Description
The saying goes that “timing is everything” – and that couldn’t be more true of joining Buffalo.Agency now. Our “herd” family is one of the most respected and sought-after firms representing global golf and lifestyle brands. Despite nearly two decades of industry expertise, we hustle and innovate like a start-up.

Since reorganizing as a full-service, integrated marketing agency two years ago, we have doubled in size and expanded our client portfolio to include more than 60 of the coolest brands in the world. Our foundational “storyselling” philosophy provides our PR and marketing professionals a framework to connect the amazing products and services of our clients with their discerning consumers.

With no end in sight to the growth and momentum of our firm, we welcome all applicants for various positions available at the Associate, Senior Associate and Manager levels across PR, social media and design disciplines. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, thrive within a fast-paced environment, and obsess over the “mind of the consumer,” we’d love to talk to you about joining our nearly 50-person agency – located just outside Washington, DC.

Timing is everything – and now is the perfect time to join Buffalo.Agency and be a part of something amazing. Golf + Marketing + Leisure + Travel = job of a lifetime. What’s better than that? Let’s talk.

At Buffalo.Agency, our Associates and Senior Associates keep their fingers on the pulse of industry, media and cultural trends – and they work to drive forward our clients’ businesses with hard work, media-savvy, constant creativity and dedicated enthusiasm.

Candidates interested in a publicist / PR-focused role that expands into all facets of our business – including social media, branding, campaign management, analytics, events and “bottom of the funnel” activities (SEM/SEO, database marketing, etc.) – are encouraged to apply.

Given our deep roots in PR, we value candidates who possess robust experience fearlessly pitching and placing stories with local and national print, digital and broadcast media. If you’re inspired by the art and science of media relations, as well as sharing our clients’ compelling brand stories with golf and sports journalists – or, better yet, already enjoy some of these media relationships – we’d like to speak with you. owned media, we’d like to speak with you.

  • The ability to effectively lead multidisciplinary project teams
  • An outgoing and energetic personality fitting our Buffalo.Agency culture. Quick-thinking and sharp wits to guide internal and client meetings, adapt to client needs and lead public presentations

  • Ability to thrive in a start-up environment. We are a fast-paced, high-growth company that trusts our team members to take initiative, bring big ideas to the table and execute on a vision.

An eagerness to play a quick nine when time allows is also encouraged
