About the role

Spruce is hiring a business development leader for decentralized identity use cases for the public sector and institutions. We believe that public servants also want a user-controlled internet, and we can work with them to make it possible. In the near term, this role will run both business development and internal project management for these engagements. Longer-term, this role will direct project management and shift focus towards business development and growth. The ideal candidate is autonomous, has a strong sense of ownership, and thrives in a high-responsibility environment. They should have a strong interest and demonstrated history at the intersection of public sector, digital identity, and cutting-edge technologies.

Not 100% sure you're a fit? Apply anyway! We look for potential more than anything else, and we expect that you will grow with us to take your career to new heights. We prefer candidates who are passionate about what we are building, avid learners, and have high standards for themselves over those who just check all the boxes or come from a certain pedigree.

Responsibilities

  • Develop strong trust and relationships with external consultants, contracting partners, and various government and institutional stakeholders.
  • Act as strategic and tactical project manager for Credible pilots and contracts; collaborate with directors on RFP/RFO responses.
  • Grow the Credible brand through a consultative approach to business development.
  • Gain strong working knowledge of Spruce technical capabilities in order to spot and speak to nascent use cases.

Qualifications

  • Outstanding relationship building skills, communication skills, and judgment. Strong ability to “read the room” is critical.
  • 4 years of public sector experience, working at the U.S. state or federal levels on technical programs, either directly within a government body or as an external consultant with direct stakeholder engagement.
  • Ability to interact with high-level external stakeholders while also quickly gaining familiarity with technical project details and their business impact.
  • 2 years project management experience.
  • Drive. This division will be a reflection of the individual in this role. The ideal candidate will thrive on the challenges and opportunities available in this high-growth opportunity.
  • Familiarity with handling requirements for high-assurance environments, including but not limited to SOC 2, ISO 27001, and FedRAMP.

We are passionate about cultivating a thriving culture of diverse individuals who bring unique perspectives to our mission. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.

Why you should join Spruce Systems, Inc.

Spruce lets users control their data across the web. We believe that the world is evolving toward one based on cryptography, networks, and digital economies that are user-controlled. Today, the dominant use case for user keys is the signing of blockchain transactions, but we think this barely scratches the surface of what is possible. Soon, the entirety of a user’s digital interactions will be based on their keypairs, and we’re unlocking this transition with our constellation of products.
