Every day at Zender we’re helping our customers reach their audiences with live presented game shows on mobile, like Qmusic’s daily liveshow Qwistet. We're looking for account executives to grow Zender's customer base in the Benelux and abroad.
We want people with a first experience as an Account Executive, preferably in a B2B SaaS setting. The ideal candidate is passionate about media and fascinated by how technology is changing the way people consume live content on mobile.
Do you want to play a decisive role in an innovative young company with a solid list of first customers (Medialaan/De Persgroep, Studio 100, VRT, NPO Zapp, EO, LRT)? Are you used to working with a mix of inbound and outbound generated leads? Are you an enthusiastic evangelist with a burning desire to close deals?
Then apply via firstname.lastname@example.org today. We can't wait to get to know you!

Enthusiastic about the relationship between media and technology (future of television, livestreaming, mobile apps, gaming, esports…)
Must be a self-starter with a strong desire to learn and grow.
1-3 years of account executive sales experience (in a closing role), preferably in SaaS platform software.
Strong prospecting abilities
Effective written and verbal communicator, both in English and in Dutch
Competitive mindset: you always want to be at the top of the leaderboard

Generate new business opportunities and effectively manage the pipeline
Manage contract negotiations during the sales process
Approach all deals with a customer-first “ready to help” mentality
Work cross-functionally with the 7 people team at Zender
Accurately track all sales activity and forecasting in Hubspot crm.

Small team, big impact
High autonomy that comes with being with the first people on the team
The excitement of a young company combined with the stability brought by experienced and empathetic leaders who understand that people also have homes to go to
