Quick take: Axios is a growth-stage startup dedicated to providing trustworthy, award-winning news content in an audience-first format. The Axios Events Team, a creative arm of the Axios revenue organization and a part of Creative Services (Events and Smart Brevity Studio), is hiring a Project Manager to guide post-sale production and client management for Axios events and special projects.

Why it matters: Axios Events use smart sponsor integration to help our advertising partners communicate their messaging through a Smart Brevity lens across our platforms.
