Business Development Manager 

EOE StatementWe are an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.

Our Business Development Team focuses on helping our clients solve a problem or achieve an outcome, not just selling them a product or service. When done right, we are viewed as a partner, an extension of their sales and marketing team. We seek to understand, work unbelievably hard to learn what is needed, and then are relentless in our pursuit of providing real help.  

Gone are the days of measuring performance by number of dials or phone time. Our approach is rooted in research and learning how trends and forces in the industry are impacting our clients and shaping the outcomes they need to achieve. Once we truly understand their most significant challenges and opportunities we then create the right mix of our products, services, and technical capabilities to help them meet their goals.

If you haven't considered a sales career in the past that's OK. Our team does include people who have made sales their career, our longest tenured employee just started his 38th year with the company! However, we also have business development managers who started as engineers and scientists and decided their real passion was for helping businesses solve their problems. We look for more than just a sales background. We need someone with insatiable curiosity who asks how they can help instead of what can they get. Someone who sees failure as an often inevitable and valuable step on the path to success.

Our business is growing at an incredible rate. Recent investments in our products, services, and technical infrastructure have us well-positioned to achieve real results for our clients. To maximize this growth, we need to add Business Development Managers to our Water and Environment team in Horsham, PA.
