Account Executive

Coursemojo - Remote - Full time

Sales Account Executive

(Remote, Full time)

Coursemojo is a leading ed-tech company, which has developed a best-in-class, curriculum-aligned, AI-powered assistant teacher. “Mojo” is designed to bridge the gap that exists between the high-quality instructional materials that districts have adopted and the diversity of student needs that exist in classrooms. With the goal of supporting both teachers and diverse learners, “Mojo” helps educators differentiate instruction by providing each student (MLL, students with IEPs, advanced students, struggling readers) with targeted, Socratic, one-on-one and small group support (in 50+ languages) in the context of either core class instruction or intervention support.

Coursemojo is looking for a Sales Account Executive to help develop and expand its sales and partnerships capacity. This person will report to the co-CEO, Dacia Toll, who has more than 25 years of leadership experience in the ed sector.

Why is this role important?

We plan to launch ~15 paid, modestly-sized district pilots (~500 students each) at the beginning of the ‘24-25 school year and will then look to build upon early successes and learnings to seed new sales for the spring semester and beyond. This role will be critical to extending our sales capacity beyond our co-CEO, and helping us hone our pitch and sales strategy to potential district clients. This role will also add critical capacity to partnerships with philanthropic and other sector-leading organizations, contributing valuable non-sales revenue to this early stage company.

In the early days, this role will also take on a variety of special projects as needed (notably customer success support for early school-based pilots) which will provide an excellent opportunity to build deep product knowledge. Over time, the role will become a more independent and traditional sales account executive, pursuing leads and closing partnerships, owning the full sales cycle.

The ideal candidate has both a proven ability to sell and previous experience in education (e.g., teaching, school leadership, or edtech product implementation) that they can leverage to partner meaningfully with prospective clients and close sales that will result in strong partnerships.

What will you do?

Sales (60% to start, increasing over time)

  • Co-lead organizational sales strategy development & execution (prospecting, pipeline management, process development, etc.); responsibility for full sales cycle
  • Own advanced work and follow-up for sales meetings, conferences, webinars, etc.
  • Develop sales collateral and tailor for varied stakeholders in advance of calls, conferences, etc.
  • Support preparation, review, and finalization of sales proposals and quotes
  • Lead contracting and billing processes for all Coursemojo clients
  • Maintain and update customer records and forecasting in Salesforce

Philanthropic & Other Strategic Partnerships (20%)

  • Support with the development of philanthropic funding partnerships and serve as lead author on key funding applications
  • Support the development of partnerships with other sector-leading organizations
  • Assist with the tracking and follow-through on grant deliverables (updates, reports, etc.)

Special Projects (20% to start; to decrease)

  • Provide customer support to 1-2 school/district clients
  • Until a marketing lead is hired, support the design and execution of strategic marketing campaigns
  • Partner with internal leaders and teams on high-priority projects

What are we looking for?

Requirements

  • 2+ years of experience with direct sales to schools/school districts; proven sales skills
  • Education or educational technology experience beyond sales (e.g. former teacher/school leader, customer support role with edtech company)
  • Excellent oral and written communicator
  • Excellent organizational skills and attention to detail
  • Willingness to travel up to 30% of the month; due to the expected travel requirements for this role, the ideal candidate is close to a major airport
  • Ability to manage up
  • Ability to self-direct and manage conflicting priorities and change across multiple projects
  • Self-motivated with a natural drive to pursue excellence
  • Strong sense of ownership: will work cross-functionally and own outcomes
