Become our first Business Development Manager in France and help us uncover dream chasers while building an exciting business.
Now empowering more than 1.4 million young footballers in the app, Tonsser has since its launch in 2015 become the leading app for youth players focusing on creating new ways, new journeys for players to unlock their potential.
With 750,000+ french youth players in France on the Tonsser app, we are excited to open the position as Business Development Manager, France to build a meaningful and strong business in France.
What is Tonsser?
Tonsser is the leading app and platform for youth football players in Europe with more than 1.4m players using the app to unlock their potential. The focus has been on building an excellent user experience that motivates, inspires and empowers players to be the best they can be and share it with the community... and discover life-changing opportunities.
With the vision of democratising the football industry to create equal access to opportunities, we make it possible for players to build identity and capture their performance through stats and video to compare with the community and earn attention from both local and global clubs.
On top of our free app, we are building a 21st century football club, Tonsser United. A transformative football club born out of digital community to create opportunities for underrated and unsigned players. Already, Tonsser United have played and competed against clubs like PSG, Juventus, FC Porto, Marseille, Lille and Lyon - and we are seeing how the unsigned players are busting myths about talent identification and how many highly talented players who are out there, just waiting for the right chance.
As Business Development Manager you will be spearheading our commercial activities in France with the overall responsibility of P&L reporting directly to the CEO, while working in tight collaboration with our marketing team to grow the user base and Tonsser United membership. We are on an exciting journey with Tonsser United to create a club unlike anything the world has seen before, and we believe it holds unlimited opportunities for players but also as a business case. Your main focus will be to commercialise Tonsser and Tonsser United in France, while staying true to our commitments of empowering youth players above anything.
