Are you passionate about relationship building, with a keen interest in data and technology? If so, has an exciting opportunity for you! We are seeking a Partnership Manager who will be fully responsible for developing and executing a comprehensive partnership strategy to increase our Location Data availability and get us up and running for our European expansion from a data availability point-of-view.

As the Partnership Manager, your main focus will be collaborating closely with both internal teams and external partners. Together, you'll work to pinpoint, negotiate, and forge location data partnerships that align with the company's goals. Your responsibilities will include strategic planning, nurturing relationships, and identifying new data prospects. Your key performance indicator (KPI) will revolve around ensuring qualitative Location Data availability, achieved either through partnerships with data vendors or by implementing our own SDK for in-house data collection within mobile applications of a direct network of partners. As a secondary objective, our European growth heavily relies on understanding the local venues (POIs). Similar to the Location Data challenge, you will connect our internal Data engineers’ efforts with what potential partners have to offer to strive for the highest degree of quality.

  • Actively engage with potential partners, fostering relationships to establish meaningful collaborations.
  • Negotiate partnership agreements, ensuring terms, finances, and metrics benefit both parties.
  • Serve as the main point of contact for partners, ensuring effective communication and issue resolution.
  • Cultivate long-term partnerships through consistent engagement and collaboration opportunities.
  • Collaborate with internal teams to align partnership objectives with overall business goals.
  • Stay up-to-date on industry trends and technologies to identify partnership opportunities that enhance data availability.
  • Monitor and respond to key performance indicators to track the success of partnership initiatives.

Whom we are looking for

  • Master’s degree in business, marketing, or a related field.
  • Proven experience in partnership management or business development roles, preferably in the technology or digital networking industry.
  • Strong track record of successfully identifying, negotiating, and executing strategic partnerships.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to build and maintain relationships at all levels.
  • Strong business acumen and strategic thinking, with the ability to analyze market trends and identify growth opportunities.
  • Results-oriented mindset, with a demonstrated ability to drive initiatives and achieve targets.
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced and dynamic environment.
  • Fluent in English and Dutch, knowledge of French and/or German a strong plus

What do we offer

  • A varied and exciting job in a successful, fast-growing scale-up.
  • A competitive salary based on your merits.
  • Flexibility in working remote or at our spacious office (Ghent).
  • A fun work environment located near Ghent.
