Sactown Magazine, the largest and most respected magazine in the Sacramento region, is looking for a new Account Executive to join our team.
If you’re good at sales, don’t sell widgets. Sell a product you can believe in. Sactown was started by two national magazine journalists (one born and raised in Sacramento) who are committed to spotlighting Sacramento’s best and brightest people, and advancing bold ideas to push the city forward. It is a magazine with a strong civic mission at its core, combined with national-caliber journalism, photography and design. We’ve even been written up in The New York Times! If you’re passionate about Sacramento, you’ll be in very good company here.
The magazine is owned and edited by former writers for Money Magazine, InStyle, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Our headquarters overlooks downtown Sacramento and is located in the heart of the city, only two blocks from the Golden 1 Center and halfway between City Hall and the State Capitol, although our team has been working remotely through the pandemic.
This is a great opportunity to use your sales abilities to develop new business (both print and online) and to work directly with our marketing partners to help them grow their businesses by finding the right advertising plans for them. We’re looking for at least 1 to 3 years of in-person, consultative sales experience. The right candidate will be goal-driven, a problem solver, creative and have strong verbal and written communication skills. Loving Sacramento is a bonus.
Compensation package includes base salary + healthy commission incentives. Please send your resume and cover letter to Advertising Director Scott Hassenflu at firstname.lastname@example.org. A cover letter *must* accompany your resume for your application to be considered. **No phone calls will be accepted** You can find Sactown at Raley’s, Bel Air, Safeway, Nugget, Barnes & Noble, Corti Brothers and other quality retailers throughout the Sacramento region.
