Business Development Manager (m/f)
- Manager/in ohne Personalverantwortung
What began in late 2008 in a shared flat, has grown into a global company with offices on three continents. Headquartered in Berlin, Germany, BIG has more than 330 employees worldwide. Our innovative solutions set the standards - we are one of the leading mobile companies in Europe and we operate one of the biggest websites in each country whose market we have entered.
Today the company is more committed than ever. The limitless energy and hands-on involvement of the people here at kaufDA in Germany, Bonial in France, Ofertia in Spain, Guiato in Brazil and Retale in the U.S. have created a promising future for all our users and clients in 11 markets worldwide. Think BIG.
Develop and scale our new product "Out of Milk" on a global scale.
- You will lead a product line that is already live and successful
- You develop a vision + execute a plan to scale this massively in the US market and in all 11 countries + beyond
- You create smart forms of monetization packaging for this unit and act as an evangelist for retailers/brands supporting our sales teams to educate the market
- You are in charge of setting up the product for success by a) making sure it receives the focus, funding, marketing attention and capacities it needs („business owner“) and b) make sure, that we have a setup with the countries/sales organizations that will work (pricing, incentives, positioning etc.)
- You will be overseeing a global „P&L“ view (profit center)
The team setup

How this will work day to day
