Team Rockstars IT has grown since its inception in 2015 to become a top-3 developers house in the Netherlands with a team of more than 450 selected Software Developers. On a project basis, they develop IT solutions for our customers. We are growing fast and our ambitions are endless (think acquisitions and abroad). Within Team Rockstars IT, passion and fun come together. Our style is different. With us, the career and happiness of the IT worker is what matters, as he or she is our “IT Rockstar”!

Based on our philosophy of “Disrupt the world of working with happiness,” we launched a completely new way of working in 2015; completely tailored to the needs of the IT professionals who will define the world of tomorrow! Our customers recognize this and know how to find us more and more and benefit from this. Clients such as Rabobank, Tennet, ABN-AMRO, NS, Jumbo, ASML, Kadaster, Alliander, KPN, Ziggo and Essent are examples.

This is what energizes you

As a strategic account manager, you will further develop our cool concept with mainly our largest and most complex customers within the ‘Central, North East’ region. Through your knowledge of the market and intrinsic motivation to help customers, you identify opportunities, know what questions are at stake, think about strategy and are able to translate business issues into our services – IT projects and software built by our IT Rockstars. You are able to be a full discussion partner for both management and, for example, Product Owners. You don’t do this alone, of course; you work intensively with marketing, recruitment, field management and our CTO office, as well as regularly sparring with your other sales colleagues. You know how to set up an account team and mobilize your own organization to position the best of Team Rockstars IT with clients. We think big and a lot is possible to achieve a 9+ experience with both the client and our Rockstars!

And then what are you concerned with?

  • Full sales & account ownership – from origination to closing deals and from relationship & account management to building your network;
