Business Development Representative

Remote | Sales | Full-time | Fully remote


At Tempo we’re on a mission to help teams build better, together. We are creators of top-selling Atlassian Marketplace apps, supporting more than 29,000 customers, including a third of the Fortune 500 companies, and working with hundreds of Solutions Partners globally. Our solutions help customers orchestrate creation and delivery, so their teams can focus and optimize around their highest priorities. In 2020 and in 2021 we were named Top Atlassian Vendor and we continue to be one of the highest ranked and most heavily used solutions out there.

Our product suite has grown from our popular time-tracking solution, which launched in Iceland in 2009, to resource & capacity planning, project cost tracking, project & program management, and strategic roadmapping. In 2021, Tempo acquired Roadmunk, a roadmapping solution popular with product management teams, and ALM Works, creators of the Structure for Jira suite that delights project and program managers around the world. At the beginning of 2023 Tempo expanded its Strategic Portfolio Management (SPM) suite to include LiquidPlanner’s capacity planning platform and Old Street Solutions (maker of Custom Charts).
