About the role and team

Since the beginning of Parkos, the company has been business-to-consumer focussed, a field in which we excel. Next to the B2C side, we started focussing on the B2B2C side a year ago.

You get a lot of responsibility and freedom to achieve your goals.

Based on the needs of the potential partner you send qualitative proposals. You are a strong individual who appreciates coaching by our Head of Sales and works closely together with the marketing team and sales colleagues who are responsible for the different countries.
