The opportunity

The role

Kin + Carta is looking for a new Client Engagement Leader  to source, cultivate, and close new business for Kin + Carta.  

Our culture is one that fosters innovation and creative thinking without the bindings that are typically introduced with large organizations.  The people we are looking for in this position are no exception.

Activities involve pipeline development, lead qualification, customer meetings, proposal development, negotiations, and closing.

You are a trailblazer. You create opportunities for others. You are gritty and never give up. You never let things fall through the cracks.  You can bridge the big picture with the intricacies of execution.  You can hold an executive conversation with confidence.  You have a passion for exploring, “What’s next?” and are highly motivated, productive and organized.  You have the ability to build trust and rapport with stakeholders and connect the dots for the right support and craft a story to win.
