THE ROLE

As a Proposal Manager, you're an ambitious and experienced writing professional looking to mentor a vibrant team and share your expertise on best practices and processes. Your forte is in writing, developing and editing end-to-end proposal content for various RFPs/RFQs/RFI/SOWs and whatever other writing-related acronyms exist - once a challenge is presented to you, you're itching to research, learn, write and deliver.

Your role includes coordinating the creation and submission of proposals from scoping out RFP opportunities to delivering the finished product with top-notch quality. You take pride in communicating on behalf of the company within your writing, both to internal and external stakeholders. Your team members include not only more junior Proposal Writers, but also Developers, Project Managers and R&D aficionados.

You're not only a strong writer, but also a strategic thinker; you breeze through the analysis of large and complex documents, conduct research, and devise a winning strategy that incorporates client vision alongside our organizational values. You're as creative as you are technically-sound and have a yearning to bring your passion and quality-driven delivery to a small, but mighty, writing team.
