You, our future Director of Client Development, will play a vital role in helping Knucklepuck target aggressive revenue growth over the next 3 years. You are motivated, highly engaged and not afraid of a challenge, which in this case is to bring in as many qualified leads as possible.

We have invested considerable efforts in fine-tuning our internal operations to maximize our capacity for new projects. We’re at an inflection point in our business and we need a Director of Client Development to help us reach the next level!
Knucklepuck’s founder & CEO and our Director of Web Services are waiting in the wings to help you convert leads to close. We designed your commission structure to motivate everyone to share in the success of the business.

Our Commitment to Diversity of Thought
As part of our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, we welcome all applicants, regardless of race, age, color, religion, national origin, sex, ability, or gender identity. We encourage Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) as well as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ+) to apply.
We want to meet our military veterans and full-time parents looking to re-enter the workforce. We welcome those with public and private sector backgrounds. We have no roles at Knucklepuck that require a college degree.
We are privileged to work in an industry that requires no formal education and we feel compelled to use our position as a growing company to provide opportunities for under-represented groups.
Resumes Not Accepted
When you apply, we only have one rule: no resumes or cover letters. We know how time consuming these are to put together (and how time consuming they are to review). We also recognize that higher education institutions train their students how to write resumes to present an overly favorable impression of a person’s skills. This gives an unfair advantage to those who attended college or were fortunate enough to pursue professional development over providing for themselves or their family.
We believe it is most important to evaluate how you will contribute as our Director of Client Development. Our application process is precisely tailored with questions that give you an opportunity to tell us (in your own words) how you will contribute in this role.
Everyone has life experience that informs your worldview and we strive to eliminate factors that could trigger bias based on location, education, race, gender, and personal life circumstances.
We evaluate candidates based on your ability to do the job we’re hiring for, not the jobs you had before. Our interview process is designed for you to show us why you are the right fit for Knucklepuck and how your skills will help us achieve our goals.
