Do You Live, Eat, Drink and Love your City?
LivingSocial is the local marketplace to buy and share the best things to do in your city. We help local businesses grow by introducing them to high-quality new customers and give merchants the tools to make our members their regulars. Based in Washington, DC, we have more than 70 million members around the world.
Our Outside Sales team has played a huge part in LivingSocial's incredible growth. As the most outward-facing representative of LivingSocial's brand, our Account Executive interacts everyday with our great merchant customers, and revolutionizes the way they approach advertising. We’re not saying it’s going to be easy, but if you have a “hunter” mentality, thrive in a strategic selling environment, and have crushed your sales targets in the past, then this position could be a great fit.
At LivingSocial, we move fast, take risks, and pride ourselves on staying flexible, fun, and ferociously committed to executing each day. Do you want to be challenged by your job and work with passionate, dedicated, and creative people? Are you hungry? If so, we would love to talk to you!
