Public Relations Specialist Job description

Job title

Public Relations Specialist


“We innovate kitchens with robotics and contribute to resolving the worker shortage problem in the food industry”

The food industry in Japan is facing a serious shortage of workers. In fact, many restaurants close down because they can’t find enough people to work for them. Some try to shorten business hours to remedy this, but we all need a more fundamental solution to the problem.

Our robots are saviors to the industry. In Connected Robotics, we develop robotic systems to help people cook and wash dishes in restaurants and homes.

We are looking for PR specialists who can proactively take actions. “Combination of AI, Kitchen and Robot” is the keyword in our PR activities. Because of what we do, we are lucky to get a lot of media attention. To make the best out of this situation, we want to show the world more enthusiasm about what we do and create.

Perhaps we can do more of these:

  • Produce videos that create hype around our latest robot
  • Talk to media with videos of robots to see if they can make articles out of them

Your role may sound like it’s a little marketing oriented, but we are all after the same goal: to make something great and to let everyone know about it. Come talk to us if you think you can help us communicate better with the world.


  1. Build video content strategies
  2. Build exhibition strategies
  3. Build public relations strategies
  4. Act as a media outlet and take proactive actions
  5. Create press releases for product launches
  6. Carry out press conferences

It’s a tough but exciting job. Plan your tactics and put them into action involving people around you. You’d be a best match for us if you can tell a story in your PR strategy.
Experience in PR field is preferred, but you are also welcome if you are an experienced sales specialist and motivated to move things forward. If you are a PR person who resonates with our vision — “to innovate the kitchen with robotics” — we are looking forward to your application.
