Senior Account Executive (m/f/d)

Job description

Let us introduce to you...

When we launched emlen in October 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, we started to tackle the challenge that 81% of today's B2B buyers expect a B2C customer experience - just as they experience when consuming content on Netflix or shopping quickly and easily on Amazon.

We had always asked ourselves why it is not possible to create a similar experience in the process of purchasing software, services or technology in the B2B environment. Currently, it's a cumbersome and complicated process, often involving several tools and touchpoints from the beginning of the journey to the deal closing, and it does not provide an individually tailored experience for the buyer. That's why we started rethinking how to set up Buyer Enablement.

After just one year, more than 200 business leaders already use emlen to line up their sales and marketing efforts in order to simplify and enhance the purchasing process for their customers. With our team of passionate and driven people, we focus on creating great experiences. We put customer value first and love to inspire each other while driving for excellence.

To further grow our business, we are currently seeking a hungry (Senior) Account Executive (m/f/d) to join our team in Berlin as the first hire in our Sales team. We're looking for someone who is truly ambitious, not only to exceed individual targets but also to play a wider, pivotal role in growing emlen as a business. If you are looking for an exciting opportunity to make a real impact in a young, fast-paced and agile company, we would love to hear from you!
