Halløjsa! Er du vores nye kollega i Team Danmark? Fedt! 🇩🇰🤩 Ok, I have tested that you can read Danish, let’s move on in English…
Cash is old school. Out of pocket expenses suck. Workplaces need to be more trusting, progressive and – that's right, we're gonna say it – fun. And that's what we're here to do. But we need your help.
Pleo is looking for hands-on sales professionals to join our danish team in our amazing HQ in front of the lakes in Copenhagen.
Simply put, we are looking for an Account Executive, whose primary focus will be to keep spreading the word about Pleo in Denmark. Your point of contact will be the Pleo admins, namely the CFOs, CEOs, MDs, Operations Directors and everyone else who might be the decision maker in regards to the spending policy in SMEs and medium-sized companies. This role requires a high level of energy, a can-do attitude paired with an analytical and empathetic mindset. You will be responsible for the entire sales cycle from prospecting leads via outbound activities, qualifying opportunities, delivering amazing product demos, converting deals to handing over your deals to our customer experience team.
But wait, you haven't heard of Pleo before? Really?
To get you off to a good start, let us just say that we are doing away with an outdated business process that’s been around forever – dreaded expense management.
We are doing that by helping 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 (company spending solution) 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.
Are you ready to drop your smørrebrød and come to help us!?
Pretty simply - we need you to help keep spreading the good news of Pleo to the danish market, and get them to use it. You come with the hard sales skills and curiosity, and in exchange we'll prepare you with an expertly crafted & tailored outbound methodology. Outbound sales gives you the ability to maintain control of your leads, as well as give you autonomy over your pipeline.
Full fluency in Danish
Ambition - lots of it - and strong inner motivation paired with a positive mindset (it's the key to hitting targets 🎯 )
More of a hunter than a farmer in sales (outbound experience strongly preferred)
Winning attitude - knowing that there are easy days and hard days and the ability to get through them both
Pipeline management and ability to work in a high energy sales environment 🔥 - Our sales process is dynamic and fast. You are geared to close sales every day!
A background in sales (sales and/ or BDR and B2B experience. Experience with SaaS sales is a plus).
Communication skills - You will execute email, social & calling outbound prospecting campaigns.
Exceptional people skills: strong listening abilities, empathy, and genuine and flowing curiosity to learn more about the people you are interacting with
Humility. You ask "How can I create and build more value here?" rather than "What's in it for me?"
Are easy to work with
Leave no lead unturned
Are a team player - we have no room for sharp elbows, politics, or egos in Pleo.
Ask for feedback all the time
Are a person they would also enjoy having a coffee with (virtual or not)
Your own Pleo card (no more out-of-pocket spending)
Health and travel insurance
2500€ per year as flex benefit (maybe you want to buy additional holidays, pay the gym, book a professional coach or pay part of your MBA)
Flexible working remote options for those onsite (just speak to your team)
Annual trips to somewhere for team camps (both company-wide ones and team-specific ones). The last one we had was in Spain! 🏝
Continual learning & development opportunities
25 days holidays (annual)
Amazing HQ where we value a great working environment (real barista coffee so you don’t have to go to a coffee shop, friday bars - we are at Denmark after all -, amazing lounge areas, rooftop terrace in the summer, among other things)
Loads of weird and wonderful niche communities to join in the company (we're talking guerrilla gardening, liquids tasting, the Pleo band, learning to code initiatives, that type of thing)
Wild enthusiasm and encouragement from us if you want to host MeetUps, events, etc - we'll help (venue, food etc)
Why work here?
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. Based on some pretty amazing Series C-round investment in 2021 we think we're onto something big.
So, in a nutshell, that's Pleo. Today we are a 500+ team, from over 54 nations, sitting in our Copenhagen HQ, London, Stockholm, Berlin, Madrid, Montreal, or Lisbon offices – and quite a few full-time remotes in 22 other countries! Being HQ'd out of Copenhagen means we're inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance. If you don't work in the office with us we'll help you get up the best remote setup possible, and will fly you in for our amazing team camps ✈️
