Startup Europe. Grown up reporting
Sifted is a new media platform, backed by the Financial Times, reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe. Three years after launching, our high-quality journalism is a must-read for many founders, investors and people working in startups across the continent.
Our team of reporters, based across Europe, aren’t chasing the latest funding announcements or product releases; plenty of other sites have got that covered. We are telling the stories that should be told — big startup trends, compelling company profiles and the everyday lessons that come from growing a business and messing up along the way. We have also just raised £4m to do more of what we do, even better.
We work with a diverse range of companies, from big tech and large corporates to early-stage startups looking to increase their visibility. We’re constantly developing new products so you’ll be selling a full suite of media products from digital advertising to events and reports sponsorships.
We’ve already helped over 100 clients position their brands and products with Sifted’s audience through advertising with Sifted, but we want to help more.
We’re a fast-growing team with huge ambitions, and an exciting path ahead of us. We’re always on the hunt for amazing salespeople to join us on this journey, to help us grow the business through selling our advertising and sponsorship offerings to relevant clients who want to position themselves as key players within the European startup ecosystem.
We’re looking for business development professionals with proven experience selling media products including (but not limited to) digital advertising, reports, events, newsletters and bespoke products.
We have a small-company mindset but big company goals, and can draw on many of the strengths and benefits of being a world-respected brand the Financial Times. We’re friendly, hard-working and passionate about what we do. We collaborate across disciplines and value feedback, honesty and clear communication.
