Chicago, Illinois, USA

About Thoughtworks

We are a global software consultancy and a community of passionate, purpose-led individuals. We think disruptively to deliver technology to address our clients' toughest challenges, all while seeking to revolutionize the IT industry and create positive social change around the world.

Thoughtworks is searching for a Senior Outbound Business Development Manager to join our Central office to support our growing clients in North America. Business Development Managers at Thoughtworks are responsible for developing and securing a pipeline of new opportunities and establishing an early relationship with the client.  

What to expect:

  • Develop a pursuit  plan and a pipeline of new clients and client engagements.
  • Successfully convert new target accounts, creating the foundation for long-term, value-based relationships. Success is nurturing and the sale of win-win value propositions and nurturing executive relationships for continuing business.
  • Ensure the creation and execution of pursuit strategies, and build “win-win” value propositions at the company and at individual levels with clients
  • Approach client executives as true business partners versus software delivery partners, expanding Thoughtworks engagement to encompass the breadth and depth of our capabilities, including where appropriate, our world-leading Global Delivery centers.
  • Recognize that our people and our clients are at the center of everything we do
  • Leverage your own and TW-provided market research to identify, build a business case for and present your pursuit targets
  • Leverage available tools, events and marketing support to develop pitches, proposals, presentations, etc for target accounts

Here’s what you’ll bring:

  • Technology and consulting acumen with the ability to positively translate into business value
  • Strong customer value orientation - you want your clients to succeed with their objectives
  • The expertise to sell premium, not commoditized, services.
  • “Hunter” mentality with a proven record of success driving complex sales through a disciplined process.
  • Demonstrable track record of generating deals in excess of $20-50M 
  • Comfortability and experience engaging with C-level stakeholders at the business and technology level, using a consultative selling approach to maximize the customer outcomes
  • An entrepreneurial drive that ensures you will be able to rally other TWers around necessary activities and be willing to “get your hands dirty” with artifact creation.

A few important things to know:

While we’ve traditionally been a traveling consultancy, travel is not required for this role at the moment. We anticipate the need for travel to our client locations in the future when it’s deemed safe.
