CANADALAND is hiring a Sales Representative

Our growing podcast company needs someone wonderful to sell ads, develop campaigns and work with major brands.

We are looking for someone who understands the incredible value of audio advertising for opt-in audiences, and can convey that value to our growing list of partner brands. Our ads are deeply engaging, intimate, and effective – you will be selling a product that simply works.

This is a chance to leverage your media sales experience, to work in the booming podcast business, and to be part of a creative team. It’s a chance to earn a base salary plus generous commissions through selling our growing inventory (our company has seen double-digit percentage year-over-year revenue growth each year since founding in 2013).   

Our new Sales Representative will be based out of our downtown Toronto office and be responsible for managing existing client relationships, generating new ones, developing unique creative campaigns, and working with our editorial team on developing the business-side of new creative projects.

You must be:

  • Familiar with the Canadian media business, ad sales practices and industry terminology.
  • Comfortable communicating with C-level executives and decision makers at leading companies and media agencies.
  • A self-starter with a strong ability to take initiative and find new opportunities.
  • A fantastic and energetic salesperson with confidence in our products.

Responsibilities include:

  • Connecting with agencies and brands who are looking to extend their reach through podcast advertising.
  • Relationship and account management of existing sponsors.
  • Owning the sales cycle – from lead generation to closure – by initiating and building long term relationships with key brands, planners, buyers, and any other relevant decision makers to generate opportunities.
  • Managing the advertising schedule and coordinating with our editorial teams.

Required Education, Skills and Qualifications

  • An undergraduate degree and 1-2 years of experience in sales (with preference given to media sales).
  • Strong work ethic with a desire to continuously improve.
  • Strong influential and negotiation skills.
  • Canadaland Media actively seeks applications from people from marginalized communities. We also encourage applicants to describe the ways in which their lived experiences make them great for this job in their cover letter. We will also consider applicants that communicate these experiences through other media than cover letters. Examples of this would be an audio clip that conveys who you are and how you would communicate with possible advertisers.

Compensation structure:

Base salary + guaranteed commission.

Job Type:

Full-time with flexible hours.

How to apply:

Submit your application to [email protected] by 9 am on Friday, March 1, 2019.

We thank all applicants for their interest, however only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
