Business Development Manager

Do you want to help build the next generation of smart solutions for the energy industry? We are looking for a Business Development Manager to join our global technology powerhouse, dedicated to enable a more sustainable future. Are you who we are looking for?

EnergyX is a department in Cegal, and was established with the purpose of building a vertical software portfolio with solutions developed especially for energy companies. We experience high demand for our products and services and are looking for new colleagues to extend and complement our team. Join us on our journey!


As our Business Development Manager, you will work in close cooperation with our sales and management team to identify and secure new clients and business opportunities both nationally and internationally.


You will be responsible for

  • Identifying new market trend, growth areas and partnerships
  • Maintaining and developing strong and long-lasting customer relationships
  • Developing market strategies and growth plans
  • Expanding market positions with existing product portfolio
  • Driving business with new clients and new potential product suites
  • Coordinating with sales teams
  • Negotiating client contract terms


Who you are?

Competencies are important, but we are also convinced that your motivation and your personal qualities are important success factors. We are looking for both you who are new to the game and you who have longer- and relevant experience from the field. We believe that relevant experience can replace the requirements for education, and that your motivation, curiosity, and desire to develop compensate for missing work experience. We believe that you can recognize yourself in the following:

  • You have a commercial mind who understands how digitalization contributes to increased value creation for your clients
  • You understand the needs of clients and identify the potential for improvement, connecting the dots between needs and solutions
  • You are curious about the possibilities of digitalization, and you want to introduce the next generation of smart solutions to new markets
  • You are a natural mediator and have experience working with contractual disputes and negotiations
  • You have higher education in business, economics, sales or similar
  • You have relevant experience from working with business development


However, we’re aware that the competence we’re looking for is not a textbook answer. At Cegal we encourage challenging the existing and we’re always open to discuss new ideas. Have we missed something? Challenge us! 


Who we are?

Our people and culture are the cornerstone of our company. We believe diversity develops a creative and innovative working environment. Our people represent different races, cultures, and backgrounds. But what they all have in common is drive and passion. We empower people, embrace inclusivity, and encourage new ways of thinking.


Why us?

  • Exciting and challenging tasks
  • International tech environment
  • Innovative and agile work environment
  • International and diverse teams
  • Career and growth opportunities
  • Competitive compensation and benefits


While all the above are great reasons as to why you would explore new opportunities, they don't cover why exactly you should explore these opportunities at Cegal. The reason employee satisfaction is so high is our unique company culture.


At Cegal, we recognize that work is about more than competitive compensation and career opportunities. It's also about connecting people, building relationships, and creating purpose.


That's why our employees are engaged in our humanitarian organization Cegal Humanity and contribute to projects such as bridging the digital gap and contributing to equal opportunities for marginalized children in the Digital Village collaboration with SOS-Children's Villages (SOS Barnebyer).


We work to invite more women into the tech industry and have our Women@Cegal network, and we are Platinum Partners in the ODA network. We also have numerous social clubs. Whether you're into golfing, climbing or wine tasting – you'll find colleagues who share your passion.


Finally, we recognize the importance of work-life balance - because life is about more than work! We value flexibility and facilitate ways of working that fit each unique employee.


Does this opportunity trigger your curiosity?

Please send us an application! We can't wait to hear from you and explore a shared future.

About our department EnergyX

At EnergyX, we believe in making a difference where it counts. Our team includes a great mix of world-leading experts in Hydrocarbon Management and people with a forward-leaning attitude who all have one thing in common – we want to be part of the change. In 2019, the EU launched the Green Deal, setting a goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050. To achieve these goals, we must invest in new energy sources and drive innovation in technologies and projects that contribute to the energy transition.


We develop modern and easy-to-use cloud software that tracks, controls, and validates key data for the production, transport, and sale of energy – from origin to point of sale. The solutions are designed to work for a variety of energy sources, such as oil, natural gas, water, wind, hydrogen and solar, and support key work processes and market models throughout this value chain. With full control of the entire energy value chain, there is also an improved possibility of uncovering any deviations and ensuring proper reporting both internally and externally.
