career pic for mgr blog postIt has been a busy stretch since we’ve taken up residence a month ago in our new place on Summer Street in Boston.  Boxes are mostly emptied out. Furniture is mostly in place. Local restaurants and bars in the neighborhood are being sufficiently vetted.

And we’re crazy busy helping our clients generate visibility and endorsement for their bold visions, big thoughts and innovative products.

We’re adding a few folks to help us continue to exceed our clients’ expectations. We’d also like to accept some opportunities with companies seeking to team with us.

If you have between 5-8 years of experience and are ready to showcase your skills, let us know.  We’d enjoy comparing notes. You can highlight why you’d be great for the job. We can highlight why we’re the kind of place you’ll love to work.

The job description appears below.  If it sounds like you, email me at ccarleton@chenpr.com, call me at 781.672.3115 or reach out via whatever means you’d prefer.

Why CHEN PR?  

CHEN PR is one of the country’s longest-standing and most well-regarded independent technology public relations firms. Headquartered in the burgeoning innovation hotbed of Boston’s Downtown Crossing, our clients are a Who’s Who of emerging growth companies and global market leaders. Our field-proven services include branding and messaging, media and analyst relations, content creation, social media, and a full gamut of influencer and stakeholder communications.

We’re as committed to senior-level counsel as we are to flawless program implementation. That earns us a reputation as the go-to agency for companies in markets that include information security, privacy, networking, telecommunications, cloud, enterprise software, clean tech and more.

Why You?

CHEN PR operates on a set of principles about who we work with and for…and who works at the agency. We don’t compromise. You deserve that. So do our clients and our team.

We’re strategic consultants and master tacticians. We’re boutique-sized by design and highly agile in deployment. Like the brands we build with clients – larger-than-life in the value we create.

We’re growing. We need you to help us address the demand. You won’t get lost or pigeonholed in the middle of some account team hierarchy here. You’ll work directly with the top agency execs and you’ll have the same kind of access to clients.

We offer excellent salaries and compensation packages, flexible schedules and work-from-home when that’s required. We reward the bold. Your talents and work ethic will be highly valued. So, too, will your sense of fearlessness – because you know that’s different than recklessness. A sense of humor is a must.

We give back. We support a host of pro bono and charitable efforts. We have fun. We have a high engagement, high integrity and high energy environment. That serves the needs of our clients, our inner compass and our inner child. You’ll be among friends who understand and respect you. We want you to be a part of that.
