Job description

Who You Are

You are a sales professional with 1-5 years of experience, who is bright and driven, looking for a genuine opportunity where you can be with a company for a long time. In fact, you are GREAT, you are going places, so you are looking for a home where your commissions are uncapped, though you also need that base salary to pay immediate bills. You’re also looking for somewhere that allows you to move up internally, because you’ll need that, and to work with an interesting technical product that actually makes a real difference in the world. You care about helping others and your local neighborhood. You want a start-up atmosphere, but you also want stability in rocky times and good benefits, and you want to work with other great people who are fun and above all make you better than you ever thought you could be.

SumUp supports a diverse community of professionals with various backgrounds and lived experiences. There is no “perfect candidate” for this role. We are simply searching for people that are driven to succeed in helping SumUp continue delivering on our values and making our customers successful.

Over 3 million merchants use us because our products are good. This is going to require research however, and cold calling, and knocking on doors, and above all empathy and kindness for your customer’s needs.
