Wait a minute.
Deep inside you are looking for a new adventure with…
🗽 Freedom: feeling free to work remotely or hybrid and being trusted to deliver
🔥 Ambition: growing up surrounded by smart colleagues driven to create something big
😍 Impact: contributing to transform people lives at scale and feel your own impact in the company
And you deserve it because you:
Are driven by results and impact
Are passionate about influence, negotiating, closing
Are known to build strong trust and connection in a heartbeat with multiple stakeholders
You also happen to want to use your experience as an awesome Business Developer to contribute to impacting the lives of thousands of people?
Then this job might be for you!
This is a full-time position, carried out from our beautiful offices in Lisbon (2024), or the comfort of your living room. You have to be French and English fluent (most of our applicants are French-speaking and our internal language is English - this is a non negotiable requirement).
But maybe YOU WONDER WHAT’S OUR STORY ? 😉
At Paradox, we are convinced that people do not want “just a job” anymore.
We are all craving to have an impact through our professional journey. Some want to start their own venture, some want to become an intrapreneur in their current organization, some others just want their day-to-day tasks to have more meaning.
🎯 PARADOX HAS ONE GOAL: TO EMPOWER PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS TO LIVE THEIR TRUE AMBITIONS.
But where do we start?
If you have an interest in personal development, you probably already know that:
It needs to change, and we’re here to make it happen!
⭐️ OUR AMBITION IS TO MAKE SUCCESS THE ONLY POSSIBLE OUTCOME FOR OUR CLIENTS (WHATEVER SUCCESS MEANS FOR THEM), BY CRAFTING INNOVATIVE & CAPTIVATING BREAKTHROUGH EXPERIENCES.
In other words, we want to make personal growth as entertaining as watching Netflix.
How, you might be wondering?
We travel the world and surround ourselves with top entrepreneurs (Richard Branson - Founder of Virgin, Marc Simoncini - Founder of Meeting, Fred Mazzella - Founder of BlablaCar), world athletes (Frederick Bousquet - World record in 50m free swimming, Frank Leboeuf - WorldCup Footballer), and artists (Gad Elmaleh - Comedian, Barry Osborne - Producer of Lord of the Rings and Matrix) ✊;
We reverse engineer their strategies for achieving success and lean on the latest researches about neuroscience ⚙️;
We deliver trainings & educational contents around Power Skills (critical thinking, productivity, leadership, public speaking, coaching, stress management, etc.), self-growth and performance, through a balanced set of e-learning programs, events and edutainment videos 💡.
From one well-known Founder to a team of +80 people today (and counting!), this approach has paid off and enabled us to exceed 2 million followers on social networks, and to have thousands of people attending our online events and training courses.
And here are the vessels we embarked on to complete our mission:
🔥 TOGETHER, WE ARE DRIVEN BY ONE DREAM:
Helping 100 000 people achieve their dream and display their pictures on what we call the “100 000 dreams wall” ;
Giving our clients access to constant personal growth by reinventing their learning experience ;
Have Will Smith and Richard Branson in our next documentary.
And that’s where you come in.

IT MIGHT NOT BE FOR YOU
You don’t like to be challenged and grow in your job
You don't like receiving or giving tough feedbacks
You don’t usually try to improve the processes in place: if they are here, there is a reason
You like to have very specific tasks assigned to you that won’t evolve in the course of a year
You like to be told what to do or how to do something on a daily basis
None of the following reflects your personal interests: personal development / coaching / professional growth / education / edtech / teaching / edutainment / impact startups
Your only driver is joining a full-remote company: yes, our company culture is cool, but we want people to care about our mission, products, and their job!
