About our Company:

DNAinfo is a hyper-local news service that covers stories vital to Manhattan's communities.

Our news site allows advertising partners to reach their local community and engage our readers with display advertising, newsletter sponsorship, video sponsorship, neighborhood promotions and more.

We are currently seeking sales executives eager to join DNAinfo and our growing sales team. We need individuals who will bring enthusiasm and dedication to the position and work with the motivation and drive to reach monthly goals set forth by the company. The primary focus will be to increase DNAinfo's local business client base and cultivate relationships and client satisfaction. Sales executives will also be responsible for account management.

  • Bachelors degree
  • Excellent communications and interpersonal skills
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Excel, Word, Outlook and Internet Explorer
