As a Business Development Representative (BDR) at Algolia, you will play a critical role prospecting and expanding business opportunities for our Enterprise and Mid Market teams. You will take part in a wide variety of responsibilities that will help foster, qualify, and mature our pipeline with high profile customers.

  • Be an active part of the team, sharing best practices and participating in the Sales Development organisation's projects
  • Manage, track and report sales activities and results using SFDC

A typical morning for Tristan looks like : "Every morning, my goal is to reach out to new people to raise their interest for Algolia. First, I would be looking for new companies to target and find the relevant people I want to reach out to. Then I would craft a personalized messaging to help them realize the value they would get from evaluating Algolia. Eventually, I would own the conversation with them and pass them over to a senior Account Executive when they'll be ready to evaluate Algolia."
