Position Description

Valiant Solutions is seeking a Federal Business Developer to join our highly growing and respected team!

This role will be crucial to our growth and development, ensuring we can accurately describe Valiant’s differentials in the way we do business and the technical expertise we provide.


The ideal candidate is organized, accountable, and demonstrates responsibility for meeting deadlines and following through on commitments. All members of our Valiant team are expected to be self-starters who possess excellent oral and written communication skills, develop creative solutions to tackle challenges, are team players ready to support each other, and have a vested interest in the success of Valiant. Each day will present different opportunities as you help support Valiant’s growth and success.


Valiant’s focus is Cybersecurity; however, we have been expanding into other areas of IT for the past several years and will continue to do so. We:


  • Are a large, small HUBZone business with a runway on many contract vehicles anticipating outgrowing small business status in the coming years
  • Multiple corporate certifications including CMMI Level 3; ISO 9001, 20000, 27001 & Top Secret FCL
  • Multiple Prime contracts, including a $90M Cyber with Exceptional CPARS across both Prime and Subcontract 
  • Have access to many GWACs for easier access to Valiant (list is here) 
  • Strong Proposal team to help develop winning proposals
  • Great Commission Plan and no limitation of upside
  • Take pride in doing business the right way and have a proven reputation for doing so
  • Truly believe that our team is our greatest asset, and we treat them that way with great benefits, financially rewarding superior performance, and avoiding the pitfalls of winning LPTA-type contracts  


As a Business Developer, you will:

  • Work with various corporate team members in the Business Development, Proposal, Operations, and Recruiting teams.
  • Respond to RFIs and act as proposal lead for small opportunities seeing them through to submission 
  • Lead and participate in internal projects like customer profiles, reusable content library, and various longer-term research projects. 
  • Self-generation of leads via networking, cold-calling, referrals, marketing, networking, and events
  • Understand the needs (via asking lots of questions) of, and make impactful presentations to sales prospects
  • Help the organization win- 
  • Wear multiple hats; being a small team you will be pulled in different directions to help the organization grow.

You’ll Bring These Traits and Experiences: 

  • Minimum of 1 year of professional experience working with a federal government contractor
  • Hunter: We want someone confident in contacting CISOs and other federal decision-makers to set up meetings with our technical team
  • Personal Drive: We want someone with a strong work ethic and the ability to "push" themselves. Management will help you achieve your greatness, but that personal drive to close deals and outperform must come from within.  Success in this area will result in higher commission/bonuses
  • Timely Results (Each Quarter): This job demands hitting sales objectives. We will work hard to give you everything you need to succeed, but we need people who can deliver objectives on a deadline.
  • Good Listener: The ability to uncover and understand prospective customers’ business objectives and create the most appropriate solution based on their needs.
  • Opportunistic: The creativity and awareness to find new opportunities and the drive and commitment to close them.
  • Mental Toughness: Hearing the word "no" fuels you to do better. You get ten no's and are excited to look at why you are getting no's, then work even harder to get a yes the 11th time.
  • You Love People, and Love Meeting NEW People: We love our customers – service with a smile goes a long way. We love our team - cultural fit matters. And, related to this job, we love finding new people to buy our products and services (because we love reaching more people in need AND staying in business!).
  • Team Player, with Discipline: You are not the type who says “that’s not my job." You want the whole team to succeed, yet you have the discipline to operate effectively and efficiently in a collaborative environment and stay focused on achieving your sales objective.
