Job description

Big Cabal Media tells the African stories that matter to Africans (on and off the continent) and to global audiences. Riding a wave of global distribution platforms seeking new stories and high-quality local content, and audiences that are consuming ever more content, Big Cabal is building the most exciting new media company to tell those stories.

We create content in a wide range of formats for global distribution, under our two publications - TechCabal and Zikoko.

TechCabal vividly captures the players, human impact and business of technology in Africa; providing the content, reporting, data and events to help the world understand where tech is taking Africa.

Zikoko is telling the most important stories that matter to young African audiences today, creating timeless and original text, image, meme and video based content across various genres using the most relatable elements of youth culture.

Join us as we take African storytelling to a new level and build the media brands of the future. BCM is passionate about storytelling, technology, great design and unabashed monetization of great content. We’re interested in talented and adaptable professionals looking to do challenging and high-impact work in a collaborative environment. If this sounds exciting and you’ve got skills, then we should talk.

As a Sales Associate at BCM, your primary responsibilities include:

  • Understanding and selling BCM inventory.
  • Creating proposals and proposal templates that effectively sell BCM products/inventory.

**Working at Big Cabal Media ** You'll be joining a group of focused, hard-working, creative people who are passionate about doing work that's challenging and fun.

We're a very digital company, working via Slack, Google Docs and cloud-based solutions where possible. We currently have a hybrid-remote setup, with most of the team doing two days in the office each week and working remotely the rest of the time. We typically try to arrange work between 9am and 6pm WAT and encourage you to have a good work-life balance, but we don’t have a stick up our butt about hours. What we do have a stick up our butt about is quality and results. Our people get things done fast and well.

While collaborative work will be the norm and is the requirement, people who want to work at BCM must also demonstrate initiative and the ability to work without creating more work for their line manager.

**Compensation and perks **

  • Industry competitive salary
  • 20 days annual leave
  • Statutory pension contribution
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Access to cool events and travel
