What You’ll Do

As a brand new role for us at Presence, the Director of Opportunities is a hybrid role that will be responsible for expanding relationships and opportunities for growth, along with fully helping define the details of this role. The awesome person that takes this on will work directly with our Founder and Chief Executive Officer to primarily focus between partnership development and team growth, along with other creative opportunities for growth. A brief list below..

  • Partnerships, (Integrations, Sales/Marketing Channels)
  • Talent Acquisition, Onboarding, Culture
  • Events, Sponsorships, Conferences
  • Growth Opportunities

What We’re Made Of

We’ve created well built teams in marketing, sales, happiness, and product development and this position will be working with them all to provide opportunities at every angle for growth. This is a new focus area for us and we’re looking for someone that can help finish this paragraph as we build the team out in the future.

What You’re Made Of

You love software, especially edtech and if you could, would have trading cards for each one

  • You understand our software, its place in the industry, and the problems it solves, intimately, and you’re pumped to drive our growth forward
  • Your mind is open- you love trying new things and generating new ideas, especially in a challenging environment
  • You not only welcome feedback, but thrive on it, working to be better every day
  • You’re a great listener, challenge the status quo, and question everything
  • You love people, especially when you have the chance to help them
  • You’re organized and methodical, sometimes so much that you start to organize how you are organized but realize that’s probably too much

We love trying new things and learning, and recognize that “we must always be willing to accept that everything we know is wrong.” If you’re not only comfortable with that, but look forward to moments of failure and growth, you’re looking at the right company.

Your Qualities

  • Fast-paced performance competitive personality (self-driven to meet and beat goals)
  • Independent/Self-Starter (point you in a direction and you’ll sprint)
  • Love communicating (not afraid to be the one to start the conversations)
  • Growth-oriented (passionate about improving yourself and those around you)
  • Student Affairs/Student Government/Student leadership experience
  • You’re a creative problem solver, great at coming up with new ways to think about challenges
  • You’re a dreamer, and think nothing is impossible with hard work

Bonus Qualities

  • Software development experience
  • Experience buying software and/or implemented software for an institution
  • Experience hiring and/or recruiting people
  • Conference, sponsorship, and/or tradeshow experience

Our Typical Process

  1. We’ll reach out for a quick introductory call to learn more about each other.
  2. If we’re excited, you’ll interview with our Chief Executive Officer.
