About Releasd 

Releasd is an Software as a Service (SaaS) platform we created for PR teams within large companies. Releasd enables clients to share their work with important people across their organisation in a visual and digestible way, replacing outdated Word and PDF documents that nobody reads. In doing so, they’re finally able to demonstrate the value that their great work brings to the business. 

Our clients include world-class organisations like Samsung, Jaguar Land Rover, British Airways, Disney, Sony, Deloitte, Marks & Spencer and many more. 

The Culture 

Our culture is collaborative and supportive. We value emotional intelligence, integrity and initiative. 

Everyone who joins Releasd is able to make a meaningful impact on the business. Experimentation is encouraged and decisions are made through a combination of data and informed intuition. 

We believe that personal development is crucial. You’ll learn about all aspects of a SaaS business, not just your own practice, and our long term plans and progress are shared with everyone. 

Based in the heart of Camden’s famous Stables Market, we’re a friendly but driven bunch. If you’re looking to join a startup with solid foundations and global ambitions, on one hell of an exciting journey, we’d love to get to know you!
