Your mission:

We are looking for you as our new full-time team member to join us and provide support for our partnerships and client relationship management for our blockchain custody/tokenization business.

  • Own Salesforce for all internal reportings (sales, leads, partnerships, forecasting) for our custody accounts


    • You are a fresh MBA graduate or still enrolled in your MBA studies
    • Prior work experience in top-tier consulting firms or in the field of key account management
    • Fluent in English, both written and spoken (German is not required, though a strong plus)
    • Quick learner, fast executor and a strong team player
    • Structured, strategic and flexible mindset with strong organizational skills
    • Excited to work in a fast-paced and dynamic startup environment

    Why Upvest?

    • Exciting opportunity to build the future of digital securities!
    • A young, dynamic and fast-growing startup with flat hierarchies and open communication
    • As we strongly believe in personal development, we offer private coaching sessions and educational budget
    • A modern office in the heart of Berlin Mitte, a brand-new Mac, flexible working hours, option of working from home, regular off-site events, free drinks/snacks and many more...
    • We measure our performance with the help of OKRs and love to celebrate our successes
    • A relocation package with visa support

    Our values:

    • Think Fearlessly, Act Fast: We embrace the accelerated pace and ambiguity of building a business on the frontier. We take risks and look forward.
    • Be Street Smart: We are always tuned in to what is going on. With ourselves, our team, our users and the market.
    • Step Up, Stand Together: Every individual is prepared to speak up for what they believe in and stand together as a team to deliver the result, even when the going gets tough.
    • Low Egos, High Expectations: Although we take our work seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We have hunger and humility in equal measure.

    If you want to build the financial infrastructure of tomorrow, a new challenge awaits you!
