Business developer
July 2017 - July 2018 - 1 year 1 month

For a prominent FinTech player my missions were:

Multilingual Business Developer FR/EN :
- welcome potential users by presenting the company's services by email and phone;
- lead generation: define if the potential user is a major account;
- detection of the potential user's needs;
- user activation, follow-up;
- management of the relationship with the customers in the long term;
- user project follow-up and technical support;
- support for the integration of the service (via the API or modules developed by partners);

As the "Point of Contact" for my team my responsibilities were as follows:
- answer agents' questions about the product and workflows;
- Welcoming new agents to the team and assisting them during the first few weeks by checking if each of their answers comply with the expected quality standards (spelling, product knowledge), with the tone, then analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each one and carrying out "coaching sessions" so that they can become autonomous;
- create "standard answers" for the most frequently asked questions;
- replaying agent calls and analyzing tickets that received a DSAT.

Going beyond my duties I developed 2 tools:
- A mini website to help agents better understand our API by testing it directly;
- A web interface to automate the writing of response emails to users
