Personal Competencies:

  • Federal Government Experience: Experience working with the federal government is critical to success, and the more experience the better. Understanding the BD cycle is critical, while experience overseeing the operations/execution of federal contracts is also going to be very helpful. We consider a security clearance, PMP certification, advanced degrees and other certifications to be valuable assets.
  • Specialization: The federal government marketplace is very broad, and we have the flexibility to leverage our past performance to build verticals or practice areas in many ways. We want you to have at least one area of specialization in IT (e.g., specific agency, technology, or functional area) that will provide focus to a portion of your BD efforts.
  • Proactive Self-Starter: We are looking for you to lead BD activities in line with our strategy, and own opportunities from start to finish. We want you to be a leader and a doer. We want you to leverage your experience in the federal contractor space and focus on the highest-potential activities. You are someone who is always busy, efficient and productive.
  • Team-First Mentality: We want you to have a desire and enthusiasm for working with the rest of the SNG BD team. While BD success is in-part defined by meeting individual targets, we want you to proactively support other opportunities lead by other BD team members when it is in the team’s best interests to do so. While individual targets are important, we value individuals that care more about the ultimate success of the collective team.
  • Growth Mindset: We are looking for someone who enjoys the process of getting better, as an individual and a member of teams. We want you to seek out the feedback that improves your ability to learn from experiences and grow as a professional.
  • Kind, Humble, and Fun: We want you to be a person we enjoy collaborating with, spending time with, and investing in. You may be this person if you already invest heavily in those you work with, and if you consistently receive the feedback that you are a great colleague and teammate. A great sign is if people go out of their way to work with you, no matter the situation.
