Contracts have remained unchanged for 30 years.

Their content has simply been moved from a sheet of paper to a computer screen and companies have had to adapt, using everyday tools due to a lack of suitable equipment.

Because they are at the heart of business and business relationships, Leeway reinvents contract negotiation with a collaborative and intuitive experience.

Leeway enables companies to manage the complete contract lifecycle, from generation through negotiation, signing and up to monitoring, in a simple and automated way.

Preferred Experience

👟 About you

We know that perfect candidates don’t exist. Even if not all of this applies to you, we’d love to learn more about you.

  • You're creative and innovative. You love to invent creative ways to attract more leads. You truly believe that the way of buying B2B products has changed and you want to make the difference in a competitive market by adding value to our audience.
  • You have strong communication skills. You have a proven track record of overachieving SQL's quotas from Linkedin sequences and/or phone selling. You love to A/B test your sales messages so that they resonate and are relevant to our audience.
  • You're data-driven and analytical. You had reported on sales funnel metrics and solved problems within the sales funnel without all necessary information. You've been able to use data to measure the business impact of solutions.
  • You are a doer. You want an operational role and not only supervising and managing. You are motivated to keep on spending at least 80% of your time reaching out prospects and closing deals.
  • You are customer focus. You have the ability to put yourself in customer's shoes, showing empathy and doing the right thing for the long term instead of taking shortcuts.

💭 How we work

  • Trust & Ownership: Take, own and implement decisions to build Leeway from scratch. We are not rushing to market but focus on a quality product and the little big details.
  • Less meetings, more actions: We don't run meetings before 2pm. We use meetings when needed and not per default.
  • Think big: We believe that the status quo is meant to be broken and we will always encourage you to dare.

Recruitment Process

🌈 Our stance

  • We stand against racism and fully support all genders. We are actively seeking to create a diverse work environment because teams are stronger with different perspectives and experiences.
  • We don't look for shiny CVs and we don't really care about your degrees. We like atypical profiles and self-taught people. We like people who take risks, even if they fail, more than those who don't.

🤔 Our process

The starting date is as soon as possible. However, we are willing to wait for the right candidate. And will do everything to accommodate your needs. We are mindful of your time and going through all stages can be done within one week. Once you've passed them all we will extend a formal offer.

You'll walk through five stages:

  1. Get to know each other: A 30mn call to pitch Leeway and get you excited to join. We'll also use this chance to see whether both our expectations align.
  2. Interview on your achievements, skills and how you could contribute to Leeway's culture: Thibaut and you are going to chat more about the position, your experiences, what you value and expect, and whatever is on your mind.
  3. Technical assessment: We know that your time is valuable we don't want it to be painful for you. We've actually designed an assessment that requires a minimum of time to be completed. Once done, we'll have a quick call to understand how and why you did things this way and give you feedback.
  4. References call: We'll ask you to make an intro to one or two people you worked with in a previous experience. We see this as a truly two-sided decision and we'll make you an intro to one of our investors to give you as many insights into us as possible if you want.
  5. 🍕 Pizza lunch with the team: Because it's also great to have a relaxing chat and talk about everything like good old friends.

We're lucky to hear from you 🙂
