Team Lead, Sales

We’re looking for an experienced and motivated leader to join our Sales Management team. Here at Adyen, we have no boundaries or limitations when it comes to sourcing customers - any region, size, or vertical. An unobvious approach, this freedom allows for creative and motivated Account Executives to have limitless opportunities and help close some of the largest brands in DACH and internationally, including Zalando, Uber, Spotify, McDonalds, Breuninger, Trade Republic, and many others.

The scope of the role includes management of the enterprise salesforce across all offices in the DACH region. The central goal of this role is to continue - and accelerate - the scale of our  strong growth through individual impact and in the scaling and execution of the Sales team. 

The ideal candidate is a natural leader and networker with a consultative and commercial mindset, who thrives in a fast-paced, diverse, and entrepreneurial environment.  As a critical member of the DACH Team, this candidate will be an integral contributor to shaping Adyen’s momentum and team environment.

What you’ll do:

  • Lead a part of our Sales Team across the DACH Region, reporting into the Head of Sales & Partnerships DACH
  • Scale the organization to meet our growth targets and to capture the demand of Adyen’s platform across segments, verticals, and offerings. 
  • Get hands on involved in the largest, most strategic deals, managing executive relationships and helping the team get the deal over the finish line. 
  • Become a critical member of the DACH Management Team, working hand-in-hand with counterparts in Account Management, Marketing, Sales, and Product to achieve our mission in DACH.
  • Be a purposeful and empathetic change agent, embracing the ways of selling that make Adyen unique and desirable to customers while also bringing a fresh perspective on how we can operate at scale. 

Who you are:

  • A senior leader comfortable scaling the Sales organization further in the coming years and end-to-end owning the commercial success of the region with the regional President. Experience managing managers is a requirement.
  • Extensive experience working in an Enterprise B2B context where sales cycles are long (6-18 months) and the sales approach is high-touch and consultative.
  • Experience with transactional volume based (as opposed to SaaS/seat-based) commercial models. 
  • Experience in maintaining the most senior executive relationships at very large Enterprise prospects and helping close those deals.
  • Data-driven in making decisions, setting goals, and driving success in the organization, while also embracing ‘hands on’ sales and qualitative metrics of success.  
  • Pragmatic way of working, high energy, has a creative mindset about dealmaking, manages & supports the team from the front lines and not from behind desk & reports. 
  • Experience in international collaboration and navigating a global organization.
  • Empathetic leader that can affect change while also being firm on change management.
  • Teamwork orientation, especially with other teams central to our mission such as Marketing, Account Management, and Operations.
  • Full professional proficiency in English and German
