Your opportunity at TrendWatching
We are urgently looking for a purpose-driven, ambitious Business Developer, based in or near Amsterdam, to join our international team and community. 
Working closely with our Head of Business Development, you will be responsible for turning client enquiries (we don't do cold calling!) into new Amplify accounts - we want to quickly grow the business now that we have a world-class platform that is ready to scale.

An entrepreneurial streak and a cosmopolitan mindset are a must, as our clients are based all over the world, while experience with selling SaaS services would be an absolute bonus.

In return, we promise you will make an impact, as well as learn and grow.

  • You care deeply about sustainability, equity, well-being, and organisational impact
  • You perform best in a multicultural & cosmopolitan, freelance-minded environment
  • You have excellent communication, consulting, and business development skills, as well as a very solid command of the English language, both spoken and written
  • You have good time and project management skills 
  • You are (beyond) detail-oriented
What's in it for you?
  • Contribute to a purpose-driven economy with a global impact
  • Competitive remuneration
  • Enjoy a flexible hybrid work model, with options to work remotely or from our coworking spaces in Amsterdam (we work both remote and together as a team)
  • Join a company that values and actualizes your ideas, reaching hundreds of thousands globally
  • Enhance your portfolio with a compelling narrative
  • Be part of a vibrant, global team
  • Start date: Immediately
  • Reports to: Head of Business Development 
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
