  • Conduct research to identify new markets and client needs, and in turn, build a list of prospect development studios and publishers for outreach
  • Identify the needs and type of service to offer for the selected prospect
  • Reach out, communicate, and build a rapport with the prospective clients to set a meeting for Discovery Calls where the prospect is taken into identifying need and solution
  • The goal is to set meetings for the company sales/CEO. You are only selling the meeting now, and the CEO will do the rest. We currently have a well above the average industry sales per meeting ratio as high as 70% for well-qualified prospects
  • Establish a monthly KPI/sales quota to achieve on a per-week basis for meetings and sales
  • Communicate and manage the Lead Generation team member(s)

This role is fully remote, and the right candidate is expected to work full time while managing their schedule of 35-40 hours per week.

Compensation: Base Compensation + A Competitive Commission Per Closed Sale.

Business Development Manager Qualifications / Skills:

  • Motivation for sales: sales drive you, and each sale excites you—every “no” fuel you to double down to more prospecting and outreach. Rejection does not affect you negatively!
  • Prospecting skills: be able to identify potential early and act quickly.
  • Selling to customer’s needs: You do not try to sell something that the prospect does not need, but instead, you identify the need first and offer just that.
  • Closing skills: You need to have the confidence and sales knowledge to get prospects to the next step.
  • Sales planning: You are organized and thorough at all times.
  • Market knowledge: You are a gamer by night and spend hours during the day working or learning about the video game industry or related experience.
  • Presentation skills: pitching and presenting are fun for you!
  • Energy level: Talking to you wakes people up and motivates them. Bubbly yet on point.
  • Meeting sales goals: just like the gym, you bench on sales numbers, and you keep pushing the boundary. If you do not reach it this month, you take it personally and go to war!
  • Professionalism: you uphold yourself to the highest standard, do not engage in negativity, and continue to push through with a great attitude.
  • Strong command of writing and speaking in English.
  • Be presentable and well-groomed for a better impression of prospects with a clean social/online presence across multiple channels.

We are looking for a self-driven, self-starter and never settle for a lesser type of unicorn!

Education and Experience Requirements:

  • While traditional education is admirable, we want to see communication, sales, business, lead generation, or related industry experience over school years.
  • Some experience in a sales or business development position, doing similar tasks preferred.  
  • Other experiences in video game community management, social media management, or marketing are a major plus as you will be more knowledgeable of what you are pitching to prospects.
