Vimeo and Livestream have a quickly growing line of consumer and professional video hardware products. From the consumer-marketed Mevo (https://getmevo.com/) to our professional line of switchers and encoders (https://livestream.com/studio), we’re looking to bring on a Director of Business Development, Hardware, to drive partnerships across both lines of business.

Develop and execute on a partnership strategy across Vimeo/Livestream’s hardware suite
Analyze the existing livestreaming hardware marketplace, identifying short and long-term partnership opportunities
Build strong relationships with key decision makers in a variety of well-known partner industries as well as researching new partner areas
Communicate regularly with executive-level stakeholders on the health and development of the BD pipeline
Work cross functionally with internal teams to identify, nurture, and close the biggest-impact partnership opportunities
Frequent travel (30-40%) to meet with potential and existing hardware partners, and quarterly travel to Vimeo’s HQ in NYC if living outside the NY metro area
Skills and knowledge you should possess:
7+ years of experience in a business development or sales capacity, specifically within the consumer and/or pro electronics space
Demonstrated track record of successful strategic partner development and management
Ability to work independently and across teams
Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
Self-starter with demonstrated ability to creatively and efficiently solve problems
Passion for research, and drive to become a subject matter expert in Vimeo’s offerings
