Job Description


The Role

We are looking for a Director of Business Development here in New York to join our growing Craft Translation business. This person will be developing our business around the globe with the help of a small but dynamic sales team. This is a high impact and high visibility opportunity to help build and scale a crucial business unit within a fast growing agency.


We are in need of a true "hunter" in every sense of the word. The brand-side of our industry is an untapped market with enormous potential we will look to you to capture. 



The Team

The Craft Translation team (a McCann business) offers a full range of language services, including both transcreation of marketing copy by in-country copywriters and traditional and technical translation. Our team has vast experience working with Fortune 500 clients and manages a team of over 2,000 in-market linguists covering all major world languages and dialects.



What you will do...

  • Lead business development efforts in an effort to build a robust pipeline of sales opportunities within middle market and top-tier global companies
  • Leverage our internal subject matter experts with potential clients to position Craft as a industry leader in the translation and transcreation space
  • Create and maintain relationships with prospective clients and assist them through the translation purchase decision lifecycle
  • Be a master presenter when rolling out our newest product offerings to further showcase our capabilities to new and existing clients


Who you will be...  

  • 10+ years with an excellent track record of selling translation solution to Fortune 1000 clients
  • A hunter with experience developing business in underserved markets
  • Creative and an out-of-the-box thinker who can bring new and fresh ideas to the table
  • Proven ability to build relationships and trust with executives at the highest level of large organizations
  • Foreign language skill is a plus but not required
