Looking for a career upgrade? We’re looking for you.

ARLnow publisher Local News Now is seeking eager, goal driven and detail-oriented candidates interested in an account management role on our growing team.

This unique opportunity may be of particular interest to new college grads, stay-at-home parents looking to re-enter the workforce, and job switchers, especially those in the service and retail industries. It will provide training and hands-on account management experience to 1-2 individuals on a part-time basis, with flexible hours.

The goal is for the position to become full time by the fall — or sooner. (We are also open to hearing from those with directly relevant sales experience who are seeking an immediate full-time opportunity.)

Our company helps advertisers build and grow their business by providing them with individual support and solutions to a variety of business needs through display advertising, sponsored content, and social media on our sites and social platforms.

As an account manager, you will be responsible for helping our company grow by identifying potential advertising clients and engaging them via email. You will also assist with client relations, marketing, and operational responsibilities. This position does not involve cold calls or visits.

If you are outgoing by nature, adept at establishing interpersonal relationships, and possess strong organizational and problem-solving skills, this may the perfect way to put yourself on a path to a personally rewarding and financially lucrative career.

The ideal candidate should also have:

  • Basic technical skills and ability to quickly learn new systems, like Asana, Airtable and Pipedrive
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Sales experience and/or a customer service background
  • The drive to make clients feel comfortable and supported
  • Strong work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit; our team is self-disciplined and motivated
  • An interest in social media and community outreach
  • Familiarity with startup culture is a plus!

Local News Now’s office is based in Ballston. You’ll be expected to complete at least some of your job responsibilities at our office. Local News Now offers a close-knit team and a fun, startup-like environment to work and grow

This position will pay a competitive hourly rate plus performance-based bonuses.

To apply, please send a PDF resume or Linkedin profile link to [email protected]. In your email, include 2-3 paragraphs that concisely describe why you’re interested in this position and why you are uniquely suited to succeed in it.
