MARPRO is looking for a business development manager

On behalf of our client,, MARPRO is looking for an entrepreneurial business development manager, with understanding of online business and experience from the maritime sector.

The German Shipowner Association has called the Airbnb for shipyards. was launched in 2018 and helps shipowners and ship managers to find reliable shipyards with a good service and pricing level. With the integrated AIS, Newbuild and Maintenance Database tracks more than 20.000 dockings every year. With this knowledge base can give advice to ship managers which shipyard to use in which region. Shipyard managers can benefit from the docking candidate prediction to find more and better clients for their drydocks.

On shipyards can:

  • offer their services directly to ship managers without a middleman.
  • receive request for docking slots and docking tenders via web on 24/7 basis.
  • get reviews from clients and can show their experience and happy customers.
Managing Director Jakob le Fevre, from MARPRO, says about the  role "This is one of the more interesting roles we have worked with. You can´t determine ambition and attitude from a CV, and this assignment requires a profile that possesses several skills. The profile should see potential for strategic alliances, be extrovert and professional in communication, but at the same time it is an advantage if the IT skills is above average. The profile should be active on social media and understand the potential in various platforms and channels and have min. basic knowledge about general marketing. On top of this, good knowledge about the maritime business, especially shipyards, is a major advantage. I joined an online project in 2010, a maritime jobboard called JOB2SEA and that actually gave me the skills, to start-up my own company and I have been independent for more than 6 years now. A position like this, could change your career and for the right profile, this is a serious opportunity as I see it.
