Our Technology practice sits at the nexus point of innovative, integrated campaigns for technologies that impact consumers, society, and our way of life.
We’re looking for communicators that are passionate about telling deep, impactful stories at this intersection, using creativity, analytics, and media relations skills to move conversations forward in a meaningful way.
We are seeking a Senior Account Supervisor (SAS) to join our growing team in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, or Seattle to help us realize this vision and drive our industry forward. A great SAS for the Edelman Technology team is someone who understands the technology sector, knows how to reach a variety of business audiences, and has an appetite to own and drive the kinds of integrated communications marketing campaigns that win awards.

You will learn Edelman’s various Communications Marketing processes/approaches, including public engagement, message workshops, master narrative assignments, brand engagement, social media campaigns, and stakeholder mapping exercises and be able to support integrated teams in the execution of these processes for clients.
