Business Development Intern

Website Tonsser

Tonsser is happy to open the opportunity to join us as our new Business Development Intern.
We are looking for a bright go-getter with a positive and winners mindset to assist our team with commercial operations and expansion to new markets. You will be joining a small business development team of 4 teammates that is simply called ‘football team’, working across many business development responsibilities, including brand media revenue, club partnerships, PR and new market expansion.
We are experiencing a growing demand for Tonsser from both commercially and new markets, why we need a structured and self-driven person to help us manage, choose and accelerate these opportunities.
What is Tonsser?
Tonsser is a popular app and utility for youth football players created to ‘Unlock Every Player’s Potential’. With 1.3m+ players on the app across 10 markets, Tonsser has over the last 6 years grown to become the go-to-product for aspirational youth players who wants to track their progress, interact with the community and discover new opportunities to catapult their football journey. In recent years, the platform has become synonymous with the alternative and digital way for players to find opportunities with clubs and potentially also be discovered. Together with more than 20 elite clubs, Tonsser is creating more transparency and connectivity between clubs and players across all levels, and is creating great and inspiring stories each month of players who have used the app to unlock the next level of their football journey.
An example of that is Tonsser United, a team of non-academy players who have been selected through the app to compete against the top academies in the world such as PSG, Juventus and FC Porto. Both for an experience and opportunity of a lifetime, but also to prove that there are high potential players everywhere just waiting for the right opportunity.
But that is just one part of Tonsser. We know that football is not only about getting discovered, most players have that dream, but play with the objective of having fun with their team. For this we work with great brands such as Nike and adidas to create a motivational product that shares our ambition for creating a more empowered ecosystem and aims to build better conditions for youth players to unlock their potential, no matter who you are, where you come from and how privileged you are.
