Lead Business Development

Leap Forward

We’re looking for an exceptional business developer to help refine our sales track, grow our business and improve our customer experience offering. The ideal candidate already has a solid track record in our core business and a passion for design and innovation projects. If you’re a master of generating sales, building fruitful business relationships and pitching innovative services, this might be the place for you!


Leap Forward has been steadily growing over the last few years, and we want to keep it that way. That’s why we’re actively searching for an expert to guide our business development and take a leading role in our sales and client acquisition flow. This would involve improving the way we approach leads and networking opportunities through a solid understanding of Leap Forward’s service offering and unique selling points.


Your role 

This job is all about taking initiative. We want you to help define your own tasks and responsibilities as our business developer, creating a role that will help shape our business development strategy. That being said, here are some of the functions we had in mind:

  • Identify new sales leads to fuel our growth
  • Pitch our products, services and work culture
  • Help launch and manage new marketing strategies
  • Report regularly on the status of sales and marketing activities
  • Optimise our sales flow, internal and external
  • Cultivate a company-wide approach to business development
  • Maintain fruitful relationships with existing customers
  • Initiate new relationships with potential clients
  • Regularly engage with our business network and generate renewed interest
  • Scout and attend new networking events to sing our praises
  • Work from our office in Ghent when you’re not out making magic happen
  • Join the Leap Forward team as our new colleague full of enthusiasm


We offer 

  • A competitive salary package with great benefits
  • The freedom to attend sponsored trainings and conferences every year
  • All the tools, bells and whistles you need to do your job right
  • The opportunity to take charge of a growing company’s business development strategy
  • The freedom to work semi-remotely between our offices in Ghent and visiting clients
  • Many opportunities to learn and grow in and out of work
  • Access to a growing network of IT and innovation companies – the Cronos group
  • The chance to join a remarkable team of digital experts working on a diverse range of projects for small and high-profile companies
  • An inviting office culture full of friendly colleagues and after-work social events


Along with exciting projects, great benefits, flexible management and many opportunities to grow your career, a key aspect of what Leap Forward has to offer potential employees is our office culture. We spend a lot of time and effort creating an atmosphere where everyone can feel inspired by the work they’re doing and connected to the people they’re doing it with. From annual conferences and trainings to after-work beers and bowling nights, we’re always looking for new ways to improve the quality of life for our team.
