About Microverse

We believe the place where you are born shouldn't determine your opportunities in life. We provide access to global opportunities by offering a world-class education no matter where you come from.

Microverse is an online school for software developers where students learn to work remotely with people from around the world. Students don't pay tuition until they get hired and start a global career. As of today, we have students in 100+ countries, and more than 90% of our alumni get a job within 6 months with an average salary increase of 240% working for companies like Microsoft or VMWare.

We are backed by amazing investors worldwide, including Y Combinator, Northzone, General Catalyst, and many world-class angel investors, such as Paul Graham, Paul Buchheit (the creator of Gmail), Kevin Hartz (the founder of Eventbrite), and Erica Brescia (Github's COO).

We are a passionate and fast-moving team of global citizens working remotely from 12+ countries. Being remote-first and transparent, we take pride in the amazing remote culture we are building, while also making time for in-person time with team members around the world. We are a small but mighty team of curious, life-long learners, who love tackling challenges and helping shape the future of education.

Talent is universal, but opportunity is not. We're on a mission to change that. With the recent closing of our Series A, there has never been a more exciting time to join our growing team.

Job Description

While our approach to education is global, our students' life decisions are influenced by their local environment. Your job will be to fully own the Latin American (LatAm) market, helping establish Microverse as a leading player helping people start international careers, building trust with our audience, and driving our ambitious and fast-growing enrollment targets to provide access to a world-class education to more people every day.

As the LatAm Regional Manager, you will report to the Head of Marketing and work closely with the Marketing and Admission teams. You should have a strong entrepreneurial background, strategic consulting experience, or have worked launching products at a tech startup within our key markets (Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, and Brazil). The ideal candidate will be a passionate, hands-on, strategic, entrepreneurial, and customer-centric professional who is ready to join a high-growth startup.

Responsibilities

  • Develop relationships with key partners (media, influencers, employers, universities, meetups, events, etc.)
  • Own the LatAm acquisition budget and optimize its allocation
  • Own all communication and product positioning in LatAm (English, Spanish, & Portuguese)
  • Build community, both locally and regionally
  • Perform localization for each of our key markets (e.g. localized landing pages, ads, etc)
  • Perform reporting on all key metrics for LatAm
  • Propose product changes to continuously grow and convert our target market

  • Have previous strategic consulting or entrepreneurial experience
  • Demonstrate ability to switch from strategic thinking to tactical operations

  • Demonstrate exceptional networking and people skills
  • Are data-driven and outcomes-oriented

  • Are eager to experiment and learn
  • Consider yourself a global citizen and are passionate about making opportunities more equally distributed around the world
  • Demonstrate a passion for the learning and education sector
