We're looking for a Junior Business Developer to join us on our mission

As a Junior Business Developer at Teamleader:

You'll be in contact with entrepreneurs and small-to-medium businesses on a daily basis, talking to them about their work management software. Our goal is to help entrepreneurs work smarter with our all-in-one tool. You'll be part of a team who loves to work together, help each other, share insights, achieve success, while inspiring entrepreneurs to digitalise their workflow. At the same time, you'll grow too - both as a professional and as a person.

You'll talk with many different entrepreneurs every day and most of the time, Teamleader is their first step to digitalisation; we really make a difference! You get to know your leads very well in a short period of time, our average sales cycle is 20 days. After potential customers activate a 14-day trial, you're their go-to person. With your laser-focus and self-starter attitude, you identify future fans in a blink of an eye and you pass them on to a more experienced colleague to perform a demo and close the sale. In this process you'll work on both inbound and outbound leads. We support you with a clear training track where we help you grow towards a more senior role.

We want you to build a relationship with the entrepreneurs you’re talking to. You have a genuine interest in the SMB market and you want to help our leads work smarter.

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

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. You’ll be working in a fast-paced tech environment with open feedback culture and room for initiatives as well as ideas. You’ll have plenty of room to apply your personality, express yourself, and impact our course of action with your insights or ideas.

On top of that, you’ll get:

  • An extensive training budget

  • A hybrid working model: a pleasant mix of office and home working. Find out more here.

  • A personal tooling budget, to make working from home as comfortable as from our offices.

  • Daily budget-friendly in-house prepared lunch and dinner options, as well as Free Food Fridays, Friyays and numerous sport initiatives!

  • Competitive and market-conform salary with compensations and benefits, including mobility options.

  • 32 holidays on top of the standard public ones! (based on full-time employment)

  • Our long-lasting dedication to employee well-being, just take a look at our career page and Instagram to see how we keep the Team(leader) spirit going.

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. We believe that a diverse, inclusive working environment is crucial to realise that ambition, so we’re committed to continue to build and cherish a culture where every colleague feels welcome, appreciated and heard.

Job requirements

You’d be a great fit for this role, if you:

  • You love to talk with entrepreneurs about their businesses to identify their needs in regards to their workflow and business processes.

  • Preferably, you know a thing or two about B2B sales, Customer Relationship Management and entrepreneurship but we don’t require work experience for this position, as long as you can prove you’re a hard-working person with some great deal of willpower.

  • Your focus will be mainly on warm calls, you'll need to put efforts into your calls to transform them into successful sales. Positivity and persistence are key here and you’re not brought down by a bad interaction.

  • You strongly believe in technology and have an affinity with cloud-based applications.

  • You must speak Dutch at a full professional level and fluent in English (for internal communication). Fluency in French is a huge plus!
