Kucherena told the RIA Novosti news agency Thursday that Snowden starts his new job on Friday. Kucherena declined to name the company that has hired Snowden but says it's a major Russian website.
Snowden was granted asylum in Russia in August after being stuck at a Moscow airport for more than a month after flying there from Hong Kong. His whereabouts in Russia remain secret.
The 30-year-old faces espionage charges in the U.S for uncovering a mass surveillance scheme at the National Security Agency.
Kucherena was unavailable for comment when contacted by the AP.
