 What We're Looking For 

 CareerArc is looking for a talented Proposal Manager to support our global sales initiatives by leveraging strategic instincts, solutions knowledge and project management to both create and manage the timely submission of well-positioned sales bids/requests for proposals (RFPs).

 As a core part of the CareerArc go to market team, you’ll work cross-functionally with subject matter experts and leadership to create – and ultimately own – a scalable Request for Proposal (RFP) submission process that supports our Career Transition Services business unit. This is a highly visible position that will play an instrumental role in helping the company achieve its growth targets.

Applicants typically possess the following attributes:

  • Hyper organized with excellent grammar, spelling and communication skills (both written and verbal)
  • Natural curiosity and a desire to become an expert on all functional and technical aspects of our outplacement product 
  • Adaptable, self-motivated, naturally curious and coachable with a strong work ethic
  • Highly analytical and solutions-oriented with a desire to answer complex – and sometimes ambiguous – questions with a business acumen and product knowledge
  • Comfort in operating in a fast-paced startup culture

 CareerArc offers a competitive compensation and benefits package, as well as growth opportunities for high performers. 

 What You'll Be Doing

  • Own complete Request for Proposal (RFP) development process
  • Be a project manager that’s responsible for writing, editing, coordination and ultimately submitting approved bids/proposals in a timely fashion
  • Create strategic, client-focused proposals by implementing project timelines, conducting meetings with relevant stakeholders and driving proposal submissions to a successful completion
  • Forge relationships with appropriate stakeholders to build and continually refresh our content library that supports RFP submissions 
  • Create templates, resources and processes designed to win RFPs with content that’s consistent with our value prop
  • Multi-tasking and completing projects in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment


  • 5+ years experience as the primary owner of proposal/bid creation efforts – preferably in a SaaS environment or in the HR space
  • Outstanding writing and editing experience coupled with excellent communication skills 
  • Able to grasp and articulate complex and technical concepts in a clear way
  • Highly organized & commitment to hitting deadlines in a detailed oriented manner 
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience
