Voted “Best Parenting Web Resource” by Seattle Magazine, Red Tricycle provides authoritative, localized content and information to busy parents for kid-friendly things to do, see or buy in a user’s city. To date, Red Tricycle (email newsletter and website) is distributed in Seattle, Los Angeles, Portland, and the San Francisco/Bay Area behind an ad supported revenue model. The company is profitable, has major national advertisers including Starbucks, baby Gap and Amazon, more than 100 local advertisers and a high renewal rate.
An early stage start-up, the Bay Area-based company was founded in 2005 and is now ready to embark on its next growth stage and begin scaling its sales force, geographic distribution and content management ability. We’re in need of a few sales superstars to join the Red Tricycle team.
The ideal candidate is a mover & shaker with spectacular communication, presentation, and negotiation skills, a salesperson extraordinaire that loves to spend their time prospecting, networking & closing. The Bay Area positions will be responsible for both small retail accounts as well as national accounts and developing ad agency relationships.
Our advertising sales reps are responsible for all phases of the advertising sales process: qualifying, cold calling, prospect development, writing proposals, and closing new business. Our independent contractors enjoy the freedom of setting their own hours (and working from home!).

newspaper or online ad sales
. Hold a Bachelor’s degree (BA, BS, BBA) or higher
