About us & the role

Although our astonishing growth has won us numerous awards, such as the Deloitte Rising Star for the Fastest Growing IT Agency in Europe, we believe this to be just the start.

  • Be responsible for annual sales targets through the growth of existing engagements and new client acquisitions
  • Frequently communicate your findings and progress to other departments

  • Contribute to internal sales knowledge and best practices

What do we expect from you?

Bonus points for:

  • Experience closing, working, and managing relationships with corporate and enterprise clients – such as scouting and taking part in procurement calls
