So you’ve been reading and enjoying Very Local New Orleans. Yes, we’re the new, cool kids on the media block here in the city. We’re a small team, we have fun and we’re always in the know about what’s happening in the city.

Well, guess what? We’re hiring! We’re looking for a sales strategist with a lot of spunk to spread the word about Very Local to the rest of the city and help us beef up our operation even more.

The deets

Very Local New Orleans is a new digital news outlet focused on lifestyle and culture for young New Orleanians— providing digital-first news and information with an emphasis on food, drink, events, and local culture. Very Local provides the best recommendations on cultural destinations and activities, targeting young, urban audiences. This role would be responsible for building a digital advertising business from scratch, focusing on native advertising and sponsorships.

Why us?

We’re new to the scene and enthusiastically aggressive on creating exceptional experiences and progressing the media landscape for everyone in New Orleans.

We have an award-winning staff and leader that likes to work hard and play hard — and sometimes those are the same thing. A kickboxing class with music provided by DJ Jubilee? Yeah, we did that.

A launch party with local musicians and Queen Diva Big Freedia — we made that happen.
