- Where to Apply
Exygy partners with the world’s leading change-makers to design and build exceptional software. We’ve worked with the United Nations World Food Program, the City of San Francisco, Google.org, the Wikimedia Foundation, and the Environmental Working Group, among others. We are committed to creating fantastic products that help our clients create change. Our process includes outstanding human-centered design and standards-driven lean development.

We seek to deeply understand our partner and their problem space through rigorous research. This research becomes the backbone of a product development strategy aligned with key business outcomes.
We collaborate with our partner to design, develop, and release an amazing product.
We support our partners in their work on an ongoing basis – often over the course of multi-year relationships.
ABOUT THE ROLE: DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

Carrying our organization forward by cultivating relationships with current and prospective customers, and closing deals.
Applying strong business acumen while maintaining a relentless focus on our purpose and mission.

Achieving, and then surpassing, financial sustainability for Exygy by adjusting business strategy and tactics as necessary.
Collaborating with the CEO and COO to help guide our marketing initiatives, providing strategic and creative input.
Listening and collaborating with customers to find win-win business partnerships.
WHO YOU ARE…
…you’re industrious and can do a lot with a little. You have 5-10 years of experience starting your own company, achieving sales goals, growing a small business, or other relevant experience.
…you leverage opportunities. Your ideas shoot off like rocket fire and you can imagine possibilities left and right.
…you can talk the talk in regards to technology (don’t worry, we can walk the walk). You might even have experience working for a technology-based company.
…you are deeply passionate about our mission. Impact comes first to you and you are relationship-oriented before profit-oriented.
Articulate & Sharp.
