WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
The Business Development team at Braze shapes future revenue success every day. It is the team at the forefront of identifying, understanding and helping potential customers build, enhance or transform their customer engagement offering.
Business Development Representatives (BDRs) at Braze grow into skilled commercial players and are trailblazers and action leaders when it comes to:
- Identifying Scale/Mid-Market target accounts
- Developing email and phone campaigns
- Engaging c-suite prospects
- Demonstrating the value of Braze
- Qualifying early stage deals
All BDRs are measured on results in 3 key areas: attainment against quota, operational excellence and personal brand.
BDR is a multi-faceted role, kept fresh and exciting by day-to-day priorities like building account strategies with Account Executives, discovery phone calls with CMOs, meetings with CTO’s, building personalized email sequences and attending events to generate new leads. The ultimate goal is to generate high quality relationships that transform into high quality new business opportunities.
There is a 90 day onboarding period, during which BDRs are coached on everything from the Braze solution, which stakeholders to approach and how to execute personalized emails and calls.
Every individual has a personal quota, and shares a team goal. The team is collaborative, communicative and we are always the first to take action. There’s a lot of support and camaraderie with plenty of room to be proactive and take control of your own sales success. It is one of the most energetic, fun teams at Braze!
BDRs gain huge value from working together at our amazing offices in [London/Austin/Chicago/Singapore.] BDR’s at Braze have a hybrid schedule, which means they will be in office a minimum of 3 days a week. This allows our team to thrive in a learning environment together.
WHAT YOU'LL DO

The BDR will research and strategize on Scale accounts, develop and action a communication plan (via phone, email, LinkedIn, video etc) to generate new business opportunities (pipeline). There are proven processes to follow, several intuitive user friendly tools to use and KPIs to keep momentum up. BDR’s prioritize outreach to prospects: the more relevant stakeholders we can speak with, the more likely we are to be successful in that account.
BDRs will manage their own meetings, and bring in other internal stakeholders as needed.

BDRs also deliver value-orientated pitches and solution demonstrations.
Ultimate success for a BDR is to generate the volume and value of deals required to hit their quota, and bring great new brands to Braze! This is done by meeting outreach KPIs, setting meetings and carrying out great discovery and qualification. The commission plan is uncapped, so once a BDR hits quota, they can keep on earning.
