Sales and Business Development Associate At Task & Purpose


New York, New York

Salary Range

$50K - 85K USD per year

Job Description

Task & Purpose is the leading digital media site for millennial veterans and service-members and their supporters. Through online media, events, and career advice and guidance, we enable brands to create rich, meaningful connections with one of the most relevant, influential, and loyal communities in America.

Our mission is to provide unfiltered reporting on issues affecting current members of the military and veterans navigating transition and the Department of Veterans Affairs. We were on the ground in December 2016 during the Standing Rock protests with 4,000 other veterans; we've challenged the treatment of women in service; we've sent journalists to Mexico to cover the deported U.S. veterans who are being recruited by drug cartels, we were one of the few publications allowed to attend the NRA's annual conference this year, and we've gotten the exclusive on VA and DoD policies before they've been announced.

We're also on the hunt for an industry veteran, with relevant client and agency relationships, to build our consumer facing advertising, branded content, and integrated media business.

A successful candidate knows how to sell, is a student of today's rapidly evolving media landscape, and thrives in a dynamic, team-oriented environment. We want someone who is both a player and a coach, who can develop strategy, but then do the hard work to execute, close deals, and help build our business.
