Enterprise Partnerships Manager

Partnerships | New York City

About Empathy:

Empathy is the first customer-centric company built from the ground up to help families deal with the loss of a loved one. In place of the fragmented and sometimes exploitative market dynamic that can characterize the death industry today, we give the consumer everything they need at their own pace, leading with humanity, trust, transparency, and understanding.

Our flagship product is a digital loss companion that accompanies families through every aspect of a loved one’s death, from funeral planning and estate settling to dealing with grief, mortality, and family. Partnering with families to bring empathy and transparency to every aspect of this difficult time in their lives, we’re on a mission to change the way the world copes with loss.

The Partnerships team:

We are a mission-driven, supportive group that knows building something new is one of the most rewarding experiences in life. We love lateral thinking and celebrate curiosity, and your desire to drive thoughtful discussions with partners and team members will be vital. We value diversity and believe our ability to create unique and astounding products/solutions is rooted in our commitment to appreciating varied points of view. 

About the role:

You will be responsible for honoring our partners by being open and prepared. Taking great pride in building vision-oriented relationships, you’ll be able to bring change to some of the largest industries in the world. You will understand our partners' needs, build collaborative and cross-functional integration plans with them, and build out activation strategies incorporating new marketing collateral and messaging, product features, and internal communications and trainings. You’ll gain high-level business context for our partners, while subsequently leading implementation efforts, conducting partner meetings, tracking tasks and deliverables, and measuring success metrics with the Partner. You will also work closely with the Empathy product, marketing and business development teams in ensuring Empathy is thoughtfully prepared to meet mutual partnership goals.
