As a Business Development Representative (BDR) at Algolia, you will play a critical role prospecting and expanding business opportunities for our Enterprise and Mid Market teams.

A typical morning for Tristan looks like : "Every morning, my goal is to reach out to new people to raise their interest for Algolia. First, I would be looking for new companies to target and find the relevant people I want to reach out to. Then I would craft a personalized messaging to help them realize the value they would get from evaluating Algolia. Eventually, I would own the conversation with them and pass them over to a senior Account Executive when they'll be ready to evaluate Algolia."

  • Communication and writing skills are on point
  • Strong ability to quickly learn and adapt to change
  • Demonstrated success overachieving (professionally/ personally)

REMOTE STRATEGY:

Algolia’s workplace strategy, Hybrid Remote, is designed to harness the power of the opportunities that remote work offers both employees and the company, while also providing an engaging in-office experience for the times when an employee is in an office. Our workplace approach reflects the belief that an employee’s impact, contribution, and output are more important than their physical location.

The majority of employees will be able to choose if, and when, they come into an office on a regular basis. There will be times when our people are asked to come into an office for “moments that matter:” activities like critical planning meetings and team social gatherings. Beyond those events, 80% of our workforce may choose the location from where they work in the country in which they were hired.

We have physical offices in San Francisco, NYC, Atlanta, Paris, London, Austin, Sydney and Bucharest. https://www.algolia.com/about/
