Account Executive Germany
Netherlands, Zuid-Holland, Den HaagSales
Are you familiar with sales in Germany and a native German speaker? Do you want to use your commercial talent to advance solar energy? Do you know how to excite even the most challenging customer with your proactive attitude? Then we are looking for you as Account Executive at Solar Monkey!
Welcome to the world of solar energy!
At Solar Monkey, our mission is to accelerate the transition to more solar energy. And in that, we make a lot of impact. A lot. Because we do so by providing thousands of customers with software that allows them to design, sell and monitor solar panel installations much more effectively. What used to take hours, they now do in minutes.
To sell our product, commercial talent is super important. That means you! As sales, you make sure we bring in new customers. If you meet your targets, you will help Solar Monkey and our impact grow faster. Our software now generates 350,000 offers a year, in a few years hopefully millions! You maintain contacts with the most important solar panel installers and resellers in the market. Don't have those contacts yet? Then you're not afraid to open doors. You represent Solar Monkey and everything we stand for. You do this professionally, but above all with a personal touch. We are looking for a go-getter who thrives in an environment with passion, ambition and freedom.
What else does that culture entail? We have done our best to describe that on our jobs page.
- Simple: achieve sales targets. You will work on different prospects in Germany, you will determine the focus in consultation with the Head of Sales. Do it in the way that works best for you, whatever works best. As long as you focus on long-term relationships that grow stronger over time. A prospect who does not become a customer today may become one in a year's time.
- Your (physical) presence in Germany is important to visit clients at least on a monthly basis, the specific Bundeslander to be determined together. Also, to stay connected in our fast-growing company, you should regularly visit the office in The Hague, Netherlands.
Why would you want to work for Solar Monkey?

- And finally: all that success we achieve benefits the whole team. You get Share Appreciation Rights at Solar Monkey which have the potential to increase significantly in value over time!
