Channel Sales Intern (German Speaking)

Have you ever imagined running an App Store? Lightspeed has one and might be searching for you! The Strategic Alliances department is managing the full Ecosystem of Strategic Integration and Application partners. These partners are working on a daily basis on enriching the Lightspeed eCommerce and Lightspeed Point-Of-Sale (POS) solutions.

As an intern (flexible start date in July 2019, 5-6 months), you will be considered like any other colleague and will be included in running our App Store and POS Integration Ecosystem. This means helping out with marketing and business development activities in order to promote our Ecosystem internally and externally. You will have an impact on the information flow towards new Lightspeed users and you will independently set up marketing campaigns with partners while updating some important processes, such as processing partner requests. Ever imagined building a partnership with companies like PostNL or PayPal, negotiating and closing a long-term agreement with them? Join us and learn how you can do it!

With our recently acquired eCommerce platform SEOshop, Lightspeed is growing into an omnichannel solution for mid-market businesses worldwide. Our culture is focused on enabling people to do their best work. Come work with us and find out what you can do!
