The rapid expansion of Dealroom.co requires an ambitious, curious, and startup-oriented mindset to support the Ecosystem team, acting as the first point of contact for sales and new growth potential in the US market.
The Ecosystems team’s mission is to map startup ecosystems for governments, and public-private agencies committed to accelerating and fostering the growth of their local ecosystems, providing them with data, insights, and visibility for their own ecosystems. Some of the current groups we support include Start Alberta, Innovate Pittsburgh, Las Vegas Economic Development, and many leading European hubs including France and the UK.
There are plenty of opportunities in the US for us to grow the government business; by researching, reviewing, and qualifying new business prospects, you will help the team grow the sales funnel and generate more proactive leads in order to expand the overall Dealroom presence, and achieve our targets. You will be in close contact with the team in Europe, who will coach and guide you to become an integral part of our growth into North America. To set you up for success, you’ll spend the first weeks of onboarding in Amsterdam.
This role is highly visible, acting as a launchpad for further career development, a position allowing you to evolve alongside the company as we scale. As part of the Ecosystem team, your main objective is to assist the team in developing and expanding one of Dealroom’s core products, the Ecosystem Solution, by identifying and nurturing worthy sales leads across different channels. You should be genuinely interested in working for a growing SaaS company operating in the startup & scaleup environment and should be ready to work closely with colleagues in Sales & Marketing.
