Director, Business Development and Sales

Who we are
aeqdigital - Vancouver, BC

aeqdigital is a full-service digital agency specializing in UX design and software development. We craft winning digital products (web, mobile and IoT apps) which put clients at the heart of every solution, generating measurable results with every project.

Who you are

As a Director, Business Development and Sales, you are a hunter; strategically examining, exploring customer segments, thriving in customer dialogue and pitch presentations. You live and breathe sales and business development. It’s what you love!

You are amazing at building out pipelines, identifying and developing strategic relationships, then converting these relationships into clients, both toward short and long term. You won’t get fazed when handed large-scale engagements for high-traffic content sites, e-commerce, web and mobile app development—projects that are intricate, wide-ranging and require a deeply innovative, and future-thinking mindset.

What you’ll be getting up to

You will lead the aeqdigital Business Development and Sales initiatives challenged to move forward some of our biggest clients, as well as grow a roster of new ones looking for best in-class experiences. You can expect to learn our business inside and out, learn our successes to date and tailor your style when selling solutions. You will be accountable for the process from prospect and lead generation all the way to contract stage, and handing the contact over to project and other teams successfully. You can also expect to contribute strategically to the leadership level team, for example our company’s value proposition. You will work closely with the Marketing and Operations teams collaborating, yet it will be your job to run the pitch process from start-to-finish, including assessing initial opportunities, collaborating with key internal stakeholders on pitch deliverables, interfacing with prospective clients, and creating written RFP responses.
