About the Role – Vice President, Business Development

The right person for this position knows how to navigate the direct-to-brand and agency tightrope and has demonstrated experience in custom brand solutions with people and entities that understand the value of interest-based niche audiences. A trusted network, adaptability in a start-up environment and proactive accountability are your hallmarks. The position reports directly to the CEO.

If you….

  • Enjoy staying on top of ceaseless digital media publishing business model changes
  • Embrace the balance of complexity of integrated marketing sales with the pleasure of the hunt
  • Appreciate the power of an Emmy Award-winning video team, with a customer-centric mentality as a competitive advantage
  • Love the energy and juice of a start-up, with the backstop, connectivity and talent of a proven 20-year-old agency

…then you might be the person we’re looking to join our team.

Location is flexible.

Doers Wanted

You will have the rare opportunity to be part of building and monetizing niche media brands. If you’re looking for the balance of capitalizing on your “hunter” personality with the intellectual and emotional appeal of the custom content sell, this may be for you.

You’ll be a part of the executive team, reporting directly to the CEO and knowing that you’ll knock the sales goals out of the park, you’ll have a career path that involves building out a dream team of future business development stars.

If you’re at the point where the purpose of the work co-exists with financial upside, we’re ready to talk.
