Advertising firm hiring for business development jobs in Illinois

Posted on July 10, 2011

Good news for sales reps: one firm said this week it is ramping up hiring for business development jobs in Illinois.

ValueClick, an online advertiser, said this week it is hiring in several markets, including for sales jobs in Chicago.

The company plans to increase its workforce by over 10 percent as part of its global organic growth strategy. Over 100 positions in the areas of sales, business development and technology are available in primary markets such as New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston and Los Angeles, as well as additional positions in secondary markets across North America.

“As evidenced by our published financial results, all of ValueClick’s digital marketing products are growing well. With our recent expansion of video and most recent acquisition of Greystripe mobile advertising, we are serving a much broader market,” said Jim Zarley, chief executive officer of ValueClick. “It’s exciting to be a part of this organization and we need additional intelligent, motivated go-getters to keep up with our momentum.”

eMarketer reports that online advertising is expected to generate $31 billion in revenue in 2011, a 20% increase from 2010. Additionally, with the increasing popularity of smartphones and tablets, mobile advertising revenue is expected to top $2 billion by 2013. With its innovative technology, over 12 years of industry savvy and the acquisition of Greystripe, ValueClick is in a great position to benefit from these trends.

“ValueClick has the expertise and products to offer our advertisers; now we need more resources to accommodate the demand for them,” said Bill Todd, president of ValueClick’s Media division. “We are dedicated to building the best sales team and customer support group in the business. I challenge anyone who is looking for the opportunity for career advancement in a fun and creative environment to apply.”

ValueClick has an extensive portfolio of offerings ranging from direct response to high-end brand campaigns. Many of these offerings include new and interactive solutions such as mobile immersion ads for the iPad, pre-roll video ads and other rich media alternatives.

“We are constantly improving upon our existing cutting-edge technology and to do so requires a top-notch engineering team,” said Peter Wolfert, chief technology officer of ValueClick. “We are always looking for outstanding analysts, developers, programmers and designers to maintain our current level of excellent performance and to create new ways to meet and exceed our customers’ marketing objectives.”

ValueClick is now hiring in 13 locations in North America with additional openings in Europe and Asia. For more information and to apply please visit our careers page.
