Job description

In your role as Sales Support Engineer, you will monitor internal processes prior to quotations. We rely on you to be the first point of contact for our customers, colleagues, and partners around the globe. Mondays, for example, you work with the Sales Manager to design the first layout. This may also be possible with the customer. Then you have another Sales Support meeting to discuss all updates of all current projects and you check a quote with a Calculator to make sure it does not contain any errors.

Making budget offers, arranging and leading kick-off meetings and ensuring that all the required parties are present. Parties needed for this kick-off could be our water/electro technology department, our partner companies for climate installations, but also our agents in other countries. You have a coordination role and are THE link between our sales and calculation department. This function is not for everyone, because it is a hectic job and no day is the same. A position where you are challenged every day and you learn a lot.

Of course we take care of your development, we have planned a nice training program for you. You also think and work proactively to continuously improve KUBO's products and processes.

 

WHAT DO YOU BRING?

KUBO believes in cultivating the right talent! But what are we actually looking for?

We think it is important that you have the right skills and we also like to train people to become successful in our sector. What skills are we looking for? Connecting, coordinating and technology makes you happy. Fluent English is a must as 75% of our clients operate abroad.

Experience in this specific position is not a requirement, but we think it is important that you are enthusiastic and show commitment to familiarize yourself with this job and to grow in it.

WHAT DO WE BRING TO THE TABLE

Time and attention is what you deserve when you start a new job. This is what you get at KUBO. Your first day and the first month start with an extensive onboarding program consisting of introductory sessions from all departments, given by your new colleagues. You get to know your new colleagues quickly!

A visit to our own factory and BlueLab are also on the program. Your colleagues and our partners will always be there to help you if you wish, after all, we realize projects together! You will end up in an international and open culture with short lines of communication.

Every time we welcome a new colleague, we receive compliments about our onboarding process. We want you to feel welcome right away and to quickly find your way within our KUBO organization.

You will be working in a family business where people are central. Development is part of the identity of the organization. That is why we have our own KUBO Academy, which we are very proud of. Within your own learning environment in this Academy you can certify yourself, you have classroom (group) training and there is so much more.

We are a growing organization and work hard every day to further expand our leading position. This means many opportunities to develop yourself (further). Plenty of opportunities! All you have to do is grab them.

KUBO also offers you:

  • A market-based salary and other attractive benefits that we would like to discuss with you in advance
