Jobbatical is looking for a smart, resourceful and energetic Sales Development Representative to help us drive business and acquire clients in Germany.
Our team is on a mission to increase net talent mobility in the world and the best way of doing that is by making the hardest part of relocating to another country – immigration – ridiculously easy. We have ambitious plans for the future that start with helping hyper-growth startups and global companies scale by taking over employee relocation off their plate. In the past few months, we’ve worked with clients like Transferwise, Pipedrive and Twilio to relocate people from dozens of countries. Now we need you to take the next step.

- Capability of understanding customer pain points, requirements and correlating potential business to value that can be provided by Jobbatical.
- Experience with Pipedrive, (or other CRMs), Linkedin Sales Navigators and other prospecting tools is preferred but not a must
- Since the Growth Team is distributed around the world, you should have very strong communication and organizational skills. Remote working experience is a bonus, but if you’ve never worked from home, that’s fine too.
- Finally, you should be fluent in German and English.
We strongly encourage candidates of all different backgrounds and identities to apply. We are already a diverse bunch, but each new hire is an opportunity for us to bring in a different perspective.
Who you’ll be working with (and from where)
Our Growth team is 5-people strong, but you’ll work primarily with (and report to) Gonz
, our Head of Growth based in Barcelona, and Sarah, our Growth Lead in Germany. You’ll also work with Maria, our Content Strategist, and several freelancers. She is both based in our Estonian HQ, which you are welcome to visit anytime.
As our German Sales Development Representative, you’ll be based anywhere (or in our Estonian office if you'd like). We are a remote-friendly company, so you can go and come as you please, but you are expected to spend the majority of your time somewhere that overlaps with German business hours, because that’s where customers are.
