Communications Director 🔥
Over 100,000 businesses and millions of people use 1Password to protect their most important information, and we believe those people – and the companies they work for – shouldn’t have to choose between security and productivity. We see security as a human challenge, rather than a technological one. It’s hard work, but our mission has always been to ease the tension between security and convenience and help people navigate the digital world without fear or friction. Human-centric security is part of our DNA, but human-centricity is also the backbone of our culture. We encourage big ideas and new ways of working that help us to make the online world a safer place for everyone.
We’re looking for an experienced, fearless, and creative Director of Communications to lead our media/public relations and internal communications teams at 1Password.

You have a proven track of consistently growing a company’s profile and a passion for winning at an increasingly competitive media relations game.

- Quick, skillful, and detail-oriented management expertise.
- Comfort working with multiple high-stakes programs simultaneously.
- Ability to adapt quickly in a fast-paced environment.
- Tenacity for execution and delivery.
What you can expect:
- Develop and execute strategic global B2C and B2B communications programs, including PR/media relations, analyst relations, thought leadership, internal communications, social media, and crisis communications.
