Job description

Speakap has become one of the most successful mobile-engaged SaaS solutions for organisations with distributed employees. We've helped more than 500 customers across the globe change the way they connect, develop and communicate with their workforce, and it’s only the beginning!

With our headquarters in Amsterdam and offices in New York and Cologne, we're growing in so many ways! We're looking to hire highly focused and deeply motivated professionals that enjoy the challenge of working at a fast-paced, rewarding and transformative international company.

If this all sounds like it would get you out of bed with that little extra pep in your step, then keep reading and get ready to tell us about you. We're looking for you!

It's going to take a big effort to enlighten and introduce organizations about our solution, so we're looking for a motivated junior who is interested in a career in sales, and who can help build our US sales pipeline. You'll be responsible for driving the sales engine with prospective customers in a new market, from the ground up. Of course, you will receive continuous guidance from your superiors so you won't feel left in the dark. We highly encourage recent graduates or individuals new to the area of sales to apply! If you enjoy a challenge, and working with businesses from a variety of industries in a rapidly changing environment, then come and join us! We're nice, we promise.

What you'll do

Your main responsibility will be to source and qualify potential customers who can benefit from Speakap product and services.

Here are a few things we envision you will lead and help with until we learn otherwise:

  • Generate leads and build relationships by nurturing cold and warm prospects and attracting new potential sales outlets.
  • Experiment with and implement social selling strategies including but not limited to:
    • Networking on LinkedIn, creating and sharing videos that showcase our products on YouTube.
    • Participating in prospect-saturated virtual communities/forums/social media groups.
  • Manage and maintain a pipeline of interested prospects and engage sales executives for the next steps when qualified.
  • Identify best practices to refine the company’s lead generation playbook.
  • Utilize Salesforce, Outreach, Zoominfo, phone, email, and social media channels to generate new sales opportunities.
  • Identify prospect needs and suggest appropriate products/services, relaying pertinent information back to the team appropriately.
  • Build long-term trusting relationships with prospects to qualify leads as sales opportunities.
  • Proactively seek new business opportunities in the market.
  • Set up meetings or calls with (prospective) customers and sales executives.
  • Report on daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly results.

  • You have an appetite for learning. You have both professional and life experience but you're not done yet. You seek out the best way of working for us whatever the theory or your experience tells you.
