Account Executive

Job description


You connect thousands of people in meaningful ways. You combine your love for people and the technology that change our world of tomorrow.


If this sounds like the kind of thing that gets you out of bed in the morning, then you’re in luck - at One you will get to do this every day. And we're hiring.


We don’t want to gloat too much, but One is growing extremely fast. So many clients, double the candidates, and triple the expectations to be exceeded... That can only mean that we're looking for an Account Executive with a strong drive and clear communication skills to identify opportunities for our existing and potential partners.


as Account Executive at One:

  • Closely monitor the market and be responsible for applying the best opportunity prioritisation tactics to increase the opportunity to closed won/customer conversion rate and average deal size;
  • Be responsible for increasing the number of opportunities by collaborating and giving input to One’s SDR team;
  • Form new partnerships with scale-ups and venture capitals through building state of the art relationships;
  • Represent One at tech and scale-up events to drive new leads and opportunities;
  • Drive opportunities as quickly as possible through the Sales pipeline, reducing the average sales cycle duration;
  • Convert as many opportunities to customers while driving our NPS to new heights;
  • Give input and direction to enhance and improve the sales processes, content and technology stack continuously;
  • Helping One become the go-to company for digital scale-ups in Europe. You understand recruitment, and believe that the game needs to be changed.

The growth path at One is not fixed. You have the freedom to develop yourself personally, and you work together with a diverse group of people you can learn a lot from. And because we are a scale up ourselves, you yourself determine what role you want to play in One's growth over the coming years.



and why should you want to work here?

One is a startup that helps fast growing scale-ups around the world in hiring leadership talent. We work in fixed partnerships with scale-ups and venture capital firms, making it a completely different business model as compared to traditional recruitment companies. One is a young company, but it is built on more than 20 years of experience in the European tech scene. It is a diverse company, and we are open to welcoming talent from different backgrounds.


“You should start working at One if you want to take ownership of your own career, be part of something big and work together with a team of specialists in their field.”
