About LoopUp

LoopUp is a fast-growing software company, headquartered in Shoreditch, London’s vibrant tech hub. We floated on the London Stock Exchange in August 2016, where our market value has almost tripled in the space of just over a year.

The success of our software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, which helps business people host better remote meetings, has led to rapid expansion of our team and this is set to continue.

For the last eight years, we’ve exclusively recruited fresh commercial talent into the business. Many are new or recent graduates; others come with life experiences outside of the commercial world and are looking for a new challenge. We organise into mini teams of 6 or 7 people – we call them ‘pods’. The result is a committed, collaborative, healthily competitive and successful working environment.

At LoopUp, people work hard and you very much get out what you put in. We’re on an exciting journey and we invite you to apply to join us on the ride.

 

About the opportunity

We’re currently seeking German nationals to come and join our London team. While career progression choices remain open and flexible, a primary option after around 18 months of experience and personal development in the UK would be as part of our team that opens a new office in Germany.

Upon joining in London, you'll participate in an intensive training programme covering all aspects of the company, product and market. You'll begin by working in business development, using a range of high quality, value-added prospecting techniques to secure targeted opportunities for your team.

During your first year, you'll receive continued training and find yourself playing an increasing role in customer engagements in line with your learning. After around 10-18 months (depending on your progress), you’ll go through the next phase of intensive training and boot camps, with a view of moving into either a full sales or account management position within one of the pods.

Throughout your career at LoopUp, you'll receive continued career development support from our global management team. We have an array of role models who have come through this programme, including people who have accelerated rapidly into director-level positions and travelled widely around the global group. We’re a meritocracy. If you work hard and do well – with our help and support – there are no artificial limits to your speed of progress.

  

About you:

  • German first language or bilingual
  • Fully fluent in both written and spoken English
  • Passionate about working in a fast-paced, high-growth environment
  • Hungry to work hard, learn and progress
  • A go-getter who will put themselves forward and make things happen
  • Pride in what you do, and desire to exceed expectations
  • Willing to learn and take feedback
  • A natural communicator
  • Professional, but fun
  • Educated to at least degree level or equivalent in any discipline
  • Right to work in the UK
