Customer Success Manager - Los Angeles

Wonderschool - Los Angeles, CA - Full time


At Wonderschool ( our mission is to provide quality child care to every child in the world. There is a major shortage of childcare and preschools in the United States and we believe one of the best ways to increase access for families is to grow supply through starting in-home child care and preschools. We work with talented teachers and parents to start high quality, licensed in-home early childhood programs. We provide assistance with licensing, setting up a classroom, setting pricing, building a website, managing payments, and everything in between. Our software allows teachers to manage their students, parents, and their school from one dashboard, reducing administrative stress and burden and allowing teachers to focus on what they do best – caring for and educating children. Parents come to Wonderschool to find programs, schedule visits, enroll their children, and make payments.

We currently have a presence in the greater New York area and in the West Coast and are focused on partnering with additional talented educators and caregivers to offer programs in their communities.

Wonderschool is backed by First Round Capital and a number of other respected Seed and Series A firms like 500 Startups, Lerer Ventures, Edelweiss VC, Cross Culture Ventures and Uncork Capital.
