Account Executive - SHIFT Communications

Boston, MA


B2B PR Pro? We’ve Got an Account Executive job for you!
We’re SHIFT Communications. We’re what happens when you combine social media goodness with traditional PR. We’re what you get when 100 brainy, fun people actually like working (and playing) together while crushing it on kick a$$ tech/B2B clients. 
We’re the place where killer ideas are born and where office politics goes to die. Not the other way around, like some other places you may have worked.
We give you a voice and a spotlight in exchange for your passion. You’re good at what you do, and we’re good about helping you shine. Whether you’re working on cool consumer startup clients or major brands, we’re looking for a person who isn’t content with the status quo. We’re looking for a person to punch above his/her weight class. We’re looking to challenge you with new opportunity, and for you to challenge us by thinking differently, creatively, nimbly.
Importantly, we’re looking for folks who know how to play nicely. Are you quick to provide solutions in the face of problems? Do you value the success of your fellow colleagues as much as your own? 
Cool. You just might be a SHIFTer.
