Learning by doing - that is our motto. You will be part of a team that loves to work together, help each other, share insights and achieve success. Before you know it, you will be having your first conversations with potential customers and we will celebrate your first deal together!

We value diversity

Our ambition is to build and sell a product that helps everyone everywhere (starting with Europe) to work smarter, so we want our team to reflect that, too. We believe a diverse, inclusive working environment is crucial to realise that ambition, so we are committed to continue to build and cherish a culture where every colleague feels welcome, appreciated and heard.


You'd be a great fit if you:

  • are fluent in German (native level) and English (professional level) 
  • love to talk with C-level executives about their business and identify their needs as to their workflow and business processes. We mainly focus on marketing agencies, digital agencies and IT companies. We want you to get to know and understand the companies you’re reaching out too. You have a genuine interest in their market and you want to help them to work smarter.
  • have experience in sales but this is not a hard requirement. Preferably, you know a thing or two about B2B outbound sales and the world of marketing agencies.
  • strongly believe in technology and have affinity with cloud-based applications. 
  • believe in positivity and persistence. Your focus will be on making calls and you will need to put in efforts to transform those calls into successful sales. Positivity is key here!
  • are a good listener and able to ask the right questions. You can put yourself in the customers’ shoes and make the buyer feel understood. Your main prospects will be business owners, administration officers, operations managers, project managers or finance managers. Your goal is to build a relationship with them and earn their trust.
  • are eager to learn and proactive. You need to be able to try different approaches, think innovatively and change strategies if necessary.
