Sales Executive

Job description

With targeted sessions and with to-the-point videos, articles and assignments that you can always access via your mobile phone.

Lepaya makes learning measurable. The company combines a large amount of data - for example, when people follow training and how long they are busy - with qualitative feedback and the latest scientific insights in the field of education.

Why Lepaya?

Lepaya is a Amsterdam-based start-up, founded in 2017, with a global reach. We are still actively building. Our founders Peter Kuperus and René Janssen are ex-strategy consultants (BCG) and held higher positions in sold billions of companies located on different continents (Lazada Group, TravelBird, WestWing / Rocket Internet).

Last year, Lepaya's proposition proved to work: the first customers, including for example, and scaleups such as picnic and bloomon, are enthusiastic. This is mainly because Lepaya makes it very simple. The company provides concrete insight into what employees can do more after the training than before and what impact that has on them personally and on the company as a whole. A unique approach in the world of business training. 2019 is an important year for Lepaya. In the coming twelve months the company wants to grow into a stable party in the Netherlands with a number of large regular customers and a strong brand name. In addition, the company also plans to expand internationally. Worldwide, around 200 billion euros is spent on training each year, now mainly on traditional, national players. But there is no reason why a company like Lepaya - with a good sense of what the market wants,
