Junior Business Development Manager (m/f/x) - DACH

Job description

Sharpist is on a journey to deliver measurable business outcomes to its global enterprise clients through a digital people development solution that founds on 1:1 coaching. As Europe's leading solution for people development, Sharpist marries the individual employee's needs for personalized learning with the demand for worldwide scalability of global organizations such as Axel Springer, STRABAG, and Porsche.

To achieve this "personalization at scale”, Sharpist bets on unparalleled user engagement. This engagement derives from combining a 1:1 human coaching offer with a digital learning journey that makes personal growth transparent and gamifies the development experience, just like Apple Health or Strava are doing in their particular domains.

As a Business Development Manager (m/f/x), you are the trusted advisor for your potential customers at Sharpist. You will often be the first point of contact between the market and Sharpist, and you will act as the face of the company in many conversations. You will be contributing to the business’s growth success in these core areas:

  • creating opportunities through communication with potential customers,

  • providing Marketing and Product teams with valuable insights from the potential customers,

  • contributing to a positive customer experience and brand awareness of the market.

💙 Sharpist was founded on the core belief that personalized learning is an essential right everyone should access. We are an equal opportunity employer, and we encourage you, no matter of all ethnic backgrounds, genders, and sexual orientations, to apply for this role. 🙂
