We are looking for a head of Business Development to lead partnerships and build out a sales team at MapBox in San Francisco. We are rapidly growing, and to date we have not had a dedicated sales team – everything has been organic. Now we’re looking to radically expand our partnerships in the Bay Area and across the country and build out a full sales and account team to continue our rapid growth. We’re just getting started.
You’ll be expected to think creatively and strategically about establishing a diverse array of partnerships. MapBox works closely with organizations like the Knight Foundation and OpenStreetMap US, fast-paced tech startups like Foursquare, Evernote, and GitHub, and with some of the leading satellite and aerial imagery infrastructure providers like DigitalGlobe and Skybox. We’re also constantly pushing public-private sector partnerships through open data by leveraging the products of NASA, USGS, the US Census Bureau and more.
Our team is a tight-knit group of 35, including cartographers, data analysts, and software engineers. In the past three years, we’ve built our entire stack using open source software and open data. You’ll be a core part of this team, helping establish business direction for our products and making the most of our fast-paced R+D.
Qualities we’re looking for
A great communicator with passion for learning whatever it takes to get the job done.
A technologist who is hungry to learn the details of how MapBox builds and runs its products.
Past business development leadership experience, including building a sales team from the ground up.
Understands the geo/location space and is ready to be part of a disruptive team.
Rapid-growth startup experience (a plus).
