Business Development Manager

Job description

Lansweeper is an IT Asset Management software provider helping businesses better understand, manage and protect their IT devices and network. Over 25 000 customers rely on its discovery and inventory capabilities to govern their infrastructure, software, and users.

In 2020, Lansweeper acquired Fing, specialized in network scanning and device recognition. The acquisition has enhanced Lansweeper’s own IT network discovery capabilities and data enrichment by adding Fing’s unique device identification capabilities with the largest databases of over 1.3 billion devices.

Aside from a direct go-to-market, there is also tremendous potential in an indirect approach. This has been proven from our successful OEM business by embedding our unique device recognition capabilities into Cybersecurity, Telecom and Hardware Manufacturers products and services.

Our Embedded Technology (“ET”) team within Lansweeper is fully dedicated to make available key components of the Lansweeper technology platform for third parties to embed into their own products and services. The team acts as an entrepreneurial unit to undertake all the activities needed to fully realize a business. The team mission is to continue to developing a high momentum, scalable OEM offering for the Lansweeper platform, and requires an agile, pragmatic and versatile individual that is willing to go well beyond their job description to make it a success.

This key high visibility position calls for self-motivation and a driven attitude; eager to build business; adaptability and humbleness; business savvy and some technical evangelism.

A day in the life of

The first task of the ET team is to bring our device recognition product to a scale-up level. Our recognition services rely on a cloud-based system to provide a reliable and smart service for our business customers. Our Data Lake is a big-data and analytics ML platform that crunches the crowdsourced data points, producing device recognition models and market insights. 

As Business Development Manager you will:

  • Develop and execute a growth strategy for device recognition. Focus on generating new business opportunities for the company by identifying, contacting, and qualifying potential customers.
  • Be responsible for creating and managing leads through the sales pipeline. Interact with customers with cold and warm calls, and emails and attend trade shows to build relationships and generate leads.
  • Contribute to the revenue targets for ET and execute by following up on inbound leads, and prospecting into existing customers to uncover growth opportunities.
  • Identify customer needs, and share ideas about improving our product and processes as well as customer engagement information with the Product Management and Marketing teams.
  • Work with our CRM tools (i.e. Hubspot) to qualify and manage leads, keep the pipeline and budget updated, manage the sales activity and issue monthly invoices where required.
  • Collaborate with the marketing team to enable an effective account-based marketing process
  • Stay up-to-date on market trends, competition, and industry developments
  • Provide regular reports on business development and sales activities and results
