We are looking for a Business Development Lead, based in Cambridge, MA or San Francisco, CA to join the IDEO CoLab team. In this new role, you will join a dynamic team of designers, technologists, entrepreneurs, and corporate innovators who are exploring emerging technologies and how they’ll help redesign major societal systems.
This role is focused on strengthening, selling, and expanding the CoLab membership offer. Working closely with portfolio leads across our thematic areas, you will surface and establish partnerships, lead sales for our core and supplementary membership offers, and act as a primary representative of CoLab to the outside world.
You’re a self-directed, flexible team player who embodies great interpersonal skills, learns quickly, and relishes the opportunity to support potential clients and project teams in translating challenges and questions into opportunities for innovation.
If you routinely approach challenges with a “don’t get ready, get started” mentality, and enjoy wearing many hats as part of a creative and entrepreneurial environment, we are looking for you. This role requires design sensibilities, business acumen, and client empathy.
Please submit your resume and cover letter (yes, we read cover letters) to be considered for this opportunity.
