After closing our $80M Series B funding last year and going through a hyper growth phase, we are now striving to lead the tech-focused transformation in our field and become the number 1 all-in-one spend management suite for midsize and enterprise companies. Join us as our new Account Executive in Munich and help us achieve our goals! 🚀
As Account Executive you will develop the German market and position Yokoy's products and services in the market. The right positioning is crucial for our continuous growth. As a hungry sales enthusiast and quota hunter you can live out your passion! While we value good college degrees, we think personal responsibility and a self-starter as well as smart personality is much more important.

🧑🏽‍💻 What you'll do:

  • Generating new business opportunities through your network, cold calling, partners and existing customers
  • Pitching Yokoy to SME’s online and onsite
  • Pipeline planning - Follow a disciplined approach to maintain a rolling pipeline
  • Building up relationships with various stakeholders, mostly in the Finance space (C-Level)
  • Overachieving your quarterly new business targets
  • Maintaining our CRM system with accurate customer- and pipeline information
  • Collaborating cross-functionally with Product, Engineering, Marketing and Operations

⚒️ What you'll need:

  • At least 4 years of experience in business development activities and in direct sales (quota carrying)
  • Excellent communication and relationship building skills
  • A confident personality that finds new, creative ways to generate business
  • Expertise in digital technologies - FinTech is a plus
  • Native German and fluency in English, other languages are a plus

🚀 What you'll get:

  • Resources and trust: you own your work and can shape things from day one
  • Flat hierarchies: opportunity to work closely with the founders and the leadership team
  • Fast-paced environment: quickly measure and learn about the impact of your work
  • Flexibility: everyone has their own highly productive times - we look at the output and not at what time it was produced
  • Hybrid setup: we enjoy in-person sessions, but we have also learned (thank you Covid) how to be efficient with remote working
  • Competitive scale-up package with the possibility to partake in the upside
  • Work anywhere: we offer up to 6 weeks remote work within the EU
We are keen to get to know you. Apply with your CV and/or LinkedIn profile and a few words on why you would like to join Yokoy. We look forward to your application!
👉🏽 What’s going to happen next: we aim to get back to you regarding your application within 8 business days. Our interview process tends to take around 4 weeks to complete. If you need more flexibility or are on a tighter schedule, don’t be afraid to let us know.
