We're Hiring at Seattle's Child!

The Company

Seattle's Child was the first local parenting magazine in the country when it started in 1979. A media company, we publish Seattle's Child monthly magazine, special annual guides, our website, enewsletters and an app. We are dedicated to supporting and informing parents, as well as telling and celebrating the unique stories of all families in our community.


Advertising Account Executive

Seattle's Child has been a leader in the parenting media industry since launching the first local parenting magazine in the country in 1979. Today, we continue to enjoy exceptional year-over-year growth in both digital and print sales.

We're looking for a highly motivated individual to manage a substantial base of current, loyal clients as well as prospect, cold call, develop and close new business.

Print and digital sales experience is highly desirable but fundraising and/or sales experience in other industries is also acceptable.

You'll work remotely from your home with a fun, highly talented and capable team, but this is not a position suited for someone who thrives off working in an office environment. 

Responsibilities include:

 — Identify revenue opportunities with existing clients/advertising agencies to grow existing relationships.

— Prospect, cold call and successfully sell to new accounts.

— Reach established sales goals
— Demonstrate strong organizational and communication skills; ability to manage each stage of an ad-buy process, from initial conversation to hand-off to production department

—  Work with the publisher, editorial and production department to develop innovative, effective marketing solutions for existing and new clients in our magazine, annual guides and digital products 

—  Excell at working independently with little oversight. 

Hours: Part-Time or Full-Time (TBD)

Pay: Commission with bonuses


Freelance Writers



Calling all Greater Seattle writers! Seattle's Child magazine has thrived on the fascinating, funny, heartwarming, and extraordinary stories of local parents and writers (and parent-writer hybrids) for over 40 years. We rely on writers with diverse perspectives and backgrounds to connect authentically with the broad readership we serve. Covering things-to-do, food-to-eat, education, local businesses, social justice, evidence (and anecdote)-based parenting advice, and everything else under the clouds that is important to families in Seattle, we're always on the hunt for the next great story. Have a newsworthy idea? We want to hear all about it! Here's how to pitch us: 


1) Familiarize yourself with our archives. What have we covered recently? What section would you like to write for? What can you say that hasn't been said before? 


2) Write a concise e-mail (three paragraphs, or so) telling us what you already know about the story you have in mind, what you don’t know yet, and who you want to talk to to find out. We want to know, most of all, why you’re interested in the topic. Let us know why you're the best person to write this story. 


3) Include a few links to your previously published work. No published clips yet? No problem. Send us a short sample of your writing that gives us a sense of your style and interests. 


4) We're always on the lookout for compelling human-interest stories, personal essays, investigative pieces, and new things-to-do with kids in the city. 


5) If you don't hear back from us within one week, follow-up! Editor-parent hybrids are busy, but we strive to respond in a timely fashion.
