Business Director


We're looking for a Business Director to join our growing team. You'll work closely together with the founders / creative directors to help grow the agency and explore new opportunities. The Business Director must be adept at understanding and managing client needs and expectations as well as providing strategic leadership for a multidisciplinary agency team. 


You're a manager with a point of view on business strategy who thrives on developing strong relations between clients and agency teams. The Business Director demonstrates knowledge and insight into the process of growing or launching a business.


Bust most importantly: we're looking for an awesome human being. Is this you? Get in touch!

What you have:

  • 6-10 years of experience in business development, account management, sales, or new business within a creative company or agency.

  • A strong track record of managing clients and closing new business in the agency sector. 

  • A passion for building brands (branding, design, digital experience, and advertising).

  • You're an excellent communicator and excel at building strong partnerships with clients. 

  • You are a hybrid with an open view and a let's-get-shit-done mentality. You don't shy away from getting your hands dirty.

What we need:

  • A creative and strategic thinker: innovative and provocative strategies to solve our client's marketing and communication needs.

  • Someone with experience in account management, business development and equipped with an entrepreneurial spirit, eager to help the agency grow. 

  • Passion and charisma for telling our story. You believe in the work we do and showcase a firm understanding of the overall startup ecosystem. You confidently communicate our company vision and philosophy to the larger community of founders, CMOs, and investors, and can build deep relationships with key leaders.

  • You can effectively articulate the power of strong branding and advertising as core drivers of business success. 

  • A collaborative and independent spirit, with the entrepreneurial drive to run with projects and client relationships. You are able to look beyond our clients' business needs and establish a foundation of trust.

  • You can independently develop proposals and usher them through discussions, negotiation, and commitment.
