PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

We are committed to the professional development of all Fraym employees. In addition to trainings, conferences, and connections to an elite network, we offer a Continent Immersion Program (CIP). CIP is a company sponsored trip to Africa that allows employees to immerse themselves in the markets, cultures, and geographies we serve.

OPEN POSITIONS

If the intersection of data science, business, and international affairs sounds like the place for you, let us know why. We’re looking for talented folks to join our expanding team.

Business Development Lead: Government - McLean, VA

Fraym uses powerful technology to produce comprehensive, high-resolution human geography (HG) data for Africa—servicing the national security community, as well as the private sector and global development agencies.

Before Fraym, decision-makers had to rely on anecdotes, “gut feel,” or expensive data collection to make mission-critical decisions. Fraym offers a better way. We weave together household survey data and satellite imagery with proprietary machine learning algorithms. The resulting product is hyper-local population information for communities and populations, spanning every country in Africa.

Fraym’s innovative product is setting a new standard for HG insight in challenging locations. We are looking for a high performer to grow our intelligence and national security business line.

 

Summary of Position

Fraym seeks an established business development manager to help us expand our footprint with the US IC and DoD, as well as related agencies. Specifically, s/he will identify new opportunities, manage proposals, build important industry partnerships, communicate Fraym to government customers, and help shape Fraym’s products to best serve the IC and DoD communities.

 

This person will ultimately ‘own’ Fraym’s efforts to grow revenue and relationships in a high-priority business vertical. With this critical leadership role, s/he will be in a position for significant career impact and growth.

 

Success will be measured primarily by annual revenue goals and pipeline development goals.

 

Responsibilities

  • Work with Fraym leadership to articulate, improve, and execute our broader business strategy for the IC and DoD verticals.
  • Work with the marketing team to refine and carry out our communications strategy for the IC and DoD verticals.
  • Work with the technical team to learn, refine, and improve our product offerings for the IC and DoD communities.

 

 

Qualifications

  • 10+ years of successful business development experience, including specific experience with the US defense and/or intelligence communities.
  • Significant experience with US federal government contracting.
  • Ability to quickly understand and articulate Fraym’s product. Background in statistics, technology, GIS, or data analysis will be particularly helpful.
  • Excellent writing skills (with relevant examples to demonstrate writing quality).
  • Commitment to grow the company and make an outsized impact on the way that the IC and DoD communities obtain and use HG data in challenging contexts.
  • Familiarity with African geography, politics, and security issues. Working experience in Africa a big plus.
  • Active security clearance is a big plus
  • Excellent academic credentials with a relevant Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.
