  • Present the vision of the TicToc brand at senior-most levels of target organizations
  • Deliver the highest level of customer service, deeply understand client needs, and connect client challenges to TicToc solutions.
  • Drive revenue across the TicToc brand by negotiating deals that provide the highest value for the organization.
  • Effectively run client portfolio, accurately, and strategize new ways to monetize the TicToc brand

You'll need to have:

  • 8-12 years of experience selling digital media with a focus in social video, OTT, and/or sales across the distributed web
  • Proven track record driving revenue and achieving targets
  • Entrepreneurial experience selling new brand or product/service offering and refining approach based on market feedback
  • Experience building, crafting, and acting as a leader within one’s organization

Does this sound like you?

Apply if you think we’re a good match. We'll get in touch with you to let you know the next steps.
