Role Summary

Your main task is to reach out to small-to-medium sized, multi-day tour operators, to get them to use WeTravel. We have leads for you to contact but we also expect you to use your own knowledge and research to find potential leads on your own.

You should have a can-do attitude, be very highly organized, target-driven, self-motivated and hungry to sell. You will also uphold our four core values:

- Be resourceful - strive for new wins every day
- Be honest - default to transparency
- Be respectful - treat others like you want to be treated

- Bachelor’s degree or equivalent
- Fluent in English (please mention in your resume if you are fluent in any other language)
- Confidence to pick up the phone and make outbound, cold calls
- Determination to learn and to overcome obstacles


We will be really excited if you also have:
- Some experience in inside sales via emails and calls - we will also teach you a lot!
- Prior experience in B2B technology sales, especially sales to small companies
- Prior experience or existing network in the travel industry
- Knowledge of Hubspot CRM
