Sweep is hiring an Account Executive in Switzerland, tasked with driving Sweep’s growth engine by building relationships with prospective clients and turning them into happy customers. 

 

Our ideal candidate is an experienced salesperson, with a strong background in sustainability and the ESG space.

 

We raised a total $100M in funding and are accelerating our international marketing and sales efforts in order to make a difference. Climate change is the defining issue of our time. By empowering ever more companies with technology that helps manage their climate impact, we believe Sweep is in a unique position to build a better future for all of us. 

 

Sounds interesting. What would I be doing?

 

You will lead sales activities in Switzerland and across Europe and become a partner and key resource for the Swiss climate community.

 

To be more specific, this includes:

  1. Grow Sweep’s customer base in Switzerland and beyond 🤝
    • Acquire new Sweep customers in Switzerland and across Europe.
    • Enable consistent growth by securing new accounts, while also identifying revenue opportunities within our established client base.
  2. Ensure Sweep delivers value to our customers 🌱
    • Collaborate with the sales engineering and the success teams to ensure that Sweep customers love our tool, achieve real emission reductions, and invite new users through Sweep Connect.
    • Keep on top of evolving ESG industry trends, in order to propose related solutions to our customers. 
  3. Help scale and improve our sales process ⚙️
    • Manage the data of our clients in our CRM and collaborate with our Marketing and SDR team to qualify the leads.
    • Develop outbound strategies to create and nurture opportunities.
  4. Build our network and ensure that Sweep is top-of–mind 📣
    • Work closely with the marketing, success and brand team to make Sweep the number one provider when it comes to carbon management and climate action.
    • Host events, webinars and trainings to introduce Sweep to new audiences.
    • Become the focal point and an active contributor to the (Swiss) climate scene.

 

That sounds just right for me. What do I need to bring?

 

Glad you asked. This is who we’re looking for:

 

Qualifications 🏆

  • 6+ years of sales experience
  • Experience in SaaS, ideally in the B2B Enterprise space
  • Experience and deep understanding of the ESG/Sustainability industry 
  • Ability to develop and execute account plans for complex organizations
  • Ability to lead intricate negotiations
  • Outstanding verbal and written communication skills in (Swiss) German and English

 

Qualities 🧠

  • You’re an empathetic team player that is great at building lasting relationships, both internally and externally
  • A strategic thinker, who sees both the big picture and the smaller underlying mechanics
  • An expert communicator, with a knack for turning complex things into simple, engaging and fun interactions.
  • A hands-on problem solver, self-motivated with a glass half-full attitude
  • An entrepreneurial mind, ready to launch and fail and iterate
  • Attuned to remote collaboration, using digital tools and meticulously documenting work
  • A desire and ambition to grow, mentor and support other members on the team

 

Copy that. And what’s in it for me?

 

You will be joining an exciting young business that has the humble ambition to change the world. With a proven track record in starting companies, we’re hitting the ground running and aim to have an impact fast. Joining this journey allows you to really help shape our path.

 

You will join a dynamic (mostly remote) team of engineers, business minds, creatives and carbon experts spread across Europe. We’re a fun bunch of people that want to work hard, and enjoy ourselves while doing so. And we believe in creating a calm environment, that knows that life is not just work, and we’ll all be doing better work because of that. We’re big believers in creating successful businesses that are good for everyone, including society and the planet. That’s why we’re a “Entreprise à Mission” and a Certified B Corp.

 

We think this might be the ride of our lives. And hopefully yours, too.
