Business Development Manager

San Francisco

Hello, this is Ueno. Nice to meet you.

OK. Now that we’re done with the pleasantries, we can get down to business. Because this is all about business.

You see, we love business, and we want more of it.

That’s where you come in. Because we’re looking for someone like you. Someone who’s all business, all the time. Business, business, business.

So, you get it. It’s about business. More specifically, it’s about the business things in these business bullet points:

  • Our clients. We love our clients. They love us. And we want it to stay that way. You are really good at making sure it does.

  • New clients. They are out there. Some of them just don’t know it yet. You are great at helping potential clients become new clients, and then slowly becoming just regular clients (see the above bullet point).

  • Relationships. Building long-term relationships based on trust comes naturally to you. Because you’re trustworthy — like us. You’ll be one of the first people our new clients meet with, so this is super important.

  • Business peace, business love and business understanding. You represent us to our clients, but you also represent our clients to us. That’s why you’re very good at understanding where they come from, figuring out what they need, how we can best help them, and communicating all that with the rest of us.

You like to get down to business:

  • When a new business opportunity pops up, you have a system. You always know how to respond.

  • You tend to, grow and nurture all our business relationships, new and old.

  • You understand our clients, and figure out their needs (sometimes before they do), communicating it all to the rest of us in a way that makes sense for everybody.

  • When a new business opportunity comes up, you make sure we make the most of it by responding in a way that works for both the client and our team, from first contact to internal hand-off.

  • You’re good at creating proposals and presentations, both working with our team and, if you have to, without it.

  • You maintain a pipeline of opportunities with new and existing clients, and review it regularly with management.

  • You make sure our initial estimates and contracts are reality-based and work out for everybody.

Experience. You’ve got it.

  • You’ve worked at a digital agency for 5+ years, taking care of new business or account services with great success. (We like success.)
  • You know how to develop a successful business development process, and make it happen.
  • You’re quite the expert at fielding RFI/RFPs and coordinating pitch teams.
  • You excel at creating and managing a solid pipeline report.
  • You really know how to communicate, both verbally and in writing.
  • You love working with people, but you like to think for yourself.
  • You’re exceptionally well organized, with a good eye for details.

That’s more or less it. Sounds interesting? Good. Apply via the form below -- make sure to include a link to your LinkedIn profile.

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?
