Genius is looking for an Senior Account Director to join Genius' sales efforts on the West Coast.
The ideal candidate is a true hustler – ambitious, organized, and great at identifying and closing business across many categories – YOU MUST HAVE experience managing a digital sales process.
Genius is the perfect place for sellers that are interested in building something from the ground up. At our core, we’re a tech company, which means that we can leverage the strength of our engineering team (former Facebook, Google, Twitter, Tumblr, FourSquare engineers) to build custom advertising solutions that connect brands to our audience in an authentic way. Our team is small, we pay better than most, and there’s still a lot of equity on the table. If you’re sick of selling the same old editorial and video campaigns, drop us a line!
Genius began as a website for decoding rap lyrics and has since evolved into the internet’s most comprehensive database of musical knowledge, with more than 60 million monthly unique visitors and tens of thousands of contributing users.
