April showed that Austin tech’s spring swoon may not continue into summer. 

In April, six local companies raised a combined $203.7 million in new funding. Arrive Logistics bucked the trend of office closures when it announced new offices in Phoenix and Columbus, Ohio. And even though the news broke on May 2, we’re including it: Per the Austin American-Statesman, online bus booking platform CharterUp is moving its headquarters from Atlanta to Austin and will make 100 hires here.

Will this momentum carry into May? It’s too early to say, but Instapage, ePayPolicy and BigCommerce all provide reasons to be optimistic. All three are hiring at a time when other companies are tightening their belts. Further, BigCommerce recently announced a major international expansion, creating new opportunities for employees at its Austin headquarters.

Continue reading to learn more about this trio of companies, the roles they’re hiring for and some of their standout perks and benefits.

What BigCommerce does: BigCommerce offers e-commerce solutions for B2C and B2B companies across a wide variety of industries, including manufacturing, apparel and fashion, and automotive.

 

CSM leaders wanted: BigCommerce has an opening for a manager of customer success management, and Neal McCoy, VP of professional services customer support, told Built In Austin this past December what the company expects from its CSM leaders.

“As a service provider, there is constant change in our product, competition and market forces,” McCoy said. “Customer success leaders need to establish a ritualistic approach for evaluating the competitive landscape, its influence on your key performance indicators and making incremental adjustments over time. Sometimes wholesale changes are needed but should be done sparingly to keep the focus on what matters — the success of our customers.”

 

Going (more) global: In April, BigCommerce announced it was expanding into five new markets: Poland, Romania, India, the United Arab Emirates and South Africa. The company already has customers in 150 countries and offices in London, Kyiv, San Francisco and Sydney, in addition to its Austin headquarters.

What ePayPolicy does: Insurance agencies, brokers and carriers use ePayPolicy’s technology to make payments faster and more efficient.

 

A spectrum of sales roles: ePayPolicy is currently hiring for its sales team and has openings for both entry-level talent and veteran sellers and leaders. The entry-level role is for a business development representative, which requires one to two years of sales or BDR experience. There are two openings on the enterprise sales side, one for an enterprise account manager and one for a head of enterprise sales. Both roles require more than seven years of experience, with the head of sales role requiring a combination of management and sales experience.

 

Strike a balance: Perks that help employees maintain a positive work-life balance include unlimited PTO, a flexible work schedule and restricted working hours. Parental leave is also available, which includes adoptive and foster parents. On days when employees come into the office, they are treated to a kitchen fully stocked with snacks and lunch.

What Instapage does: Marketers use Instapage’s technology to build, test and deploy landing pages designed to convert.

 

Directing demand: Instapage is hiring a director of demand generation, a role for an experienced marketer who has built and executed demand-generation strategies and led marketing teams. Instapage is seeking candidates with project management capabilities who are data-oriented and have experience working cross-functionally, specifically with sales, sales operations and product teams.

 

Supporting remote workers: Instapage is a fully remote company and its employees receive a monthly work-from-home stipend that maxes out at $465. Additionally, flexible work hours are offered and team members have the option to camp out in a coworking space twice a week.
