We’re looking for a Managing Director in UK

Who are we?


We are a leading “Work from Anywhere” space solution for corporate occupiers. We connect flexible workplace supply and demand by providing instant access to hundreds of office spaces. With the Spacent Membership and App, employers can offer their teams and employees instant access to workspaces near where they live, meet or travel. Furthermore, enterprise customers use our proprietary AI powered simulation tools to optimise and future-proof their HQ and hybrid workplaces. Our space management portal and mobile app enable occupiers to dynamically manage, analyse and adjust their space resources as their business requirements evolve.


We have a scalable and proven technology platform, with experience of expanding into new markets. We are already live in Finland, Sweden and Canada, and soon launching in the UK and several other markets. This is why we need you.


Our mission


We are not trying to change the world – the change is already happening. Our mission is to make “Work from Anywhere” a reality to more people, and a competitive advantage to our corporate customers.


We believe the biggest positive impact we can have on our planet and our lives is to optimise how we use existing built environments. We at Spacent are on a mission to provide solutions and technologies for the most effective use of buildings that allow for the dynamic workplace requirements of the world’s leading businesses.


Our culture


We have a highly ambitious team-oriented culture built on open thinking, proactivity, accountability and doing the right thing. We never settle and are constantly growing and improving our offering. Most importantly, we never stop dreaming big!


Your role


You will be our first hire in the UK as we’re starting out in Greater London. You will be working directly with the founders to rapidly expand our market presence in the UK on the back of our successful rollouts in other markets. Customer demand is a driver of our geographic expansion, and your role will be central in building the London based team and developing key customer relationships in the UK market.


Country Managers are an integral part of our sales team, responsible for outbound sales to larger enterprise occupier clients. You will apply modern tools for sales and be part of the global marketing team that has successfully delivered growth in our existing markets.


We are selling a hybrid workplace solution which as a concept is new to many of our clients, yet something that everyone is thinking about right now. Hence, you will be one of the pioneers in this fast-growing market, and your skills and ability to simplify a potentially complex message is crucial. We are already operating in multiple countries, often working with global customers, and hence we can provide a toolkit of proven methods for new markets as well.
