At Capdesk, we’re about to rewrite the history books on how companies use equity to empower their people. By unlocking the power of equity, we can change finance for good.
With equity made more accessible, businesses can unite employees, owners and investors through shared success. It might sound revolutionary, but it shouldn’t. It’s about time.
In the last few years, we’ve quietly become a leader in our field, providing the easiest way for private companies to digitise their equity information and manage and issue employee equity schemes. There are no longer any excuses for denying employees a share of the wealth they helped to create.
We recently launched a first-of-its-kind secondaries market to take our mission even further. Now, employees can turn vested shares into equity as and when it suits them – no more waiting for the company to IPO.
Employee equity schemes have been broken for too long; it’s time to create a world where everyone can be a stakeholder.
Capdesk is remote-friendly, but more importantly team-first. We have amazing people all over the world but most of the team is split between Copenhagen and London where we still have brick-and-mortar offices. Applicants are welcome from every time zone within UTC -2 and +2.
We’re a lean team, so every hire is significant to us. We’re looking for each newcomer to strengthen our mission, our team and our culture – and challenge us to get better.
We completed an £8m Series A in March 2021, and we have over 1000 of Europe’s startups and scale-ups using our software. We’re gearing up to go further, across Europe and beyond. That’s where you come in.
ABOUT THE ROLE
As our Sales Director, you’ll join a robust commercial leadership team with backgrounds from the likes of Google, Onfido, Pleo, Depop & Triptease. You will work directly with them, our COO and our CEO to reach our commercial goals.
We are well-established in the UK and the Nordics and expanding into the rest of Europe. Several markets across Europe have shown strong interest in our product, and we already have customers and presence in Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and France. The next 1-2 years, we need to consolidate our leading position in Europe by successfully establishing ourselves across all major new markets in Europe. We also have promising revenue streams outside our core subscription business that we need to build out, including services and transactions.
As a commercial team, we rally around shared goals across Sales, CS and Growth (Marketing) functions to avoid siloed working across teams. We believe in accountable cross-collaboration.
Coming into this role, we’d expect you to help us achieve our commercial goals, lead on our sales strategy and European expansion, and to further build out and lead our Sales team.
In this role, your responsibilities will include:
