Job Description


SAIC is looking for a Business Development Sr. Manager to support its Army C5ISR growth. As a Growth company, SAIC requires BD professionals who think differently about business development and proactively shape opportunities through customer relationships well before competitors are aware.

As such, our BD Senior Manager will pro-actively develop and manage a dynamic, multi-year pipeline of opportunities in various stages of maturity. This position reports to SAIC’s Business Development Lead for the IT/C5ISR Operation within the Army Business Unit. The location for this role is the NOVA/DC/Aberdeen Maryland area.  Other locations will be considered for ideal candidate with ability to travel frequently to NOVA/DC/Maryland as needed.

Our BD Senior Manager will work as an integral part of the IT/C5ISR operational portfolio, which includes program oversight, capture management, and solution development. The BD Senior Manager will collaborate closely with the Vice President of C5ISR /Account Lead to create an overall strategy to maximize revenue and profit for the company.

  • Must be a proven self-starter with a high degree of discipline and attention to detail. Be results driven, participating in all aspects of a complete capture that results in the award of programs

  • Highly effective interpersonal skills working with technical leaders and business executives within SAIC, with DoD/Army customers, and with teammates and subcontractors.
  • Provide portfolio of submittals and awards that include experience in all types of government contracts (FFP, T&M, Cost Plus) and full array of capture strategies (major re-competes, incumbent capture, sole source) (Preferred)
  • Be a US Citizen with the ability to obtain a DoD Top Secret Clearance (active TS clearance is highly desirable)
