Our dealers are located in 60 countries around the globe, and you will be playing an active role in our annual international exhibitions and events.

As a Sales Manager, you are part of our compact sales team and will be reporting directly to our Head of Sales.

    • You are resilient and not afraid of challenges.

    • You have excellent interpersonal skills and a client-centered way of working.

    • You are at home in an international environment and are able to network and build strong and long-lasting business relationships.

    • You are a natural team player but are also able to take ownership of your own work and manage your time skillfully.

    • You are driven and motivated to join and contribute to our rapidly growing business.

What we offer

We offer you a comprehensive and exciting role in a fast-growing, international company where everyone’s opinion is valued, and creative ideas are always actively encouraged.
