Job Openings Account Executive / Senior Account Executive

San Jose, CA | Portland, OR | Boston, MA

All PR agencies can look similar on the surface.

We encourage you to take a dive into our scene. We don’t adhere to the conventional PR agency playbook. A couple quick examples:

  • Client work serves as a North Star. We have never measured job performance by billability or reaching hourly quotas (how does that help the client?). Some say we’re maniacal about client service. We’re OK with that description.
  • We recognize that our client contacts have a big say in the overall experience of our staff. We’re not afraid to walk away from opportunities that aren’t underpinned by mutual respect. We even created a SlideShare some time ago that guides clients on how to get the most out of us. While the graphics are a bit dated, the content is still relevant.

We are The Hoffman Agency, a global communications consultancy focused on the tech sector. Because the classic story arc typically doesn’t work in business communications — how often have you heard a client excitedly share a failure for use in communications — we invented our own storytelling methodology.

We are looking to hire an Account Executive and a Senior Account Executive with a passion for language and learning. We also the value intangibles like a sense of humor (bad puns thrive in our environment).

One final point —

We believed in workplace flexibility way before the pandemic forced everyone to work from home. As a result, we’ve built the infrastructure and culture to support employees working from any location.
