The Director of Education Solutions is responsible for understanding and navigating the unique financial, operational, and academic landscapes in educational systems, and for the complex and hands-on curriculum adoption and management processes. Working closely with the VP of Marketing & Sales, this role builds deep and broad relationships with educational leaders, ensuring not just initial buy-in but ongoing success and satisfaction with our programs.

  • Oversee renewals and license expansions within schools, working to deepen our reach and impact.
  • Develop and manage large-scale deals, including district or network-level partnerships.
  • Coordinate with our Customer Success team for kickoff and school setup, ensuring a smooth transition and setup process.
  • Serve as the primary point of contact for school partners, acting as the liaison between the schools and our internal teams.
  • Schedule regular touchpoints with partners to maintain engagement and address any needs or feedback.
  • Accurately document all sales activities in Salesforce (CRM).

Key Competencies of the Role

  • Passionate about the power of personalized learning and adept at conveying its benefits compellingly.
  • Highly entrepreneurial with a creative problem-solving mindset.
  • Able to operate independently in an ambiguous environment with high interdependencies.
  • Skilled at establishing meaningful and lasting relationships and partnerships.

What We Are Looking For

  • You embody the organization’s core values: Prioritize People, Initiate and Innovate, Lifelong Learning, Creative Collaboration, Purposeful Partnerships and Considered Confidence.
  • Deep knowledge of the education landscape and personalized learning models.
  • Demonstrated success in sales and account management, and a track record of meeting ambitious goals.
  • Strong leadership capacity with a minimum of 5 years of relevant experience.
  • Comfortable in a collaborative, start-up/entrepreneurial work environment.
  • Willing to travel frequently with access to a major metropolitan airport.
