Sales Development Representative

full-time BridgeU London

At BridgeU, we make educational decisions data-driven through predictive analytics, and we use machine learning to better prepare students for the next stage of their educational and professional journeys. One of the top 20 Startups in Europe (by EdTech Europe), and having closed a large investment round ($3.5m) from top global investors, BridgeU is one of the most innovative, fast-growing Education Technology businesses in Europe.

What you’ll be doing:

As a Sales Development Representative (SDR), you will play a crucial role in demand generation for the sales team, who are responsible for building and capitalizing on relationships with secondary schools, global education companies, governments, and universities from around the world. You will research and identify target customers within our market and ideal customer profile.

You will report to the Senior Marketing Manager and will create targeted, personalized, outbound campaigns to reach new prospects, and will manage inbound leads as the first point of contact. The most important measure of success will be qualified meetings booked. We’re looking for someone who is not phone-shy, takes ownership of their targets and finds inventive ways to contribute to growing the business.

Youll be joining a smart, ambitious team, in an exciting, fast-growth environment. You will be a key hire in London and will have the opportunity to work closely with senior management, and influence how we continue to develop this part of our organisation.

What you’ll bring:

  • You’re smart, ambitious and motivated by reaching and exceeding new business targets.
  • You’re focused, detail-oriented and adaptable.
  • You’re curious and ready to learn and fully absorb the climate and concerns of the education technology industry.
  • You’re a strong communicator and effective team-player, and you are resilient in times of change
  • You’re excited about the global education problem we’re trying to solve, and at the thought of making a big impact on the business
  • You might speak other languages (particularly Spanish, French, Arabic)
  • You have the ability to sell a compelling vision of a technology platform that’s changing the way in which students plan their futures
  • 6+ months experience as a top performing SDR using a mixture of email, social media and phone is a nice-to-have, but we do provide training, so if you’re an ambitious graduate looking for your first role and you’re interested in EdTech, we still want to hear from you

Equal Opportunities:

We are a global team with a global mindset, cherishing and protecting diversity as one of our core values. We are always looking to diversify the talent in our team.

Applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion, belief, marriage or civil partnership. If you feel you don’t quite meet all the criteria in the job spec but have the potential to do the role, we’d still love to hear from you.

What we’ll provide:

  • Competitive salary - £23k - £25k base salary depending on experience, up to £30k OTE in year 1
  • Opportunities for flexible and remote working hours, encouraging everyone to have a healthy work-life balance
  • Annual offsite: we organise a retreat once a year where the whole company gets together
  • Regular socials and early finish Fridays once a month
  • Personal development: books, courses and conferences that can help you learn and grow
  • A comfortable office in Angel stocked with fruit, tea/coffee, snacks, ice creams and a drinks fridge
  • Career progression and development
  • Private health insurance (upon completion of probation)
  • Employer’s pension scheme
  • An open and democratic work culture where everyone can contribute, learn and teach
