your role.

As a Business Development Representative, you find new opportunities and are the first point of contact for prospects. This means you need the confidence to get on the phone and talk to people to qualify leads and do proper handovers to the Sales team. In addition to phone calls, you contact prospects through emails, LinkedIn and other creative initiatives. You are driven to not just sell a platform but to help to find the best solutions for our clients.

This role is the perfect opportunity to put your excellent problem-solving and interpersonal skills to use. Your task is to find and establish relationships with the right decision makers and influencers within enterprise accounts, identify their needs and challenges and set up appointments.

You gain critical sales skills and receive a thorough onboarding as well as unlimited on-the-job sales training that will qualify you for internal career growth. We are invested in our talents and want to see you succeed.
