Recruitment process
For this position it starts with an intake call with our talent partner. After this you will have a role alignment interview with the VP of Sales in Europe.

Because we like to speak to qualified candidates right from the start we don't work with end dates for our positions. We will close the vacancy as soon as we find the right fit.

Applications from freelancers, employment agencies, and recruitment agencies are not wanted at this time.
