We analyze billions of data points every day to provide accurate, detailed insights on ridesharing, e-commerce marketplaces, payments and more. Our on-demand insights team uses proprietary technology to identify, license, clean and analyze the data many of the world’s largest investment funds and corporations depend on.

We are one of Inc’s Best Workplaces - a fast-growing technology company with offices located in NYC (where we are based in), Hong Kong, and Shanghai, backed by Norwest Venture Partners and The Carlyle Group with a strong culture focused on mastery, ownership, and transparency.

About The Role:

Our Hong-Kong office (launched in 2017) and Shanghai office (launched in 2018) are continuously and fastly growing. We are looking to add an experienced Business Development Manager to our team who will act as a main growth driver to our Asia-Pacific business

As our Business Development Manager, you will be a growth driver by interacting with some of the most sophisticated investors in the Asia-Pacific market and help them better understand the companies in their investment portfolios through our must-have products. You will also build the skills to manage the entire sales process from establishing new contacts to closing deals. Working closely with our Director of Sales, you’ll initially partner together to source and close new opportunities and will be on a path to own the entire process.

  • Finding new and creative ways to engage with institutional investors (i.e. cold calling, networking at industry conferences, requesting referrals, etc.)
  • Effectively communicating the value of our data-driven research products
  • Building the brand awareness of YipitData 
  • Establishing relationships with industry partners for marketing and event opportunities
