We're looking for a Digital Sales Director to grow revenue on the biggest ticket search engine on the web.
Where we are now: We sometimes refer to ourselves as the "Kayak of sports and concert tickets." A few months ago, while reading that Kayak makes more than half their money from advertising, we thought "Huh, we're idiots for not selling ads." Since then, we've signed deals with huge brands like State Farm, American Express, and TicketsNow (a Ticketmaster company). But frankly, when it comes to ad sales, we don't really know what we're doing. Hence...
Where you fit in: You will be building everything from scratch. You'll be defining our sales strategy, building relationships, refining decks, cold calling, warm calling, pitching executives, and working with the rest of the SeatGeek team on sponsorship integrations. You will define the vision for sales at SeatGeek; we want someone who can dive in and feels comfortable doing everything on Day One.
SeatGeek's advertising platform has been heralded by publications like TechCrunch and The Next Web. The technology is there and we've already had some success. Now we need someone to transform $40-50k of monthly ad revenue to $100-200k.
