Job Opportunities

Account Executive

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. The bimonthly magazine is owned and edited by former writers for Money magazine, InStyle, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, who bring a strong civic mission to the magazine, 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.

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 2 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.

The magazine also takes Covid-19 safety issues very seriously, and moved to work-from-home status before it was even required to do so in March 2020. The Sactown team, which is 100% vaccinated, will only return to the office only when it becomes fully safe to do so, and when it does, it will adopt a hybrid office-home work schedule (Tuesdays through Thursdays at the office, and Mondays and Fridays working remotely). All new staffers *must* be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and be able to provide verification of such.

Our new office is located in midtown Sacramento, amidst many of the city’s best restaurants and shops. The office does not have an open floor plan; rather, it features almost entirely private offices and a brand-new air purification system installed in the HVAC system.

Please send your resume and cover letter to advertising director Scott Hassenflu at 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.
