About the role

You'll own the sales process, from initial contact to closure. You'll own your numbers, activity goals, and build lasting relationships with schools and districts across the country. Before long, you'll become an edtech expert and will confidently speak to ever-changing trends, new features and products to help our customers accomplish their goals.

While our existing traction and brand reputation will set you up for success, this job will require a great deal of creativity, persistence, and entrepreneurship. If you do well, you will play a critical role in the company’s growth trajectory.

You’ll need to understand our product inside and out, and to speak about it differently depending on who you're talking to. Most of all, you should love helping people. We take a consultative approach to sales. We work in service of our users, regardless of whether or not they end up paying us.

  • Are charismatic, both in writing and in conversation (you make a GREAT first impression!)
  • Are excited to get in on the ground floor of a small, rapidly-growing, fast-paced startup
  • Love the challenges, hours, and ups-and-downs of startup life
  • Aren’t afraid of big spreadsheets and number crunching
  • Jump at opportunities break convention and do things differently

  • Flexible work policy. Gone are the days of being in an office from 9-5, Monday through Friday. We recognize there are better ways to measure productivity than counting the number of hours you’re in the office and that sometimes the office isn’t the best place to be productive.
  • Professional development. Each department has a professional development budget and employees are encouraged to take workshops, attend webinars, join associations, and anything else that could help grow their careers. Did we also mention employees get free access to Udemy for Business?
