans. We were born from an epic journey of our co-founders spanning from the mountains of Peru to the famed Le Cordon Bleu culinary school, and from the labs of Georgia Tech to the stately acres of Harvard Business School.

Now weāre a 500+ mission-driven team building and refining a proprietary experience to help people experience a truly better way to cook at home - fresh, artisanal, seasonal food sustainably sourced and delivered in just the right amounts, dramatically reduced food waste, and unparalleled culinary options with personalized choice. We're hiring a Director of Public Relations to join our team and help us share the story of this unique brand and experience, and weād love for it to be you.

Our Director of PR will:
ā¢ Drive awareness of Platedās innovative thought leadership and vision around how food is grown, distributed, prepared, and consumed.
ā¢ Select and partner with agencies to drive PR strategy and execution, including media relations and experiential events.
ā¢ Develop a full communications library.
ā¢ Collaborate with the Platedās People Team and others on internal and external communications, building awareness and education of the Plated story.

We're looking for:
ā¢ 8+ yearsā of PR experience with at least 3+ in-house at a strong experiential or internet/tech consumer brand - agency experience a plus!
ā¢ Bachelorās in Public Relations, Communications or related field a plus.
ā¢ An exceptional communicator.
ā¢ A PR strategist with strong media relations network and understanding of media needs.
ā¢ Proactive, reliable, responsible.
ā¢ Experience advising senior leaders.

We truly value your interest. All applications will be kept confidential and will receive a response. We look forward to hearing from you,

Markesa Phelps
