SafeSize

Sales Manager DACH

What we do 

No matter if you’re the biggest sports fanatic, have a ‘minor’ shoe addiction or you own just one pair of sneakers, you know that finding the “perfect” shoe can be challenging. We’re here to help people find that perfect shoe every single time. We have created a way to make a 3D scan of your feet and match that profile with our own (and the world’s largest) database of 3D-scanned shoes. Our goal is to inspire people to do what they love in maximum comfort, whether it’s running a marathon, dancing all night or simply going for a stroll in the park.  As an employer, we strive to translate this philosophy into a happy and balanced lifestyle for all our team members, giving them the opportunity to grow and thrive while doing what they love.  Like our concept?  Read more about it here! 

 

The fit we hope to find 

We are looking for a talented and experienced sales expert, who has a deep understanding of omni-channel retailing (in-store and online), who knows how to consult and sell technical solutions (SaaS, hardware, integrations and customizations), who is a real team player, and who has the ambition to grow SafeSize significantly.

Our solution is used by thousands of retailers worldwide and growing at a fast pace. For our DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) region, we want to welcome a Sales Manager to the team who knows how to grow our business. The focus is on finding new retailers to work with and collaborate with our current partners to make them more successful when they use our 3D solutions. You will work both from the HQ in Almere (NL) and in the field, where you search, prospect, sell, and manage your accounts. Although your main KPIs will be the growth of our installed base in terms of solutions, it is all about making customers happy with our solution. If you currently are a driven sales expert, preferably in Fashion / Sport / Footwear industry and/or the technology industry, and you are looking to join a passionate and international team at a tech scale up, this is your chance!

You are part of the EMEA Sales Team, and you will work closely with our Operations (Customer Support, and Delivery & Success Management) and Product teams to make our customers successful.
