Your new challenge – Sales jobs
When working for us, you can look forward to
Flexible hours, flextime, hybrid working, or 100 percent remote: depending on your position at TIMOCOM, we allow you to adjust your workday to suit your life. Our clocking system is accurate to the minute, providing a great work-life balance. You want to work remotely? No problem, we will ensure that you still feel like part of the team.
Move your remote office closer to the seaside, or take in some spectacular mountain scenery: we allow you to work from anywhere you want for up to 120 days a year, so you can extend your holiday or visit distant family and friends.
We are team players, because we know what a team can achieve. We look out for each other and enjoy the flexibility and freedom on offer. Every single TIMO is a valuable member of our team.
A 13th monthly salary is just the beginning: we plan for tomorrow today, which means we support you by topping up your monthly company retirement benefit payments. We also offer a variety of other attractive programs, such as contributing to nursery costs for young children, your at-home internet bill, and providing prepaid gift certificates.
We are committed to saving the environment, so we offer you the option of leasing an electric or regular bicycle. Cycling isn’t for you? In that case, we’ll be happy to offer you access to a discounted public transportation ticket. If you drive to work, then we have a transport allowance for you. Plus, there are plenty of free parking spaces available at our offices.
In addition to flexible working hours, we are committed to making sure that you are able to meet both work and family obligations. Our parent-child offices feature a desk, a ball pit, and an area specifically designed for small children, allowing kids to play safely while you work. We also have a nursery: our company owners, the Thiermann family, set up a nursery to make finding childcare easier for employees.
The TIMOCOM Sales Department
What began as a bold start-up in Erkrath, close to Düsseldorf, is now one of the most successful mid-sized IT and data logistics industry specialists in Europe. And our Sales employees are one of the driving forces behind that development. They are responsible for company growth. We offer tailored professional development programs, a variety of options on our eLearning platform, and a strong community, so our Sales Department TIMOs can keep their professional expertise up to date and continue to learn and grow, allowing them to create the optimal customer experience. We want more than just a signature on a dotted line – we are committed to creating sustainable customer loyalty: our goal is to understand each individual customer’s needs and find customised solutions to meet those needs, all while offering first-class customer service. That’s how we exceed customer expectations – in 46 different European countries! Our Sales experts use their native language to introduce potential customers to our products as part of the onboarding process, and are available above and beyond that process as capable company contacts for their customers. In addition to acquiring new customers, our Sales Team are the face of the company when prospective customers get in touch; they carry out needs assessments, organise contracts and manage existing customer relationships.
Professional development opportunities
We support our employees and are committed to providing opportunities for both personal and professional development, regardless of which department they work in. We offer individual coaching sessions, seminars of varying lengths and even full on courses of study: our comprehensive professional development catalogue has plenty of options for you to explore. In addition to individual professional development options, we also learn as a community: we engage in social learning when we talk to one another, observe one another and work together to master challenges.
Flexible professional development tailored to your needs
Our goal is to keep getting better and better. That’s why #keepgrowing is one of our company values. In addition to dealing with errors openly and honestly, and our TIMOs’ commitment to accountability, we believe that making time for growth is an essential component of this value: as a TIMOCOM employee, you will have access to four hours each month to invest in your professional or personal development at a time that works for you; if your manager approves, you can even add more hours to the initial four.
Our internal eLearning platform
Over 20,000 professional development options on a single platform – exclusively available to TIMOs. You can create your own personal development playlist from this extensive offer, and even share it with your co-workers. You can also expand your own knowledge base by adding links to relevant articles or videos. Development plans with specific professional development programs make it easy for you to plan your professional development schedule.
Our leadership development program
We support our managers individually according to their needs, with a structured, strategic approach: after an analysis, we discuss strengths and areas where there is room for growth, and then work together to set new goals. The result is a development plan with custom options such as seminars, coaching, workshops or on-the-job training. Regular follow-up meetings ensure that your success is both guaranteed and sustainable. Our leadership staff are always learning from one another, and mentoring partnerships allow experienced managers to pass on their expertise.
Our company podcast
We learn together – in addition to uGROW and lernOS, everyone is invited to contribute to our company podcast. The TIMO-Cast discusses a variety of subjects, allowing all TIMOs the opportunity to learn more about areas of expertise within the company, gain new insights, or actively share their knowledge in the form of interviews. A new episode is released each month – by and for TIMOs, with subjects including agility, innovation, market developments and Logistics 4.0.

What our TIMOs say
“As an Account Specialist, I learn something new about the logistics industry every day. Speaking to freight forwarders from Sweden, road hauliers from England or trade companies in the Netherlands provides direct insight into the work our customers do each day. By entering into a dialogue with them, I am able to truly understand the challenges facing the logistics industry, and work towards achieving genuine success for the customers within our network.”

FAQ on applying and onboarding
- Application: We recommend applying using our online application tool. You can find the link in every job post. We only need your contact information and your resume – no need to write a cover letter.
- Interview: We want to get to know you in person. After an initial phone interview, you will speak to your prospective department and our recruiters; the atmosphere is relaxed, and we will discuss expectations, what you want from the position, framework conditions and so on. Of course there will be plenty of time for you to ask questions.
- Meeting day: Is the chemistry right? You will have a chance to get to know the people you will be working with. There might be a small work task waiting to help you warm up. The duration of the meeting day varies and depends on the position to be filled. The schedule will be customised to suit you and the job you are applying for.
- Decision: Afterwards you will have time to review your impressions of the company and we will take some time to consider your application. In just a few days, we will get back to you, hopefully to discuss your onboarding process as a new TIMO.
We are committed to ensuring that communication throughout the entire application process remains transparent and honest: we will provide regular updates regarding the status of your application. Our goal is for you to feel good about the process, from start to finish.
