Jr. Business Development Representative – Chicago

The Partnerships team at Dynamic Signal connects both marketing and sales and is a critical driver of growth at one of Silicon Valley’s 100 fastest growing SaaS companies. As a member of the team, you’ll be surrounded by a powerhouse of talent that is interested in investing in you and helping you grow your skillset and career path from Day One. Our senior, experienced partnerships team repeatedly continues to be one of the top drivers of new revenue and has been recognized as one of the best in our industry by many of the most well-regarded marketing communications agencies and tech companies.
