Business Development Associate

  • Los Angeles

VentureDevs provides strategy, design, and development services to top startups and global enterprises. We are a diverse team of creative collaborators with ambitious growth goals (we more than tripled our growth this year alone) and are searching for a passionate Business Development Associate to join the LA squad. If you are a perfect blend of technology and business you'll be at home in this role. We aren't a standard "sales team" and as a result you will have the opportunity to put your research, strategy, and communication skills to work as you utilize technology to create unique approaches to outbound lead generation and conversion. This role has huge growth potential as you will support the biz dev team at every point in the sales process, learning best practices along the way. We are seeking someone who, like us, values quality over quantity and sees meaningful relationships as a driving force behind business success.

This position is primarily remote, but we meet twice weekly to collaborate, strategize, create, and of course, eat good food!

  • Extremely tech-savvy with prior experience using CRM software
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Able to produce detailed research and well-written documentation easily
