Business Development Director

  • Application Deadline: Sept. 23, 2020
  • Stockholm
  • Application Deadline: Sept. 23, 2020
  • Stockholm

Mentimeter’s vision is to transform presentations and meetings into fun and interactive experiences by making it easy to listen and to be heard. We believe in giving everyone a voice, in every meeting and presentation. We are building a modern, friendly, and diverse product-first tech company based in Stockholm and we want you to join us!

We’re currently looking for a Business Development Director to join us and help us develop our product strategy work and make our product and company even more appealing to our 90 million (and growing!) users.

As our Business Development Director you will be responsible for the strategy process and underlying research of the Mentimeter product. This might include decisions and decision material related to:

  • Commercial performance
  • Product roadmap
  • Business models
  • Competitive intelligence
  • Payments strategy
  • Regional commercial strategies
  • Strategic product alliances
  • Tech and services M&A

You should recognise the need to work independently when necessary, but you will always be close to the product organization and the central data team. You will provide analyses, insights and recommendations to both the product leadership and the Mentimeter management team. As our Business Development Director you might also be a line manager and mentor to more junior colleagues.

You would most likely have a background in bridging data insight with business decisions, having taken full responsibility for the whole chain, consisting of:

  • Identifying business opportunities
  • Digging deep into data
  • Including multiple stakeholders
  • Packaging and presenting
  • Driving change
  • Generating results

We estimate that the experience needed for this role would usually be gained over 5-7 years, however, we focus more on the ability to deliver than years previously worked (in the same way we focus on results and not long hours worked at the office). We are still a relatively small company, but we are growing fast - this role is the first of its kind! This means you would also need to have a high degree of self-leadership.

Work with great people

Front-end Developer
"Dog videos vs. Cat videos is the ever ongoing fight of Internet. Soner has clearly picked a side: Doggos. The cuter and hairier the better."
Sales Manager Europe
"All the way from Italian metropolitan via small town of Switzerland to Stockholm to be a part of the Menti-family. It's like it was written in the stars (check the cancer sign)."
Product Manager
"Anna is a Stockholmer and a part of the Mentimeter KTH alumni crew. When she's not innovating at Mentimeter, she's doing jumping jacks on the handball court or partying in the USA."
Head of Brand
"As a kid Carl wanted to be a fashion designer, but ended up doing the next best thing - branding and PR. When he's not at Menti he's touring Sweden with his cover band (apparently they're terrible)."
