Skills & Qualifications

We're looking for someone with at least 2-5 years of prior work experience, with a killer work ethic, polished communication skills, infectious positive energy, and a passion for fast-paced and dynamic environments.

You may be a bored digital marketer, consultant, or analyst who is ready to move on to a smaller company. Or you may just be willing to challenge yourself for an incredible opportunity to infuse large companies with the entrepreneurial spirit necessary to evolve in the face of technology-driven change.

Background in technology or online learning is a plus, but we are specifically interested in the following traits:

  • You are entrepreneurial and scrappy
    • You prefer the opportunity that comes from being part of a small team to the predictability that comes with larger organizations. You are comfortable with ambiguity and not afraid of getting your hands dirty.
  • You are highly organized
    • You take great pride in your organizational skills. You have alarmingly impressive skills with your calendar and inbox, and strong opinions on productivity hacks and note-taking approaches.
  • You are a strong communicator
    • You can communicate in a structured, concise, and compelling way with our corporate partners and our internal teams of software developers, UX designers, product managers, instructional designers, and sales reps.
  • You are savvy with data
    • You know how to translate data into insights for our partners and internal product team. You are an unabashed fan of spreadsheets, and can slice, dice, and visualize data to uncover important trends in product engagement.
  • You have a sharp product sense
    • You can translate qualitative and quantitative user feedback into actionable items for the product team. You keep metrics top-of-mind and know what it takes for our customers and our business to succeed.
  • You are collaborative but self-directed
    • You enjoy working with others, but are independent and resourceful and require minimal guidance. You are not possessive of ideas or thin-skinned when it comes to critique.


  • Action Oriented
  • Dealing with Ambiguity
  • Composure
  • Customer Focus
  • Process Management
  • Peer Relationships
  • Priority Setting
  • Problem Solving
  • Written Communications
  • Technical Learning
