GetJenny has a great product and loads of happy customers and now they are heading towards international markets. They are building an energetic team focusing on international sales and looking for a Business Development Manager to accelerate their growth in the new markets! In this role, you will be focusing on opening and boosting their growth primarily in the Nordic markets.

As an ideal Business Development Manager, you are a sales professional who wants to deliver GetJenny’s service – a forerunner AI chatbot platform – to new customers and markets. You already have experience in B2B-sales and a proven track record from prospecting to closing. You’ll get to build your own sales pipeline and proactively manage and grow it. We consider as a great plus if you have knowledge about selling SaaS-solutions or experience in international sales. Yet more important is that you have drive to challenge yourself and grow with GetJenny as they take over the world. For most of the time you can work from GetJenny’s brand-new office in Helsinki, but as the business grows, they hope you are ready for more frequent travelling internationally.

GetJenny offers you a great opportunity to develop as an international sales professional and they are ready to help you to get your sales game on. To support your work, they have a Customer Success team to take care of the customer relationships and satisfaction after closing so that you can focus on new customer acquisition. Easy-going and flexible working environment, modern tools as well as competitive salary without commission limits are also part of the package.

What GetJenny is looking for:

  • Previous experience in B2B-sales and a skillset for the different stages of the sales process
  • Suitable study background (for example in business or tech) and preferably some international experience (e.g., from exchange studies or work)
  • Proactive and solution-oriented attitude – you don’t get confused even though there aren’t ready solutions for every situation
  • Willingness to challenge yourself and grow with GetJenny
  • Fluent skills in English (written and spoken)

Great plusses:

  • Expertise and track record in selling SaaS-services especially for SME sector, enterprise customers and/or public sector
  • Experience in international sales / opening new markets
  • If you recognise some of these buzzwords close to us: chatbot, live chat, online sales, customer experience, artificial intelligence
  • Any other additional language skills, especially in Nordic languages and/or Italian

GetJenny offers you:

  • Opportunity to jump along in a fast growing and internationalizing technology startup
  • A chance to grow your B2B-sales skills and be part of opening new markets especially in the the Nordics
  • Permanent position with flexible working hours
  • Freedom to genuinely contribute to your role and get more responsibility
  • Competitive salary without commission limits
  • A brand-new office in the Helsinki city centre
