WillowTree is currently hiring a VP of Business Development which is a senior, client facing role centered around developing near term project work and long term relationships with new and existing clients. Would you like to work with one of the world’s leading mobile product agencies? We build applications across all platforms, responsive sites, bots—any digital product that lives on a screen—for many well-known brands. Our elite teams challenge themselves to build extraordinary experiences by bridging the latest strategy and design thinking with enterprise-grade software development.

WillowTree’s current client roster includes: HBO, Nestle, Allianz, General Electric, Synchrony Financial, Fox Sports, PepsiCo, and many others.

WillowTree is an Inc 500/5000 company, and has been featured in the Forrester Wave for mobile/digital design and development services. We are one of a few firms globally to be certified partners with Apple, Google, SAP, and Microsoft.

About the position: This role would expose you to a wide variety of businesses, many partners within those businesses, and ever-changing business and technology challenges.

  • Cultivating and extending existing C-level relationships with current clients
  • Working with our marketing team to further define and engage new category or complementary targets
  • Partnering with clients to construct solutions to their technical and business needs
  • Collaborating with our Solutions Architects and Product teams to craft executive-level proposals, pitches, and SOWs for prospective and existing clients
  • Report to Partner/Chief Commercial Officer

Must Haves:

  • Professional experience and deep understanding of mobile technology is required
  • Quick-thinking
  • Experience working with and presenting to C-level professionals of Fortune 500 companies
  • Creativity -- often times our clients are looking for inspiration and direction -- genuine enthusiasm/creativity in coming up with solutions for brands/clients

Bonus points:

  • An engineering degree or CS background
  • Master’s Degree in Business Administration
