Meet the team

Our main challenge is to get around the table with prospects in a very competitive market; that’s why we need your creativity! In order to achieve this you will work closely together with:

Richelle, our 26-year-old creative sales lady who’s specialty is to think out of the box in order to bring in new clients and grow exisiting business.

Martijn, our 31-year-old sales pro who will do whatever it takes to grow our business as long as he can justify it in front of his three children.

Stijn, our 33-year-old cross-fit fanatic who’s heading our sales team and is responsible for ensuring that we have enough awesome projects for our consultants to work on.

You’ll also work with Bob, our 31-year-old CEO and founder of WAES. He is to the point & creative, and likes to punch the boxing ball in our office.


Why you will survive

As there is so much happening within WAES right now, you need to be a true team player. You will need a vast amount of entrepreneurism and instantly take ownership of your accounts. You are informal and to the point in your communication. You are an extravert with the right amount of self-confidence. You always see opportunities and chase them in all possible ways, but you always set the bar and stick to it when it comes to quality.

To be successful, you have at least a Bachelor Degree and over three years of experience in account management (consultative selling), preferably in secondment and/or consultancy. Obviously, you have great communication skills in both Dutch and English.

A unique opportunity to set your personal mark on the scale-up phase of WAES! All of this surrounded with driven, entrepreneurial colleagues who are willing to jump in when you need it. Your home base will be our office in the Innovation Powerhouse. An urban jungle in Eindhovens' hotspot Strijp-T, formerly in use as a power plant and now home of high-tech innovation companies.

Personal growth is important to us. We make this real with a generous personal development budget and a culture where we expect you to experiment, endeavour new solutions, fail, and learn from it!

We aim high, so the right amount of unwinding is important to us as well! Join our amazing everyday lunch, join our Friday beer, and challenge your colleagues in our pinball tournament! ;-)
