Welcome to Lepaya

Our mission is to enable professionals across the globe to be more effective in their work and enjoy more happiness in life. Did you know that 85% of your effectiveness at work is determined by soft skills? To deliver on our mission, we deliver high impact soft skill training. Our training platform provides professionals with the more modern tools to develop themselves: online where possible, face-to-face where that has more impact.

We launched early 2018 and, the success of our approach is demonstrated by our rapidly expanding client-base - ranging from the most innovative and fast-growing scale-ups such as Bynder and Picnic, to global corporates such as ING, and L’Oreal.

We are now fully committed to rapid growth and international expansion, supported by a recent €5 mln investment. This makes it the perfect time to step in. The new Head of Sales - Berlin has the opportunity to work in a dynamic and entrepreneurial environment, where he/she plays a central role in achieving ambitious growth.

A word on diversity: at Lepaya, all we’re askin’ is a little respect! To us, it doesn’t matter where you were born, what you believe in, how old you are, what you look like, or who you love. We believe that different perspectives and backgrounds will actually lift Lepaya to new heights and increase our power of thinking. Our passion is to build a strong culture with respect for each other’s unique experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and skills. Join us, as there is a place for you here!


Why do we need you?

Last year, we proved that our learning solution works well across borders: a double-digit percentage of our sales came from outside of Holland, while not having actively sold outside of the The Netherlands yet. One of the growth drivers for 2020 is doubling down on International Sales. As Berlin is home to a host of top-tier scale-ups and corporate head-quarters, and all of our training content is already available in German, Berlin is the logical next step for our expansion.

As you are our first permanent boots on the ground outside of our Amsterdam HQ, you have the willingness and ability to both build a strong local culture, team, go-to-market approach, as well as work (remotely) hand-in-glove with the teams in Amsterdam, notably the Head of Commercial and one of the founders. Yet it’s also a great opportunity - a successful Head of Sales is one pole position for a General Manager of German or DACH-role in the near future, based on commercial (over)performance and leadership skills.


Specifically, what we would expect you to have delivered over the next 6-12 months?

  • Signed & onboarded 10+ “A-level” scale-ups or corporates based in or around Berlin, with a booked revenue in the 1M EUR range;
  • A 1M+ EUR strong pipeline for further acceleration;
  • A strong team, with proven track record in Business Development & Client Success Management, that has relevant networks in the German HR scene;
  • Validated go to market strategy with a clear plan for the next 12-24 months;
  • Lepaya as a name that starts to get mentioned in the relevant HR/L&D networks and meet-ups;




In an ideal world, who would you be?

  • You have experience in a full cycle sales role, ranging from creating lead gen to closing multiple complex deals over time, based on business KPI’s in a HR-facing scale-up or corporate in Berlin;
  • You have entrepreneurial experience in being “first boots on the ground”, and drive culture & growth;
  • You have a natural drive to support your ambitions with numbers and data, are able to quickly test new ideas, and pivot where necessary;
  • You can be a sparring partner for our senior client counterparts: HR Directors & L&D Directors;
  • You have a proven ability to operate in a fast-paced, sometimes ambiguous environment;
  • You are fluent in German & English;


We value capabilities over formal experience, yet what would we love to see on your resume?

  • 7+ years work experience, of which 3+ in Sales, Business Development or Lead Generation;
  • Affinity with learning, training or HR;
  • Fluent in German and English;


And of course, next to the challenge we offer, why is it amazing to work for Lepaya?

  • You will join an inspiring and dynamic environment;
  • We offer accelerated personal growth and career opportunities;
  • We offer an attractive compensation package;
  • And the best: participation in the Lepaya Work-To-Live schedule consisting of unlimited holidays & a free Friday every second week.
