Business Development Associate

New York, United States

About Foursquare:
Since our inception in 2009, Foursquare has been a leading force in changing how location information enriches our real-world and digital lives. As a location intelligence company, Foursquare is comprised of two well-known consumer apps, Foursquare and Swarm, as well as thriving media and enterprise products. Our B2B offerings include Places (for developers), Pinpoint and Attribution (for marketers), and Place Insights (for analysts, based on the world's largest foot traffic panel). With more than 190 people across our offices in New York, San Francisco, and in sales offices around the globe, we’re dedicated to our trailblazing mission—enriching consumer experiences and informing business decisions with location intelligence.

Foursquare is seeking a self-starting and motivated business development associate to help expand our developer ecosystem and build new ones with a clear focus on commercial enterprises. You will be asked to negotiate and close data and technology-related strategic partnerships; foster close ties, not simply transactions, and become a key member of the Foursquare team. Foursquare’s location intelligence platform is embedded into a growing number of customers, ranging from world class tech brands, mobile apps, and OEMs. These companies are using our places database, our location technologies, and build location solutions into their offerings and to solve large-scale business problems.

Foursquare’s location platform and services allow solo developers and global enterprises alike to build precise geo-context to their native experiences and solve challenging business problems. Foursquare’s well-known consumer apps are built on top of the same powerful location services that are now used by the likes of Samsung, Apple, TenCent, Twitter, Uber, Microsoft, and many others. In this role, you will become an expert in location services and the mobile industry and help the world’s largest consumer tech companies and top brands bring more robust and precise location context into their products.

You will need to deeply understand Foursquare’s burgeoning data business in order to create elegant solutions for a wide variety of partners facing unique challenges. The ideal candidate has experience building and managing a large pipeline of Asia-based tech partners and structuring deals that help grow both our partners’ business and our own. Candidates must have experience in closing large-scale tech deals in Asia with complex terms and long cycle times.     
The Director of Business Development will be based in Singapore and the role will require extensive travel.
