Sales and marketing responsible

Building powerful visuals requires a unique combination of analytical, creative and communication skills. We are building a team of motivated people who live at the crossroads of these different skills.

We are currently looking for a sales and marketing responsible to help us in attracting and securing new projects for Baryon.

You will be working together closely with Koen, the founder of the company, to finetune the marketing strategy, define and measure KPIs, and optimize the marketing funnel. A heavy focus of the marketing strategy will be on content marketing (for which you will be assisted by our designer and – if necessary – developer(s)) and identifying interesting prospects. You will turn leads into clients by following them up and qualifying them, and by building offers tailored to their needs.

You should be:

  • Interested in (learning about) data, charts and maps, and open to continuously learn about new possibilities in data visualization.
  • A strong communicator that can convince people about the power of data visualization for their business.
  • Ready to work in a small team with big ambitions, and willing to take on a considerable amount of responsibility within the company.

Ideally you have a medior or senior profile, with between 3 and 10 years of experience in a sales and marketing role. If you worked for IT or design agencies in the past, that is a big plus.

You should be fluent in English and Dutch.

What will you be doing?

We guide our clients through a 3-step process: analysis (basic data analysis, desktop research, user interviews, storyline development), concept design (style exploration, creating wireframes and mockups), and development (digital design, front-end development, dashboard building), to end up with powerful static, animated or interactive visuals that share clear insights or tell engaging stories.

As a sales and marketing responsible, you will convince as many people as possible of the benefits of powerful visual storytelling and information design.

This entails the entire process including (content) marketing, generating and qualifiying leads, following up, and creating offers tailored to their needs. To do this, you will have the full support of the company’s founder and the rest of the team.

We are a small company with high growth ambitions. That means that we cannot offer you an easy job with a fixed task description. You will play a key role within the company, and be responsible for streamlining, optimizing, growing and managing the marketing and sales strategy of the company. No worries, we are here to help!

What can we offer you?

On top of the job diversity, we can offer you one hell of a ride, with lots of challenging opportunities for learning and growing. The ambition is to grow Baryon into a thriving data design agency in the next few years – and you can play a key role in this process!

Our values are:

  • Challenge: we like to tackle complex problems that go beyond the ordinary
  • Diversity: a wide variety of perspectives will lead to the best results
  • Transparency: we say and present things as they are – no fluff

We like happy, spontaneous, ambitious people who are not afraid to speak their mind or to go out of their comfort zone. We will do everything we can to fight discrimination based on age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, religion, or political preference.

We can offer you a full-time employment with competitive salary, smartphone and laptop. Baryon is based in Gentbrugge, Belgium. A lot of the work can be done from home, but we also offer you a coworking spot where you should work at least 2 to 3 days a week. No worries, we’ll take care of the public transport costs. We’re also happy to provide you with all the trainings, subscriptions or books you might need to expand your expertise.

One more thing...

Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At Baryon we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
