Business Development Representative (BDR)

We're on the hunt for a BDR to play a pivotal role as we grow from start-up to scale-up.

About Definely

Recognised as one of the UK’s top tech startups in 2021 by Tech Nation, Definely is a fast-growing, venture-backed company on a mission to transform the $600bn global legal services market. Our customers include some of the world’s top law firms, financial institutions and multinational corporations such as Allen & Overy, Dentons and Deloitte. We are also backed by a number of prominent investors and VCs, including Microsoft, Google for Startups, CRE VC and former dragon, Nick Jenkins.

Working with us

Given that we spend a good portion of our time at our place of work, we are firm believers that everyone should enjoy what they’re doing and who they work with. We operate a transparent workplace culture, where every person has input at every stage and level of strategic decision-making and is a valued member of the team (we promise we are not just saying that)!

We look for natural self-starters who are curious, adaptive, resilient, apply deep logic to their thinking and, most importantly, learn from every mistake!

The role

The Business Development Representative will play a pivotal role in driving Definely’s growth as we move from start-up to scale-up. As the Business Development Representative, the primary purpose of your role is to:

  • Generate new business to improve Definely’s topline performance.
  • Identify new business opportunities with key decision-makers at target customers, including large corporate companies and law firms. You will be delivering pitches, managing target customers through the sales pipeline, and negotiating and closing qualified meetings.
  • Maintain up-to-date information on prospective customers and key contacts in our CRM system (Salesforce).
  • Help to identify and implement Definely’s expansion into new markets and industry verticals.
  • Assist with the preparation of Business Development resources and collateral.
  • Represent Definely at various events such as fairs and conferences in the UK, Europe and beyond.

  • Educate both existing and prospective customers about the power of our product and the benefits they’ll receive from using it.
  • Feedback on what you hear on the front line to the Product, Customer Success and Marketing teams to inform the product roadmap and allow us to continue fine-tuning our product.
