Mid-Market Business Development Manager

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Mid-Market Business Development Manager

Full-time | Melbourne | Victoria | Australia

THE TEAM


Eventbrite officially opened our Australia office in March 2014 and New Zealand in 2017, 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 Melbourne-based 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 35 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 APAC 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


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 APAC 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 Business Development Manager, you’ll work with new contacts to bring them onto the Eventbrite platform. Business Development Managers have significant impact on the growth and success of the company and are responsible for generating leads, qualifying opportunities and securing new business.
