The Opportunity: We're looking for the person most bent on monetizing the heck out of Greatist, someone who can't wait to create an innovative sales program from (mostly) scratch plus build lasting friendships with aligned clients, brands, & agencies. We're looking for someone who is enthusiastic and genuine, but willing to run through walls to get things done. Someone who is self-motivated, creative, and ready to experiment and exhaust opportunities for generating meaningful revenue. We're not looking for just a "sales" person, but someone who loves Greatist, sees the opportunity we've got, and can't wait to dig their teeth into building something special from it — someone who believes they can and will become the absolute best at this. Comfort working with an editorial team, 2+ years of sales experience with lifestyle/health/wellness/fitness brands, and ability to build assets a plus.

Launched in 2011, it's now the fastest-growing site in the health space with more than 1.5 million unique visitors every month.
