Holdbar was founded by two experienced tourisme and hospitality tech entrepreneurs who are behind Truestory, which is the leading Scandinavian experience platform today. Based on a closed beta-loop with an initial Holdbar product in 2020 and 2021, proving strong potential and product-market fit, we aim to build the next big, Scandinavian software success.
The first final version of Holdbar was launched in January 2023 and the company is now backed by a renowned venture capital fund and experienced B2B SaaS angel investors.
The goal is the create an amazing product and make a real impact in one of the fastest-growing industries in the world, and, coupled with our experience, build a solid and fast-growing company. We're in it and committed to make the most of it, and we want to work with people who are equally passionate and ambitious.
Our core values are ambition, trust, freedom and having a focus on action.
To reach our vision and succeed with our mission, we are looking for an experienced, talented commercial and sales professional to join Holdbar as one of the first key employees as Sales Director.
About the role
To make Holdbar the success we know it can be, we need to build, nurture and grow a market-winning sales flow using both inbound and outbound channels.
We know that we have built a platform that can benefit the target audience and the experience operators of the world. Still, we need to ensure they know about Holdbar and understand the value the platform can bring to the company.
In close partnership with our CMO, you will be responsible for the overall customer acquisition flywheel of Holdbar, ensuring that leads are carefully taken from interest to action - and that we hit our ambitious growth targets in terms of customer growth.
From more or less day one, you will be expected to do active selling to learn, distill and build the Holdbar Sales Framework effectively, which you will then use to teach and empower a small team of sales colleagues.
What we expect as a baseline to grow
- Danish or Swedish as your native language and fluent in English
- A lot of ambition - personally and on behalf of the company and brand that you represent
- Open-minded and self-reflective
- Proven track record in outbound sales and in working with SaaS sales flow and processes
- Experience with hiring and empowering people (high EQ/emotional intelligence)
- Eager, direct, and competitive, but still friendly and empathetic
We want to work with a candidate who can set the right example, show what best practice looks like, challenge his/her team members, and still be respected and liked as a leader and colleague.
Why join Holdbar?
You should join Holdbar if you want the ride of your career as one of the first employees in a future big, international software company.
You should join if you also believe that the perfect recipe for a job is ambition, personal growth, freedom, and trust.
And last but not least, if you want to work helping companies in an industry that is growing like crazy. That is the perfect, much-needed antidote to our materialistic, over-consuming society.
Besides the above, we want to offer the perfect candidate a fair salary package, health insurance, and potentially stock warrants.
