Communications Specialist, InfoTech

Info Tech is seeking a Communications Specialist to join our Marketing & Communications team.
Who We Are
Info Tech consists of two core businesses: Info Tech Systems and Info Tech Consulting.  The Communications Specialist position supports both businesses and will gain exposure to diverse areas within the company.
Info Tech Systems creates software that’s used by 88% of state transportation agencies to manage their road construction projects.  In fact, if you are driving on a highway in North America, there is a good chance that
Info Tech software was used to build it.
Info Tech Consulting pioneered using computerized techniques for detecting fraudulent business behavior.  Today, Info Tech Consulting remains committed to using data to uncover the truth.  Our data analysis and expert testimony services have been retained for many high-profile national and international price-fixing, collusion and bid-rigging cases resulting in the restoration of billions of dollars in damages to the public.
With a diverse workforce and collaborative, relaxed environment, Info Tech is a Gainesville-born pioneer of innovation, committed to its family of employees, customers and community.  We promote a culture of growth and support our employees to develop into thought-leaders and innovators within our industry.  In business for over 40 years, we are known for our people-first culture, work-life flexibility and outstanding employee retention rates.
What We’re Looking For
As a Communications Specialist, you’ll be responsible for writing internal communications, organizing employee events, and facilitating community relations activities.
First and foremost, you’re a person who loves to write. You may have the next great American novel kicking around upstairs, but in the meantime, you tackle newsletters and press releases. You can make a simple corporate announcement sound fun, without losing sight of the details.
You’re also the kind of person that started planning your own birthday parties when you were 5-years-old. While most people at weddings talk about the lovely new couple, you’re honed in on the decor and the catering. It’s a confirmed fact that no one has ever seen you without at least two day planners – one for work, one for fun. Some might ask, “Who plans fun?” You do. You plan fun. And you are organized while doing it.  After all, planning fun is an important part of this role. That means big events – like hackathons and holiday parties – and small events that remind our employees we care about them.
Speaking of caring, we’re looking for someone with a heart of gold underneath their organized exterior. You’ll be directly involved in Info Tech’s charitable initiatives.  You will serve as chair of Info Tech’s Community Involvement Committee and organize company-wide service events.
So, do you jump up and down with excitement at any chance to plan an event? Do you have the Grinch’s giving spirit (after his heart grew to an irregular and possibly unsafe size)? While other people dream of being President, do you dream of writing acceptance speeches and press releases? If so, apply today!
Typical Duties Include:
  • Serving as a storyteller, crafting inspiring narratives and communications for internal and external messaging.
  • Overseeing internal communications editorial calendar and distribution.
  • Writing, editing, and maintaining an internal newsletter and general corporate thought leadership articles.
  • Assisting with social media efforts by providing editorial calendar and content support.
  • Supporting the coordination and alignment of all community relations activities and company involvement.
  • Overseeing the coordination and planning of key corporate events such as annual hackathons, quarterly meetings and company milestone celebrations.
  • Acting as a brand ambassador, identifying opportunities to increase brand awareness locally, regionally and nationally and upholding Info Tech’s branding guidelines and documentation styles.
Minimum Qualifications
Bachelor’s degree in a related field or equivalent combination of education/experience.
Preferred Qualifications
  • Bachelor’s degree in public relations, journalism or related field with 2+ years progressive experience and demonstrated business acumen.
  • Prior experience with internal communications, copy writing and social media.
  • Demonstrated success in project, program and event management.
  • Excellent oral/written communication, interpersonal and facilitation skills.
Technical Skills
  • Social media: Hootsuite, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter
  • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • Spreadsheets: Microsoft Excel and Google sheets
Location

This position is located at Info Tech’s headquarters in Gainesville, Florida.  Come to work every day in our brand new, state of the art facility in Celebration Pointe where you can enjoy daily visits from award-winning food trucks and stunning nature views over Split Rock Conservation Area.

Supervision
This position reports to the Director of Marketing and Communications.
Hiring Timeline and Application Instructions
This position will remain posted until filled. Cover letters are required.

Info Tech is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer including Vets and Disabled.  Equal access to employment is available to all persons.
