Business Development Representative

Full-time
Propel is a Great Place To Work

About us


Propel Ventures is a fast growing company based in an iconic Richmond building and recently recognised as a Great Place to Work.


At Propel, we find it heartbreaking that many software products fail; and we recognise that it takes very special skills to make products that people love. To solve this problem, we partner with well-known organisations to help them capture product market opportunities faster. Over the past three years we have developed eight market leading products for our clients - and we have developed these products on time and on budget and have won market share for them in each instance.


For the last year the team have been successfully working remotely, so although our office has re-opened, every Propel Ventures team member has the choice to work from the office or from home and we plan to make the office safe and fun so you will want to get out of the PJ’s at least a few times per week. This means we are also opening up our roles beyond Melbourne to anywhere in Australia.


Propel cares about its culture and people. We provide a safe, inclusive environment where we trust our team to get the job done. We are a learning organisation so you’ll have the opportunity to learn and grow.


The ideal candidate for this role will bring a level of creativity and smarts to business development to identify and nurture prospective clients. This individual will work closely with the founders, Ben & Paul, to uncover new leads and build the business.

You have proven experience with B2B marketing processes - ie. you must be able to explain the quantifiable results you have achieved for B2B clients as a result of your efforts in prior roles;

You have a passion and track record for developing creative strategies which capture and engage senior technology executives; and
