To manage the ever more demanding requirements of virtual presence, our clients need software which is open to changes, open to work for anybody and open to grow from a small brochure website to a high-performance, business-integrated virtual presence. We’re looking for someone who is ready to jump in with both feet and answer business related questions straightforwardly with a clear focus on the business value our products create.

Of course also generating new business, taking chances; if that’s you, great!


You will be joining the Sales team in Basel, Switzerland. Your prior roles in sales have given you a good understanding of the overall sales process. We need a go-getter, but you’re going to do more than just reach out to new clients. We want you to become partners with our potential clients to help them execute their goals. With a consultative approach, you will show them how Magnolia can help make their day-to-day business smoother and more profitable. We’re a successful and growing company, with a steady stream of new clients. We’ll challenge you and give you every opportunity to grow in your profession.



  • Identify and develop new business opportunities and target leads
  • Develop and maintain strong customer connections
  • Understand the customer by asking the right questions
  • Don't sell a product - sell a solution with an added value
  • Respond to inbound queries from our customers via phone, web conference and e-mail
  • Present Magnolia to prospective customers primarily through web demonstrations, but also through phone conferences and on-site presentations
  • Engage in accurate forecasting and CRM activities to effectively prospect and generate new customer leads and manage the existing customer base and pipeline
  • Actively participate and network with professionals in the Open Source and CMS community to stay on top of industry trends and share your knowledge with others
  • Travel as necessary to conduct field sales presentations and related activities (typically 40% travel away from office)


What we are looking for

  • 5+ years of recent and relevant sales experience in a leading web-oriented company, selling related enterprise-class products and projects
  • Technologically savvy, broad know-how of CMS, web technologies related products and a good understanding of the values cloud services are providing
  • Proven ability to win business and establish positive long-term customer relationships and satisfaction
  • Demonstrated track record of success in lead generation and prospecting as well as closing sales and achieving targets
  • Highly adaptable and independent, self-motivated individual with excellent written and verbal communications skills
  • A can-do attitude, excellent presentation skills and the ability to work cross-functionally
  • Native in German; fluent in English and any other languages like French or Italian are a big plus

How we work

Magnolia is a great place to work. The founders have established a healthy, diverse and multicultural environment, based on friendliness, respect and a responsible “work/life” balance. We enjoy each other's company.  We participate in the Magnolia community by contributing to the forums, blogging, attending conferences and hosting our own annual conference. We’re passionate about what we create. Design and craft matter to us -  whether it be in the graphics, the user experience or the code.

How to apply

If you have the experience and skills to help our clients and partners get the most out of Magnolia, and would like to work in a buzzing international company, we'd love to hear from you. We always have jobs for the right people.
