Cloud Nine allows brand advertisers to sponsor free WiFi access at thousands of airport, hotel and café locations nationwide. Our model is simple. Users see a short ad before they connect to free WiFi. Advertisers get the opportunity to engage a receptive, tech-savvy audience in a way that’s meaningful, positive and memorable.
We’ve built a national WiFi sponsorship network that includes flagship locations like Seattle, Las Vegas and Charlotte airports. These locations use the revenue they earn from Cloud Nine to support the operation and expansion of their free WiFi networks. Campaigns have been sponsored by top advertisers like AOL, Google and Amazon.
Our team brings diverse expertise from top-tier organizations like Google, Y-Combinator and McKinsey. We’re different from other startups because we focus on the fundamentals of customer satisfaction, innovation, professionalism and measureable results instead of just chasing the next funding round. We also became profitable after eight weeks and have been growing ever since.
We’re looking for a seasoned advertising sales person with the relationships, creativity and drive to build on our initial traction and introduce top agencies and Fortune 500 brand advertisers to the benefits of our product. Candidates will be expected to quickly establish an efficient sales pipeline and start building out a world-class sales team, and must have a proven track record in advertising sales. Candidate may be based either in our San Francisco or New York office.
