Job Description

The Connected Partner Network is a curated marketplace of partners within an open ecosystem who provide mutual clients complementary data sets and services.

Additional partner types, new client wallets, new use cases within existing partners.)

  • Complete ownership and accountability to agreed performance standards (measurable results = revenue generated from new partner and increase in revenue generated per partner)

  • Facilitate partner onboarding, including but not limited to: Data needs identification, data orders, and ongoing communication

  • Conduct regular partner performance reviews to determine how the partner is succeeding, ensuring that our data is being used properly and the revenue share is being paid properly

Role Requirements

  • Work independently, with an entrepreneurial and growth mindset while also effectively working as a part of a team

  • Utilize CRM to build pipeline and successfully manage revenue opportunities 

Background and Technical Skills
