In 2008, we founded Act-On with big ambitions of our own. We saw a massive change in the way people were approaching buying decisions (i.e., the new “buyer’s journey”) and a corresponding need for marketers to better engage and interact with prospects online. We also saw an opportunity for marketers to use technology to directly drive business.
At the time, marketing technology solutions were designed for the IT department, not for the marketer. Nothing worked “out of the box.” These were complex marketing solutions requiring long, expensive implementation periods and dedicated personnel.
We built Act-On for the 21st century marketer: We made it simple to operate, but powerful in generating results; elegant in its user experience, yet comprehensive in its functionality; effective out-of the box, yet extensive in its ability to integrate.
Today, marketing and sales teams at over 3,000 companies use Act-On to drive their business.
Simplicity, attention to detail, and accountability are the core values that drive everything we do at Act-On.
We find simple solutions to complex problems; we build straightforward, user-friendly applications; and we ensure that we’re easy to do business with.
We know that paying scrupulous attention to detail builds a robust, resilient business – and truly delights our customers.
And finally, we prize accountability. At Act-On we are accountable to each other as we work to build a great company; and we are accountable to you, our customers and partners, as we strive to empower your success.

I have been working at Act-On Software full-time (More than a year)
No matter where you work, the only factor is the people. From top management, to the new person that just started. The company culture is to hire self motivated, high achievers and good people. Any complaints that you see are biased on the individuals lack of talent, preparedness and willingness to put in the time. Work-life Balance is what you make of it, "how productive are you in a given period of time?" The future is bright and anybody on this bullet train is in for a crazy-fun ride. Accolades are the best part!!
On-boarding training could be more intensive On going best practices training on a quarterly basis More team related events for growth and plain old fun
Advice to Management
More communication down line More involvement in the growth of the company Cross training with leaders, best performers and peers

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Act-On Software (Beaverton, OR) in April 2015.
Three mutually exclusive interviewers. Each with a different fit assessment. The interview was on location in Beaverton, Oregon with Corporate Controller, Senior Financial Accountant, and Collections Manager. Right from the start the fit felt right to me and I was able to answer honestly and truthfully. This was very important for me as well as the culture fit.
