About the role

ScholarSite allows leading experts to run live, cohort-based courses with companies around the world.

We are building  the world’s largest decentralized corporate university  and growing rapidly:

  • 30%+ month on month revenue growth

  • Recurring annual contracts with companies like Stripe, Shopify, Flipkart, Tinder, Accenture and Flexport

  • 1,200+ learners from over 700 companies globally,

  • Recently part of the Y Combinator W22 batch and backed by leading investors including Felicis Ventures, Pioneer Fund, Uncommon Capital and various high profile angels including the founders of Go1, Lyft, Flexport and Betterup.

ScholarSite is looking for its first marketing hire who would be responsible for designing and executing on our growth strategy, focusing on individual seat sales to our cohorts.

You’ll establish a marketing system and process flows that will form the basis of our broader marketing function and be a key member of our management team. You’re enthusiastic about working at an early stage startup, operating with lots of autonomy and building from the ground up.

What you’ll do at ScholarSite:

  • Manage the implementation of a new marketing stack that will allow ScholarSite to track, understand and leverage the consumer communities we interact with (using Hubspot and Apollo)

  • Design a demand generation strategy that consistently fills our cohorts with participants (leveraging email and LinkedIn as primary channels)

  • Design nurture campaigns to leverage our 1.2k alumni and maximize referrals

  • Identify opportunities for product-led growth and work with product and engineering to implement and track performance of these features

  • Build, coach and grow a team of talented individuals that will shape the way we go to market

  • Be accountable for weekly and quarterly revenue goals for individual seat sales

We’d love to hear from you if you have:

  • Experience building marketing systems and process flows for a rapidly growing company

  • Experience across a range of marketing channels including email (setting up outbound and nurture email campaigns, writing copy, AB testing copy), content and PLG

  • Strong analytical focus, basing decisions in data

  • Excellent time management and organizational skills

  • A self-directed, creative and curious nature. You can tackle anything from process automation to drip campaigns with minimal direction, and you consistently execute on goals

Why you’ll love working at ScholarSite:

  • Leadership of the marketing function at a high growth, mission-driven company

  • A fast-paced culture open to new ideas and rapid iteration

  • We’re a kind, hard-working and passionate team

  • Start-up equity, competitive salary and benefits/perks

ScholarSite is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
