Sales Development (Starter)

Full-time · Amsterdam

At Starred, our mission is to give candidates a voice during the recruitment process. Starred is the category-leading solution to measure and analyse Candidate Experience. Our clients are innovative companies hiring at scale all over the world, including Roblox, Elastic, Robinhood, Brex, Coca-Cola, Deliveroo, and many more. That’s why we’re looking for an A-player for Sales Development at the start of their career.

This is the role with the steepest learning curve in a scaling tech company. You’ll play a vital role in building a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) sales environment which is known for its teamwork, technology, innovation, tight processes, and speed. In this role, you’ll make sure we find our way into the fastest growing companies on this planet.

Starred is known for their wondeful atmosphere. We're a young company with a team from over 10 different nationalities, who all love Dutch 'gezelligheid'. During the summer we regularly aboard the Starred ship for a boat trip in the Amsterdam canals.

We offer an environment for growth. You’ll develop over a period of two years to give you the perfect basis to enter a client-facing sales role. In that time you’ll master all aspects of sales development. You’ll learn on the job, from the best training courses, and from the experienced leadership team at Starred. Do we have your attention, and do you want to know more?

The most important thing is you have the right character to be successful in this role:

  1. You have a powerful engine that allows you to always hit the gas. You have lots of energy, take initiative, and are super-productive. You know from experience that you don’t need an external motivator to keep on going.

  2.  You are a creative thinker and you can quickly find your way in the various systems we are using. We know exactly what characteristics our most successful clients have, and you make sure we are able to find more of these companies at scale.
  3.  You’re competitive and want to score. You regard targets that have been set as a minimum performance level. You have perseverance and grit. You know a sale often starts with ‘no’, so you don’t get disappointed. Your eagerness to score doesn’t hold you back. On the contrary: you’re fun to work with, and take joy in sharing successes. You’re accountable and work with integrity.
  4.  Do you choose to earn or to learn at this stage in your career? If it’s the latter, then that’s great, because we believe learning is investing. It will pay off later, guaranteed. You’re hungry for feedback and want to be coached. You’re constantly creating value for the customer, for Starred, and therewith for yourself.
  5. You’re a fit for Starred and what we stand for. We live by our values:

  • Start with the human: No matter how advanced technology becomes, the cooperation between people should remain at the core. The personal relationships we maintain with each other and with our customers are crucial to the success of Starred.
  • Embrace & drive change: Don’t accept something because it is like it is. Breakthrough the status quo, innovate and reinvent your job and yourself constantly. In other words: embrace change.
  • Take ownership: Take responsibility for your work, your customers, your colleagues… your mistakes. In other words: at Starred you don’t rent your job, you own your job.
  • Work smarter: Sometimes there’s an alternative to working harder: working smarter. Which tools could you deploy? Who could help you out? Which partnership could speed you up? We’re constantly looking for ways in which we can work smarter.
  • Building together: You’re not alone. Without marketing there would be no leads, without the development team there would be no product, without customer success there would be no happy customers, and without sales, there would be no new customers. We’re building Starred together.

What we offer?

  • A competitive full-time base salary and variable sales commission.
  • At Starred we believe in ownership: ownership of your job, but also financial ownership. So therefore you’ll become a Starred shareholder.
  • As part of our team you’ll have an important stake in defining our sales strategy, and learn from working directly with the experienced leadership team at Starred, and with fun clients.
  • High level training courses, but most of all lots of freedom to learn on the job
  • We are working remotely at the moment, but we can't wait to be back in the office as soon as it becomes safe again. This role is based in Amsterdam.

If you recognise yourself in this profile and if this gets you excited, we want to hear from you. Tell us what you have to offer Starred, what attracts you in SaaS sales, and what makes you a special person. In short, why would we want you in our team?
