Mission: To empower marketers to do the best work of their careers.
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 4,800 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.
At Act-On, we’re growing fast, working hard, and fiercely dedicated to our customers. We truly believe in Act-On's potential to change the world of marketing, and we're looking for a select group of individuals up to the challenge to see that vision through.
The Act-On crew is motivated, enthusiastic, goal-oriented, and not afraid to let loose for a little fun when the time is right. Work is important. And so are stocked kitchens, scooter races, and a lighthearted atmosphere that facilitates flexibility, team cooperation, and dedication to the company cause.
I worked at Act-On Software full-time (More than 3 years)
I joined Act-On 4 years ago in a product capacity. At first, the company seemed a bit chaotic. It felt like a start up that never decided what it wanted to be when it grew up. However, the company quickly brought in an excellent new management team that started turning the company around.
New sales methodology, new marketing campaigns, new branding, new product, new roadmap. Everything was new. It was a ton of hard work but the company managed to rebrand itself into an amazing marketing automation vendor for the mid market. There is still some of that turn around going on, but I would say that the company is now back on the right path to success.
Some of the highlights for me:
* World class management team out of some of the most successful companies out there.
* Great product team capable of putting out good products even with limited resources
* Marketing team that is world class in brand building
* Customer success team that goes above and beyond in keeping Act-On's customers happy.
* People team that's always willing to help the front line folks.
Limited resources, which is a problem at every company but a bit more so at Act-On.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing. You're on the right path.
I applied online. I interviewed at Act-On Software.
Applied online and received an email a week later asking for a phone conversation with HR. Call with woman from HR went really well and asked me to speak with hiring manager the following day. Once again, call with hiring manager went really well and he told me that I would hear back from them regarding next steps in a few days time. After not hearing anything back for a week I sent a follow up note to the HR and now it is another week later and I've received zero response.
