BRYTER is a young yet leading software company in decision automation. We aim to change the way people make decisions in complex and business-critical scenarios. Our no-code building platform combines great usability with intelligent technology to enable our clients to build and use automation apps in their day-to-day business. We help all knowledge-intensive industries to make their daily business more efficient and transparent and automate whatever is burdensome and boring. Our clients are big companies, banks, consultancies and law firms across the globe.
We believe that teams are more important than businesses and are convinced that the right team can have the greatest impact. Our management has successfully built, scaled and sold companies before, and are creating an environment where everyone can flourish and grow to their full potential.
We want our team members to take responsibility, to understand the mission and ultimately: to be happy at work and home. That is why we optimize our organization for happiness, allowing everyone to have as much ownership, autonomy and mastery as possible. We allow our people to work from home or anywhere else, and we encourage everyone to take part in conferences, to speak up and to learn.
Our team consists of highly experienced and motivated people in our offices in Berlin, Frankfurt and London. We are currently looking for a Key Account Manager who lives in or close to the German market and speaks both German and English at a native or fluent level.
Being a Key Account Manager with us
