We are in search of a Sales & Marketing Director to join our IDEO Products team in San Francisco. This person will identify new customers, frame solutions for customers, and work with IDEO leadership to integrate IDEO Products into client relationships and programs, and co-lead marketing strategy and implementation with the D4C Products lead.
Surface and establish partnerships, sell our core products, and craft how IDEO Products show up to the outside world. You will be responsible for leading growth of our business—collaborating with business owners to set sales goals, and working with sales and marketing teams to achieve those goals and manage our sales funnel. In addition, you will use your frequent interactions with clients to help identify, and pilot new opportunities to evolve and expand our offering.
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.
This role requires design sensibilities, business acumen, and client empathy. You bring at least 7 years of experience in areas such as business development, consulting, business design, and strategy.
IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve diverse, complex challenges for our clients or the organization. You'll work alongside thoughtful individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. Sure we work hard, but we also intentionally craft moments that allow our community to pause, create, and connect. We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work, respect the need for work-life balance, and allow for autonomy in the design process and your career.
