Open Positions

Director of Sales & Marketing

Close leads like a champ, champion social causes.

What You'll Do

With your zeal for both, you’ll use your knowledge of the nonprofit, government and institutional worlds to hunt for and keep the pipeline flowing with mission-driven organizations in need of web design + development work. 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. You’ll report to the CEO, but you’ll also need to share the sandbox with members of the sales, tech and design teams — they’ve got the SME to make your RFPs A-OK. We’re also open to other acronyms.

Responsibilities:

  • Act as a first point of contact for new business
  • Help set and meet sales targets
  • Understand and advance Kalamuna's market position
  • Monitor competitor offerings and marketing activities.
  • Ensure marketing efforts deliver against sales and brand objectives
  • Keeping the CRM up-to-date with deals, contacts and interactions
  • Maintaining the sales pipeline, and reporting its overall health to leadership
  • Represent the company in the community and at conferences
  • Lead pitches, proposals, and ultimately take responsibility for the success of the sales funnel
  • Mentor and supervise sales agents

Qualifications

  • Sales management experience in an agency context
  • You are an exceptional communicator who uses empathy, nuance and polish to connect with different personalities
  • Can maintain successful client relationships and deliver strategic creative and technical ideas for a digital agency
  • Ability to translate brand needs into marketing strategies and business objectives
  • Can think strategically and act quickly, no matter how full your plate
  • You have a holistic understanding of digital design, architecture, development, and support
  • Understand the value of social media and content marketing
  • Experience with agency contracting vehicles like SOWs and MSAs

Drupal Developer

What You'll Do

You'll be working on a mix of interesting projects for worthy organizations, and be counted upon to solve problems in code, and work in a team context using agile methodologies.

Qualifications

  • Excellent communication skills. Not only do we like talking, you’ll also be (shock!) speaking with our wonderful clients.
  • Mastery of web fundamentals. You must know how to bend the internet to your will using our basic tech (HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, git). Please give us work samples (projects, code, URLs) so we can admire your masterpieces.
  • Deep expertise with the Drupal API and module development. You don’t need to memorize the Forms API, but knowing the structure of Drupal code, being able to use these conventions to create code other Drupal developers can use, and having the contextual knowledge to jump into (reasonably) well-structured Drupal projects is essential.

You will nurture and grow accounts, seek referrals, and occasions to promote the value of our work to internal stakeholders, the client’s community, and, in collaboration with Marketing, our social network. Ultimately, you will be responsible for predicting, planning, and tracking long-term engagements, so ideally you are also a team player who can pitch in to help where needed.

You’ll work on a mix of interesting support projects for worthy organizations, solve problems in code, and work in a team using agile methodologies.

These tasks can be varied – from fixing a PHP error on a university department site, to training content editors on their new D8 site, to applying Drupal security updates.
