NextChapter is a leading commerce platform. We work for (international) companies for whom e-commerce is core business. Our customers sell through webshops (B2C/B2B), marketplaces, social media, and all other online sales channels. The power of NextChapter eCommerce is: multichannel selling, through one central platform.
NextChapter eCommerce is known as very innovative, progressive, high-quality and flexible. Some of the clients we work for are SPORT2000, KPN, Euretco, KlusWijs, BLOND Amsterdam, Vitatheek and TopShoe.
The NextChapter platform was built on our own with our team of 30 e-commerce professionals (programmers, designers, project managers, marketers, etc.) and now we are on the verge of breaking through, first nationally and then internationally. In order to realize our ambitions, an six-figure investment was raised last year, which means that we are looking for talent to expand.
A few months ago, our office was completely renovated and has a great view from the top floor. We like to work hard but also enjoy a great laugh, play shuffleboard and have lunch together. Your new colleagues are passionate e-commerce professionals and there is always room for your ideas.
Our core values, who we are:
LEADING & FORWARDING. We want to be the best and the first.
INNOVATIVE & SCALABLE. We are thought leaders and future-proof.
ENERGETIC. We’ve got a deep-rooted passion for e-commerce.
ROBUST. Our solutions are reliable and stable.
INVOLVED. We partner up with our customers and are committed to their success.
As a Sales Development Representative you are responsible for generating appointments and you work closely with our Sales Director who teaches you the tricks of the trade. By successfully combining different outbound techniques, you collect important prospects. In addition, our good reputation in the industry in combination with the active marketing department ensures that leads also find their way to NextChapter eCommerce, and you also maintain contact with these leads.
You are the first point of contact and therefore it’s important that you get enthusiastic from contact with people/companies, that you can translate a technical product into practical applications, that you can take a “no” for an answer and that you are enthusiastic about e-commerce in general.
