Strategy designer with a commercial mindset

We’re looking for the rebel, the person who can close the deal & has a local network within corporate organizations at C-level in San Francisco or New York

We are looking for a game changer with a commercial mindset

You have always done things a bit different, with a clear goal in mind. You love to create impact, but only when this leads to results. You want to help clients and are able to really understand their needs. You reflect, learn, close deals and have fun in everything you do. And, you’ve been having professional fun (and work experience, for at least 10 years, to back it up).

Take a look at Michiels profile to see who we are looking for.

You make it happen!

You love working with a cool team of people and making “it” happen for your clients – especially when it comes to strategy and innovation. You love working with big organizations and you always aim to help them future proof themselves. At your core you believe that magic can be made when you pair kick ass business model options with incredible technologies and human-centered designs. At the same time you’re always the one who challenges your clients (and friends, family, colleagues etc.) to validate their assumptions and prototype their ideas before falling in love with them. Most of all, you do not believe in huge business plans and jargon-filled reports.

You know you only have one chance to do it right, so you need to give it your best and be very well prepared.

You simply love designing better businesses.

You are the commercial rebel

We’re looking for the rebel, the person who can close the deal, has a local network within corporate organizations at C-level, a commercial mindset, the need to do best for your clients, the strategic smart ass and at least 10 years of working experience preferably with commercial experience as well. You’re based in San Francisco or New York.

But most important we are looking for: YOU.
