We are growing fast (5x increase in revenue over 18 months), and welcome new teammates who’ll pitch in to help expand our course offerings and global reach.

The Opportunity

As an Admissions Manager, you’ll use your combination of (consultative) sales and people skills to ensure that prospective Springboard students have a superb pre-enrollment experience, thereby generating more revenue for the company.

  • Driving students through the admissions pipeline by reviewing applications, conducting phone interviews, and supporting candidates at each stage of the process.
  • Planning and hosting live online info-sessions for prospective students to learn about Springboard.
  • Creating a better user experience for prospective applicants.
  • Maintaining a knowledge base / FAQ for prospective students.
  • Identifying opportunities and testing strategies to improve yield of high-quality candidates and the ultimate learning success of our student community - Springboard is a startup, and there are always more ideas than people to act on them.
