Job description

Who are we and why should you care?

Teamleader is a SaaS scale-up founded in 2012 in Ghent, Belgium. We simplify work for small businesses by offering an all-in-one solution for CRM, project management and invoicing. In the summer of 2019, we acquired a second tool, Teamleader Orbit, which focuses on helping medium-sized agencies thrive. By joining forces, we became the logical choice for any business, big or small, that aims to automate and simplify work. To keep fueling our growth, we are looking for an Account Executive FR on the Teamleader Orbit side of our business. 

If you have the ambition to join a thriving SaaS business and drive sales, deliver results and be part of an ambitious team, we would love to hear from you. We are looking for a dynamic, driven business builder who loves technology and cares about our customers’ success as much as our growth. 

Does this sound like you? 

Besides your high level of energy, you love a challenge, and you enjoy building something meaningful. Selling a solution that helps customers and playing a critical role in a fast-growing software company is what drives you. You are self-motivated, smart and passionate with B2B sales and have a track record in running sales cycles where you constantly drive value for the customer with the end in mind, managing internal and external stakeholders to drive successful business.   

Key responsibilities of the role:

  • You work proactively together with SDR’s  to identify, new business opportunities and work on creating and prioritizing strategic target accounts. You own your territory of accounts and act as a CEO to build plans around this territory together with other stakeholders in the company  

  • You will run sales cycles where the “assessment of the business case”, the “validation of a technical fit” and co create an “on-boarding plan”,  will be the parts that will be led and managed by you. In that process you are able to provide (product) presentations, you understand the customers business and processes, and you are able to explain how our solution offering  is able to drive value for their business.

  • You are more than happy to visit your potential customer in France - most probably Paris region. 

  • You have good negotiation skills and you have a goal getters mentality. Winning for you is not only getting a signature, but being able to drive progress all along the way. 

  • You are a team player that likes to work on cross-functional projects that will help our business and the business of our customers thrive.

Why others chose Teamleader: we're lively, not corporate

  • You are part of a fast-growing company that values getting things done and honest communication. The result: a fast-paced tech environment, open feedback culture, room for initiatives and ideas.
  • We have the energy and boldness of a start-up and the expertise and pragmatism of a scale-up. The result: a team of both young and seasoned professionals led by supportive and approachable managers who give recognition and rewards for hard work. We also value transparency about results and strategy.
  • You have your own personal budget to spend on training or (virtual) events and numerous other internal advantages. The result: continuous growth and learning.
  • Being location in France, you will be working remotely most of the time but know this, you are always more than welcome to visit our offices in in the heart of Ghent and Amsterdam-East! 

Even in COVID times, Teamleader is a happy, purposeful place. While we miss our shared kitchen and sunlit terrace, our setup allowed for a swift change to a functional and engaging remote work environment. We compensate for social distance with quizzes, cocktails delivered at home, informal chats and events, work-time flexibility, competitions, extra coaching and everything else you can think of
