Prosple: Account Manager, National/Remote


See the video of one of our founders describing the role here:

We are looking for a talented and entrepreneurial salesperson to take the lead as we roll out new products to established and new customers in Australia. You might have come across This is our lead product that we first shipped back in 2015. But you'll also be selling into the 150+ websites we run to harness the power of our vast distribution network for your valued customers.

This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to join an amazing team and play a lead role in assisting the early careers industry with world-class products. It’s not a 'sit there and we’ll tell you what to do' kind of role. There is unlimited scope for the right person to drive our sales and business strategy - you will bring new ideas and ambition to become a founding member of our team. You're still in on the ground level- we're only a team of 30! The exposure to learning you'll get is unparalleled.


We’ve tested the market in Australia and confirmed the strong demand for our products. From this point, you will take ownership of accounts and partner relations, work with a high degree of autonomy, and be willing to roll up their sleeves to get things done. You will also have confidence in prospecting for new leads and have an instinct for identifying opportunities.

The ideal candidate will be ruthlessly results-driven, adaptable, and thrive on new challenges in a fast-paced environment. We believe in building long term relationships and serving the best interests of the customer with integrity. This means you’ll need to be great with people, and have the empathy and people skills to truly understand the customer and their needs.

Ideally, you’ll be coming into this role with an outstanding track record in sales or account management, but we are also willing to back candidates who we believe have the raw talent required to quickly grow into this role. If you’re a self-starter and itching to ‘punch above your weight class’, we want to hear from you!

If it’s not you, but you know someone who fits the bill, put us in touch and we’ll gladly pay a AU$5,000 finder’s fee for any introduction that leads to a successful hire.
