Please send your application by February 17, 2020 at the latest. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Are you looking to take a solid step forward in your career?
This could be it. We are looking to hire highly ambitious, open-minded candidates who will take on one hell of a challenge to progress their career - and fast.
The opportunity we're talking about is just the beginning. It's one where you start as an Account Executive, and can develop yourself into an Account Manager and then even team lead. This will hone in on your interpersonal skills, develop your negotiation tactics, and skill you up in the wonderful world of startup sales.
Where you take it next is up to you. Perhaps you'd like to have international opportunities through our different locations, or maybe you'd prefer to be involved on the hiring and onboarding of new hires. Maybe what excites you most is getting onto the stage and building yourself as a thought leader in fintech. These are just some of the ways we've seen our sales team develop themselves.
This highly ambitious role is not for the faint-hearted. The personal - and company - growth curve you'll see is comparable to none. This is a role where autonomy is not only encouraged, but also required. And the most exciting part? You'll be a part of building the future of work.
What's the product?
We are Pleo - it's a part of who we are as a tech company. We help customers to delegate employee spending through a business spending platform. This ends out of pocket spending, encourages autonomy and trust in employees, and takes a huge burden off the finance team. You'll be selling the SaaS tool (expensing platform) that comes with physical pre-paid cards (so with a fintech twist) that are then distributed to all employees of the company. The best part is we're all users of Pleo ourselves - so it's a very applicable tool. It impacts anyone in a company who could spend money on behalf of their business - be it a coffee with clients or a Mac for a new hire.
What does it revolve around?
For us, the most important stakeholders are our users. We have a very special relationship with them - we even build most of our product features based on what they're looking for. We get so excited when our clients share their unboxing of their Pleo cards on LinkedIn, and see how dramatically Pleo can solve their pains. We as employees also share our own pains, and then we come together to try and solve them.
As an Account Executive your primary point of contact are the Pleo admins. These are the CFOs, CEOs, MDs, Operations Directors and everyone else who might be the decision maker in regards to the spending policy in a company. We ensure that our Pleo admins are knowledgeable about the product and equipped to roll out our product to all their employees. You should be able to and feel comfortable speaking to everyone - your touch points will range from Financial Assistants and interns to CFOs and MDs.
What's up to me?
Pretty simply - to bring the good news of Pleo to your country, and get them to use it. The nice thing is there's so much freedom here. If you're an expert outbounder - do that. If you're a genius with email outreach, go that way. You will have targets of new active users - but how you get them is up to you. You'll also be supported by marketing - who deliver warm leads straight into your pipe (at a above-industry-standard rate).
What markets are we in?
Great question! We currently work with 1000s of clients in Denmark, UK, and Sweden and Germany. Saying that, Pleo users can (and have) used their cards all over the world - from Québec to Cape Town!
UK, you say?
We've grown out of our home market in Denmark, and have seen success in the UK, Sweden, and Germany too. Because of this success, we need to grow our UK team to next levels. We need great people to help us to do this.
Working at Pleo means you're working on something very exciting: the future of work. Through fintech we've seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending.
Being HQ'd out of Copenhagen means we're inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance, whether our office is in Copenhagen or not.
