Business Development intern

Main Partners

We are a tech startup based in Amsterdam with strong investor backing enabling us to go superfast!

Our startup is disrupting how people do market research by given them direct access to industry experts for 1:1 video calls to pick their brains. Our technology is able to line up industry experts on any client search, in any country and any sector. Our reach spans >400 million expert profiles and our proprietary matching and vetting technology delivers always the best matches. Many clients have already started using us (actually most that recruit on this SEFA platform are our clients…) since our launch but we need (you for) more firing power to go faster!

Investors say: the next 10 years will be about cracking access to ‘knowledge’ and will be the gold of tomorrow. Well, we’re on it 🙂

This intern position is a cross-functional role, where you’ll be our ‘Business Development Champ’ making sure our clients are served with the best industry experts matching their needs. In this respect, our automated technology is doing most of the work, however your ‘smart brain’ is needed to closely monitor quality going in, and going out.

The insights you obtain as our Business Development Champ are highly valuable to our development roadmap and technology innovation. That’s why you’ll be a key contributor to ‘Growth Hacking’ development flights where your insights and ideas will help us solve for painpoints and optimize our users’ journey across all stages of our platform.

As part of the initial startup team, you’ll work closely with the founders and product development team and you will be exposed to all aspects of the business.

Depending on your personal interests and background, you’ll also be made responsible for some additional specific tasks such as data analytics (user behavior, structured data), financial analyses, support in making investor presentations and a lot of other possible stuff.
