    OUR VALUES

    Our team strives to constantly improve itself following these values:

    • Make an Impact: We’re here to change the industry and we’re in it to win it. We’re incredibly focused and our main focus is on customer success. We boldly go out of our comfort zones, we support each other and we love doing what we do.

    • Thirst for Learning: We’re addicted to learning and we learn from everything. We embrace our failures as they’re something we can learn from and only help us to improve. We think differently and we know that change is good. We’re curious and innovation leads the way, we're constantly on the lookout for new ideas that can help our customers (and the world).

    • Diversity Rules: We’re proud to be a diverse team spread across the world. We empower the under-represented and we build a safe community for everyone to be themselves while holding each other to account when needs be. We use asynchronous communication as we’re a remote company and need to be aware that we’re not always online at the same time.

    • We're In This Together: As colleagues, with our customers, and with our communities, co-operation and collaboration is key. We help one another as much as we can and we care for each other. We celebrate our successes together and we strive to find the right balance in our lives.

    • Transparency First: We make all information as public as possible and we’re direct (as well as truthful) in all our communications. We don’t just explain what we’re doing but why we’re doing it. This is how we create positive relationships and move forward together.

    HOW WE WORK

    We're a 100% remote-native company. We make intensive use of tools like Slack or video conferencing. We try to find a good balance between focused work and communication or in other words between asynchronous and personal communication.

    We don’t have fixed expectations regarding working hours and it's normal for us to be able to take care of private matters during the day - e.g. visits to the doctor or picking up children from school.

    We meet four times a year in person: one five-day retreat and three two-day retrospective focused meetings.

    COMPENSATION

    For this particular job we are offering to pay between 80.000 € to 100.000 € based on experience and skills. Optionally you can get Virtual Shares from our Virtual Shares Options Program (VSOP) as part of your compensation. In addition, we offer 28 vacation days and €200/month co-working stipend. Since we currently work from 9 different countries (and counting), it's very difficult to offer consistent  benefits beyond that. We strive to find a good balance between local laws and conventions, and a general fairness. And we're always open to your suggestions.

    WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!

    If this job sounds interesting to you, please try to point out where you match to our requirements in a short tweet-style "why-me" to [email protected] and have your CV attached. Do you still have questions? Then don't hesitate to get in touch via the same address!

    What is Business Development at Doist?

    The Business Development team is responsible for all third party partnerships, contracts, sponsorships, customer development, sales related activities, and managing revenue focused programs we build internally. Our mission is to support the internal Doist teams, and ensure that we’re collectively hitting our revenue goals and north star metrics - often by exploring initiatives that are considered to be “outside the box”. We create partnerships and co-marketing campaigns to enhance brand awareness and encourage new user signups, and manage internal projects that drive new revenue streams. Additionally, we occasionally work closely with some of our customers to ensure smooth onboarding, create special offers, and conduct user research to assist the product teams. Business Development wears a lot of hats and collaborates with nearly all internal teams and our 3rd parties, so strong “soft skills” are necessary to thrive on this team.

    As a Business Development Junior at Doist, you’ll have the opportunity to be a big part of a small yet quickly growing team. In this role, you’ll have an immediate impact on the company and can help shape the evolution of the Business Development department. Reporting directly to the Head of Business Development, you’ll be the primary point of contact for some of our largest customers, our 3rd party service providers, and our co-marketing partners. Additionally, you’ll review sponsorship opportunities and assist with the development of our partnership, sales and channel marketing strategies. You’ll also have the opportunity to interact with various designers, engineers, marketers and the support team.

    Your communication skills, both written and oral, as well as your ability to identify incredible opportunities for revenue creation, are some of your greatest assets. You have an eagerness to learn and a willingness to assist where ever needed. The opportunity to “wear many hats” excites you.

    To thrive as a Junior Business Developer at Doist:

    • You have 1+ year of experience in business development, marketing, sales, customer success, project management, customer development, or similar.

    • You have experience delighting customers with thoughtful & empathetic customer service

    • You have excellent communication skills, written and oral, and are capable of presenting them in a clear and concise manner in a live environment

    • You are genuinely excited about the opportunity to learn on the job and willing to lend a hand wherever needed

    • The phrase “maximizing ROI” motivates & excites you

    • You’re data informed and familiar with SaaS metrics and terminology such as ARR, MRR, CLTV, churn, etc.

    • You’re a creative and confident self-starter that thinks outside the box. You don’t wait for directions, but instead take the initiative to create your own projects.

    • You’re passionate about subjects such as SaaS, productivity, startups, and remote work, and would feel comfortable working with 3rd parties associated with these topics.

    • You have experience conducting in-depth research and analysis, and summarizing and presenting your findings

    Requirements

    A complete application includes:

    • A resume or manually entered experience (you can choose your preference).

    • Thoughtful, thorough responses to all the application questions.

    Benefits

    We’re bootstrapped, profitable, and committed to building a sustainable company that will grow for decades to come. We’ve built a benefits package that invests in our employee’s long-term personal and professional growth and well-being. Here’s a sample of what that includes:

    • Competitive compensation.

    • Flexible schedule and location. This is a fully remote position, so you can work from wherever you please and on a schedule that works best for you. All you need is a computer and access to a stable internet connection (which we sponsor!).

    • Generous paid vacation + national holidays. You’ll receive 40 days of paid time off to use on vacation and holidays.

    • Paid parental leave. 18 weeks of paid maternity leave and 5 weeks of paid paternity/adoption leave.

    • Health & well-being stipend. You’ll have a monthly budget to spend on the things that keep you happy and healthy like a gym membership, books, snacks, internet, and health insurance.

    • Amazing people. Being a part of the Doist team means you get to work with incredibly diverse, talented people who also enjoy having fun!

    • Annual company retreats. Although we work remotely, we still enjoy bringing the whole team together to get to know each other, bond, and have face-to-face discussions in places like Spain (2015), Iceland (2016), Greece (2017), Chile (2018), and the Azores (2019).

    • Meaningful work. Working at Doist isn’t just about getting a job done; it’s about working together to positively influence people and teams all over the world.
