Sales Development Representative

We believe in building incredible software that's affordable, easy to use, solves customer problems, and that our customers can try for free and buy themselves. We're inspired by companies like Atlassian, Canva, Datadog, and Slack who have built amazing products with incredibly sales-efficient businesses. This product-led growth strategy has seen us expand to hundreds of customers like Shopify, Boston Consulting Group, VMware, GitLab, and more.

We've achieved all of this from Sydney, Australia – with only a few key individuals working on sales and developing our Enterprise business. Enterprise has been growing at 15% month-on-month, with the majority of customers located in North America and Europe. We've recently raised capital to accelerate this growth, with backing from Australia's leading VC firm, Blackbird Ventures (investors in Canva and SafetyCulture), and by US-based Felicis Ventures (investors in Adyen, Shopify, and Notion).

In early 2022 we will be establishing a presence in San Francisco to enable us to better serve our global customer base, and fuel continued Enterprise growth. You will join us as the first individual focused on inbound sales development and you will be a critical contributor in developing an inbound motion that leverages the hundreds of leads and trials that sign up for Dovetail every week. You'll work with the team in Sydney to develop an inbound motion that complements the self-service sales model that has taken us to where we are today.

While we work to establish a physical office in San Francisco, we are open to individuals starting remotely with the view to be a key contributor in developing our local presence, office culture, and fuelling our continued Enterprise growth in North America. We expect to be able to have someone start in this role from January 2022.
