About Us:

SITU was founded in 2005, in Brooklyn, New York, by four friends studying architecture at the Cooper Union. We’ve shaped our
practice out of the multi-disciplinary style of our education, and have grown through clients who value a progressive approach to
problem-solving. We now employ a staff of 35+ people.

Our process is client-specific, adaptive and driven by a diversity of deep knowledge, untethered from any stylistic or formal agenda.
This allows us to work out of bounds, using new tools of architecture to generate unique outcomes.

Our practice is composed of three divisions—Studio, Research, and Fabrication—that work collaboratively while providing individual
services. This keeps prototyping, research and development, and hands-on craft elemental to our creative process.

We are seeking a full-time Business Development Associate (BD Associate) to join our team starting June, 2021. The BD Associate will
work closely with the Business Development Managers of our Studio and Fabrication divisions on wide-ranging initiatives aimed at
securing new work and long-term growth. By identifying strategic opportunities and potential partners, the BD Associate performs a
vital role in developing a robust pipeline of new projects which allows our multidisciplinary firm to thrive.

Day-to-day, the person in this role will focus on client outreach and potential project opportunities. In addition to lead generation and
streamlining our channels for handling inquiries and proposals, they will support the Business Development Managers in client
relations and external events. On an ongoing basis, this person will also conduct periodic market research and analysis to support the
development and execution of business strategies as well as targeted marketing campaigns.

As part of a dynamic marketing team, every role in marketing and business development requires flexibility and collaboration in order
to achieve both larger goals that are shared firm-wide and targeted objectives that are specific to each division.
We offer great benefits, reasonable working hours, and the opportunity to support creative, thoughtful projects in a studio/shop
environment. Benefits include health (including two fully paid options), dental, and vision insurance, life and long term disability
insurance, company holidays, two weeks paid vacation, pregnancy/parental leave and subsidized CitiBike memberships.

About You:

We imagine you might be a process-oriented person who is balanced by a broad and genuine interest in other people. You have
probably been working in a marketing- or business-related field for a year or two, and you want to apply the same kind of strategic- or
systems-based thinking to new challenges at an innovative company.
Your experiences have equipped you with a solid understanding of data-based workflows (like spreadsheets and CRM’s) and the
ability to take on detailed challenges without losing sight of larger goals. You can leverage these skills to develop nuanced contact
lists, reach strategic partners, identify key stakeholders or cultivation targets, and balance wide-ranging responsibilities to meet
ambitious deadlines. You are probably great with organization and can easily give structure to evolving workflows.
At your core, you are passionate about people and excited by design. As someone who is keen on producing their best work, you
understand that open communication—both internally and externally—is key to achieving that goal.
