When you join Verizon

Verizon is one of the world’s leading providers of technology and communications services, transforming the way we connect across the globe. We’re a diverse network of people driven by our shared ambition to shape a better future. Here, we have the ability to learn and grow at the speed of technology, and the space to create within every role. Together, we are moving the world forward – and you can too. Dream it. Build it. Do it here.

What you’ll be doing...

We help our Connected Vehicle customers understand how our platform, network, and IoT (Internet of Things) solutions will help their connected vehicle businesses work better, faster, and be more secure-—and help to deliver on the promise of the connected ecosystem. This is where you come in. Your role will be to work with established connected vehicle customers to manage and enhance our current business, drive deeper and broader relationships as well as identify and help to close new connected vehicle opportunities. Our team’s role is to deliver best-in-class service and support, build a strong ecosystem to enhance our customer’s connected vehicle programs as well as cement our position as the market leader, opening the door to grow our business. Working with internal teams including engineering, product, legal, finance and IT, you’ll anticipate critical gaps and future needs and make the right business and technology connections to offer the best integrated solutions. Ultimately, you will build innovative ways for people and businesses to utilize the connected vehicle ecosystem. Your role will require:

  • Understanding the fleet management needs of public and private organizations.

  • Identifying, developing and implementing new business opportunities, solutions, and go-to-market strategies to address market needs.

  • Developing strategic relationships with business partners, like OEMs, to build out our offerings and drive growth.

  • Maintaining internal and external partner alignment and crafting commonalities to support platform and service integration.

  • Planning and forecasting, preparing budgets, identifying metrics, and evaluating performance.

You give “business development” a whole new meaning. Market trends, lead generation, critical thinking, analytical attitude, technical savvy, customer presentations—you do it all with poise, confidence, and style. You bring the widest perspective to issues and think of aspects that others have missed. Revenue goals and business outcomes motivate you, but you’re also attuned to building close relationships with others—a combination that earns you respect and trust alike. A thirst for knowledge means that you’re a constant learner, and keeping up with everything Internet of Things is no problem. You envision the large and complex, but make it easy for others to understand.

What we’re looking for...

  • Bachelor’s degree in business or engineering or related field or four or more years of work experience.

  • Six or more years of relevant work experience (Connected Solutions, IoT, Auto OEM or similar).

  • Experience selling and managing large, complex engagements and projects with multiple partners. Ideally, including c-suite.

  • Experience marketing or selling complex technical solutions.

  • Experience forging partner relationships and agreements.

  • Willingness to travel domestically.

Even better if you have:

  • Master’s degree. Ideally, an MBA.

  • Experience with wireless industry, IoT solutions, M2M technology and OS platforms.

  • Deep knowledge of Auto OEM business models

  • Experience with the connected vehicle ecosystem

  • Executive presence and influence skills.
