SALES POSITIONS

ARTS! CULTURE!! ACTION!!! 

Are you ready to be at the very forefront of the Minneapolis and St. Paul Arts & Culture scene? 

Along with their long-time beloved newsletter, DISPATCH recently launched a cool, new highly designed print publication to cover all the local music, art openings, film screenings, block parties, festivals—even pro wrestling!—that’s happening here in the Twin Cities. 

As our whole business expands, we’re looking for a sales professional who can jump in the mix and help us manage and expand our fast-growing advertising base that includes many of the coolest venues, events, brands, and more throughout the region. 

The sales person that’s a fit for DISPATCH has this scene in their blood and wants to help support our team as we spread the world about all the cool people, places, and things that make this such a great place to go out. We’re also looking for someone who’s not afraid of rapid growth and change—we’re already adding big names to our publication and quickly adding more, just like our locations and coverage! 

Come join us—both as a sales professional and out and about around town with perks like tickets to shows, inside info, new releases and more—as we print back Arts & Culture coverage to Minneapolis-St. Paul!
