Make an impact-focused career choice while helping us grow our purpose-driven digital agency.

We’re looking for a Director of Growth & Impact to join our team. For Certified B Corps like Mightybytes, growth and impact are interwoven. In a traditional company, this would be a sales role. However, this position combines traditional sales tactics with an impact-focused approach to helping our stakeholders make a measurable difference in the world. 

This is a virtual, full-time position with base salary plus commission and a full benefits package. Chicago area candidates are preferred. Some travel may be required. Sorry, no phone calls or placement agency solicitations accepted.

Core Purpose

As a key member of our team, you will improve the company’s positive social and environmental impact by forging new relationships within the impact sector and supporting existing clients. 

Your primary responsibilities will be to help us:

  1. Drive Growth: Increase the number of impact-focused projects Mightybytes closes.
  2. Measure Impact: Analyze and communicate how our efforts contribute to overall positive social and environmental impact.

Drive Growth

You will collaborate with our team to identify organizations and opportunities that help our mission-driven clients tell compelling stories and amplify their impact while propelling our own mission forward:

  • Improve Our Pipeline: Increase the number of prospective clients entering our sales/marketing funnel through various channels.
  • Lead Nurturing: Build ongoing relationships that help us create shared value over time.
  • Proposal Creation: Work with our team to craft exceptional solutions to client problems and communicate those clearly in proposals.
  • Close Business: We achieve our company mission by converting prospects and warm leads into paying clients with impact-focused projects. 

Measure Impact

Mightybytes employs impact business models to better serve our stakeholders with ethical, responsible and more sustainable digital solutions. Here’s how you can help us measure the impact we create for these stakeholders:

  • Data Strategy: Identify which metrics make most sense to track and help us craft successful benchmarking strategies.
  • Risk & Resilience Analysis: Help us better understand where potential risks to shared prosperity and resilience lie.
  • Benchmarking: Measure progress over time and identify methods for continuous learning and improvement.

Skills & Strengths

You’ll do really well in this role if you possess the following qualities:

  • Mission-Focused: You want to create positive social and environmental change and collaborate with a like-minded team.
  • Clear Communicator: You are skilled at conveying technical information in clear and concise ways that non-technical audiences can easily understand.
  • Well-Connected: You have an established network or are eager to build one within the impact sector.
  • Friendly & Collaborative: You enjoy interacting with people to engender trust and build community. You also value good collaboration and continuous learning, which are at the heart of everything Mightybytes does.
  • Consistent: You can show month-to-month results and provide a consistent experience for new and existing customers.

These qualities will also help you find success faster:

  • Agency Experience: Experience selling consulting services and digital agency projects in a competitive environment will be very useful.
  • B Corp Knowledge: You don’t need to be a B Corp guru. However, knowing what Certified B Corps are and how they contribute to a broader, stakeholder-driven economy will help you greatly.
  • Digital Acumen: a proven track record showing that you understand how design and technology can be ethically applied to real-world problems.

Position Logistics
