The Strategic Partner Development team focuses on ensuring all audiences have access to the company’s learning content/certifications and understand how it supports economic opportunities for all those it serves and the wider ecosystem. It also works hard to support learners from Black and Latinx communities in the USA.

  • Collaborate with key cross-functional teams to ensure strategies your team builds with them are the best possible approaches for the company’s customers and support the goals of key internal stakeholders/the company’s blueprint.
  • Partner with cross functional teams/industry leaders that derive data/insights, which help drive the adoption of the company’s learning experiences among new, emerging cohorts using quantitative and qualitative data (either existing or new).
  • Regularly review and evolve programs with stakeholders to maximize quality of programs and nurture relationships.
  • Partner with the company’s marketing and communication team to highlight successes amongst these new cohorts, illustrating their impact.
  • 8+ years experience as a Program Manager, overseeing/organizing multiple programs and workstreams, collaborating with key stakeholders to keep projects moving forward (business/marketing experience preferred)
  • Experience working closely with own team and cross-functional partners
  • Demonstrated leadership and ability to execute at scale in sales, marketing, partnership programs, or related areas
  • Deep knowledge and passion for the needs of young people
  • Demonstrated understanding of educational technology and personalized learning programs
  • Adept at solving problems that span education and technology
