Sales Director France

FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM

Every day, millions of people rely on WeTransfer to share their creative ideas. So, the work we do matters. Come and be a part of it.

It is a great time for Creativity!

We built WeTransfer to provide an elegant experience for people who want a trustworthy and hassle-free way of transferring files. When we first decided that a platform should have ‘non-traditional’ advertising, people thought we were crazy (they still do!). We could have plastered our pages with annoying, intrusive banners and hit the jackpot. But we took the long road instead, our service is now not just about sharing files, it’s about sharing experiences and creativity.

About the role

Every month we run over 100 international advertising campaigns, the French market being an important one, and this number is growing rapidly. We work with appealing brands directly, with their media and creative agencies, to get beautiful campaigns up and running. Several of our campaigns have won prizes, like the FKA Twigs campaign which has won 7 awards last year.

Our ambition in France is high, both in business growth and the opportunity to showcase our mission. We believe that we can help our advertisers maximise brand impact through our unique platform, by engaging our influential audience with campaigns they will care about.

Our mission is to create meaningful experiences for a premium creative audience through our campaigns. Our in-house creative agency and editorial team will be important sidekicks, to elevate advertising to the level we require.

For these reasons, success in this position requires a blend of strong consultative, entrepreneurial and creative skills, and the passion and confidence to turn bold, unique ideas into reality.

Who we are looking for?

WeTransfer is looking for a strong, experienced sales and marketing professional to help sell our advertising solutions to major brand advertisers, directly or through agencies, in the French market.

We are looking for someone with extensive knowledge of Brand Advertising, ideally with experience of Digital Transformation and a background in the creative agency industry. Someone who can build strong relationships and execute on a business plan while operating independently and confidently. We need someone with experience and measurable success in selling digital solutions into traditional and/or digital brand marketing departments.

We are looking for someone with:

  • Senior experienced background in media & marketing
  • Deep understanding of the dynamics of the French advertising market, incl. stakeholders like agencies, clients and sales houses
  • Experience with bringing local advertisers to a EMEA/global level
  • High intellectual curiosity and hunger to learn in a fast pace environment
  • Proven track record in delivering strong financial results in terms of revenue and growth
  • Eagerness to go beyond, knowing how to translate barriers into challenges and always looking for new opportunities
  • Proven ability presenting to and influencing top level decision makers and key stakeholders
  • Experience supporting the execution of account growth strategy and action plans as part of a team
  • Project management capabilities, with experience in completing projects with minimal direction and high attention to detail.
  • Effective and creative problem solving and decision-making skills
  • Based in Amsterdam, with frequent travel to Paris/France (25%)
  • Fluent in French & English
