Well, you’ve come to the right place at the right time. CHEN PR’s hiring an entry-level associate account executive (AAE) to join our team.

A little about us before I dive into the details, and you eyeball the job description below…

With more than 20 years under its belt, CHEN PR is one of the tech industry’s longest-standing and most respected strategic communications firms serving the innovation ecosystem.

Boutique-sized by design, big by way of results, and based in Boston’s Downtown Crossing, our B2B clients are headquartered across the country. They range from established multinational organizations to some of the hottest emerging growth companies and venture capital-backed startups.

There’s hardly a tech sector we haven’t touched. We’re especially well-versed in security and privacy, yet equally comfortable in cloud computing, energy storage, networking, enterprise software and more.

The bottom line is that we help clients to define markets, elevate brands, establish leadership and fuel sales. Check out our blog posts to see the media coverage we generate.

We want to hear from you if you are someone that is:

  •  Drawn to technology and innovation.
  • A quick learner who isn’t afraid to dive in and ask questions along the way.
  • Proactive and a self-starter.
  • Highly organized and detail-oriented.
  • Polished in both the verbal and written form.
  • Fearless versus reckless and understands the difference between the two.
  • Open to sharing in office humor and enjoys a Friday afternoon beer or vino with the crew.


We have excellent benefits, our downtown location makes for an easy commute just steps away from public transportation, and our company has a laid-back vibe. And if you have a dog that is well-behaved, we love visitors.

Don’t just take our word for it, check out what our newest CHEN PR staffer—who just happens to be an AAE—has to say about the agency.

Interested? Send us your resume to HR@CHENPR.com. Use a subject line that’ll get our attention. And include a note to tell us why you’re a great fit for the position.

We look forward to hearing from you!
