Manager, Business Development & Marketing

Remote Full TimeOakland, CA, United States (Remote)Kalamuna

You’ll use your knowledge of the nonprofit, educational, and government institutional worlds to hunt for and keep the pipeline flowing with mission-driven organizations in need of digital transformation. Mostly that involves web design and development, but also a dose of digital therapy. If people like you, trust you, and want to work with you — we probably will too. If you’re strictly focused on metrics, commission, or the ABCs of sales, we probably won’t make a good fit.

Kalamuna is a mature, 30-person agency with operations and clients in the US and Canadian markets. You’ll work closely with and report to the CEO, and share the sandbox with members of the accounts, and delivery teams. You’ll also manage 2-3 sales and marketing employees and contractors that are working to prospect opportunities, craft proposals, generate collateral, and run campaigns.

While sales and marketing are different but related disciplines, as a team, and with your help, we will play to each others’ strengths to achieve a comprehensive program. This role is focused on communication, and your ability to speak and write persuasively is paramount to your success.

Candidates for this full-time (40h/wk) remote position must reside in the US or Canada. If you’re a recruiter or agency, please don’t contact us.
