Advertising Account Executive - Cox Media Inc

You seem like the ambitious type. A real go-getter. And curious too. Someone who loves being in the mix, connecting great clients with amazing opportunities. That means you just might be a solid fit for a sweet gig with Cox Media. Were a company on the move, and were on a quest for an AE (thats Account Executive, but you knew that) to deliver our robust portfolio of solutions to advertisers each and every day.

If youre the kind of person who loves astonishing clients with solutions - perhaps advertising solutions- then youve found your nirvana, your land of Oz, your Chocolate Factory. Okay, we havent started making chocolate yet, but you get the idea. Cox sells the most reputable brands in the industry. The cool ones you already love, like ESPN, Bravo, AMC, and FX. And our ever-expanding digital product offerings combine the best elements of social media, like Streaming TV (Roku, Sling, Amazon TV), YouTube, Google Ads and Digital Audio (Spotify) helping our clients make true connections from coast-to-coast. So, keep reading to see how you can join a team that is big on community, growing, learning, and balance.

What Youll Do

Remember that ambition we mentioned? Youll thrive here because of it. This is a job where youll collaborate in a fast-paced sales environment. Youll connect with clients (new and existing ones) to learn about what they want to accomplish and how you can help them get there. Youll create marketing campaigns that will help make that happen.

Prospecting? Cold calls? Yep. Thats you. Youll sell a mix of customized solutions and digital advertising, designed to delight clients beyond belief. Well also count on you to create and pitch presentations and proposals, then close the deal. (Yep. Thats you, too.)

Youll check out trade shows, industry events, and rep Cox Media in the local business community. Looking to keep growing? Good - well give you training that sharpens your sales skills and keeps you excited about our latest product offerings. And, well ask you to be a part of the budgeting and forecasting process around individual revenue achievement.

Whats In It For You?

Hey, curiosity is a trait we really value, so you wanting to know what you get out of this relationship is precisely the question we hoped youd ask.

First things first. For this role, you can count on competitive pay, uncapped earning potential, and serious props thrown your way for your outstanding performance. Well celebrate your success with awards like our Winners Circle trip to exotic destinations. You can expect a 401K with a generous company match, comprehensive healthcare, life and disability benefits, plus other perks, including adoption assistance, pet insurance, free internet and other discounted services from Cox (in certain markets).
Need a little support? Sure, we all do. Heres some very good news. Youll be set up for success with proper coaching, tools, technology, and the most amazing support, from production to order coordination- so you can focus on what you do best: selling! We work with you to ensure you know that weve got your back every step of the way.

If the role of Account Executive feels like a great fit, were happy to support your long career on that exciting road. However, if you find you have different aspirations, well, we want you to grow with us...so if a different area of the Cox ecosystem inspires your ambition, let us help you map your way there. You may have guessed by now, but we dont do corporate ladders here. We do jungle gyms. So climb, swing, and explore. Earn an advanced degree, learn a new skill, join a mentoring program. Its all there for you...so let us know how we can help you grow.

Inclusion is one of our top priorities: we want you to bring your authentic self to your work. We believe in mutual respect and honoring who people are...if you feel the same way, youve found the right place. Know that we want you to feel at home...and to help make others feel at home as well.
