Overview

maslansky + partners is a communication strategy firm grounded in a rigorous approach to messaging research. We work with Fortune 500 companies, trade associations, non-profits, and public policy groups around the world to help them address their most important communication and messaging challenges.  

 

Do you have a knack for words and how they affect people ? Is writing a skill that comes naturally? If so, we may have the perfect role for you 

 

We’re seeking a Senior Language Strategist with exemplary critical thinking, persuasive writing, and project management skills to join our team.  

 

Here at m + p, every member of our team is:  

  • A researcher – we conduct qualitative and quantitative research to understand how audiences respond to different ways of talking about something and why 
  • A convincing writer & speaker – we help clients engage and persuade their audiences by writing in a way that resonates and compels them to act.  At m + p, we’re 100% behind your ability to express a point of view. We don’t really care what it is, as long as you have one, and can convey it persuasively. When we walk into a room, we want people to remember we were there.  We lead with substance, but you also need a demonstrable ability to present well. 
  • A strategist – anyone can find out what an audience thinks; we bring an analytic and strategic approach to messaging. 
  • A consultant – we constantly imagine the world through the eyes of someone else: our clients’, what are their challenges externally and internally and how can we help them? Our clients’ audiences: how do we factor “their truth” into effective messaging?  

 

Our firm is guided by the simple idea that it’s not what you SAY that matters, it’s what they HEAR. We use research to advise our clients what to say, what not to say, and why it matters.  We passionately believe that for PR, marketing, and advocacy efforts to be successful, they must have the right words, phrases, and framing. Though small, we have a LARGE impact.

Responsibilities

What You’ll Do: 

  • Manage client engagements and drive strategy: Our clients come to us to communicate more effectively on challenging communication issues, including corporate reputation and branding; public affairs and issue advocacy; new product launches and repositioning.  We work with them to develop a comprehensive understanding of potential approaches to communication.  
  • Use market research to create meaningful, actionable, and interesting communication advice for clients. 
  • Mentor and help train junior staff members 

Qualifications

What we’re looking for: 

  • 4-6 years of experience in corporate strategy, communication, public affairs, market research, advertising, marketing, or another field that you can convince us is relevant 
  • An ability to juggle and prioritize simultaneous projects and responsibilities… while on the road (and nowadays, virtually) 
  • Experience with brainstorming ideas about compelling, persuasive, credible messaging 
  • Strong analytic skills so that you can understand and synthesize perspectives that may be very different from your own 
  • Strong writing and presentation skills (bonus points for cover letters that demonstrate these skills) 

 

Four reasons to join the maslansky + partners team: 

  • To be challenged and grow: We’re looking to hire someone who is always asking the question, what’s next? We offer a variety of opportunities to help build and develop your skills and help you grow in a way that will meaningfully contribute to the trajectory of your career. 
  • To make a contribution: Our clients come back to us because our team delivers great work every time. And our teams deliver great work because of who they are and how they work together. Small teams with big opportunities. No matter your job description, we encourage you to learn and participate in the broader business. If you are good, you will not get lost...your contribution will be recognized and rewarded. 
  • To have an impact: Whether you want to help underprivileged students increase their chances of success, increase access to housing, support gender equality, reframe the debate about climate change, or pursue another passion, we actively look for opportunities to complement our corporate work with clients and pro bono opportunities with purpose. 
  • To have a good time: We do serious work but never take ourselves too seriously. The best work gets done when great people like working together so that is the kind of culture we’ve created. Lots of work and lots of fun to help you stay energized and engaged.
