Business Development

This is not a typical “sales” position. We are seeking business development professionals to convert sales leads into projects. We prefer to work with current/former freelance WordPress developers with an eye for business processes, successful marketing, and most importantly, a passion for converting our client’s vision into a tangible reality. You are responsible for meeting with potential clients, understanding their business and pain points, and writing proposals and contracts. You will work directly with our Project Manager and Creative Team using our streamlined estimation and proposal system.

This is a 1099 contract position which is paid on commission. We will provide a “cafe membership” at NextSpace Coworking which provides shared seating and meeting room space for you to cultivate leads and meet with customers.

We are currently seeking Business Development professionals to cover the South Bay, San Francisco, and East Bay territories.

What We Offer:

  • Medical Benefits including Dental and Vision
  • Paid Time Off
  • A dynamic work environment
  • Working with a highly-skilled and passionate team that places equal value on UI, design aesthetic and technical precision
  • A membership at NextSpace CoWorking
  • A variety of challenging and exciting projects
  • The opportunity to grow into your dream job
