This programme is not for the faint-hearted. We bring high potential talent into a hyper-growth fintech company, and help people to grow by working as a part of our Sales team.
Most of us felt that too, but then we learned what a career in sales actually can be and – or, should be. At Pleo, sales is learning about how businesses are run: it's about learning and developing business acumen, it's nurturing executive presence, it's perfecting your negotiation skills, and then learning how to teach this knowledge to your teams. These are all life skills that we know you will value for the rest of your career and life.
We also aren't the type of company that encourage "do whatever it takes to seal a deal". This is not The Wolf of wall street (but we wouldn't mind if Leo decided to pop in now and then).
We want that too. We will give you the toolkit to learn, grow, and demonstrate how you succeed in an Account Executive role. In a matter of months, our current Account Executives have progressed into more senior roles, and soon get the chance to transfer their knowledge onto new teammates.
Once you know how to succeed in this part of the business, you will be given the chance to build your own team. Your focus will be on how to help your colleagues to succeed, as well as owning the revenue contribution you will make to your market's success.
We don't accept sharp elbows and we don't want a boiler room. However, we do encourage having a winner mentality – success to us means always holding ourselves accountable to our own high standards, setting goals and achieve them and to always strive to win together.
We consider ourselves trusted advisors to finance teams, C-levels, and founders to inform and educate them of how we can help them change the way they work in their companies.
Our Future Leaders are hired because of the potential they represent, not the experience they bring. We spend our efforts bringing in people who can handle a steep learning curve, thrive in a fast-paced environment, and can step into leadership roles faster than others could expect.
