Avy – Business Developer

Rock your work at one of the most innovative companies of Amsterdam and help save lives with urgent medical deliveries and wildlife conservation across the globe. You will experience first hand what it is to work in a fast-paced tech startup that builds astonishing drones that contribute to a better world.

Avy is looking for an optimistic business developer with an entrepreneurial mindset.

We hope you get as much energy from innovative aerospace & drone technology as we do, and that you share our passion to apply this exciting technology to save lives, in impact markets like healthcare, wildlife conservation and medical delivery.

Your main goal is to increase our impact by extending our client base in the markets where we currently operate, mainly urgent medical deliveries and wildlife conservation. You will network at fairs and events, search for prospects online and reach out to them by phone and email to make them enthusiastic about the benefits of long-distance wing drones. An important aspect of your job is to learn quickly and understand the business of the client very well. You will be involved with the client, to develop a viable business model for their aircraft operations. Therefore you travel the world and work closely with our operations project manager who is responsible for developing safe flight operations that comply with the regulation. Together you formulate requirements for the technical team so that they can build a drone suitable for the client and that challenges the status quo.

Join the Avy team to deploy our state-of-the-art drones and contribute to a better world (oh and you can also work in our office-swing chair, behind the piano, in the sauna, at the bar or on our disco toilet).

Deadline for applications: Sunday 7 April 2019 11.59 pm
