Open access pub­lish­ing: Sales and pro­ject man­age­ment


Work­ing field:

We are cur­rently seek­ing a motiv­ated indi­vidual to join our team full time as a trainee

Trainee: Open access pub­lish­ing/ Sales and pro­ject man­age­ment

We are a small but dynamic team loc­ated in Ber­lin. For new acquis­i­tions and man­age­ment of our inter­na­tional cus­tomer base provid­ing ser­vices for aca­demic pub­lish­ing within a dis­cov­ery envir­on­ment and rolling out a new pro­ject revolving around Open Access books we require sup­port for the fol­low­ing activ­it­ies:

  • Iden­ti­fic­a­tion of and out­reach to poten­tial cus­tom­ers
  • Cus­tomer pitches (e-mail, tele­phone, live demos)
  • Nego­ti­ations with cus­tom­ers on ser­vice level and price
  • Account man­age­ment
  • Com­mu­nic­a­tion with stake­hold­ers, cus­tom­ers and tech­nical team
  • Pro­ject man­age­ment


You should have good com­mu­nic­a­tion skills and the abil­ity to quickly under­stand a poten­tial cus­tomer’s needs and offer solu­tions. You should enjoy pitch­ing, nego­ti­at­ing, and clos­ing a deal. An interest in schol­arly com­mu­nic­a­tion, an aca­demic degree at Mas­ters level or above, good organ­iz­a­tional skills and Eng­lish flu­ency are essen­tial. Any aca­demic back­ground will be con­sidered. Some pre­lim­in­ary exper­i­ence in schol­arly pub­lish­ing of journ­als and/or books would be help­ful. Lar­ger cus­tomer pro­jects may require some pro­ject man­age­ment skills. We are look­ing for a team player with inde­pend­ent prob­lem-solv­ing skills to move our busi­ness for­ward.

What we of­fer:

We offer insight into the Open Access pub­lish­ing industry and hands on exper­i­ence for train­ing and hon­ing your sales and pro­ject man­age­ment skills within the frame­work of an open know­ledge goal.
