  • Overview

    Are you a problem solver, explorer, and knowledge seeker – always asking, “What if?” 


    If so, then you may be the new team member we’re looking for. Because at SAS, your curiosity matters – whether you’re developing algorithms, creating customer experiences or answering critical questions. Curiosity is our code, and the opportunities here are endless. 



    In a world of data, analytics is a necessity for businesses to make decisions that result in impact. Today, the majority of the top 100 companies in the Fortune Global 500 rely on SAS to do this.


    SAS is seeking an experienced integrated communications professional to find and effectively tell stories that highlight the value of SAS’ four decades of analytics leadership.


    Is weaving together compelling stories across media, social platforms and influencers part of your DNA? Can you find the “wow” in a customer story, craft an edgy pitch on the latest business and tech trends, help imagine an infographic or video that’s exceedingly shareable, and respond to a media question on a ridiculously tight deadline?


    As a member of the SAS Integrated Communications team, you’ll earn coverage, manage editorial opportunities, cultivate media and customer relationships, measure and track results, and use social channels and influencer opportunities to share stories and guide conversations that lead to positive exposure for SAS and the value we provide our customers and the world.


    Put your skills to work on an experienced, curious and accountable team at a premier workplace with a corporate culture that consistently ranks among the world’s best.



    • Bachelor's degree in communications, English, journalism, marketing, or a related field of study.
    • Experience creating and managing public relations campaigns and programs for software and/or high-tech companies/clients.
    • A minimum of five to seven years’ experience, as part of an in-house or agency communications team with direct media contact; or as a technology writer or editor for a news outlet.
    • Experience not only writing, editing and creating news, but using graphics, video and social media to seed it, stimulate it and spread it.
    • Proven ability to build and place stories in national outlets, publications and broadcast channels.
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.



    • Demonstrated experience in translating technical lingo into a compelling story.
    • Proven ability to build collaborations across teams.
    • Social media savvy, with ability to integrate social media into PR activities.
    • Strong problem-solving and organizational skills.
    • Ability to multitask within a deadline-driven environment, and work both independently and as part of a team.

    SAS looks not only for the right skills, but also for a cultural fit. We seek colleagues who will contribute to the unique culture that makes SAS such a great place to work. We look for the total candidate: technical skills, culture fit, relationship skills, problem solvers, good communicators and, of course, innovators. Candidates must be ready to make an impact.
