FreshBooks has an ambitious vision. We launched in 2003 but we’re just getting started and there’s a lot left to do. We’re a high performing team working towards a common goal: building ridiculously easy-to-use invoicing and  accounting software for small business owners. Known for extraordinary product and customer service experiences and based in Toronto, Canada, FreshBooks serves paying customers in over 120 countries.

The Opportunity: Senior PR Manager 

We’re looking for an entrepreneurial and ambitious Senior PR Manager to help spread the word about FreshBooks. FreshBooks is on a mission to reshape the world to suit the needs of self-employed professionals and their teams. More than 20 million people around the world have used FreshBooks since 2003 -- but there are so many more to reach. We’re looking for an experienced PR Manager to work alongside our Associate Director to build and execute on an exciting, “modern” PR strategy. You’ll help execute our unique data PR strategy, “own” your own PR programs (from strategy to execution to measurement/reporting), and work cross-functionally to use PR to help various business departments use PR to achieve their business goals (business development, product, human resources).

You will bring:

  • Top notch communication skills - both written and verbal. You know how to write a “cold” pitch that sells. 
  • Demonstrated experience securing positive coverage with top-tier media across North America, and a deep understanding of how reporters/journalists and newsrooms work.
  • Experience with product/technology PR.
  • Demonstrated experience building effective social media strategies. 
  • An ability to see the big picture, connect dots, and turn gold nuggets into gold rushes.
  • An entrepreneurial mindset - you want to “own” something, and you’re excited by the idea of trying new or unconventional approaches to PR. 
  • High self-awareness - you’re able to identify blockers and ask for help or resources to ensure your projects reach their full potential.
  • Resiliency - you love a good challenge, and if things don’t go to plan, you roll up your sleeves and figure out a Plan B.
  • Experience collaborating with external team mates (freelancers and agencies). 
  • Strong project management skills  - you can juggle multiple balls at once, and you never miss a deadline. 
  • Bonus: Experience running  digital events and/or community building.

Requirements and Qualifications

  • 4-5 years of relevant experience, agency and/or in-house
  • Post-secondary education
  • Excellent written communication and presentation skills
  • Strong project management skills
  • A sense of humour

For this role, we’d love to see your creativity right out of the gate. Don’t be shy about standing out. “Pitch” us on why you’re the perfect candidate for this role. We welcome unique applications that get our attention.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
