Hi there! Thanks for stopping by 👋

Are you actively looking for a new opportunity? Or just checking the market? Well… you might just be in the right place!

Lightspeed is looking for a Field Sales Account Executive, to join our growing EMEA team. You will be implementing a strategy that will require you to have a physical presence across Paris. Each month you will drive the sales cycle from lead generation, to demonstrations, to closing deals.

Lightspeed’s Hospitality team is now in hyper-growth mode. Our process has been refined and optimized at a smaller scale in the last few years, now is the time to expand our team and our reach.

** Please note this role is based in Paris, France. **

What you’ll be doing:

  • Visiting customers on a regular basis to identify their business challenges & pain points
  • Successfully running in person demonstrations of the retail product
  • Analyzing, reporting and taking action on pipeline metrics
  • Driving performance to consistently meet monthly, quarterly and annual goals
  • Create new business through network events

What you’ll be bringing:

  • Relevant sales experience in a Field and outbound environment, preferably in a solution-sales / technology-related
  • Strong understanding of sales development best practices
  • Ability to manage time effectively and efficiently
  • Excellent customer service and telephone skills, including strong listening, verbal and written communication
  • Demonstrated ability to meet and/or exceed sales targets
  • A love of numbers: you recognize a quantitative approach to making decisions
  • Ability to thrive in a competitive, dynamic and quota-driven environment
  • Fluency in French and English
  • An entrepreneurial and agile mindset, a bias toward action and an ability to pivot when needed to meet business needs and objectives

Nice to have:

  • Experience in hospitality
