Career opportunity with a fast-growing tech startup operating in Europe & Asia

UMAI provides restaurants with a CRM that helps them to get their customers back more often, save time and increase revenues by automating manual tasks.

Founded by the former MD of Foodpanda.sg, the largest food delivery service in Singapore, and a member of the founding-team of Nova Founders Capital, one of the largest company builders in South-East Asia.

    Your Responsibilities:

    • Responsibility for lead generation and acquisition of restaurant brands in Lisbon, Portugal.

    • Stay abreast of new openings, and attend important industry events, network with the industry

    • 1-5 years of sales experience

    • You’re goal-oriented and have superb organizational skills
    • Strong work ethic and ability to work in a fast-paced environment
    • You have an entrepreneurial way of thinking and interest or experience in project management or entrepreneurship
    • You have a keen interest in the F&B and/or startup world

    The ideal candidate & qualifications:

    • Experience with consultative selling, with a short sales cycle (ex. <1 month)
    • Experience with cold-calling (you will be mixing cold calling with doing walk-ins & email, etc)
    • Knowledge of restaurant operations is a plus or genuine interest in the restaurant industry
    • Lives in Lisbon, Portugal and able to travel for customer meetings
    • You have an entrepreneurial way of thinking and can own your own workstream

    What we offer:

    • Attractive sales commission
    • A dynamic and highly motivated team with flat hierarchies
    • Great working atmosphere with an international team coming from 14 nationalities
    • Challenging and diversified tasks with direct responsibility
