Account Executive, Northern Europe/ DACH



Sales & Business Development
Posted on Tuesday, December 13, 2022
Whispli is an Australian company, headquartered in Sydney and with offices in Paris and Boston. Founded in 2015, Whispli was part of the Y-Combinator program, winner of several awards for product-excellence, and is now looking to expand more rapidly in Europe and the Americas.
Whispli’s product provides a secure platform for employees to anonymously report suspected misconduct or wrongdoing to their organisations; Whispli thus creates a trusted channel for confidential conversations between staff and management. Management can then verify the information and act upon it before it further impacts the individual, or becomes public and harms the organisation’s brand and reputation. (See for more information)
