Summit Consulting, LLC provides state-of-the-art data analytics to support public policy decision-making and litigation. To do this work, we hire curious and collaborative people and empower them to do extraordinary things. We have an open and non-hierarchical culture, trust people walking in the door, and learn from one another.

  • Work with commercial leadership team to provide quality assurance of their business development efforts
  • Manage color team meetings and coordination with teaming partners
  • Assign writing assignments, draft proposal sections, and combine the work of multiple authors into a cohesive narrative
  • Develop proposal win themes through knowledge of client needs and understanding of Summit’s service areas
  • Develop, manage and maintain a proposal content library, including current capability statements, resumes, etc.


Apply for Summit’s Business Development Manager position if you:

  • Have 6-10 years of experience developing winning proposals within the federal civilian marketplace, with a portion of that time spent managing the proposal process
  • Understand the federal proposal lifecycle and proposal management, to include technical writing and developing pricing volumes
  • Are experienced in coordinating and motivating teams to meet color team and submission deadlines
  • Have Shipley (or comparable) Business Development Certification
  • Have a bachelor’s degree

We offer a collaborative and rewarding work environment where we value your input, experience and professional development. Our Washington, DC location, near the U.S. Capitol and the Union Station metro/VRE/MARC stop, means you can easily access our offices using public transportation.

If Summit selects you to move forward, you can expect to talk to our recruiting staff for an initial behavioral phone screen. That interview can lead to a next round of interviews with our team members to discuss your experience as it relates to Summit’s business needs and your fit within our company culture. If we select you for further consideration, be prepared to provide two references and transcript(s), and be willing to submit to a background check.
