We don’t sell, we help entrepreneurs work smarter

As a Junior Business Developer, 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 are lively, not corporate

We have the energy and boldness of a start-up with 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 will be working in a fast-paced tech environment with open feedback culture and room for initiatives plus ideas. On top of that, you will get:

  • liberal training budget to spend as you choose.
  • hybrid working model, a pleasant mix of office work and home working. Find out more here.
  • personal tooling budget, to make working from home as comfortable as it is in our offices.
  • daily budget-friendly in-house prepared lunch and dinner options, as well as Free Food Fridays and Cava Fridays.
  • competitive and market-conform salary and compensation and benefits including a variety of transportation options.
  • 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, 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.


Is it you, we're looking for?

  • 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 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're fluent in English (for all internal communication) and you speak Flemish/ Dutch on a native level.

Being an employed entrepreneur

When you start working at Teamleader you will get an in-depth training where you learn everything about us and get a comprehensive sales onboarding. As soon as you start working, we expect you to be hands-on, with an entrepreneurial mentality. Learning by doing, that is our motto. We offer a unique commission plan: you're rewarded also based on targets within your full control that don't depend on successful sale closing.
