Job Description

We seek a versatile, creative, and highly organized Communications Manager to work across the SafetyWing and Plumia brands, reporting to our VP of Communications and collaborating closely with design, growth, product, and community across the company and its products.

You’ll be responsible for managing, optimizing, and improving both output and systems to support our operations across the communications function, which includes social media (with some copywriting), newsletters and editorials, conferences and public speaking, press and media, and product and growth marketing.

We place a high value on four communications principles across our work at SafetyWing:

  • Accuracy: the quality or state of being correct or precise
  • Brevity: concise and exact use of words in writing or speech
  • Clarity: the quality of being coherent and intelligible
  • Substance: the quality of being critical, valid, or significant
We don’t like things to be conventional or boring, so the challenge is to balance these principles with boldness and personality.
