This is an opportunity to join the Sales team of NOOSA™ with the key role of hacking growth. You will be responsible to create long-term, value-based partnerships with textile brands, sorters and institutions, looking to enter the circular economy. You will drive growth by supporting the adoption of NOOSA™ fiber, guide and support potential customers through their circular transition journey.

 

In practice, you will have to do much more than that to ensure the development of the market is successful. You will be part of a young start-up environment, directly reporting to the founders and at the same time having a strong force of proposition and learning from other teams.

 

  •  You will identify potential leads and opportunities, create your plan of action and have full ownership of it. Find opportunities for improvement in all activities you do by being data driven to the bone, test new initiatives and show they work efficiently.
  • You are a natural born communicator, you have an innate talent for connecting with people and you quickly understand how to effectively communicate NOOSA’s value proposition to a very diverse audience of potential users. You are a killer at pitching, convincing and convert leads into engaged users.
  • Lead strategic meetings to gather information on the customer and be able to identify the right value proposition for them. Build business cases to prepare future off-take and pricing negotiations throughout the client onboarding process (product development).
  • Work closely with the technical team for optimized product development, debunking problems and present market insights. You have a strong ability to learn & show curiosity towards textile and clean technologies.

 

The Ideal Candidate

 

  •  Business Developer: you have a proven record of value-based sales. You are comfortable with product launch and innovation. Experience in sustainability, textile industry or product development is a plus.
  • Driven to have an impact: you are hungry to give your hardest effort and your best energies into building a truly successful global business. You are ready to do whatever it takes to grow NOOSA’s customer base. You are able to manage long sales cycles without fainting.
  • Take initiatives: we are building a truly global business at NOOSA but we are still just a startup. Life at NOOSA is a rollercoaster since things are moving fast and we are looking for individuals who can prioritise and get things done in such an environment.
  • Project Management: You bring a strategic reflexion by analyzing the environment through business cases, data analysis and you’re a killer at organization/planning a project from A to Z.
  • You are adaptable and resilient: and you can put yourself in the shoes of a large workwear group but also a carpet manufacturer as well as a niche fashion designer. You are adaptable to a very diverse team.
  • You navigate through Microsoft Office (Excel) and CRM tools. Experience with Odoo and Sales tools is a plus.
  • Fluent in English and one additional language (Portuguese, German, Spanish, Italian and Chinese are a plus).
  • You are open to travel. Driving license is required.

 

3 Nice to have

 

  • You have a deep understanding about long term retention and up-selling.
  • You are 100% Humble: You join us to learn as much as you can. You are not afraid by someone else’s success, on the contrary, it drives you.
  • You are 200% Passionate: You need to give a purpose to your day to day activities. Your users’ satisfaction is what matters the most. Your passion is contagious and you love to inspire people around you.

 

What we offer you

 

The opportunity to take ownership, grow quickly and make an impact in building a truly successful global business with a positive ambition.

 

  • Growth: we believe in hiring from within and retaining top talent so, as the business continues to grow extremely fast, you will be given the opportunity to develop and grow alongside it.
  • Entrepreneur mindset: if your dream is to get exposure to different areas of the business and learn how to succeed in any role, we give you the opportunity to move across different functions and learn everything you need to become an entrepreneur within a few years.
  • A young and motivated team: the biggest asset we have is the amazing people we have been able to attract to NOOSA. You will be able to join a truly international community of people who inspire each other every day and strive to contribute to the mission.
  • A worthy mission: we deeply care about having a positive impact on the world and we have decided to tackle one of the hardest and biggest problems of our times, textile waste and its impact on the environment. If you deeply care about the impact of your work and aren’t satisfied with “just a job”, this is your opportunity to make a difference.
