Our successful products have established us as a global market leader, and our new innovative products promise enormous growth potential. This is an individual contributor opportunity to drive immediate value by developing high-quality tender responses for retail, hospitality, healthcare, manufacturing, services, distribution and public sector industries.

You’ll work closely with our presales, marketing, services and sales teams, focussing on expertly coordinating bid activities, managing the tender life cycle with equanimity, and ensuring the delivery of on-time and superior tender responses.

You’ll be highly organised, task-focused and disciplined, with extensive writing experience in marketing or sales-related materials.

• Driving quality control, editing and proofreading contributions to ensure a consistent voice is communicated throughout the entire proposal, which includes embedding win theme strategies within our responses
• Guiding the development of executive summaries and win themes to create compelling responses
• Streamlining the tender cycle process and identifying areas of potential growth, as well as areas where we can eliminate existing inefficiencies


Ideally, you’ll have:
• BA/BS degree or equivalent experience (writing, marketing, general business)
• Experience in bids and project management
• Software industry experience
• Successful track record of preparing bid responses within a fast-paced and deadline-driven environment
