Be Part of the Magic.
Insivia is a fast growing interactive studio that thrives on passion, innovation, and agility. We embrace adversity and get strangely excited when solving the most complex, big business challenges for our clients.
We have developed and launched a new product called Lisyn ( http://www.lisyn.co ) that delivers an audio version of short-form content such as articles and whitepapers through a mobile app for anytime consumption. Lisyn easily integrates with a content creator’s websites and lets visitors add the content they choose to their list.
What We Are Looking For.
We are looking for an out-going, smart go-getter who is willing to hit the pavement through events and leveraging relationships – maybe a tiny bit of cold calling – to reach new prospects for our SAAS product Lisyn. As a startup, we are looking for someone willing to wear a lot of hats and take on any need for the business no matter what it is.
Our product is selling in the newspaper, magazine and content publishing space including corporate brands who utilize content marketing.
