Sales Manager

Job description

About us
Since 2015, transporters in the Netherlands have been getting more out of their fleets thanks to Route42's smart technology. 'Fueled by data, driven by intelligence' is our motto. We are a high-tech SAAS scale up from Breda and make transport companies ready for the future. A future in which data and technology are crucial for driving sustainably, efficiently, and safely.

The young and ambitious team of Route42 consists of around 15 people with varying experience and backgrounds. But what they all have in common is passion. Passion to make a difference. Passion to be innovative in a traditional market. Passion to move themselves, Route42 and the customer forward.

Wat do you do as a Sales Manager?
In 2 words: make deals! As a Sales Manager, you are responsible for the commercial growth of Route42. This growth is achieved by binding new customers to Route42. You approach interesting companies yourself (cold and inbound leads), match the challenges within the company with the solution offered by Route42 and, together with the customer, formulate a business case in order to close the deal. It often starts with a trial process that is supervised by your Customer Success colleague, but you remain closely involved to achieve the conversion and ultimately get the customer to make more use of our services.

We are looking for a Sales Manager with ambition, who first proves himself able to sell our products and to realise his target (or preferably over performed of course!). Primary market area will be the Benelux. Subsequently, the sales team will expand rapidly and you will take the lead in building and guiding the team, but also set a good example by achieving your own targets (lead by example).

In short, a broad position with plenty of opportunities for further development.
