Full Time

At Huddler, our mission is to engage enthusiasts online, empowering them to share their
knowledge and passion with the world. From Moms to Home Theater Junkies to Makeup
Addicts and Fashionistos, today the Huddler Platform powers over 25 communities serving
more than 30M consumers monthly. A recent partnership with SAY Media offers an additional
400MM unique visitors and editorial content to complement our communities.

We’re seeking ambitious sellers with a passion for online media and communities that can forge
long lasting relationships between our influential audience and the brands that they love (or
sometimes haven’t even met yet!)

What we do

At Huddler, we’ve built the most influential network of communities online. While content farms
and comparison shopping engines do their best to garner traffic through playing games with
Google, we believe that connecting knowledgeable, passionate individuals online and giving
them the best UX possible across their browser, their mobile devices, and their social networks
is the right long-term strategy. SAY Media brings a world of custom content programs, dynamic
rich media units, and the marketing support to make these successful.

We are backed by a battery of successful investors in Silicon Valley including New Enterprise
Associates and Matrix Partners.
