Business Development Coordinator
Beirut, Lebanon/Home-based

Overview: Triangle works to transform detailed, and often dense information into a compelling message that is visually appealing, generates maximum impact and bridges the divide between policy making, research and the media. In doing so, we produce lasting results and positive impacts for the organisations we works with, and the communities we works in.

As a growing organization, we are looking for highly motivated individuals who bring their expertise, ambition, and innovative ideas to complement our mission. We work in a multilingual, highly collaborative environment, with staff distributed over multiple time zones and countries. As such, we seek colleagues who can manage projects independently and deliver exceptional results. In return, we offer unusual autonomy and opportunities for growth. If this sounds like the team you’ve been looking for, we would love to hear from you.
