Sales & Business Development Intern

Company description

Are you a doer/changemaker? Do you want to actively contribute to a startup growth? Is learning through hands-on experience and coaching your thing? What about instantly saving millions of liters of distributed water? Do the words “IoT”, “AI”, “GreenTech”, “InsurTech” and “Circular Economy” trigger your interest? Feel like doing some B2B sales? In that case, take a look at our trainee offer and join our team.

At Shayp, we designed a non-invasive and AI driven solution to detect water leaks for professionals and consumers. 

Shayp won the Belfius Smart Belgium Award and was recognised as one of the most promising global InsurTech startups at Zurich Innovation World Championship.

Our customers are heavy water users, seeking for savings, ease of operations and the reduction of their environmental footprint. We address cities, facility management companies, institutions and insurance companies.

Our goal is simple: develop our customer base to expand within these different types of segments; and as a Sales & Bus Dev trainee, you will actively help us reach it.
