Partnerships Director, West Coast

San Francisco

Partnership Directors at Ueno are responsible for vetting, nurturing and securing new business leads. They are the first point of contact for all new clients. Partnership Directors report to the CEO.


A few words about you

  • You've been around, having led led Partnerships or New Business at a creative agency or a similar organization (say, a zoo or a pirate ship) for at least five years, and lived to tell the tale.
  • You're good at bringing in the bacon and/or an acceptable vegan substitute, having brought in at least $10m (give or take) in revenue a year where you were before, or even where you are right now, reading this job description and wondering what it would be like working for one of Ad Age’s top 25 places to work in 2019. Just saying.
  • You've got a network of happy clients who love working with you, and who might be wondering where you're headed next.
  • You're a fundamentally decent human being who offers to water your neighbor’s plants when they go on holiday, doesn’t use “concept” as a verb, and prefers responsible long-term growth to sleazy short-term, commission-based tomfoolery.

A few words about what this role is not

Our bright and bustling office in Soma is a hotbed of creativity. We’re just down the street from Twitter, who for some reason still hasn’t asked us to work for them. What’s up with that?
