Corporate Communications Lead



Marketing & Communications
San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Sunday, September 10, 2023
As a Corporate Communications Lead supporting the Head of Communications, you will partner closely with the policy, societal impacts, product, research, and go-to-market teams to develop differentiated messaging, plans and programs that resonate with our priority audiences and elevate major company announcements. You will define and drive our corporate communications strategy as we work to advance the frontier of AI safety. You will also help to develop processes and policies to make the Communications team more efficient and partner with the Head of Communications in scaling a high-performing team. The ideal candidate is exceptional at media relations, but also has a deep understanding of internet culture and its influence over the media landscape and Anthropic’s varied audiences.


  • Develop and execute comprehensive PR and communications strategies to elevate Anthropic's brand and effectively communicate our mission, products, culture, and values
  • Craft messaging and talking points for major company announcements and milestones
  • Build strong relationships with journalists and relevant influencers
  • Oversee production of company blog posts, videos, and other communications collateral
  • Provide communications counsel to the executive teams

You may be a good fit if you:

  • Have deep experience running corporate communications at a fast-growing, technical startup
  • Are excellent at media relations and issues management—but aren’t tethered to traditional playbooks
  • Have a track record of writing, editing, and communicating technical copy
  • Have a demonstrable track record of picking up a working knowledge of advanced technologies, and are excited to do so with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
  • Are a superb written and verbal communicator
  • Enjoy working cross-functionally with highly technical partners, and thrive in a research and science based environment
  • Are excited to translate insights about AI for broader audiences, ranging from policymakers to the general public
  • Are results-oriented, with a bias towards flexibility and impact
  • Care about ensuring that transformative AI systems are developed safely

Sample projects:

  • Craft a compelling corporate communication strategy for Anthropic, in partnership with our Head of Communications, leadership and partner team
  • Lead the communications planning and execution of major company announcements
  • Develop and manage Anthropic’s public content, which will provide overviews of our research, code, organizational, and policy outputs
  • Identify strategic initiatives to push on in partnership with our policy and societal impact teams

Annual Salary (USD)

  • The expected salary range for this position is $240,000-$330,000 USD
We encourage you to apply even if you do not believe you meet every single qualification. Not all strong candidates will meet every single qualification as listed. Research shows that people who identify as being from underrepresented groups are more prone to experiencing imposter syndrome and doubting the strength of their candidacy, so we urge you not to exclude yourself prematurely and to submit an application if you're interested in this work. We think AI systems like the ones we're building have enormous social and ethical implications. We think this makes representation even more important, and we strive to include a range of diverse perspectives on our team.

How we're different
We believe that the highest-impact AI research will be big science. At Anthropic we work as a single cohesive team on just a few large-scale research efforts. And we value impact — advancing our long-term goals of steerable, trustworthy AI — rather than work on smaller and more specific puzzles. We view AI research as an empirical science, which has as much in common with physics and biology as with traditional efforts in computer science. We're an extremely collaborative group, and we host frequent research discussions to ensure that we are pursuing the highest-impact work at any given time. As such, we greatly value communication skills. We're trying to build a core of knowledge and intuition about the most robustly effective innovations in AI, and so thoroughly-documented null results are almost as valuable as positive discoveries. We do not have boundaries between engineering and research, and we expect all of our technical staff to contribute to both as needed.
The easiest way to understand our research directions is to read our recent research. This research continues many of the directions our team worked on prior to Anthropic, including: GPT-3, Circuit-Based Interpretability, Multimodal Neurons, Scaling Laws, AI & Compute, Concrete Problems in AI Safety, and Learning from Human Preferences.
