Want to work at Curbed? We're looking for an Account Executive in NY or LA, and a Sales Assistant in NY. This could be your big break.
Account Executive, Online Advertising
Curbed is looking for an Account Executive to bring in advertisers to its ever-expanding stable of websites.
Our ideal candidate will have 2-5 years of selling experience, will have cut his or her teeth in the Real Estate display advertising category (particularly new condo developments), and can bring along a Rolodex of advertisers and agencies within that category. That said, prior Real Estate selling experience is not a hard/fast requirement for the job – all talented sales professionals are encouraged to apply.
Initially, this job will primarily be focused on Real Estate advertising, but over time will increasingly include other categories, such as Fashion, Beauty, Apparel/Footwear, Food/Alcohol, and Consumer Goods (particularly Housewares). If you're a creative sales person with a passion for online media, this new position represents a tremendous opportunity to branch out across different categories and grow along with a company that is young but publishes a proven product.
The job offers a competitive base salary, benefits, and a generous commission/bonus plan. While we're envisioning this as a NYC based position, we will consider candidates based in LA.
We're also looking for a Sales Assistant to support the efforts of its advertising sales department.
Job duties include: maintaining/updating sales materials, tracking ad campaigns, coordinating delivery of ad materials, researching competitive activity, mocking up sales presentations, and data entry of sales leads. Skill with photoshop/illustrator is a BIG plus.
This is an upwardly mobile position and represents an excellent growth opportunity for an ambitious team player. We're looking for someone with a passion for media, excellent communications skills, and a high level of quantitative competence. Some experience working in a sales department is preferred, but this is essentially an entry-level position.
To apply for either position please send resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
