We Appreciate

You know this already: Sales Funnel, Customer Journey, Market insights, budget planning for a market, stakeholder management, Sales KPIs and KPI driven reporting.

We expect real owners to be the sparring partner for the market. You identify sales opportunities but also risks and have what it takes to get necessary measures done, communicate early, clearly and transparently. We are looking for a well organised, versatile, and extravert communicator with an agile mindset, in short, a black belt end-to-end thinker.

  • Ideally, you have been working as a Sales Development Manager for the last couple of years or in a similar sales environment.
  • You have actively developed sales opportunities and steered your related market KPI driven. You take responsibility for your dedicated market and understand their customers' journey. You are an innovator.
  • Stakeholder management is one of your strongest points: you communicate ahead of time, transparently, and clearly. You easily identify blockers and bottlenecks. You understand your stakeholders’ interest, you have the capacity to filter out information and discuss only what is relevant for the stakeholder you have in front of you.
  • You know at any point in time your market environment, so you know what is most important and what can be traded off.
  • Our working language in Karlsruhe is English, together with a Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) and a PMI (or equivalent).
