Job description

" You're the payment expert for our future Users"

What's your mission? 💪 🚀

We're currently moving Upflow from zero to one: with only a couple of paying Companies, it's only the beginning of everything!

As a sales associate, you're the first real contact from Upflow for our future Users. You own the sales cycle on your leads: reaching out to Customers, discovering their needs and qualifying them, demo them the product, and closing them to onboarding.

Your job implies:

  • Lead generation and qualification: You find and identify the right prospects, as we have no SDR team yet.
  • Buyer journey: You understand the different type of persona, and the patterns in the buying journey to make repeatable wins.
  • Questions and objections handling: you're an expert with our product and our ecosystem, you want to know more every day. You're able to advise our leads on topics outside of Upflow.
  • Closing: You know how to bring a Customer to the buying decision, and close them
  • Product feedback loop: You're passionate about providing feedback to the product team, based on the missing features, loss reasons. Your input is key!
  • Reporting: your CRM is not a constraint, but a tool to better understand how to improve what you're doing.

Your work hand in hand with the teams at Upflow.

  • Marketing, to adjust the content and tone of voice based on what you see / hear on the ground.
  • Growth, they're your scaling machine once you've identified winning patterns in a vertical.
  • Onboarding and success, as you're accountable for the deals pushed to them and analysing the win / loss reasons.

Remember, we're early stage with a significant growth ahead meaning you will have the opportunity to grow with the company and shape its future. It's up to you!

Preferred experience

Who are you? 🕵

  • You have prior 2/3 year sales experience in SaaS, ideally for B2B customers;
  • You're passionate about the fintech ecosystem;
  • You have excellent communication and convincing skills;
  • You're rigorous and curious, you like going deep into complex finance concepts, just to make sure you have the right answer for our Customers;
  • You're self driven and autonomous.

Recruitment process

  • 🤩 Interview: 45 min at our offices with your hiring manager to get to know each other and answering your questions. Be prepared, be curious.

  • 🤓 Case: Time to show your skills. We usually provide a detailed written case of technical test allowing you to showcase your capabilities.
  • 🏃 Interviews second round: You meet with 1 cofounders and 1/2 peers if needed.
