Business Development Representative
As a Business Development Representative at Dataiku, you will work closely with the Sales & Marketing Teams to identify target prospects and customers through a variety of online research methods. You will perform analysis of inbound and outbound prospects’ business and engage with these prospects by phone and/or email.
The purpose of this outreach is to set up introductory calls with target influencers and decision makers. In turn, your job is to make sure a majority of these calls become qualified opportunities for Dataiku Account Executives.
In order to do this job well, the Business Development Representative must be analytical, metrics driven, and able to identify business challenges and articulate the Dataiku value proposition to prospects. Professional judgment that allows you to carry conversation with C-Level and VP level executives at Fortune 500 companies is also a must.

- Collaborate with the sales team and marketing management to refine the sales process
- Previous experience in outbound marketing, cold calling, sales pitches, prospect research, general business development, and selling enterprise software is a plus but not a requirement
- You have some relevant experience and proven success in sales or business development in the software / tech industry or in a startup - also a plus, but if not - the idea excites you
