Communications Lead, Wing

Marketing & Communications

Canberra, ACT

About Wing: Wing is reshaping the future of delivery. We are an on-demand drone delivery service that can deliver food, medicine or other items within minutes. We’ve also developed an unmanned traffic management platform--a kind of air traffic control for unmanned aircraft--to safely route drones through the sky. Our service is faster, safer and produces far less pollution than traditional delivery. Originally created in 2012 within X, the Moonshot Factory, Wing is now an Alphabet company.

About the Role: Are you a creative, results-oriented, self-starter? Are you excited to devise communications strategies that tell stories about a cutting-edge technology in an accessible and engaging way? If you answered “yes” to these questions, this may be the role for you!

  • Identify and coordinate press opportunities in Australia
  • Develop written materials, such as blog posts, FAQs, talking points, and more to effectively communicate about Wing
  • Partner with our marketing and public policy teams to create memorable events and campaigns that promote Wing
  • Develop strong relationships with journalists to pitch stories and communicate complex technology in simple terms
  • Train and advise spokespersons for media interviews, press conferences, and industry presentations

What you'll need:

  • BA/BS degree or equivalent practical experience.
  • 5 years of relevant work experience
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills
