The job

Account Executive

  • Permanent contract 
  • Paris


Forest has been designed to help developers save time and provide business teams with a scalable tool tailored to their operations. At Forest Admin, we’ve developed an “admin panel framework” allowing any web-based projects to skip all the design, development and maintenance of their app’s back office.

Technically speaking, Forest Admin creates an admin API hosted by the client and deploys a cloud-based related admin panel UI. To build such a tool we re-thought the typical SaaS architecture in order not to require access to the client’s data, thereby introducing a new paradigm in the SaaS world!

We’re currently onboarding more and more fast-growing companies (ex. Qonto, Heetch, Shadow…) at an incredible pace and we want to keep accelerating our expansion. All apps (web, mobile, etc.) require an admin panel, which means we can impact virtually … all web-powered businesses!

To succeed we are looking for an exceptionally strong profile to join our sales team and help drive our outbound efforts to achieve widespread adoption of our “admin panel framework” by developer teams across industries and geographies.

Job description

  • In charge of developing a profitable & scalable outbound strategy to meet our outreach acquisition goals
  • In charge of building, implementing & monitoring the processes and growth plans to develop the outbound acquisition channel for the long term

  • Accountable for growing Forest Admin Outbound Sales pipeline, including:

    • Researching relevant sales target according to our ICP
