Are you a mover, hand-shaker and rain maker? Yep, we’d like that.
We are seeking a Director of Business Development and Partnerships for our core team in Boston. This role is vital to the rapid international expansion we have set in motion, and to achieve our massive vision in the co-living innovation space and beyond. This core role will allow you to shake hands with the best of the best, make deals with the hottest companies and organizations, as well as work with the brightest entrepreneurs in the innovation economy.
WHO YOU ARE
The phone is your best friend. Meetings with executives and entrepreneurs make you feel like you just won a mini-lottery, and maybe even do a happy dance. You don’t feel fulfilled unless you are driving business success for your company. You think on your feet, listen more than you talk and are a professional story teller. Oh, and your track record of success will tell us you are all the above. You are not a jerk; our potential partners probably won’t like that, and neither will we.

Be “first seat” on key partnership deals, including developing awesome biz dev proposals, sales marketing materials and creative tools to capture new partners.
Meet required sponsorship, partnership and corporate development quotas for each city.
Meetings, meetings and more meetings.
Work closely with our CEO to innovate on all sponsorship, partnership and corporate programs.
Be our networking machine and continue to spread the word of our awesome Krash brand.
Close deals, of course!
