Amsterdam’s UPRISE in April was a blast and our most daring festival to date. We now move our focus to our European tech festival to Dublin for our 6th epic edition. Our international team is loud, loving and eager to bring the festival back to Dublin. You need to be able to dive straight in and get your hands dirty selling the sell. We love what we do and so should you.
We are looking for an intern that wants to help the sales team approach amazing startups that fit to our value proposition. The perfect candidate is interested in sales and wants to learn about the dynamics of startups ecosystems.
Your main focus would be startup and enterprise scouting. The startup world is changing faster than ever and we need to source for the best companies available. You would follow a quantitative as well as a qualitative approach to reach a wide spectrum of potential companies to partner up with.
You would also be responsible for the technical implementation of sales data and work within CRM as well as on our website. We are looking for someone proactive who strives to continuously improve on utilized methods.
Next to helping the sales team, you can put your knowledge into practice and take charge of our pitch battle and own it as your individual project. This includes screening and auditing applicants, closing the deals, as well as preparation and organizing the conditions surrounding the battle.
Last but not least: UPRISE got attitude, and so should you! It is a plus if you got relevant experience and a perfect degree, but we still looking for character. Personality, social skills and the way you integrate into the team is most important.
