Mid-Market Business Development ManagerMelbourne, Victoria, Australia

Mid-Market Business Development Manager

Full-time | Melbourne | Victoria | Australia

Eventbrite is the world’s largest self-service ticketing platform. We build the technology to allow anyone to create, share, find and attend events that fuel their passions and enrich their lives. Music festivals, marathons, conferences, hackathons, air guitar competitions, political rallies, fundraisers, gaming competitions - you name it, we power it. Our mission? To bring the world together through live experiences.


THE TEAM

Eventbrite officially opened our Australia office in March 2014, building on a strong organic business where over a hundred thousand events had been hosted on the platform before boots were on the ground. Our Australian team is focused on continuing growth through brand awareness and marketing and targeting events where our product is a great fit to help organisers be more successful. The team is made up of three primary functions: business development, marketing, and customer success. We’re a growing team of over 25 people, and we help each other out as we work towards our shared vision of making Eventbrite a household name when it comes to live experiences.


What makes joining Eventbrite ANZ so exciting? We are building a best-in-class business development organisation comprised of motivated and talented go-getters. You’ll be working with event organisers of everything from music festivals to concert venues to complicated registrations for mud runs, beer festivals, conferences, and much more. Our horizontal platform means no one conversation with a potential client is the same. There is no script, no one-size-fits-all solution. We’re consultative BD experts, and we train and invest in our smart, goal-oriented team to grow their careers here at Eventbrite.


THE CHALLENGE

In the near future, the majority of Eventbrite’s business will come from outside of the United States. The company is currently in a phase of strong international growth, with offices in 11 countries and having powered events in over 180 countries. In Australia, we have ambitious growth plans for the ANZ market, with the potential to enter the greater AsiaPac region. We’re looking for scrappy and fearless team members to be part of this growth story.


As a mid-market account executive, you’ll work with new contacts to bring them onto the Eventbrite platform. Account executives have significant impact on the growth and success of the company and are responsible for generating leads, qualifying opportunities and securing new business. You will be responsible for selling prospects on our unique value proposition, evangelising our solution and ensuring that the broader market understands how we are shaking up the way ticketing is done.
