DESCRIPTION

We are looking for a US native agent to join our business development team. As part of our business development team, you won’t be required to do any door-to-door brick and mortar sales activity. Instead, you’ll be involved in the following activities:

  • Talking with web agencies and handling the relationship with them (part of our success is due to the relationship we establish with web agencies, marketing agencies and web professionals in general, as we offer them support on the legal needs of their clients);

  • Managing our new Partner Program (we've recently launched a certification program for web professionals willing to resell our services to their clients in order to better support them in this process);

  • Growing our client base in the “value-added services” area and pushing for upgrades and up-sells with the already existing clients.

Location

  • Remote.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Fluency in English (US native-level English strongly preferred as you will be working with the US market);

  • Communication and marketing skills;

  • Knowing the web, how it works, its technologies and mechanisms;

  • Understanding how the web works technically, at least on a surface level (you need to understand how HTML, CSS, Javascript & Co. work);

  • Willingness to learn and utilize emerging technologies;

  • Being sales-oriented and capable of effectively closing deals;

  • Attention to detail;

  • Motivated self-starter, with a willingness to learn and work in a fast-paced environment;

  • Ability to adapt to changing situations;

  • Excellent time management skills;

  • Passionate, positive and a creative spirit.

Added values

  • Additional languages (French, German, Spanish) are more than welcome;

  • Interest and/or experience in tech & software.

BENEFITS

  • LEARNING BUDGET - We’ll sponsor your professional growth by providing a budget that can be used for courses, events, workshops and books.

  • COMPETITIVE SALARY - We offer a highly competitive salary when compared with other Italian startups since we have high standards on finding the best people to join our team.

  • REMOTE WORK - You can work from one of our offices in Italy or remotely. We are used and fully structured to onboard people who rather work full-time remotely.

  • RETREATS - Twice a year (summer and winter) we get together in amazing destinations to work, bond and enjoy team building activities.

  • FLEXIBLE WORKING HOURS - We have a remote work policy for those not under a remote contract.

  • WORK EQUIPMENT - We’ll provide an equipment allowance so that you can perform at your best.

  • GREAT WORK ENVIRONMENT - Work in a casual (no dress code!) but continuously growing environment.

    Job description

    We're hiring a Business Development Manager to join us either remotely from US (preferably California), from Dublin, London or Amsterdam, or in our headquarters in Budapest, Hungary. 

    Hi there, business development manager

    Our step library currently features 200+ integrations that allow developers to string together services to build, test and distribute their applications. At Bitrise, your main mission will be accelerating the growth of that library. Your metrics are new users acquired by comarketing, new step usage and total number of available steps. They are your guiding light as you dive into the world of mobile app development, developers and the technology they use.

    You’ll find, support and collaborate with companies that have created technology or services that mobile developers love. You’ll use your keen analytical mind to assess potential additions to our library of third-party integrations, tap into your storytelling experience to explain why being a part of this library will be of immense benefit and use your people skills to build relationships based on co-marketing, sharing of insights and a joint desire to help mobile developers build better apps.

    Even though you don’t need to have any direct development experience and you won’t be required to build applications yourself, you will need to have (or gain) an understanding of the services and tools (mobile) developers use and why. As such, affinity with technology is a must and experience with developers is a big plus.

    Why get onboard the Bitrise rocket?

    Bitrise is going places. Literally. After being part of Y-Combinator in '17 we came back to Budapest and built the definitive continuous integration and delivery platform for mobile app developers. Now, with countless mobile unicorns, Fortune 500 companies and top app developers using Bitrise, we're expanding into new markets across the globe and are growing faster than ever.

    We're not just here to make developer's lives easier, but we're fundamentally changing the mobile app development process. For the better.

    Requirements

    What you'll actually be doing

    • Speak to - and build relationships with - mobile app development technology providers around the world;

    • Identify new business opportunities and come to mutually beneficial arrangements with third party vendors;

    • Act as non-technical onboarding support for new partners and connect them to your engineering counterparts when necessary;

    • Participate in - and contribute to - broader Bitrise growth efforts, leveraging your knowledge and experience as a business development manager;

    • Work closely with our content team (responsible for announcing new integrations), our digital UA team (responsible for the step library as a user acquisition channel) and the rest of the growth team in our efforts to grow the size and impact of the Bitrise step library.
