Job Description

Newspapers. BBQs. Chats with the “bank of mum and dad”. And now, even job ads are talking about the housing market.
But why shouldn’t this one?
There are 2.3 million investment properties in Australia. Many owners and tenants have a poor experience with the way their properties are managed. This results in unnecessary vacancies and reduced ROI.
As a property investor, wouldn’t it be good to have a Different option?
As part of their mission to take care of homes and the people in them, :Different is starting by redesigning the way investment properties are managed- with transparency, technology and flat fees.
And they have some backers! They have recently raised a $25m round of funding, headlined by CBx15 and Antler. The team is already around 110 people, and they are now ready to grow- which is where the Sales Director comes in.
This role is responsible for looking after 2 specific revenue streams, and the teams within them.
The first stream is investors directly- people who are looking to manage their properties. This team is currently four people, and will likely double to 8 in 2022.
The second stream is selling the platform to real estate agents directly, empowering them to deliver a better experience to investors by using the white labelled :Different platform. This team is at 0 people currently, and may grow as large as 10 people in 2022.
So- if you know, you should know what you need to do, and what some of the challenges are in this role.
Speaking to people that work at :Different, consistent themes come up as to why they are part of the journey
  • They work in an industry that is ripe for disruption and where incumbents have been doing the same thing, for a long time, and are not incentivized to change
  • They feel confident about the direction of the company, especially given the growth so far, the recent capital raise and strategic investors
  • They can see that the business is about to take off, and there is an opportunity to solve some big problems and have a tangible impact as the company rapidly scales
  • Lastly- property and tech- do Australians love anything more in 2021!?
So here’s the dream candidate criteria
  • Experience in the residential property industry
  • Experience within a scaling tech start up
  • Experience growing sales teams in an environment where things change
  • Tenacity and ambition to help this business grow, and fast!
But we know not all dreams come true- so if you don’t have the specific criteria, but think your experience equips you well for this role, please apply.
You could just be the something :Different we are looking for.
