Sales Development Representative - DACH
So, who are we?
Cash is old school. Out of pocket expenses suck. Workplaces need to be more trusting, progressive and – that's right, we're gonna say it – fun.
To get you off to a good start, let us just say that we are doing away with an outdated business process that’s gate employee spending through a business spending platform. This ends out of pocket spending, encourages autonomy and trust in employees, and takes a huge burden off the finance team. You'll be selling the SaaS tool (company spending solution) that comes with physical pre-paid cards (so with a fintech twist) that are then distributed to all employees of the company.
Working at Pleo means you're working on something very exciting: the future of work. Through fintech we've seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending. Based on some pretty amazing Series B-round investment in 2019 , and a Series C-round announced in April 2021 , we think we're onto something big.
Things you’ll be doing
- Building pipeline through cold calling, social and email outreach to senior finance leaders
- Qualifying potential deals before passing to AEs
- Using the best in class tools for creative prospecting
- Enabling others and sharing best practices to learn as a team

What do we offer?
- Salary is €36,000 + €9,000 OTE, with uncapped commission (incl. a competitive accelerator model)!
