About RaiseMe
At RaiseMe, we’re focused on ensuring that all students have the opportunity to achieve their college and career ambitions. We’re looking for passionate, high-achievers who want to build a company that will help millions of students. If that’s you, join our team!

RaiseMe + you

RaiseMe is looking to add to our high-performing Districts and Community College Partnership team that drives educator-to-student driven adoption of the product. We’re seeking a talented, growth-oriented individual with experience working in the education industry (edtech or education) to drive educator adoption of RaiseMe leading to new student growth.

What would you do?

  • Create a scalable pipeline (in Salesforce) for new outreach and managing existing district and college access partners.
  • Identify prospective district/community college partners based on key metrics you can define, gauging whether or not they would be successful using RaiseMe, allowing you to be strategic about district outreach in our key states.
  • Leverage your 2-4 years of experience working within the education industry (high school districts, community colleges, in the education space as an educator, or part of an edtech company) to inform an effective approach to outreach.
  • Assess our partnership process and continuously question the current way we work, and think big about how we can improve it.
  • Support our District Partnership Managers/Community College Managers with research documents, demo planning and partnership planning.
  • Identify opportunities to improve our product offering based on your deep understanding of the needs of our students, counselors, educators, and district/community college administrators.
  • Influence our student and educator messaging strategy that reaches hundreds of thousands of users every month.

This job is for you if you…

  • are a doer. You are driven, self-motivated, and a self-starter who brings your ideas to life and takes pride in results. You are resourceful and find ways to get things done regardless of the obstacles.
  • are a risk-taker. You are not fearful of failure and realize that failure is often a step closer to figuring out what works. Taking on complex challenges excites you, even if you have to ask for help or spend some time figuring out where to begin.
  • are creative in thinking of different ways to engage our district partners who are resistant to change.
  • have a strong understanding of the education landscape/construct of schools and are respectful of what their day to day looks like. It is because of this that you’re able to be creative in thinking critically about how to solve their problems rather than add to them.
  • are organized. You are detail oriented and can handle having a variety of different projects on your plate at one time because you are good at keeping track of them. You can create structure for yourself to be most successful.
  • are a talented communicator. You enjoy communicating with people and have a strong awareness of those around you. You are thoughtful about the ways you communicate and the impact that may have on a client; you are passionate about the cause, and are able to rally everyone around you.
  • are confident but self-critical. You are confident in your skills and the quality of your work product. At the same time you are not afraid to ask for help and want to constantly be improving. You value honest, action-oriented feedback and believe that we can use it as a tool to improve as a team.
  • are mission-driven: You want to use your talents to make the world a better place and you are in a rush to do it. You may have worked in education or edtech before or your desire to improve education may come through in other experiences from your life.
