    • Experience in SaaS B2B Sales in the UK market
    • Excellent communication and relationship building skills
    • A confident personality that finds new, creative ways to generate business
    • Know-how of finance processes is a plus
    • Expertise in digital technologies/ FinTech experience is a plus
    • Native English, other languages are a plus

What you'll get:

    • We love to see people thrive! You'll have the resources to own and be able to shape things from day one
    • Work closely with the founders and the leadership team
    • We’re fast - quickly measure and learn the impact of your work
    • Grow - we’re growing fast, and you’re the expert. Help us shape our growth!
    • Flexibility - everyone has their own highly productive times - you have found your sweet spot? Perfect, we look at the output and not at what time it was produced
    • Remote - we enjoy in-person sessions, but we have also learned (thank you Covid) how to be efficient with remote working
    • Competitive scale-up package
We are keen to get to know you. Apply with your CV and/or LinkedIn profile and a few words on why you would like to join Yokoy. We look forward to your application!
