On the Hunt for a Marketing Guru! Could it Be You?

TicketCity TeamI don’t mean to brag (but I am) when I say that one of the things I love best about my career at TicketCity is that whenever someone asks me about what I do, I consistently get the same response, “You have the best job!”  And it’s true, I do.  Where else could I combine my interest and experience in marketing with the excitement of sports, concerts and entertainment?  As my friends have told me more than once, “Man, AC, you got the life!” So it’s part of my job not only to keep up with sports and live events but to go to some of them. And I get to live in Austin, TX.  Man, I do have the best job.

So all that wasn’t to sell you on the Marketing Manager position we have open at TicketCity.  All of that was to see if you’re as excited and passionate about sports and events as we are.  If you are, and you have solid marketing experience under your belt, then you just might be the person we’re looking for.  Check out the job description below and tell us all about how you’re the one we want by sending an email with your resume to marketingmanager@ticketcity.com  You can also view this job description and other career opportunities on our website on the Join Our Team page.
