We are growing and looking for a Senior PR Manager (DACH) to lead media relations for GetYourGuide in the DACH region. You’ll be responsible for crafting compelling stories about travel experiences that catch the attention of top-tier media.

You will be entrusted with the responsibility of setting ambitious performance goals for your market and finding creative ways to meet them while remaining on budget. You will collaborate with internal creative teams and external PR agencies, so your ability to manage the expectations of stakeholders both within and outside the organization will be essential. You’ll be comfortable meeting, pitching and briefing the media as a public representative of the company.

You will be on a constant search for sources of storytelling inspiration, both within ad outside GetYourGuide, and you’ll remain constantly up to speed with the latest channels and formats to effectively distribute our content to our target audiences.

  • Cross-functional thinking: You know how to work on a diverse and multifunctional team, communicating your goals and motivations, understanding those of others and finding alignments that benefit everyone.

  • Passionate storyteller that can hold the attention of journalists on the phone, in written communications and in person.
