Closing Date

Pyramid Communications is hiring! We are looking for an intern to join our team.

If interested, please send a resume and cover letter to Alex Withrow at  by December 4th.

WHO WE ARE

Pyramid Communications is a full-service strategy, communications, and creative firm. We have been working with nonprofit organizations, initiatives, foundations, government agencies, and Native tribes for 28 years.

ACROSS THE FIRM – WHAT WE DO

We are committed to working with mission-driven efforts and organizations that are changing our world for the better. Our multi-disciplinary team of strategists, content creators, digital and earned media specialists, and designers provide an array of strategic and communications services to clients working with diverse communities. We have worked collaboratively with a wide-range of clients and partners including W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Blackfeet Nation, Explore Washington Park, King County Family Homelessness Initiative, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

OUR NORTHWEST OPPORTUNITY – WHAT WE DO

We have a rare opportunity to make our region more prosperous than ever.

We can lead the largest salmon recovery effort in history, invigorate our economy, and honor tribal treaty rights. And we can do it while continuing our region’s legacies of clean energy and a strong farm economy.  

Right now in the Northwest, salmon runs are close to extinction—and at the same time, our utilities are rethinking how we produce energy to stay competitive. By solving these two issues together, we can create the prosperous future our region deserves. 

Over the last two years, we have been working with over 20 local and national organizations to change the conversation and advocate for a comprehensive solution that brings salmon back to abundance, honors our federal treaty obligations to tribes, maintains our region’s clean energy legacy, and strengthens our communities.

  • The opportunity to join a team of talented people from diverse backgrounds and paths.
  • A paid internship experience.
