JobHintz provides a listing of new job openings at Living Social and their salary ranges. Asked about the areas that Living Social is hiring for and the pay levels, Carla Olson, the general manager of JobHintz responded: “Most Living Social new reqs are in sales. A typical job, Account Executive, pays between $42,000 and $70,000 per year. This may not be a great amount for experienced hires, but the good news is that you don't have to be an experienced sales rep to work at Living Social. All you need is people skills and creativity.” At Living Social, account executives have the option to work from home, where they could be on the phone rounding up more merchants and other kinds of organizations to participate in Living Social's discount strategies. However, some jobs are onsite, mostly in the Living Social headquarter location, Washington DC.
The other areas where Living Social is hiring extensively are engineering and event management. Living Social is recruiting engineers for both its headquarter location, Washington DC, and its Boulder, Colorado office. According to JobHintz, software engineering candidates can expect to get paid between $85,000 and $115,000 annually at Living Social. Event managers’ primary responsibility is to develop and organize exciting local events and experiences, under the guidance of the city manager, and manage a team of part-time event staff. The event manager job at Living Social pays between $40,000 and $55,000. “Those salary ranges are quite typical for social commerce companies, such as Living Social and Groupon” says Carla Olson. “But candidates should be aware that the competition for Living Social jobs is quite steep, since they hire only the best and brightest.”
