full-time Octoly Paris

At Octoly, we think traditional advertising is dead. Smart brands don’t buy traditional media formats anymore! Instead, they’re all starting to leverage the voice and power of hundreds of real-life influencers. This is why we created the Octoly “Free Store”, a marketplace where thousands of YouTube and Instagram creators can get free products from the best and most innovative brands, in exchange for honest reviews & original content.

Octoly is currently seeking a full-time AdTech Sales to support the FR division at our new Paris Office by growing our network of French Fashion and lifestyle brands.
