Seamore seeks

Sales intern


Wanted: Sales intern

Seamore might just be Europe’s coolest food startup. Our small company has managed to do what no one has done before: to get (normal) people to eat seaweed. We started off with our by now iconic products: I sea pasta (a seaweed which looks like and tastes like…tagliatelle!) and I sea bacon (a seaweed which turns into green bacon when fried). In 2018 we launched a game changer: I sea wraps! Made with 50% super sea vegetable, it’s the world’s 1st seaweed wrap. The ultimate way to enjoy seaweed!

The role

The role

As our sales intern, you will be in charge of getting I sea wraps on the menu of the trendiest restaurant chains across Europe. You are the one to select them, research them, study their menu, contact them, visit them, make them enthusiastic, and then, boom!, put I sea wraps on their menu and turn them into their bestseller!

You’ll work closely with Angela (Sales) to make propositions your prospects cannot refuse. You’ll collaborate with Laurélie (Marketing) to make your proposals mind-blowing, and to give publicity to those who get on board! Next stop is… Riccardo (Operations)! He will help you making sure your clients get what they need and when they need it. Last but not least, don’t forget to give Shuchen (R&D) your input on the best price and product mix.

You, and what we sea in you

  • Passion to sell.
  • Persistence and a spirit of never giving up!
  • Experience and understanding for B2B communication.
  • Capability to convince (sometimes) old-fashioned buyers of our innovative products – negotiate your heart out.
  • Experience with Excel is a must.
  • Structured and organized way of working – not to miss any opportunities!
  • Analytic capabilities to analyse sales data and learn from it.
  • Self-starter, independent, never afraid to ask questions when necessary.
  • Very good understanding of English, bonus for other languages.
  • A self-starter and independent worker who knows when to ask questions.

For you, what we offer

  • An innovative, but most of all a young, informal and ambitious team with work experience.
  • A place where you can help create marketing history and read about it.
  • You’ll be surrounded by a team with different backgrounds and nationalities (French, Italian, Chinese).
  • Daily fruit, lunch, and Thursday-celebration; if you’re lucky… team activities.
  • Work closely with Seamore’s Founder Willem, international word of mouth and social marketing guru.
  • An internship-company that was officially crowned most innovative food start-up of 2015!
  • Months of hands-on experience that will make your CV a job-magnet.

Practicalities that we offer:

  • Normal internship compensation + all the I sea pasta, I sea bacon, I sea wraps and all kinds of other (sea)food you can eat.
  • Minimum of 5 months available.
  • Start as soon as possible.

This is one for you?
