(Editor’s note: This post of curated careers was updated on 4 November with an opening at JW Player.)
This is the third in a series of curated careers posts … the coolest jobs here in Eindhoven, Europe’s most important – and most under-the-radar – deep-tech hub, as well as in other Dutch innovation centers.
Dispatches posts a lot of career opportunities. What’s different about this series is we’re recommending companies we know, have covered or we actually work with. So we know these teams … the actual people and their corporate cultures. They’re cool and you’ll want to hang with them. So, this is an endorsement or we wouldn’t include them.
All of these companies employ highly skilled internationals and all require candidates to speak fluent English.
(To be clear, this is not a paid endorsement because we don’t get anything for this beyond the pleasure of their company. Which actually means a lot to us.)
Accerion is a fast-growing scale-up in the right business at the right time building positioning technology for mobile robots and other industrial equipment.
Located in Venlo on the border with Germany, they’re close to most of the big innovation centers including Eindhoven and Düsseldorf, and they’re growing quickly despite the pandemic, adding several engineers and other staffers so far in 2020.
Accerion has two openings:
Your mission is to develop new opportunities in the dynamic industrial automation and mobile robotics market globally. You’d also be an evangelist for this young company, full of young international talent, getting people excited about Accerion’s value, then turning prospects into clients.
You’d also manage relationships with existing customers, supporting them and developing the Accerion technology in their products and organizations. In that role, you’d gather customer feedback and insights, then pass them on to the Accerion team for product development and improvements, offerings and marketing.
You’d have the authority to negotiate multi-level deals and large accounts, manage and develop an international worldwide partner-network for Sales and Service and manage the support sales team including Customer Success Engineers for initial sensor implementation. So tech talents are a plus.
