Enterprise Account Executive

Now Hiring - Sydney, Australia


Joyous is employee feedback for the modern large enterprise, and it’s very different to anything else on the market. Joyous emphasizes transparent, actionable feedback and encourages conversations around important topics like culture, well-being and engagement. It’s the polar opposite of the anonymous survey and is particularly suited to agile enterprises as well as those on the journey towards agile.

Our clients use Joyous for a range of feedback, including topics that are specific to their business. They’re very happy to explain the difference that Joyous has made to their peoples’ lives at work.

Joyous is headquartered in New Zealand, which has a vibrant tech scene that’s home to many world-leading software businesses. Our founding team is well-known, and we have world-class investors committed to our cause. The market is huge, and the product is way ahead of the competition.
