Join us at Pleo!

“Pleo was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2015 by”... That’s usually how an opening line about Pleo goes. But a lot can happen in five years. Pleo has grown fast and we now offer our services in six different markets, to over 18,000 businesses. We’ve freed employees from thousands of hours of manual expense reporting and paperwork, so they can focus on what’s important– doing their best work.

We’ve spent a lot of that time conquering international markets and we are now looking to rapidly expand to be the global spending solution for forward thinking teams everywhere! 🌍

We're looking for someone who is an entrepreneur at heart, and sees that sales is the top priority when building a local company in a new market to join us as our Head of Nordics (Regional Manager) - exciting stuff!

  • Be the face of Pleo in the market
  • Represent and promote Pleo in the local market: Identify events and PR opportunities, make Pleo an attractive place to work to attract the best possible talent, create a solid network of relevant contacts for Pleo in country

Sales is your top priority when building Pleo in your market and you will ...

  • Have complete overview of the sales activities within the local market and align local sales teams to build a solid pipeline and meet targets
  • Work with the sales team to qualify and develop new business opportunities, lead on identifying and growing key accounts and building partnerships
  • Represent the customer when working with the product, CS and marketing teams to deliver an exceptional user experience for our customers with seamless service on all devices.

Through close collaboration with global teams, you are expected to ...

  • Identify events and PR opportunities
  • Identify and help prioritize core localised product and support requirements
  • Ensure all local teams are up to date with the latest product features to proficiently support the growth of the local market
  • Be responsible for ensuring you and the team are aware of necessary Compliance
    regulations through effective training and managing customer complaints appropriately
  • Be responsible for all local contracts, termination conditions, etc (employment, offices, partners, etc.)

We believe you’ll thrive in this role if you have:

  • Experience delivering results in a commercial environment
  • A ‘nose for value’ and the ability to frame and structure complex problems, then quickly prioritise to focus on the high potential opportunities
  • Solid problem solving skills, analytical rigour and comfort with using data to prove a hypothesis
  • The ability to work collaboratively to get things done within a matrix structure, without direct reporting lines
  • A sense of ownership - you take delivery personally, even in a dynamic environment with high ambiguity
  • The ability to present confidently to senior stakeholders
  • Experience at a top-tier consulting firm (Senior Associate/Consultant/Manager) and/or experience in a commercial team of a leading fintech or financial service organisation.
  • Strong network and experience with your local market

You are also likely to ...

  • Have a high energy that is infectious
  • Have a positive, let’s get things done attitude
  • Be a great people’s person with high level of EQ
  • Be humble, no ego! (ain’t nobody got time for that) ;)

Show me the benefits!

  • Your own Pleo card (no more out-of-pocket spending)
  • Flexible working remote options for those onsite (just speak to your team)
  • Quarterly trips to somewhere for team camps (both company-wide ones and team-specific ones). The last physical one was in Spain this year
  • Investment in learning & developing (just check with your team for what's reasonable, we don't have set budgets)

And here are some other nice gestures we make:

  • Catered lunch in our HQ and London offices when you're here
  • 25 days holidays (annual)
  • Loads of weird and wonderful niche communities to join in the company (we're talking guerrilla gardening, liquids tasting, the Pleo band, learning to code initiatives, beer brewing, skiing, Pleo dinners, that type of thing)
  • Wild enthusiasm and encouragement from us if you want to host MeetUps, events, etc - we'll help (venue, food etc)
  • discounts with specific vendors

Working at Pleo means you're working on something very exciting: the future of work. Through fintech we've seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending. Based on some pretty amazing Series C-round investment in 2021 we think we're onto something big.

So, in a nutshell, that's Pleo. Today we are a 400+ team, from over 54 nations, sitting in our Copenhagen HQ, London, Stockholm, Berlin, Madrid, Montreal, or Lisbon offices – and quite a few full-time remotes in 22 other countries! Being HQ'd out of Copenhagen means we're inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance. If you don't work in the office with us we'll help you get up the best remote setup possible, and will fly you in once a quarter for team camps.
