About the role
Autarco is looking for a Dutch native speaking Account Manager.

Based on their dealings with accounts, the Account Manager will be expected to provide input into sales process improvement and related IT development. You grow turnover from existing dealer relationships (accounts), provide sales support service including PV system design support, and manage relationships with accounts.
Diary of our Account Manager…
My agenda for today is swamped with meetings with potential wholesalers and dealers in the Northern part of the Netherlands. I’m dropping by three of my oldest clients for some catch ups, and will walk through our updated software-function with them as well. Those meetings are always beneficial. I often get new orders out of them, and our clients are the perfect source of feedback to improve our products! I’ll make sure to schedule an office-brewed coffee with the software guys to tell them about the first impressions of our software update. There’s one more meeting scheduled with a potential client who mentioned she lost some deals to a competitor who does sell Autarco’s solutions, so her company is interested to hear what all the good noise is about! I’m calling it a (successful) day after that!

At Autarco we love making an impact by accelerating the transition to solar energy. We do this by giving solar installers super powers by combining our high quality hardware (modules, inverters, etc.) with our innovative software. This allows them to work much more effectively and sell and install more solar installations than their competitors. With us installers can easily design, sell, install and maintain solar power systems.
We believe that work should be fun. A happy and fulfilled team is our number one priority. We are a hard working team, with an informal and “tell it how it is” culture. Our working environment is dynamic, with short communication lines and most of all fun. We are a close-knit team, where everyone works together with mutual respect. Thinking along and showing initiative is strongly encouraged in everybody, because we do it together! Working in a team is just as natural for us as generating solar energy.
Located in the vibrant Strijp-S area of Eindhoven, the Netherlands, we're on a mission to revolutionise the solar energy landscape. We're looking for talented individuals to join our team and be part of our transformative journey.
