Do you like building relationships and exploring creative options? At Smashing, we are looking for a team member who’ll take good care of advertising and sponsorships across the range of everything we do at Smashing — from the magazine to our conferences. Interested? We’d love you to join us.

At Smashing, we are looking for a friendly, reliable and passionate person to drive the sales and management of sponsorship and advertising. We work with small and big companies to help them get exposure and have their voice heard across a number of different media — from this very magazine to our online conferences, meet-ups and workshops. This includes:

We sincerely hope to find someone who knows and understands the web community we publish for. A person who is able to bring onboard advertisers and sponsors that will be helpful to our audience, and who will benefit from the exposure and visibility at Smashing. We are looking for a person with experience in nurturing long-term relationships with advertisers, while not being afraid to push for new sales.

We are a small family of 12, and we’ve all been working remotely for years now. By joining our team, you will have the opportunity to shape the role and work with the Magazine as well as the Events team to create sponsorship opportunities that truly benefit both sides of the arrangement. We also would be open to outsourcing this work to another company or working with someone on a freelance basis who provides these services to other companies.

A Bit About Smashing

At Smashing, we focus on bringing quality content for web designers and developers, and support our community. The community around Smashing is indeed very important to us. They tell us when they like what we are doing, and also when they do not!

We are always looking for new ways to reach out to our community. Over the past year, we’ve taken conferences online and started running online workshops in response to the pandemic. Things will likely change over the coming year too, and we are keen to bring our existing sponsors along with us and continue to think creatively about how we can offer good value to them in a changing world.

Yet again, we are a very small team of dedicated people — fully distributed even before the pandemic. The majority of the team is in Europe, but we also have team members in the USA and Hong Kong. Therefore, location tends to be less important than an ability to work in a way that respects the time lag when dealing with multiple time zones.
