The opportunity

After successfully launching Rungway into a number of leading global organisations, we are now looking to scale our sales efforts to help more organisations develop their talent and transform their cultures. Rungway’s technology offer is unique and we’ve created a new segment. Our early sales hires need to have the right winning characteristics required to achieve our ambitious growth plan.

The successful Business Development Representative will be employee number 1 for the function with future opportunities to scale and lead the team. You will be responsible for actively seeking out new sales leads and business opportunities through proactive prospecting, networking and utilizing business referrals. In partnership with the Rungway leadership team, you will be working across the C-Suite in some of the biggest companies in the world to identify and create solutions that help our clients succeed. For the right candidate, this is a transformative opportunity to help build a high growth business and your career in the process. You will work closely with our founder, a main board member of a major UK bank and high profile business leader, so this is a real opportunity for unique coaching and career impact for the ambitious candidate.

About Rungway

Rungway is an exciting, new, London based company, headquartered in Farringdon, opening up new ways for people to give and get help in the workplace. Rungway empowers people with a platform to ask questions and voice issues anonymously, and efficiently share their experience with colleagues. Businesses using Rungway can understand and solve problems earlier, and gain unique culture insights. When our clients talk about Rungway, this is what they say:

There is no greater value to me as a manager, friend and colleague, than having the opportunity to truly listen to, and hear, concerns and questions that my co-workers are grappling with. I have learned more via Rungway than I have in nearly any other avenue. It creates a safe, positive, helping community.

Global Managing Partner, Heidrick & Struggles

We launched Rungway following feedback that some of our juniors were not getting the support they needed from their immediate line manager when they needed it. The idea was why be limited to just one manager when you could access advice from hundreds. So much of culture lies under the surface – but Rungway helps bring issues into the open. I highly recommend it.

Managing Director, Head of Culture and Client Marketing, UBS Investment Bank

Culture is a top priority for us. We already use employee surveys and chat systems. Rungway allows individual, anonymous questions, and is very different. It sends a message that whoever you are, whatever your role or location, your voice matters.
