We provide simple, elegant, yet highly powerful visual marketing journeys, helping over 4,000 businesses create personal connections with every customer at scale, configuring their customer engagement to the right moment, right time and most effective channel.

We enable marketers to capture and convert new leads, connect more closely with their customers, drive repeat and higher frequency of engagement, all at a granular level of visibility that our customers can scale into the millions and build lasting commercial success.

Autopilot has offices in Sydney and the United States and to date has raised over US$30m in funding, with backing from Blackbird Ventures, Southern Cross Ventures and Salesforce Ventures among others.

What we are after
As we shift to the next level as a company, we are building up a world-class sales and online conversion team, with a focus on expanding our base of accomplished sales executives.

This role will focus on the Australian and NZ market, working alongside our US-based global sales operation. The role will work closely with the sales integration team we have in Australia as well as marketing, digital, customer success and engineering teams.

We are looking for people with a passion for showing customers what’s possible in eCommerce, SAAS and marketing automation, and individuals who have demonstrable experience growing companies they have worked for or founded. Proven abilities to collaborate and partner with technical teams, marketing and product are essential.

  • Ensure all lead generation, calls, emails and interactions are synchronised in Pipedrive

  • Additional experience in marketing roles; digital demand generation a plus

  • Thrive in a startup environment. Dynamic, adaptable, and you do your own legwork
  • Ability to multi-task a high volume of Pipedrive leads, emails, and calls at all times (experience with LiveChat, Zendesk, and Pipedrive is a plus.)
