Business Development Manager Etsy
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED The business development manager will assist the head of business development with many ongoing growth initiatives, particularly focusing on partnerships that drive visit growth and new customer acquisition. As such, this role will work hand-in-hand with Etsy?s marketing team. It will be necessary to build internal and external relationships to maximize potential for success. The manager will be responsible for sourcing, negotiating and closing deals. This hire will also manage implementation of deals.
Successful candidates must understand Etsy's growth strategy and how a potential deal supports that strategy. We will focus on work that moves the needle, drives revenue and improves the experience and success of our members.
About the Business Development Team
We also seek partnerships with seller tools providers to help Etsy sellers manage their businesses. As a whole, Etsy, business development encompasses strategic planning, partner relationship development, and, from time-to-time, M&A execution. This hire will participate in all three phases.
All candidates should have extensive previous business development and/or strategy experience. You must be conversant in the Internet space, most preferably in a consumer marketplace context. You should have experience negotiating legal contracts in the technology industry. You should have a view on whether CPM, CPC or CPA makes the most sense for a customer acquisition deal. The position will hit the ground running and there will be little guidance after a short getting up to speed period. Candidates will maximize probability of an offer by demonstrating a voracious appetite for creating new businesses.
At Etsy, we look for knowledge of the DIY/small business space and a thorough respect for the values that power the Etsy community. If you are a maker or an entrepreneur, all the better. If not, it is not a deal breaker. Clearly, you must have all the standard MBA skills that are not worth listing here. An MBA from a top school is nice, but, in the absence of Internet business experience, does not in any way qualify you for this role. We will put special value on candidates with a CS degree and/or significant engineering/product experience. Above all else, demonstrate that you are a strategic thinker who knows people and companies.
Etsy is the marketplace we make together. We enable people anywhere to easily build and directly exchange with independent, creative businesses. Our mission is to craft the new economy where self-sufficiency, durability, and well-being are the key measures of success.
? We are a mindful, transparent, and humane business.
? We plan and build for the long term.
? We value craftsmanship in all we make.
? We believe fun should be part of everything we do.
? We keep it real, always.
Our growing community includes 12 million members in over 150 countries. The 800,000 shops on Etsy collectively contain around 11 million unique products, and in 2011 our community sold over $400 million of goods. Etsy operates transparently and you can check in to see how the Etsy community is doing in our monthly weather reports. We're well-funded with a proven business model and established revenue to help us continue growing and serving our community.
