As a Business Developer at Teamleader

As a Business Developer for the German-speaking market, you will have a key role in the international expansion of Teamleader Orbit sales cycle. While generating potential leads and following up on them, you will be speaking with key stakeholders in the agency market on a daily basis. You will:

  • explore ways to generate sales growth
  • inspire companies to digitalise their workflow. You are free in the way you handle this (phone calls, social selling, mails, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, etc.). We will provide you with the tools and training to excel at your job. 
  • work closely together with our German partners as you will schedule demos for them and brief them in the most efficient way possible, so that you can work towards your common goal: help agencies work smarter. 
  • work together with the marketing team to help them identify, as well as pursue the right targets and prospects. 

When you start working, you will get an in-depth training, as well as learn everything about us, our story, your colleagues, our workflow-tool and receive a comprehensive sales onboarding. 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!

  • An extensive training budget

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

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.
