Does the prospect of closing deals with industry giants such as Starbucks, IBM, and The Economist fill you with utter excitement? Nodding at your screen? Then it sounds like we’ve got what you’re looking for.



As a Usabilla Business Development Manager, you’ll stand amongst the proud frontline of our company. You’re the first touch point for clients as you proactively reach out to prospects, follow-up with leads, and close deals; building lasting relationships with each interaction.

  • You’ll generate, respond to, and develop qualified leads through both inbound and outbound calls, emails, and other resourceful means
  • Collaborating with a whole bunch of talented colleagues, from Marketeers to Engineers, from both the New York, Paris, and Amsterdam office
  • As a new branch of such a thriving SaaS company, the potential for growth within Usabilla is exponentiate. You’ll be in a creative environment supported by a structure that encourages serious innovation and development


Your skills:

  • You’re a native English speaker, preferably living in NYC area
  • A relevant Bachelor degree with 2-5 years commercial experience (B2B is a big plus!)

  • You have a keen interest in the tech industry
  • We’re growing fast as new opportunities continue to arise, a flexible and enthusiastic attitude will ensure you keep up with the pace
