We like to do work that has a positive impact on society, and many of our projects have a social-good aspect to them.

Flexible and remote working

From the very beginning, we established effective remote-working practices. It provides a better work-life balance and gives our people more autonomy. It opens up opportunities for people who otherwise would not be able to work with us and helps us do our bit in preserving the environment.

The role

Our business thrives from quality relationships we build with our clients. We need an Account-Based Marketing Manager to develop and manage these relationships to generate demand - from pre-awareness to sales-qualified leads.

  • Initiate and execute lead generation campaigns to generate short to medium-term sales-qualified leads (at least up to proposal stage).
  • Create an account-based marketing strategy and implement ABM activities to generate new business.
  • Together with the Content Marketing Manager plan a schedule of events to enable lead generation activities.
  • Work with the Content Marketing Manager to create content that supports lead generation campaigns.
  • Build, manage and analyse the contact database for opportunities.

  • Managing bids and proposals.
  • Organising events.
  • Outbound tactics including phone-calling (when appropriate).

As a Bit Zesty team member, you should also be:

  • Committed to quality - whether it is award-winning designs, robust code or well-written email, we never cut corners.
