Junior Business Developer

  • Rotterdam, Netherlands
  • Full-time

Company Description

Kick-start your business career with a global leader in the Industrial Automation market

Would you like to help grow a business that makes some of the most recognised solutions in its market, including cool stuff like cybersecurity? How about working alongside a diverse bunch of colleagues and being trained to become a certified sales engineer? Read on, friend.

Job Description

Let’s be clear. We’re not looking for the perfect candidate (we don’t believe in unicorns, although we’re pretty convinced that UFOs exist). What we need is a Junior Business Developer who is keen to develop personally and professionally. Someone who’s willing to go the extra mile to help colleagues achieve common goals and increase sales revenue. 


Sure, it would be nice if you have some relevant experience, especially in industrial automation. We’d also be happy if you’re familiar with the entire sales process and have a commercial or technical degree. Plus, you need to be fluent in English as we’re a global business.

More essential to us is your ability to work under pressure. Most of your time will be spent working closely with clients, understanding their needs, proposing solutions and building rapport. You’ll get all the support you need from us, of course. We won’t leave you to sink or swim. But you should be prepared to work to targets, and spend extended periods working independently (mainly on the phone). 

You’d be great for this position if you can:

  • switch smoothly between different situations wherever your support is needed;
  • stay on course despite those inevitable setbacks, distractions and rejections;
  • deal calmly with ad hoc questions being thrown at you by clients and sales engineers;
  • enter data with a high degree of accuracy and draft a decent report in English;
  • take ownership of any problems you spot in order to resolve them.

A commitment to learning and a drive to succeed is much more important to us than your qualifications...

Additional Information

What will you get from us in return for all this awesomeness? A chance to work with cross-functional teams in a truly international setting; mentoring and a clear path to progression; and an enthusiastic and forward-thinking CEO (he forced us to put that last bit in). You’ll also get: 

  •  investment in your ongoing education, including professional certifications;
  •  comprehensive training in sales, marketing, management, operations and PR; 
  • a handsome salary and all the usual secondary benefits, including pension;
  •  a workspace in Rotterdam, the most vibrant and multi-cultural city in the Netherlands.

Of course, we’re not all work and no play because that would make us incredibly boring. So, when we’re not creating unique and easy-to-use solutions for all kinds of vital industries, you can find us supporting our local pub on Friday nights, putting on summer BBQs, or taking part in the annual Rotterdam Marathon. Participation in extra-curricular activities is always voluntary but enjoying your job (most of the time) is compulsory at Procentec!
