Reporting to the Head of Sales Development Western Europe & DACH, this role requires a driven individual who is able to achieve and excel targets and who will be able to evangelise and take a new product to market. You will help define and develop our sales process whilst understanding the key business challenges our product and services solve. We are a fast-growing company, and need people who will take initiative and ownership when executing new business. There is a great opportunity to progress within the business!

    • Ideally has first successful experience in a similar Lead Generation, Lead Development or Inside Sales function (internships included)
    • Is an easygoing person, with strong communication and presentation skills (verbal and written).
    • Shows interest for the digital sector
    • Experience in both a start-up and established business is a bonus!

Why we think you'll love it here:

    • You'll have the opportunity to be part of a very exciting company currently in hyper growth, and will help build and define the company in France.
    • Your salary will be competitive, with an uncapped commission structure.
    • You'll be part of a sociable office with a monthly happiness budget with regular socials and perks ranging from Friday happy hours, sports lessons, quarterly team building, annual Hackathon and many surprises all along the year (Halloween, Valentine's day, Christmas...).
