Our Livestock Management Dairy team is seeking a Business Development Manager located at our global head office in Groenlo, The Netherlands, to be responsible for identifying, nurturing and capturing profitable business opportunities for our Milking Automation Solutions.

Using the insight gained through first-hand experience, you will be responsible for the ground-up development and execution of a go-to-market strategy in new sales channels.

Building high-trust, genuine relationships is very important to Nedap. This unique and high impact opportunity is ideal for someone who possesses prior (dairy) industry experience and a proven track-record of building new business and strong and sustainable relationships. 

Additional responsibilities:

  • Commit to and deliver on sales targets;
  • Proactively identify, develop and manage strategic partnerships;

  • Maintain knowledge of (current) offerings to identify and expand on business opportunities;

  • Trustworthy – someone who understands and lives business integrity;
  • Your English is good, both in writing and in speech;
  • Willingness to travel internationally on a regular basis (at least 20% of the time). 


You’ll get all the space you need to excel, both literally and figuratively (and we also expect you to do something with it). We offer an energetic environment where you can develop yourself and where it is really fun to work. The person in this position is getting much freedom to make a difference in the dairy industry. It therefore also requires a ‘can do’ mentality and full transparency towards the organization. We believe in the power of ideas and the energy of individual initiative. This is the foundation on which our whole organization is built. We offer the opportunity to join a highly successful, growing, market-leading organization with a strong mission and values, as well as a market competitive remuneration.
