NY Account Executive

Flytedesk is the technology that powers campus advertising.
Advertisers spend $75b per year targeting millennials 18-24, but when they’re in college, they’re almost impossible to reach. 63% block ads online, 57% don’t have cable, and students switch platforms faster than ad products can be developed. Important audience, pain in the ass to reach.
Flytedesk is the largest network of campus advertising and our ad buying platform is the fastest, easiest, most efficient way to access the 20m millennials that live, eat, sleep, work, and play on campus. We currently have $1b of unique inventory that generates 5b monthly impressions.
We’re a Techstars company backed by the founders of CP+B, SpotX, and AOL. Big brands rely on flytedesk to access their millennial audience, like Nintendo, Trojan, Jimmy John’s, Adult Swim, Dr Pepper, the Peace Corps, Publix, L.L.Bean, Chacos, Grubhub, Venmo etc.
Job Description
Our clients are fortune 500 CMOs and teams from the biggest media agencies in the world. They rely on us as their college media experts and to shepherd them through a world they know they need to be in, but one that can be daunting to understand.
We punch above our weight in all things. We’ve grown from 3 people to 21 in a few years and we’re looking for someone who won’t flinch in the face of enormous opportunity – someone who always wins and traffics in relationships built on transcendent authenticity.
Building a company isn’t for everyone, we embrace the difficulty because we have the opportunity to change how things our done.
Your primary responsibility is to integrate Flytedesk into big media agencies and advertising brands. You can translate deep experience working with brands and agencies into helping build the next great company that solves the biggest pain points in the industry. 

  • Must have experience buying or selling some or all media types (Print, Digital, Social and OOH a plus) 
  • 2 to 5 years experience in large agencies or high-performance sales organizations
  • Self-starter, willing to figure out anything
  • Superior communication skills; both written and interpersonal
  • Team player, we’re only as good as our people and our people are family
  • Previous experience in AdTech a plus

We started flytedesk because we have a thorough distaste for “how things have always been done”, and believe in the power of student journalism and that young people change the world. The people who are most successful at flytedesk exemplify three core values:

  • Tenacious - there’s no better feeling than building what others thought impossible. We are a collection of people who are willing to do whatever it takes to make our vision a reality, leaving only happy clients in our wake. This is not a job for people who are not 100% committed. Being on the ground floor and in the trenches of a high-growth startup takes dedication to the cause. 

  • Creative - we don’t do things like everyone else. We choose to be remarkable, surprising, and go above and beyond. We take chances and make big bets. We anticipate needs, markets, and better experiences; and then we build them. We don’t take ourselves too seriously and can be considered quirky - but we like our family just the way it is.

  • Honest - there is no time for anything else. We treat each other with candor and kindness. Everyone in the company knows our mission, goals, progress, and challenges at all times. Everyone is accountable and we all like it that way.
