Seamore might just be Europe’s hottest (or coolest) food startup. Our small company has managed to do what no one has done before: to get (normal) people to eat seaweed as an everyday food. After proving the point that it could be done we’re now ready to get the whole world to taste and embrace the future of tasty, healthy & sustainable food. And that requires seriously skilled, outrageously talented, menacingly motivated, humongously hungry Sales Power.
Seamore is a 4-year-old food company based in Amsterdam. Since 2015 it is leading a revolution: to turn seaweed into an everyday food as part of a global shift towards plant-based eating. After rocking the international food scene with its now iconic pure (100% seaweed) products, I sea pasta and I sea bacon, the company is now making seaweed even more easy with new hybrid (35-50% seaweed) products: the world’s 1st seaweed wrap, seaweed bread and many other exciting products being tested and tasted as you read this.
And when R&D gives you marvellous products, there is only one thing left to do: get them onto the shelves and the menus across all Europe!
As our Junior Sales Manager, you will be vital to drive and realise this ambition. You will assist Seamore’s sales team along the entire sales process taking place in both the retail and the food service channel. You will conduct market research, generate new leads, keep the pipeline full, finetune the perfect product pitch, gather insights from store managers, restaurant owners, chefs, create best practices, develop and monitor KPIs, ensure the sales team is on track with the sales goals, do any necessary administrative work including filing reports and forms, identify bottlenecks and suggest sales process improvements.
