Business Development Manager, Running Pony
Providing outstanding service to our clients is a vital part of our success. And Running Pony is looking for a Client Service professional with the ability to talk to anyone about anything (and yes, we mean even to the wall about the drying paint) and a desire to dazzle and delight clients and work with them to determine how we can best tell their stories.
What do you need to be considered for this position? 5+ years of relevant experience is preferred. Beyond that, be a detail-oriented team player and a massive multi-tasker with a passion to do the impossible.
In this position, you’ll be the lead on new business efforts—with a heavy emphasis on developing meaningful, long-term relationships and developing new opportunities and projects. Yes, that means sales. You’ll be expected to generate leads; contact, qualify, and meet with prospects; network heavily; respond to RFPs and write proposals; seek to grow business within existing clients; keep track of your sales efforts; and meet sales goals. You’ll work with a variety of clients, showing off our work and helping generate ideas in which our team of creative visual storytellers can solve their problems.
You’ll be an external ambassador to clients and an internal advocate for them. You’ll make them look like heroes to their bosses and be their hero for the amazing work you deliver.
What can Running Pony offer you besides a paycheck? Imagine a place where people actually like each other. I know, right? Our business is fast-paced, but it all works because Running Pony is a good place to be. We care about each other, and the whole family analogy is more than an act. We are known for our work, but one of the things we’re most proud of is that we genuinely like what we do and the people we do it with. Plus, we’re committed to spending time making our community a better place to live.
Please have: A proven track record in sales and success winning new business. Experience in working with clients and budgets in an account service, sales or project management position and a proven ability to learn complicated processes outside your area of expertise.
Know This Too And We’d Definitely Like To Talk: A background in video production or advertising/p.r. is great…a proven track record of building successful professional relationships is even better.
What Do You Get?: This is a full-time salaried gig, with benefits including health insurance coverage for you and all your dependents-we pay 100% of all your premiums, disability insurance, 401K with employer match, coffee by the cup and free snacks.
