ROBLOX is a fast growing online virtual world and building game for kids – think “Second Life meets building blocks”. We have established a compelling market presence and a clear advertising demographic. We are looking for a motivated, hands-on individual to lead our direct and network advertising sales campaigns.

Our users are also passionate, playing over 5 hours per week, on average. Check us out on YouTube – search on “ROBLOX”.
You will be responsible for forging new advertising partnerships with national brands, maintaining existing relationships, developing pitch presentations, updating sales forecasts, and maintaining a sales pipeline. You will be expected to consistently hit and exceed revenue goals, and will be compensated through a mix of salary, commission, and stock.
If you fit the bill, and are interested in joining a growing, efficient, and highly focused startup in the gaming market, we want to meet you.
