We’re hiring! Looking for a Business Development Associate

Were looking for a new penguin to join our team!

This year has been quite a ride for us at PICnet, especially with strong pickup in the community of our Non-Profit Soapbox services.  After hiring a new project manager (great to have you aboard, Alex!), we’re continuing our recession-busting expansion.  We’re looking to keep pace with the project inquiries coming in to us on a daily basis, and we could certainly use another set of hands and a sharp mind to keep pace with the proposal writing needed.

Needless to say, we need more hands on deck!  So, we’re hiring for our new Business Development Associate position.

At PICnet, our high-touch, high-quality service starts with business development professionals that understands the non-profit sector and spends more time listening and asking questions than speaking.  The individual who takes this position will be joining a dedicated and motivated team that seeks to offer the very best experience for our non-profit and socially responsible business clients as they leverage their web presence to fulfill their missions.


  • Executing on the company’s business development strategy, and providing new insight
  • Working with our team to update and produce relevant sales materials
  • Researching and developing a list of leads, including: non-profits, foundations, socially responsible businesses, CSR divisions of Fortune 500 companies
  • Finding appropriate decision-makers within organizations
  • Closing deals with new clients
  • Building network of partners to increase sales channels

Skills and Experience

  • Minimum of entry-level business development experience
  • Understanding of Web technology services
  • Strong connections in the non-profit or socially responsible business sectors
  • Experience using CRM tools to track sales is preferred

The right applicant will not only have the basic business development qualifications, but will truly enjoy working for the non-profit and socially responsible business sectors. You’ve got to have heart. You’ve got to be passionate about public service and the social sector.


This position is available only as a full-time position, working inside either our Washington, DC or San Francisco office.


Compensation for this position will be on a strong commission structure.
