Business Development Manager – Australia

The Company

Hi. We’re Glow. We help businesses make better decisions by giving them access to consumer insights.  We are a research technology company (‘restech’) based in Melbourne, Australia.

Businesses are faced with commercially important decisions all the time, often without reliable data to guide their choices. Undertaking research to inform these decisions used to be slow, cumbersome and expensive. 

Glow is changing that, one opinion at a time. Our mission is to democratise access to insights by making consumer research faster, more transparent and more accessible. We want businesses to be more informed, so they can make better decisions that fuel their growth and support their customers, stakeholders and the broader community. 

How do we help?

We deliver fast, affordable and robust consumer research through our sophisticated online research platform which is powered by panel data and supported by research experts.

Our unique approach enables us to access the opinions of over 100M people all over the world to help our business partners grow. 

Our team

The Glow team is made up of a diverse group of people from multiple backgrounds. We value curiosity, collaboration, honesty, positivity and integrity. We go the extra mile so our clients don’t have to.

Glow is a proud participant in the Data For Good movement, a group of people, businesses and governments that are using data to drive programs of action to build a better world.     

We appreciate and celebrate constant learning, that’s why we provide time and support for personal development as part of our package. 

Perks include flexible remote working structures, a ‘rewards program’ of discounts and offers, and the opportunity to work in a business that’s investing in making a real impact on the world. 

We believe in diversity. We know diverse thinking leads to better decisions. Diverse opinions are the backbone for our business model, so we put talent first, and we back our people to excel in everything they do.

We are a distributed team who work partially remotely. Our team are located in Melbourne, Sydney, London, Hong Kong and Manila and service clients all around the world. Our Australian team connect out of hubs at The Commons in Sydney and Melbourne and we are planning to launch into the US market.
