Business Developer (French speaking)

Job description

Who are we and why should you care?

Teamleader is a SaaS scale-up founded in 2012 in Ghent, Belgium. We offer an all-in-one platform for CRM, project management and invoicing, helping more than thousands of SMEs work smarter. We’re growing at rocket speed, and are enjoying every bit of this rollercoaster ride: in just 2 years, we opened 5 offices in Amsterdam, Berlin, Milan, Madrid, and Paris. Our ambition stretches far and beyond: we want to become Europe’s #1 in our industry. Today, our team consists of 170+ people and is still growing strong.

Scale-up, you say? Yes, we are already playing with the big guys. We have the make-it-happen attitude of a startup but the resources and skills of a scale-up. Our team is packed with experts in their field, we have tried-and-tested playbooks to benefit from, and plenty of resources at your disposal.

To keep fueling our growth, we are looking for a Business Developer (French speaking) for our office in Ghent and Brussels, Belgium.

This is what you do

We're looking for an experienced/driven Business Developer for Wallonia. This job entails about ideally 1-2 days in Ghent, 2-3 days in our flexible hub in Brussels and the rest of your time will be spent on the road.

Your focus will be to solidify Teamleader's name in the Walloon market and improve our market position there. To achieve this, you need to combine strong Teamleader sales skills with a knack for market research and a drive to spread the word about our great product.

You scour the Walloon market for local partnerships and networking opportunities, do channel research and visit the right fairs and events to get in touch with leads that will benefit from our product.

You present Teamleader to these qualified leads who are looking for software for CRM, project management and/or invoicing. You analyse their needs, propose Teamleader as the solution and give product demos that clearly show the added value of the tool. You refute any objections they might have and help them to get started using Teamleader. This way, you make sure a high percentage of leads are converted into customers.

This is who you are

  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit and you're always thinking commercially
  • You are natural networker and your enthusiasm is contagious
  • You have a knack for spotting business opportunities, be it for Teamleader, its partners or trade organisations
  • You have a strong network in the Brussels and Walloon SME market, ideally in the professional services industry
  • You have a feeling for all things digital and firmly believe in the future of cloud-based applications
  • Taking pride in your work is very important to you: your advice is crucial to make businesses work more efficiently
  • You get satisfaction out of helping your leads and closing deals
  • You have at least 2 years experience in B2B business development, preferably in an SaaS context
  • You have some previous sales experience or could easily adapt to a sales role.
  • French is your mother tongue, but you're also fluent in English. Dutch working proficiency is a plus.
  • Experience in working with CRM/ERP is a nice bonus


What we offer:

Teamleader is a fast-growing company with a one-of-a-kind company culture, home to an energetic bunch of people. Our HQ is situated in a thriving location, Dok Noord close to the city center in Ghent. Our very own kitchen crew, chefs Simona and Gerlinde, prepares sumptuous meals every day. We regularly take some time away from the office for teambuilding activities to bond and mingle. This is your chance to join a team of seasoned experts and young, ambitious professionals that believe in the power of continuous learning and self-development.
