Job description

Who are we?

We’re Happeo – a diverse team of passionate problem-solvers, working hard to connect companies through the power of one unified digital workplace platform. We are proud to be named one of the most promising startups by TheNextWeb and the European Union with 280% growth YoY. Plus we were recently named a Cool Vendor by Gartner! Our software brings a company’s toolset together in a social intranet and collaboration platform, bridging the gap that isolated tools create in organizations large and small.


Our customers <3 our product! We support customers around the world, including Randstad, Givaudan and so many more. Your job is to scale this customer base with new business accounts in North America.

What’s so cool about all this? You are joining a Series A phase growth company – which means you’ll reap the glory of bringing us to the next stage and change the way the business world communicates. We don't believe in a complex hierarchy. We don’t do long approval processes. We just deliver. You will be joining a company with highly skilled, smart, and diverse people who are all overachievers and want to be “the best”.
