Director of Community Engagement and Business Development — Brooklyn, NY

We seek a charismatic individual who brings a genuine passion for accelerating the pace of innovation, entrepreneurism, and STEAM learning within Brooklyn and the greater NYC area, as well as a deep knowledge of the local business and civic communities, and experience closing deals ranging from $50K to $750K/year. Success in this position requires achieving financial goals in the form of sales agreements with supporting partners, membership signups and class registrations.

This position has twin areas of responsibility: (1) Community Engagement and (2) Business Development.

Community Engagement

Business Development
Will develop partnerships with corporations, foundations, and civic and institutional partners for the purpose of gaining financial support for TechShop Brooklyn in the form of commitments for memberships and training services. A partner’s commitment to purchase membership/training packages can be for their own employees or as “scholarships” for deserving communities such as veterans, high school students, minority entrepreneurs, or under- employed individuals seeking experience and skill development.

  • Excellent knowledge of the Brooklyn maker community
  • Extensive network of key influencers
