Panasonic – Marketing Manager, Brand and PR

What you will get to do:

At YO Labs, we’re finding new ways for technology and design to lighten our loads, reclaim our time, and improve our well-being.  We want it all. A career and home. Family and friends. Health and wellness. But actually, having it all can leave us feeling overloaded. And research shows it. 43% of people struggle with decision-making. 66% say overload affects their work, and 62%, their interpersonal relationships.

Technology was supposed to help by making us more efficient. But the faster we get things done, the more we take on, and our well-being falls to the bottom of the list. YO Labs is on a mission to make balance a priority – and do it joyfully.

It’s a meaningful product challenge: helping society reclaim time and make space for joy through technology and design. That’s what the team at YO Labs is solving for every day, and we have a lot fun doing it. With leadership from big tech like Google, Apple, Microsoft, and hypergrowth startups like Nest, Waymo, TaskRabbit, and Casper, we’re motivated to make the world a happier place. Join us!

As a Marketing Manager, Brand and PR at YO Labs, you will be tasked with all brand marketing initiatives including owned social media, influencer marketing, cause marketing, PR agency communications, local media and experiential marketing.
