Sales Academy Manager

In the early Adyen days, our founders were training new sales people on selling the value of the Adyen solution themselves. The whole board was involved, as were our own experienced, successful sales people. A rewarding experience, offering a true challenge - but with the massive growth in hiring it became clear we needed a more scalable solution. 

This was the inception of the Adyen Sales Academy. The method remains: our own Adyen sales legends are the stars of our training programs and we believe sales people grow fastest when challenged. But with an ever growing sales team , we’re always looking to scale and improve by adding needed structure and effective learning strategies. Due to our especially vast growth in the US, we are looking for a Sales Academy Manager who’s based there, to run our training programs for our US sales people. 

What you’ll do 

  • For the larger part, run Sales Academy training programs in the US starring our own top sales people as trainers. This entails:
    • Hosting, facilitating and moderating sales trainings of our current programs, in person and online 
    • Creating challenging new programs and sessions for various sales audiences and topics
    • Getting our top sales people on board as trainers (many love to do this) and setting them up for success in sessions
    • Continuously innovating and improving our blended learning offer to adjust to business needs 
  • Collaborate with and build relationships with our most important resource: our pool of internal sales trainers

Who you are :

  • You have experience in a new business sales role for at least 3 years, because we need you to have a deep understanding of your sales crowd
  • You have experience and/or education in the learning and development space - and have a vision on how to get sales people excited and help them grow with training programs
  • You love to host sales trainings. What will help you with that:
    • You have an inspiring presence
    • You’re able to ‘control the room’ without taking the whole stage for yourself  
    • You have the wit and credibility to challenge and confront sales people to help them grow
  • You have the confidence to assess critically and make decisions, because the aim is for you to drive the program(s) you’ll own
  • You have the ‘roll up your sleeves’-mentality to put in work and make it happen
  • You are a great communicator (especially towards sales people): to the point, impactful and people-oriented - both written and spoken
  • You are excited to think in scalable solutions, because we are a growing team on the move to scale
  • You’re willing and able to travel globally for about 10-20% of your time
