We’re looking to hire a Business Development Manager in San Francisco to discover and sell into new organizations.
You'll work closely with one of our co-founders, and the rest of the business team, to build and manage your own sales pipeline. You’ll run a full desk, handling both the initial outreach and closing new opportunities. As the only member of our team on the West Coast, you’ll be the go-to person on everything SF.
