Business Development Representative

Experience: 5+ years • Salary: €12–24KLocation: Remote • Type: Full-time

Metabeta is a data platform for investors, corporates, and startups. We help by providing signals and competitive intelligence to drive better decisions using data, not only gut feeling. We are a small distributed team (Romania, Chile, Poland, and Pakistan). Our founders, Marius and Vlad are serial entrepreneurs and have worked and taught at MIT, Singularity University, Techstars, and Startup Chile. In 2021, we raised a seed round to build the leading data intelligence platform for tech investments.

What we look for

As a B2B SaaS business developer, you will help with our go-to-market strategy, sales execution, and product growth. This is the perfect role for someone who is passionate about people and sales, has a growth mindset, and wants to work in a results-driven team. The position is remote and can be done from anywhere, but the majority of our customers are in Europe and North America. Here are some of the requirements:

  • At least 5 years of experience in B2B sales.
  • Have a good understanding of SaaS go-to-market models, as well as previous experience with sales strategy, sales metrics, growth and reporting, and working with a sales CRM.
  • A good understanding of how the investment ecosystem works (fundraising and investing, mostly) is critical.
  • Excellent command of English (spoken/written) because we target international clients.
  • Previous experience in the VC/PE world is a big plus!
  • Other things that we value are critical thinking, ownership, and team play. Also, you don’t take yourself too seriously, hopefully.


  • Hunting and sales execution. You will be involved in the full cycle from prospecting and researching target leads, to qualifying, closing, and onboarding them. You will hunt decision-makers at venture capital firms, angel groups, and accelerators, then qualify and close them. You will build the sales pipeline and help optimize the sales processes—inbound sales, lead generation, funnels, qualification process, tactics, and metrics.
  • Customer discovery: You will discover unfulfilled customer needs and funnel back customer/prospect feedback to the product team and CEO. You will share the metrics and insights with the rest of the team on a weekly basis.
  • Team collaboration: You will work with the product team to ensure that we deliver what clients need at high standards of quality. You will be able to influence the product strategy and roadmap.
  • Growth and development: You will need to learn fast and continue improving as an individual, and helping the rest of the team grow. Our feedback is straightforward without sugarcoating and we expect the same in order to continue improving.

What we offer
