Why join our team?

Work

As the premier media and marketing services company in Northeast Florida, we know that each team member plays a vital role in our success.

That’s why we look for candidates who demonstrate aptitude and potential as well as the ability to take initiative and work collaboratively. With a population of more than 1 million, the Jacksonville metropolitan area offers a vibrant and affluent marketplace.

Working with us, means joining a team that is able to reach and engage this market better than any other local media company. Independent research shows that combined, The Florida Times-Union and Jacksonville.com reach 52 percent of the adults in the five-county metropolitan area every week. 

Play

Known for its sunny skies and magnificent views of the water, Jacksonville offers perks — like an average annual temperature of 70 degrees — that most markets can’t match.

We are home to the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, and proudly boast the largest urban parks system in the U.S, with more than 111,000 acres of preserved land. From our office windows, we enjoy a view of the beautiful St. Johns River. It’s only a short drive to miles of sandy beaches, including Atlantic Beach, which is one of the Travel Channel’s Top 10 Beaches and Best Kept Secret Beaches in Florida.

I started working at Times-Union Media in July 2017. I had always worked for in-house marketing departments, doing everything from graphic design to copy editing, filming for commercials to coding for email campaigns. The chance to help different businesses and industries strategize their marketing plans while being able to use my own first-hand experiences was something that intrigued me. Times-Union Media is a great mix of strategy plus creativity, and I could tell that I’d be surrounded by a team of like-minded innovators who would help me really grow in my career.

Leann Williams

Media Consultant, Times-Union Media

In my 40+ years as a professional journalist, I’ve had the pleasure of working at some of the finest newspapers in the state. I came to The Florida Times-Union as sports editor in 1992. Without hesitation, I can say the experience I’ve had here the past 24-plus years has been the most rewarding.

From the unique perspective of working in a newsroom for 19 years and now in Specialty Publications for the past 20 years, the Florida Times-Union recognizes an employee’s hard work and commitment toward excellence with opportunities for professional development. Jacksonville is a great market to call home. Times-Union Media, likewise, is a great company with employees I’m proud to call friends and colleagues. Our company’s future has never looked brighter.

Joe DeSalvo

Managing Editor/Specialty Audience, The Florida Times-Union

I’ve worked for Times-Union Media for over 20 years! I chose to work here because I’ve always enjoyed what the newspaper had to offer as a product. Digital marketing, however, has certainly changed the landscape. I love the fact that you can help a business with a specific pain or need, and do it with high efficiency, targeting and with very little waste. Digital marketing shows customers results in real-time. Plus, adjustments can be made on the fly.

The TU has made the necessary investments in the right partners and continuous training that allows me and our sales division to continue to be the leader in the digital space. Beyond that, we have invested in support infrastructure such as design, development of ideas, and execution and fulfillment. Our goal is to provide our customer with the latest tactics and most innovative ideas.

David Sandeen

Sales Manager, Times-Union Media

When I moved back to Jacksonville from the Orlando area in 2017, I wanted to work for a company that was reputable within the community. As a graduate from the University of Central Florida with a degree in marketing, I also looked for a company that would allow me to grow and continue to build on my knowledge in advertising and marketing.
At Times-Union Media, we have an extensive training program, along with resources and tools that help keep our team up-to-date with the latest trends in advertising. Along with that, everyone from the top-down is always willing to help provide insight and advice.

Charles Betts

Media Consultant - GateHouse Auto, Times-Union Media

I started working at Times-Union Media in September 2016. I have a degree in Media/Communications from Florida State University and all of my internships had been in digital marketing/IT so naturally I was drawn to this industry. I had met one of the real estate reps when I was applying for jobs and was so impressed with her passion for the TU, I knew I wanted to be a part of it all. Whether it’s big or small, I truly feel that I’m actually making a difference at Times Union.

I enjoy the fast paced work environment and the amazing team! I am so blessed to be a part of the TU family; everyone pushes you to be the best you can be and cheers you up when you’re having a rough day. We truly are a supportive TEAM, which is rare in many sales environments.
