Sales Manager - EMEA

Traditional CMSs have been around for decades. But today, the content has to be displayed everywhere: mobile applications, IoT, ATMs, etc. With the rise of the Jamstack, even the way to create a website completely changed over the past few years. In that context, a new kind of CMS appeared: the Headless CMS. The concept is very simple: it makes the content available to any platform, through an API. The entire CMS marketing is completely shifting to Headless, making it a booming market.

In a world where companies want to keep control of their stack, avoid vendor lock-in, customize their CMS according to their needs, and connect it to any service, open-source is a requirement to be largely adopted by corporations and recommended by developers. Within 6 years, Strapi became, by far, the leading open-source Headless CMS.

Strapi has been downloaded more than 5M times, reached 40k stars on GitHub, 700 contributors, 250k lines of code, and 350 plugins. We raised a Seed round with Accel and Index pre-empted our Series A. Our team counts 50 amazing Strapiers fully distributed all over the world. Our revenue has been growing by 20% month over month in 2021. Our customers include IBM, Virgin Media, Toyota, Accenture, Delivery Hero, and hundreds of others.
