Job Description

New datasets are being created every day and investors need to incorporate them to remain competitive.

YipitData is the go-to, 170+ person data team for hundreds of the largest institutional investors and corporations in the world. We identify, screen, license, clean, and analyze alternative data to help clients answer their key questions. 

We have amazing reviews (and a 5-star rating!) on Glassdoor and are one of Inc’s Best Workplaces - a fast-growing technology company based in NYC, backed by Norwest Venture Partners and with a strong culture focused on mastery, ownership, and purpose.

About The Role:

We are hiring a Strategic Partnerships Manager to work with our Strategic Partnerships Associate and VP of Partnerships to execute complex partnerships and acquire data assets that will meaningfully expand YipitData’s product portfolio and accelerate growth.

You can sit in NYC (where our headquarter is located), or Austin, TX.

YipitData’s product portfolio is underpinned by a growing set of exciting data partnerships. Each new data partnership enables new products to be developed and unlocks new opportunities for growth. This is a unique opportunity for you to work directly with executive management on growth-oriented initiatives.

As our newest Strategic Partnerships Manager you will:

  • Identify companies with high-value data assets
  • Cultivate c-suite and leadership level relationships with prospective partners
  • Learn how to spearhead, negotiate, and execute complex enterprise-level partnerships
  • Work cross-functionally and collaborate with key partners, including legal and compliance, product, engineering, and executive management

In this role, you’ll gain experience in:

  • Business development and strategy: You will expand YipitData’s business through identifying companies with interesting and valuable data assets 
  • Deal Execution: You will own the entire process of executing complex enterprise-level deals, including: research, structuring, data review, business plan development, and contract negotiation / execution
  • Product development: You will learn what it takes to build products and will learn to quickly evaluate deals and develop business cases to support each investment we make
  • Relationship building: You will own and nurture relationships with existing partners managing renewals and opportunities for expansion
  • Alternative data landscape: You will build expertise in a fast growing sector of the data industry and will become an expert on key players and datasets available to hedge funds

You Are Likely To Succeed If:

  • You have a minimum of 4 years relevant work experience
  • You have prior experience executing complex deals
  • You are passionate about contributing to the future of data-driven investment research
  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit and strong sense of ownership
  • You thrive in fast-paced, dynamic environments
  • You have sound judgment when handling new situations
  • You are resourceful and excited to learn
  • You are a relentless executer who is meticulous about details, and are comfortable working under tight timelines
  • You are comfortable building relationships with senior team members and presenting to executive level management
  • You are an excellent and supportive teammate - ability to work cross-functionally with multiple stakeholders

It is a Bonus If:

  • You have prior experience sourcing data partnerships at an asset manager, equity research institution, or data-driven company

What We Offer:

  • This position can be based in our New York City office or in Austin, Texas
  • Our compensation package includes equity and highly competitive salary & performance based bonuses 
  • We care about your personal life and we mean it.  We offer flexible work hours, unlimited vacation, a generous 401K match, parental leave, team events, wellness budget, learning reimbursement, and more!
  • Your growth at YipitData is determined by the impact that you are making, not by tenure, unnecessary facetime, or office politics.  Everyone at YipitData is empowered to learn, self-improve, and master their skills in an environment focused on ownership, respect, and trust.
