Extra Ordinary

Outbound Sales Development Specialist

We are a team of ordinary people, doing extraordinary things.

We started Kontakt.io in 2013 with an #ExtraOrdinary goal: to help the visually impaired navigate public spaces. Soon we’ve learned that any individual or business can benefit from beacon technology. Over the years, we’ve attracted over 14,000 clients and 8 million dollars of venture capital, but we’re still hungry for more. We want to learn more. Change more. And achieve more. We wouldn’t be able to revolutionize the way companies and people interact with each other, without #ExtraOrdinary people. Become one!

Your Role

With the aim of disrupting maturing markets with new technology, we are building out a team of Outbound Sales Development Specialists that will be generating and nurturing new business opportunities for the Sales Team. As an Outbound SDS, you will be hunting for target accounts, reaching out and nurturing leads, and most importantly – generating pipeline. In this process you will learn and optimize the art of ‘outbound outreach’, developing your sales skills and using your experience to drive Kontakt.io’s growth. You will be part of of a highly dedicated and hungry outbound unit, with fast career development based on performance. Responsibilities include:

  • Working closely with the Sales Development Lead to develop outreach strategies and account profiles
  • Researching and building new accounts (i.e. finding target accounts and contact information)
  • Developing highly relevant pitches and messages based on account profiles
  • Cold call, Email and LinkedIn outreach
  • Managing and nurturing prospects from lead generation through to qualified opportunities
  • Closing small value deals and creating high value deal pipeline for Account Executives
  • Achieving or exceeding monthly quotas of qualified opportunities generated

This job is part of a 12-18 month sales development program. During this period you master B2B tech sales development and receive internal and external trainings as well as have the chance to experience high-level executive sales meetings. If successful you get the chance to move to an Account Executive role. 


Who are you?

First: A Hustler. Difficult, high pressure environments are your forte. Your mindset: targets are not to be achieved but exceeded. Rejection? That’s a learning tool to develop. You don’t need to be told to do something, you simply do it. Passion to grow and fulfill your goals are the essence of your motivation. 

Second: A Closer. Connecting with people of all seniority levels comes naturally. Persuasiveness is built into your character. You know what to say ‘on the spot’ without thinking twice. Matching customers pain points with what you’re selling? You can do that in an instant. Ability to build and nurture relationships is your strong suit.


Further Qualifications

  • Outstanding interpersonal and communication skills & organisational discipline are a must
  • University BA/BSc degree
  • Relevant sales experience  and a true sales mindset
  • Must be able to grasp and communicate about technology products
  • Knowledge of various outbound lead generation tools is a big advantage
  • Experience in outbound sales prospecting would be a big plus
  • Fluent written and spoken English is a must. Fluent knowledge of any additional language – Spanish, Italian, German, French, etc. would be a big advantage.
