What our members are saying
No Network to LinkedIn Referral

"Until I joined Tangent I didn't know anyone at LinkedIn. Now I'm being referred into the company and am being coached by a top LinkedIn sales rep."

From Retail to BDR

"I didn’t go to university and have spent most of my career in retail. After being referred through Tangent, I’m now working as a BDR at Multiverse!

Why be a Business Development Representative?

No experience needed

A BDR role is a great way to kickstart your career in sales. It’s an entry level position so you won't need much experience, just the right attitude and work ethic.

Progress fast

Tech sales offers fast career progression. Expect to be a BDR for around 9-18 months before getting promoted to a full-cycle sales role, or moving to a different area in tech.

Get a good salary

Your starting salary will be around £30,000 + commission on the potential new customers (leads) you find. Many tech companies will also offer you equity in the company.

Your hard work rewarded

You’ll engage with potential leads through cold-calling, emailing and social media outreach. With a commission based salary package, your enthusiasm and creativity will be rewarded.


Is Tangent free?

Yes! Tangent is and always will be free for individual members.

Will I definitely get a job through Tangent?

Employee referrals don’t guarantee a job but they significantly increase your chances. In fact, you are at least 9x more likely to get hired through a referral. There’s no better way to get hired.

Will I get support with my video pitch?

Absolutely. Once you sign up to Tangent, you’ll have access to a wide range of resources that will help you at every step of the process. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.
