Proposal Writer in Anchorage, AK

You know how to interpret government RFPs and organize proposal teams to get a responsive proposal submitted on time. Tight deadlines and vague requirements don’t scare you, but every proposal is starting to look the same. You’d like to learn some new skills, explore new industries, and make a tangible contribution to your company’s growth and process—all while working in a casual environment with a team that truly appreciates work/life balance.

If this sounds like you, it’s time to consider writing proposals with Resource Data. Let’s look at what a career here might be like. Three months in to your new position:

  • You’re learning all about Resource Data—the history, projects, people, and processes—while collaborating with other Proposal Writers and SMEs to write proposals.
  • You’re meeting employees in all of our offices as you coordinate with writers and SMEs to get proposals out the door.
  • You’re creating compliance matrixes and proposal management plans for proposals you’re assigned to. You’re ensuring our work is responsive, with strong discriminators and proof points.
  • You’ve settled into a routine with the Proposal Team as you learn about internal systems, the typical proposal workload, and current processes. Along the way you’re making notes about areas for improvement.
  • You’re coming up to speed on brand-new industries and you’re excited to learn more.

Fast-forward to one year with Resource Data:

  • You have a solid understanding of the software development lifecycle and Resource Data’s capabilities. It is hard to believe that just a year ago you hadn’t heard of a database schema or an ETL process. You’re now confident working with SMEs to produce technical material for Resource Data proposals.
  • You’ve gained the trust and respect of the branch managers with your strong organizational skills and ability to deliver. You are taking the lead on some of the more critical proposal efforts for the company.
  • You’ve introduced several best practices to the proposal team, helping improve the quality of the discriminators and proof points in all proposals.
  • You’re an integral part of the proposal team. You’ve developed effective and rewarding relationships with many of your coworkers.

You may wonder: Am I qualified? What if I don’t know anything about software development or GIS? At Resource Data, we’re more interested in what you’ve done than what skills you have. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are a must, as is some demonstrated experience following industry-standard best practices in proposal management. But professional certifications and familiarity with IT or GIS projects are not necessary. As a top performer, you can learn the technical aspects you need on the job.

Intrigued? Send your resume and a quick description of two notable proposal-like efforts you’ve led. Each description should each be a paragraph or two in length and demonstrate your ability to work effectively with stakeholders and SMEs to produce responsive, persuasive content.
