Account Executive (Austin)

| Austin
What we do: 
Headquartered in the heart of Austin, TX, TrendKite is blazing the trails of category creation, taking earned media out of the era of media monitoring and into the age of Digital PR.
This is a time of profound change as all aspects of life, including business, are impacted by the disruption of traditional journalism and the rise of social networks and other forms of communication. With this change, the PR industry has been redefined. Digital PR is the intersection of traditional PR, content marketing, social media, influencer management, and search. By harnessing artificial intelligence and big data analytics to optimize the impact public relations has on a brand’s reputation, website traffic and business goals, TrendKite’s platform is transforming the way the world views earned media, allowing modern PR professionals to create deeper connections with customers and prospects. Companies like Adidas, Unilever, Samsung, Expedia, Google, Home Depot and thousands more turn PR coverage into real business impact using TrendKite.
