Before we start to inspire you with this amazing position, we want you to know one thing: For applying, you just have to answer a few questions and not hand in your latest CV and motivation letter. You can of course, but if you don't have your latest CV in English at this second, it's no disadvantage or problem at all. :) Looking forward to get to know you!
What it is about
Our main goal is to win and keep happy customers who love to work with our Content Platform, the Order Areas and our other apps throughout Europe. For that we want to take our sales organization to the next level and strive to optimize the cross-country collaboration within the sales teams in DACH, BENELUX, France, Italy, Denmark and Spain. And this is where you come into the play: We need someone to assist our Head of international Sales and at the same time to keep the international sales team on track. Your journey can start either in November 2021 or in January 2022. Ready for a truly international experience and to learn from geniuses?
What to expect
You work closely together with Alies, one of our founders and also Head of international Sales. Therefore your assistance part of the role will include the following:
You keep the office in Amsterdam together.
We keep our spirit high! Organizing team activities (in collaboration with Vika from People & Culture) for the whole team and especially the international sales team is also on your list.
Milan, Paris, Hamburg… You will plan all the trips since Alies will be on the road just as much as a rockstar.
Being that much on the road, Alies barely has time to chase all her duties as Team Lead, so you also support her in that - from scheduling feedback meetings with team members to handling all the documents for preparation.
Beneath that, you’ll also be the conductor of the international sales team:
To make the sales team's life easier you will be in control of tasks that come with our cross country sales organization.
We don’t want to work on two different endings! You let the team members know which brand is being chased cross-country, so that the right person at the right place can make the calls.
You’re the one giving out the inbound leads to the sales people. By doing so you have some ideas to automate this process.
You are the gate keeper for relevant tracking sheets and our customer base, making sure the brands and retailers are getting their demos and trainings, going live once they’ve signed and actually using the platform.
Having this broad overview, you also pinch the sales people from the side if you see any key brand waiting for Fashion Cloud to chase after them.
Whilst taking care that every tracking and the communication is in rank and file, you also optimize the sales processes and communication. Sky is the limit!
You make sure that the international sales team is always well-connected to the rest of Fashion Cloud.
That’s what you bring to the table
When it comes to planning the upcoming weekend or next vacation you’re the one taking over the whole organization - just because you love to plan things.
Friends would call you the perfect multitasker. That implies you never lose the view on the big picture and are always a step ahead.
You do not just love to organize events and trips but also numbers and sheets - would you even call excel your friend? If the answer is yes, read further.
You are flexible and have thicker fur than a polar bear in the coldest winter and you feel confident in speaking up in front of your crew.
Your second name is integrity.
You always work on getting the carrots that hang in front of you & you enjoy the chase.
Ideally you have already worked as an executive assistant before.
You can speak English fluently, since this is also the language you will communicate in most.
Last but not least you laugh, at least, twice, daily.
That's why you should join
We have a humorous mix of developers, fashion lovers and ordinary geniuses working together. You will have all the freedom to implement and apply your know-how with us and contribute to Fashion Cloud continuing to grow like crazy and becoming THE place to be for the entire industry. Working in such an international environment is fun and challenging and you will learn a lot. One thing everybody here loves is the team and our legendary all-company events. Along the way, you'll get an insight into the world of a young but established company and experience the steep learning curve and freedom that everyone is always talking about... P.S. We're fully committed to our project and go to work every day in high spirits. That rubs off - believe it or not.
