German speaking Business Development Director - Oslo

Attensi is expanding rapidly and we are now looking for a VP Sales to help us grow our business in the German market!

Attensi is one of Norway's fastest growing technology companies. We make 3D gamified simulation training for large corporations, and are a global leader in our field. Our solutions create a realistic ‘learning by doing’ environment in a virtual 3D setting and makes training fun and engaging!  

Attensi was established in Norway in 2012 and our training is now being used by global brands in more than 100 countries and in 20 different languages. We are now over 100 employees across Norway and the UK and continue to expand rapidly.

Who are you?

To support and expand on our existing international growth, we are currently seeking an energetic and proven VP Sales with native-level German language skills, to join our team in Oslo. 

Our dream candidate wants to become part of an exciting and rapidly growing scale-up that is already a global leader in its field. You will use your knowledge and experience of working with the German market to further advance Attensi's business in Germany. This might mean that you will be spending a significant amount of time in Germany, and potentially in time relocate there. 

This position is considered a key role in our growth and will be working closely with Attensi's leadership team to expand our business in Germany. Based on our experience from the work we are doing with existing German customers we believe there is enormous untapped potential in this region.

You will have:

  • BSc degree or higher
  • At least 8 years' work experience, preferably with with SaaS products
  • Previous success with selling to CxOs and Directors of large corporations
  • Experience selling to- og working with Industrial clients (automotive, energy, production, shipping etc.)
  • Native or full proficiency German language skills

Advantageous to have:

  • Consultant background OR proven experience of success with consultative selling

What will you do?

You will leverage your expertise in sales, business development and the German market, to expand Attensi's business in Germany. Building off our existing customers base and experience in the region you will proactively bring in, and land, new Attensi customers.

  • Developing a target list of ideal customers, and actively pursuing meetings with key decision makers in those companies
  • Attending industry events and exhibitions
  • Utilising existing sales channels and identifying and exploring new potential sales channels
  • Mapping and specifying organisational challenges, training and development needs together with the customer
