Welcome to Lepaya

Our mission is to enable professionals across the globe to be more effective in their work and enjoy more happiness in life. Did you know that 85% of your effectiveness at work is determined by soft skills? To deliver on our mission, we deliver high impact soft skill training. Our training platform provides professionals with the more modern tools to develop themselves: online where possible, offline or face-to-face where that has more impact.

We launched early 2018 and, the success of our approach is demonstrated by our rapidly expanding client-base - ranging from the most innovative and fast-growing scale-ups such as Bynder and Picnic, to global corporates such as ING, and L’Oreal.

We are now fully committed to rapid growth and international expansion. This makes it the perfect time to step in. The new Sales Intern has the opportunity to work in a dynamic and entrepreneurial environment, where he/she plays a central role in achieving ambitious growth.

A word on diversity: at Lepaya, all we’re askin’ is a little respect! To us, it doesn’t matter where you were born, what you believe in, how old you are, what you look like, or who you love. We believe that different perspectives and backgrounds will actually lift Lepaya to new heights and increase our power of thinking. Our passion is to build a strong culture with respect for each other’s unique experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and skills. Join us, as there is a place for you here!

Why do we need you?

We need you to further conquer the Dutch market - that's about it! Be our Sales Rockstar and further develop our fast growing business and stimulate our growth with the help of our Sales Development Representative and Business Development Managers. You will work on the prospecting process: the first steps of customer contact. You will be involved in generating leads, following up customers and improving our Sales & Business Development operations. You come up with smart ideas on how to identify new opportunities and how to approach potential customers. And the more you know about what our customers want, the more you can support us in the further development of our product in the first steps of customer contact.

Specifically, what we would expect you to deliver over the course of your internship?

  • Increase Lepaya's market share by generating and qualifying leads through (potential) customer contact by e-mail, telephone, events and networking;
  • Identifying opportunities for Lepaya and developing these into concrete plans;
  • Increasing Lepaya's brand awareness;
  • Contribute to the improvement of our sales strategy;

REQUIREMENTS

In an ideal world, who would you be?

  • You are currently enrolled in a relevant Bachelor's or Master's program;

We value capabilities over formal experience, yet what would we love to see on your resume?

  • Previous experience in business development, sales, or acquisition; 
  • Previous experience with the HubSpot CRM system; 
  • Previous experience in working in a scale-up environment;
