Huss Group is a rapidly growing boutique social + traditional PR and public affairs agency.  Headquartered in Pittsburgh’s tech capital, Bakery Square, our powerful reach extends coast to coast.

Huss Group employees are our brand ambassadors and exhibit the same high energy, do-whatever-it-takes approach of CEO Joanna Huss.  We are passionate about getting our clients noticed, embracing the power of story-telling to solve problems and build value for stakeholders.  To do this, we combine our deep relationships with local and national reporters and community stakeholders with swift creative digital strategy that includes the strategic use of social media.

Who you will work with:

Employees of Huss Group work with some of our nation’s most dynamic institutions, entrepreneurs and corporations: from those fighting the spread of the Zika Virus, to Napa Valley wine producers, urban and regional public school systems and even the founder of MADD – our jobs are never the same from day-to day. Our clients are inspired by what they do every day, and our employees exhibit that same energy and passion for the work we do on their behalf.

What we need:

Our ideal employee lives a well-balanced, meaningful life and is always examining and pursuing greatness at work and beyond.  We enable individuals to be their best selves by offering a flexible schedule and an attractive workplace setting.  Our office in Bakery Square is one floor below Google’s regional headquarters.  While we believe that rigid work environments crush creative and entrepreneurial spirits, our employees need to have the ability to apply sensible structure whether inside or outside of the office in order to exceed our clients’ expectations.  And since our clients operate in a 24/7 world, we do too. Our ability to respond swiftly to their needs at a moment’s notice sets us apart, as does our creative use of social media both before, during and after traditional work hours.

Our people are the recipe for our success.
