Business Development Representative, EMEA
At Ground Labs our Business Development Representatives (BDRs) are the cornerstone of our success and future growth. Do you want to be an instrumental part of a fast-growing global software company where you will convert inbound, warm and legacy leads, as well as outbound calling, into qualified leads for the pipeline. You will work closely with your Enterprise Salespeople to drive new business from SMEs to the largest companies across the EMEA region. You will learn how to convey the value that Ground Labs’ solutions bring to organisations and their customers, employees and shareholders.
You should be comfortable making cold calls and able to engage middle and senior level managers within IT departments. Enthusiasm combined with a strategic, data-driven mindset will help you to succeed while being coachable and a self-starter will enable you to thrive on the front lines of this fast-paced industry. As such you will be responsible for generating outbound meetings, personalising and managing your own sprint campaigns and working within a global team that share new and innovative ideas. Fluency in your English is a necessity in order to be able to describe a technical product to our customers.
