Elastic is expanding its EMEA-Benelux Sales Development team to support the explosive adoption of our offerings. Companies like Netflix, Facebook, Booking, and Tinder (yeah, that Tinder) are looking to Elastic to help solve their big data problems. As a Sales Development Representative (SDR), you will play a critical role in the success of our sales organization by proactively identifying, nurturing, and creating new opportunities. Unlike most Sales Development organizations, we care about the quality of the interactions you have with our users more than the quantity of calls you make in a day. At Elastic, you will work with current users to understand their use case and help them navigate their Elastic journey. Most of our SDRs created great career progression for themselves. The SDR role is an unique role for second step in career or first step if you have been acting in the commercial environment with student jobs, during college. 

We provide office space for in-person collaboration, and team building which is used by SDRs on average of 3-4 days per week depending on tenure, team, and preference. The in-person collaboration helps our SDRs to build stronger relationships and develop in a more collaborative and supportive environment. Our Dutch office is based in AMSTERDAM (Keizersgracht). 

What You Will Be Doing:
