Let’s start with an easy question: Do you get a kick out of selling a top of the class fintech product? Yes? Okay, so far so good. Let’s jump to the next one: Would you like to be the first touchpoint with upcoming enterprise Risika customers? If you can answer YES to this one as well then we are off to a pretty good start. Let’s continue.
We are Risika. Data lovers, Culture geeks, Visionaries, Doers, Leaders, Gamers, Learners, Explores, Moms, Dads, Dog lovers, Strategists, Foodies but most importantly we are People-People and we genuinely believe that our people are the most important part of our company. Still with us? Great, then please keep reading.
We are looking for a Business Development Representative for the enterprise market that has the right experience and skills to take us to the next level, but buying into the above and having a “we” approach to your job is an absolute must. Perfect, you are on board with that as well. Let’s dive a bit deeper into the role.
Opening the door to interesting conversations on how Risika can help enterprises is hard work. No need to hide it! But it can also be the best path into the world of startups, fintech and SaaS. A path where you will be exposed to product, market, customers, sales. A path that, if you are succesful and want it as well, can take you to other roles in Risika; sales, customer success, operations, marketing, product and so forth. Are you still keen to read more? If you can answer yes once again, then we are starting to seal the deal as you sound like one hell of a candidate. But, before sending your application please read the details as well.
