Preferred experience

👟 About you

We know that perfect candidates don’t exist. Even if not all of this applies to you, we’d love to learn more about you.

  • You’re creative and innovative. You love to invent creative ways to attract more leads. You truly believe that the way of buying B2B products has changed and you want to make the difference in a competitive market by adding value to our audience.
  • You have strong communication skills. You have a proven track record of overachieving SQL’s quotas from Linkedin sequences and/or phone selling. You love to A/B test your sales messages so that they resonate and are relevant to our audience.
  • You’re data-driven and analytical. You had reported on sales funnel metrics and solved problems within the sales funnel without all necessary information. You’ve been able to use data to measure the business impact of solutions.
  • You are a doer. You want an operational role and not only supervising and managing. You are motivated to keep on spending at least 80% of your time reaching out prospects and closing deals.
  • You are customer focus. You have the ability to put yourself in customer’s shoes, showing empathy and doing the right thing for the long term instead of taking shortcuts.

💭 How we work

  • Trust & Ownership: Take, own and implement decisions to build Leeway from scratch. We are not rushing to market but focus on a quality product and the little big details.
  • Flexible working hours: We don’t run meetings before 2pm. We use meetings when needed and not per default.
  • Think big: We believe that the status quo is meant to be broken and we will always encourage you to dare.

Recruitment process

🌈 Our stance

  • We stand against racism and fully support all genders. We are actively seeking to create a diverse work environment because teams are stronger with different perspectives and experiences.
  • We don’t look for shiny CVs and we don’t really care about your degrees. We like atypical profiles and self-taught people. We like people who take risks, even if they fail, more than those who don’t.

🌱 Our offer

  • Full time contract
  • 36 000€ - 72 000€ compensation + variable pay (On-target earnings)
  • 0.1% - 0.4% stock options of Leeway: We want everybody to be a true owner in Leeway.
  • Visa sponsorship available and your relocation will be covered

🎁 Benefits & perks

  • 25 paid vacation days per year (PTO)
  • Easy remote work policy: We are an international team and believe in co-located teams. So if you want to work from home or from another place in Europe for some time, no need to take vacation.
  • Get your perfect setup: You’ll receive all new equipment including a laptop, monitor, headset and any other accessories you need to do your best work.
  • Lunch on us: As french founders, lunch is one of our favorite moment of the day. We eat lunch together as a team from our favorite restaurants around (trust me, french cuisine is worth it 😉) and we also have a full kitchen if you’re into cooking! Otherwise there’s plenty of fruits and other healthy food to go around!
  • Central and lofty office: Our modern office is located in Sentier, in the center of Paris with plenty of great things around. You’ll find a lot of design references and we encourage you to add your personal touch to feel like home.
  • Company health insurance policy: Leeway offers top of the line benefits, including health, dental, and vision insurance.
  • Parental leave: Leeway believes in #ParentalAct and offers new parents 4 weeks of paid time away to spend quality time with family. Biological, adoptive and foster parents are all eligible for parental leave.
