    VSC is a strategic communications agency seeking the strategists, storytellers, and data nerds who will have a lasting impact on the companies and startups who are pushing the frontiers of our society.

    Whether it's robots making pizzas at Zume; literally helping scientists cure cancer at Mission Bio; connecting brands with talent at Jyve; or exploring virtual reality in the classroom with Nearpod; you'll get to work with some of the most revolutionary companies on the planet.

    The world needs storytellers. Tech is cool, but if it doesn’t tell a story, what’s the point? This is why VSC will teach you the skills to not only pay the bills but give your readers chills.

    Who You'll Work With:

    VSC understands that extraordinary people don't take ordinary jobs.

    You'll work alongside people who have won more than 100 awards for breakthrough PR campaigns. Among your teammates are musicians, writers, spoken word artists, athletes, illusionists, rappers, gamers, and other creatives who work hard and celebrate each win, no matter how big or small. Together, VSC has accrued decades of experience by working in the trenches with more than 200 businesses and startups to innovate their communications strategies in new ways. That's because we champion the obsessives, the geeks, the contrarians, and the idealists, and we embrace diversity in thought and practice.

    • You are a natural communicator and present your ideas clearly, concisely, and convincingly

    • You are a critical thinker and remixer, pulling insights from across everything you read, hear, and see

    • You are a creative storyteller and can craft kickass sentences, whether it's a tweet, blog post, or byline, and you maintain a personal blog or portfolio of published content

    • You have a tool belt filled with skills like HTML design, video editing, and Photoshop

    • You are a leader -- you show up early, roll up your sleeves, and dive into whatever the day holds
