RFP Analyst

Location: Allen, TX

Department: Sales

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Entry Level

For you, the world needs order. There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as color-coded tab dividers. Post-it notes feel like backstage passes. And a to-do list isn’t just a necessity. It’s a way of life. But there’s more to you than just refreshing promptness, eager reactions to three-ring binders, and an unwavering devotion to exactness.

You are a voracious aficionado of word architecture, a careful sculptor of rhetoric, a communicative dynamo. You excel at gathering the facts and figures, the nitty-gritty, the mumbo-jumbo. Delicately turning them over in your mind and on your plate, you then transform them into something persuasive, easy-to-read, and upbeat. That’s you. Just a hint of your magic.

We need a proposal writer that doesn’t just spit information back out like a tired slot machine; we want a game changer. Have ideas for a new method? Prefer to spend downtime researching other RFPs and studying content? Are you slightly angry when you lose, only to be spurred on to regroup, revisit, revise? Now we’re talking.

We’re an intimate, impassioned company growing pretty darn fast. In fact, we’ve made the Inc. 5000 for six years in a row. But that doesn’t mean we’re rapidly expanding beyond our waistband. We’re carefully selecting determined, open, and playful people that want to be a part of something great. We’re Forte, and we simplify payments for merchants and developers by offering strong solutions for accepting credit cards and eChecks online, on mobile devices, and more. Busy, busy builders.

You’d work under the Director of Sales. 

We’re notified every day of current RFPs, and most of them are government bids. Once we sift through the options and decide what to respond to, we need you to help craft the RFP based on research, the competitor’s bid, and your own expertise. You’ll also work alongside other team members and departments in order to prepare the documents correctly. While it’s currently mostly government, we do expect to stretch out and expand into new marketplaces. Flexibility is key, but spandex pants are not necessary.

Stuff You Might Do:

  • Craft the RFP
  • Review and study the competition
  • Take notes like a college student
  • Proofread and edit documents
  • Communicate with sales
  • Sprinkle in a marketing spin
  • Nonchalantly drop in technical jargon
  • Compile content into the right format
  • Help maintain required docs for bid responses

Must-Haves:

  • Bachelor’s that relates to this job
  • 2-3 years of relevant experience
  • Microsoft Office and SharePoint mastery
  • Sharp, meticulous (and yet still big and fancy) brain

What’d Be Cool:

  • Significant relationship history with response writing
  • On a first-name basis with the payments industry

Perks Of The Palace:

  • Serious PTO
  • Optional compressed schedule
  • Casual dress
  • Full medical benefits and fitness club reimbursements
  • Pooch policy
  • 401K
  • Outings, events, and friendly competitions
