About the role

Are you looking for an opportunity to take on new challenges and advance your career? If you are a strong relationship builder and problem solver, with the dedication to create commercial success, we have the perfect job for you. 

MyFoodOffice® is a Norwegian born software-as-a-service company helping professional bakeries sell more by making them more profitable, efficient and scalable. Our headquarter is located in Oslo Science Park, the hub for Norway’s leading tech companies. As we are experiencing increasing demand for our product, we are seeking an account executive who speaks Italian fluently and are based in Lombardy Region, Italy, to join our digital food business revolution.

We are looking for a top performing account executive who knows the true value of a well-structured sales team and culture, and who would love the opportunity to shape this with his or her own recipe in an industry everyone has an appetite for: fresh breads and delicious cakes.

Building on our success in the Nordics, we have just made a soft-launch in the Italian market. Since March this year we have established our first Italian paying customers and signed exclusive partnership agreements. The opportunity is ripe, and you will have an integral role in the continued growth and success in Italy.

Being the first hire in Italy, you will have a unique chance to build and shape the ideal sales organization and you will work together with us on the next hires.

The very first thing you will do once you join MyFoodOffice is to get to know our products, values and way of operating.

  • Establish and maintain positive business and customer relationships based on mutual trust and respect, being empathic, responsive and schedule conscious
  • Drive knowledge and awareness about MyFoodOffice across the industry through attending industry events and exhibitions, taking an active role in industry conversations and by hosting events
  • Work closely with the MyFoodOffice team to map, specify & provide insights on customers challenges and needs
  • Build and shape a top performing Italian sales team, work closely with the broader commercial team to coordinate sales efforts and develop best practices and grow the organization
  • Play a vital role in the future success of MyFoodOffice in Italy being our first on-the-ground company representative

  • Transparent workplace with a flat structure to solve complex product and tech challenges
  • Truly international team
  • Opportunity to buy stocks and take part in our success forward
  • Competitive compensation package
  • Great career opportunities and future growth within the company

To be successful, we believe you

  • Are an experienced sales enthusiast looking for a new, exciting opportunity
  • Come with a track record you are proud of from the SaaS B2B, and/or have experience in the food making industry
