We are Rockbeatspaper, a small web design / development firm in High Point, NC. Our clients typically include churches/non-profits, record labels, small to medium sized businesses and start-ups.
We’re are positioned for growth at this time and need someone self-motivated that we can depend on to actively and regularly pursue new business opportunities that result in signed contracts.
We are located in the Triad NC (Greensboro / High Point / Winston-Salem) and we don’t care where you live, but being in a large city helps (particularly if it’s in Florida, New York, Chicago, California, Barcelona, Madrid, Sydney, Paris or London). After all, it’s hard to find new business if you’re nowhere near it. :) Ideally, we would love to secure talent in a few large, bustling areas as well as someone local to the Triad NC to increase our local reach. Because you won’t be here in the office with us every day, you’ll need to regularly update us on new leads and the status of any negotiations. We’ll probably do this once a week by phone, Skype or iChat. Knowledge of Basecamp to manage biz leads is a huge plus!!
One of our managing partners will assist in writing proposals, SOWs and estimates with your input, however, it’s vital that you understand the type of work and clients we’re looking for and actively seek out only that type of work. You also need to represent the company well and understand our culture and how we work. So really this is largely based on how well we get along and how much work you can bring in. We genuinely love design and have a great time doing it. It helps if you share some similar interests.
The ideal person for this job is: self-motivated; sets and achieves goals; outgoing; great communicator; great sense of humor; lives in a large city; has connections; is honest and dependable; was at one time a designer and / or developer; has worked in design, advertising, entertainment, non-profits; understands our industry; has prior sales experience.
Payment is a fixed 10% commission on any signed contracts. So if you bring in a $10,000 job, once the client has agreed to the scope of work, a contract has been signed and deposit received, you’ll get a check for $1,000. This commission could increase for the right biz dev superstar! There’s no limit on how much we pay you. As long as you keep bringing in work, you’ll get paid for it.
If you’ve done this type of work before, it’d be nice to see some examples of work you’ve brought in for other companies.
* no set schedule, work when you want * no limit on how much you can earn
