️ Your Mission
Join the international founding team launching Birdie in Germany!
At Birdie, it’s all about improving people’s lives. We think that our quality of life shouldn’t decrease just because we age, and we are building a platform to make it possible. We think that every senior deserves the very best care, and our modular product focuses on providing kind, accurate, and thoughtful care to seniors, directly at their homes.
After six years (and counting!) of growth in the UK, we launched in Germany a couple of months ago! Join our founding team and help us make great home care a reality in Germany too.
As the first point of contact for our very first customers in the German market, you’ll be responsible for creating our initial sales funnel. You will work closely with the Birdie founding team, and your work will be fundamental to the success of our product.
You will play a key role in shaping our go-to-market strategy & approach, and you will grow to own more and more pieces of our sales funnel as we grow the market together.

How you will contribute:

Where it begins:
You will start your career in sales with our training program. You will learn the fundamental pipeline generation skills (calling, email copywriting, objection handling, social selling, etc.) and study the industry.
Systems and Processes:
Gain proficiency in our prospecting systems (HubSpot) and execute on a prospecting process by setting qualified Meetings and Opportunities through your use of phone, email, and social channels. Be proactive in finding opportunities and become a conduit between prospective clients and your sales executive.
Become a trusted advisor:
The care sector is riddled with challenges, and it needs strong leaders. You will become an expert in understanding our partners’ pains and in advising them on how Birdie can help.
Develop strong working partnerships:
Work closely with marketing, attend in-person events and use content to attain pipeline goals through tightly coordinated account-based sales efforts.
Achieve personal success:
Achieve personal and financial success by exceeding your quota of monthly qualified meetings. Put yourself in the driver seat as you navigate the trajectory of your career!
Professional Development:
You will have regular check-ins with your line manager and team to guide your growth. After gaining competency and consistently exceeding target, you will be eligible to promote in various directions.
Whether you want to go into a full sales role (account executive), management (team lead/ manager), a support role (customer success) or marketing, we can explore these options with you.
