Timely has come a long way since its inception in 2011. We’ve grown an online community of over 46,000 beauty professionals across 90 countries that use our cloud-based business management software to book over 30 million appointments a year.

Our customers are our sun, and our mission is to help the global hair & beauty industry become a 1 trillion dollar industry. We plan to do that by building a total salon management solution that enables our customers to thrive.

2020 was a big year for us as we faced the uncertainty of losing our 12k customer base at the start of the pandemic. But we’ve come out the other side better than ever by ensuring that no one on the Timely team would lose their job and focusing on helping our customers survive. You can hear a little more about 2020 journey from Paul Shingles, our COO, here.

We’ve got our sights on some huge goals over the next few years. How are we going to get there? He tangata, Our people.

What you’ll do

Being on the frontline of our Sales Development Team, you’ll be responsible for creating that all-important human impression that kick-starts our sales process.

We have thousands of hair, beauty and wellness businesses across the world using Timely. As a company, we don’t just build software for this industry, we live in it. Our customers are also our peers, and we want to help them do their best possible work however we can.

Your job will be to find, connect with, and nurture all the Australian and New Zealand businesses in this space who don’t yet know about us.

Before we start getting into detail with them, we need to connect with each business owner, introduce who we are, and get them excited about how we’re helping their industry and the potential of what Timely can do for them.

As the person initiating the first point of contact, you’ll be tasked with finding and connecting with new Timely leads via phone, email, SMS, social media, live website chat, and sometimes even face to face. You’ll understand – and care about – what they’re trying to do, and will quickly and naturally build rapport with these busy business owners in the hair, beauty and wellness space. If someone emails asking for a call you will absolutely delight them, because they’ll barely have their hands off the keyboard before their phone rings.

You’ll be an integral part of our team – not just the sales crew, but the whole company. You’ll develop great insight into what our potential customers might be struggling with, and will become a fountain of knowledge for our product team. You’ll make sure the right people go on to use Timely, never jamming square pegs into round holes – and our success team will high five you for it.
