You seem like the ambitious type.  A real go-getter.  And curious too.   Someone who loves being in the mix, connecting great clients with amazing opportunities.  That means you just might be a solid fit for a sweet gig with Cox Media.  We’re a company on the move, and we’re on a quest for an AE (that’s Account Executive, but you knew that) to deliver our robust portfolio of solutions to advertisers each and every day. 

If you’re the kind of person who loves astonishing clients with solutions – perhaps advertising solutions– then you’ve found your nirvana, your land of Oz, your Chocolate Factory.  Okay, we haven’t started making chocolate yet, but you get the idea.  Cox sells the most reputable brands in the industry.  The cool ones you already love, like ESPN, Bravo, AMC, and FX.  And our ever-expanding digital product offerings combine the best elements of social media, like Streaming TV (Roku, Sling, Amazon TV), YouTube, Google Ads and Digital Audio (Spotify) helping our clients make true connections from coast-to-coast.  So, keep reading to see how you can join a team that is big on community, growing, learning, and balance.

What You’ll Do

Remember that ambition we mentioned? You’ll thrive here because of it.  This is a job where you’ll collaborate in a fast-paced sales environment.  You’ll connect with clients (new and existing ones) to learn about what they want to accomplish and how you can help them get there.  You’ll create marketing campaigns that will help make that happen. 

Prospecting?  Cold calls?  Yep.  That’s you.  You’ll sell a mix of customized solutions and digital advertising, designed to delight clients beyond belief.   We’ll also count on you to create and pitch presentations and proposals, then close the deal.  (Yep. That’s you, too.)

You’ll check out trade shows, industry events, and rep Cox Media in the local business community.  Looking to keep growing?  Good – we’ll give you training that sharpens your sales skills and keeps you excited about our latest product offerings.  And, we’ll ask you to be a part of the budgeting and forecasting process around individual revenue achievement.
