Our Sales and Partnerships team works with strategic partners and merchants to grow our business in various customer segments, sometimes totally new unexplored industries and merchant types. 

We are at the forefront of SumUp's interactions with key industry players with whom we identify various opportunities for collaborations, new products and use cases for our family of products. Sales is a key component of our team, so having a hunter mentality and hunger to explore is key to success within the team.

  • You’re persistent when it comes to understanding and fulfilling our customers’ expectations.
  • You have established connections in the local market.
