  • Use the partnerships team’s wealth of knowledge around current best practices, andragogy, growth, and existing partner districts and impact cases to leverage in your conversations.
  • Identify top-of-the-funnel opportunities, qualify leads, and begin setting meetings for the sales team.

Within your first three months, you'll:

  • Become an expert at answering frequently asked questions about the platform to any potentially interested instructional coaches, administration leaders, or end users.
  • Use our CRM (Hubspot) to track and successfully hit KPIs—number of emails sent, calls made, meetings set, and rate of conversion to qualified leads.
  • Identify potential blockers to growth by sharing your insights with the sales team to help us streamline our processes.

Within your first year, you'll:

  • Meet and exceed individual and team sales goals.
  • Help run point on pulling leads from webinars, conferences, email campaigns, and social media mentions.
