Business Development Manager

We're looking for a new colleague who'd like to join our electric adventure!

Full-time · Oslo/Stavanger

Zaptec powers your next adventure

We combine the latest tech with human-centered design to offer highly intuitive and efficient EV chargers that ensure easier access to personal electric transport.

This gives people the freedom and potential to travel into a more sustainable future. How neat is that?

Within just a few years, we’ve built our domestic market-leading position by supplying superior charging installations for housing co-ops and private homes alike.

As a Norwegian EV pioneer, our goals are aimed at bringing the best charging technology to the rest of the world. Are you up for this challenge?

What your day would look like

As a Business Development Manager at Zaptec, you'll be a vital part of our sales team, dedicated to identifying and reaching out to new businesses to strengthen Zaptec's growth in Norway.

With a primary focus on generating new revenue, you'll play a crucial role in ensuring that Zaptec proactively seeks opportunities in both new and existing markets for growth. Your ability to identify key partners and create new business opportunities will be instrumental in our success.

Although you in many cases will be the first point of contact, you will need to work very close with our existing sales team to ensure a smooth customer handover while embracing our “Win as a team” attitude.

In this role, we believe some of your tasks will be to:

  • Identify new partners, sales channels, and business opportunities in the Norwegian market for all our products and services.
  • Identify different stakeholders, decision-makers, and influencers for both new and existing partners.
  • Understand our partner needs and present our company, suggesting appropriate products/services and proving our capabilities.
  • Develop existing channels, working closely with our existing sales team.
  • Create, maintain, and build your own partner & sales pipeline in our CRM system.
  • Follow up and qualify incoming sales leads.
  • Monitor relevant public and private tenders in the Norwegian market.
  • Stay up to date on trends and news from the industry, our competitors, and our target market.
  • Participate in industry networks, trade shows, and conferences.

While it might seem like a bunch of different tasks, we're confident you'll make the role your own and shape it with your expertise!

Is this you?

To thrive as our new Business Development Manager, we're seeking someone with relevant experience in business development, sales, or similar roles. You should feel at ease expanding your network and reaching out to new partners through all available channels. Strong interpersonal and communication skills are a must. Additionally, if you find motivation in teamwork and want to contribute to building the best sales organization in the industry, we want to hear from you!

As for the skills required for this job

  • Experience in business development, sales, or similar customer-facing roles.

  • You're a fan of sales, naturally proactive, and carry a hunter mentality.
  • You thrive on challenges and excel as a problem solver.
  • A skilled storyteller with good presentation abilities, making complex matters sound like a breeze.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Interested in new technologies and digital solutions.
  • Fluent in Norwegian and English, both spoken and written.
