Who says Sacramento’s job market is lousy? Well, it is, as we’ve reported. But within The Sacramento Press, we’re experiencing just the opposite: We’ve got good jobs available in nearly every department.
Jobs are open or opening in our Sales, Tech and Community Outreach departments. And yes, we’ve even got an opening in Editorial!
We’re advertising the positions on craigslist but wanted to make sure that you, our faithful readers, knew about them right away. Since we are a community resource, we want our community involved in making The Sacramento Press the best local coverage available. If your skills, or your friends’ skills, match up with our needs, we’d love to talk to you about joining our team.
Our Sales department is looking for a Digital Sales Media Representative, who will be selling all the products The Sacramento Press offers, including advertising on our site, social media management services and advertising on our ad networks SLOAN (Sacramento Local Online Ad Network) and BAPP (Bay Area Publishers Partnership). There will be opportunities to develop sales presentations, create marketing campaigns and otherwise explore the growing world of online advertising.

Our tech team built The Sacramento Press from scratch, and continues to add new features and refine our existing platform, just recently taking us out of “beta” mode. The job is for a back-end web developer to help us continue to build the site and the other tools and products our four-person team makes.

Our Community Outreach department is looking for someone with good organizational skills to work with our large pool of community contributors, assisting them in setting up and writing stories on all kinds of subjects. The position will involve everything from managing our email alerts and contributor database to organizing workshops and recruiting new writers.
The position is temporary but offers very good opportunities to become a permanent member of our growing staff.

Finally, as Editor in Chief, I’m sad to announce that my first hire, City Hall reporter Kathleen Haley, will be leaving us after two years of exemplary reporting that was instrumental in putting our little site on the radar of local government. Some were dubious about this little upstart, but Kathleen’s relentless reporting and detailed stories raised our game and made Sacramento Press a daily must-read for followers of local government.
So whoever takes on the job will have some big shoes to fill. However, with all the work Kathleen did to establish herself in the political community, you will have the advantage of assuming a well-established role, with good contacts at all levels of government.

Take a look at any and all of the positions on craigslist, and contact the person listed in the ad. Working at the The Sacramento Press offers not just a job, but a unique opportunity to grow with a young, aggressive, forward-thinking company, with tremendous chances of advancement.
All of us here at The Sacramento Press look forward to seeing some bright new faces around the office. Yours, perhaps?
