ABF Bearings B.V.
Working for an internationally operating technical wholesaler, but entirely online. In your home-office behind a MacBook Pro, sending the perfect quote in only a few clicks. How is this possible? At least 10 of our 100 colleagues are IT professionals who write their own software. This makes us flexible, inventive, creative and future-oriented. In your role as Account Manager you can fully focus on what you enjoy doing the most. Sales! We're looking for someone who likes to work independently, but finds it very important to be ''that'' teamplayer your colleagues can depend on. Every day we send parcels to over 30 different countries and we believe it’s very important that our customer can communicate in their native tongue. Therefore, you’ll have colleagues from all over the world that communicate mainly in English. ABF has a strong market share, is growing well every year and still has plenty of opportunities to continue growing. This creates many internal growth opportunities. We try to encourage this with great attention to personal development and training budgets. We therefore combine the possibilities of a multinational with the personal attention of a family business.
