HomeAdvisor Media Sales Associate - FELIX in New York, New York
Felix, an IAC business and sister company to HomeAdvisor, powers local commerce by connecting consumers with businesses at the moment they're ready to make a purchase.

In 2012, Felix's product was featured in Business Insider's "The Best Startup Pitches We've Ever Seen". Most importantly, every year we drive millions of measurable consumer transactions with our small businesses.
Felix is based in the heart of New York City and is committed to perfecting the way that consumers find and transact with local businesses. As a division of InterActiveCorp (IAC), our family of sister companies includes OKCupid, Vimeo, CollegeHumor, Match.com, Ask.com, About.com and dozens of other successful internet brands.
