Description

What does it take to build an enduring technology brand? It takes purposeful, socially-conscious action, multi-stakeholder engagement and insanely good creative. That's why, at Edelman's Technology practice, we do so much more than tech communications.

Our team works hand-in-hand with corporate reputation, social purpose, brand marketing, employee experience, digital, influencer and creative experts to build meaningful campaigns for our clients. We're fortunate to work with some of the best-known brands in technology - but we also bring our tech know-how, including AI, blockchain, cloud, and more, to clients across the Edelman network, in every sector, to help them drive their innovation priorities.

If this sounds like a world for you, Edelman has an exciting opportunity for an Account Executive to join the technology practice in our San Francisco office ! This vital position will work on a diverse range of consumer and B2B technology clients.
