JOB PURPOSE

Business Development Managers work directly with clients to craft customized solutions using Seven Bridges’ platform and expertise.

Ultimately, you are responsible for building and sustaining relationships with key stakeholders for the company, which results in winning business. In addition, you steer projects identified as top priorities, employing strategy and strong interpersonal acumen.
