Your role in the Company

SameSystem is growing radially in the German market, and we are looking for a representative that can handle our daily activities in this hugely potential market. You will:

  • Be overall responsible for the German market, handling all our German customers from our office in the Netherlands
  • Influence our approach to the entire market, with reference directly the CEO of SameSystem
  • Work  closely  together  with  management  and  operations  teams  of  some  of  Europe’s  most successful and progressive retailers.
  • Make a real difference for the clients, giving honest advice with no hidden agendas. SameSystems product is all-inclusive, with no options to upsell, and you will truly be helping the customers to achieve the best results possible.

We are based on personal freedom and own initiatives, while still encouraging teamwork.

Your responsibilities

  • Ensure smooth operations for both potential and existing clients, and maximise their gains in close dialogue with their operations
  • Optimising our system to run optimally in the German market
  • Conduct training sessions, both online and onsite, for new and existing customers
  • Sometimes working on and creating user guides, when necessary

At SameSystem we are highly motivated, and understand the importance of fast and reliable service. We expect everyone to take responsibility for their own tasks as well as feeling a commitment to the company.

Personal qualifications

We are looking for someone that will take ownership of the activities in the market, and act with the same level of commitment as if it was your own company. With the level of autonomy the position contains, you are as thorough as you are committed, being your own top critic and making sure everything you do live up to the highest standards.

You will be responsible for the market, so you will be responsible for carrying out all the necessary work initially, and a high degree of self-motivation is important. Being able to define your own workday is something that inspires you.

As your primary role is setting up and understanding our clients, who are all top retailers, you have a background in retail and have extensive knowledge of all parts of retail operations.

You find it easy to talk to people and are able to build relations with many people simultaneously. Sales to new clients is not your primary task, but you will be expected to participate in sales, and are comfortable being part of negotiations.

You are flexible and don’t postpone until tomorrow, what needs to be done today. Our clients are retailers, and they cannot wait for solutions, as turnover could be at stake. You feel it is natural to keep working until a case is solved, and will also travel when it helps a case.

You will be responsible for handling support in the German market, but will have a support team to go back to and get help from. As the market grows, your role in supporting the customers will be reduced and taken over by dedicated colleagues on a growing team.


Mandatory qualifications

  • Impeccable written and oral German
  • Fluent in written and oral Dutch
  • The ability to communicate in both written and oral English
  • Thorough understanding of retail operations in Germany
  • A flair for IT

Tipical Questions
Why Should I Hire You? The most overlooked question is also the one most candidates are unprepared to answer. This is often because job applicants don't do their homework on the position. Your job is to illustrate why you are the most qualified candidate. Review the job description and qualifications very closely to identify the skills and knowledge that are critical to the position, then identify experiences from your past that demonstrate those skills and knowledge.
Questions to ask
What can you tell me about your new products or plans for growth? This question should be customized for your particular needs. Do your homework on the employer’s site beforehand and mention a new product or service it’s launching to demonstrate your research and interest. The answer to the question will give you a good idea of where the employer is headed.
