A day in the life of a Business Development Manager

This job is only for you if you know how to juggle responsibilities and want to learn a lot in a short time. Our flat organization and open workspace environment should help in getting your creative juices flowing.

I like to think of my days as a Business Developer a continuous learning experience. Most days starts with a good cup of coffee, chatting about soccer (what else? we’re a gaming company at heart) and of course catching up with clients. Targeted account management is a given; every customer receives services tailored to their needs.

Let it be clear that at Venture Spirit no track is ever the same. Offering value begins with a deeper understanding. You learn from past projects, figuring out how industries work, looking at future (& past) trends and searching for current challenges within our client-base (which is exhaustive, check it out!).

Keeping yourself at the forefront of knowledge translates to a healthy cross-over of doing business development, consultancy, and being trained rigorously by the senior partners. You should be able to add value in every conversation. Often you will spend several hours talking to executives, trying to understand their current objectives and match their needs with what we offer: often gamified projects indeed are the answer.

When your relationship with a company progresses, you’ll have to be flexible: you’ll travel, prepare tailored presentations, build a deep intellectual comprehension of the client’s objectives and be able to come up with a full out-of-the-box solution.

As we are a growing company with a start-up-mentality, it goes without saying that often you’ll be asked to step out of your comfort zone: you’ll be asked to reflect on the company’s strategy, prepare marketing materials or support colleagues who are on an intensive project. This job is only for you if you know how to juggle responsibilities and want to learn a lot in a short time. Our flat organization and open workspace environment should help in getting your creative juices flowing.

We’re a friendly bunch who are always open for a good discussion and helping each other out. Except for when we’re beating each other at chess, ping-pong or Mario Kart. We might become just a little bit competitive and rowdy. To us, gaming is serious business.
