Education Sales Manager

Stile Education - Los Angeles, California - Full time

At Stile, we create world-class resources for science teachers (we call them superheroes, because… they are).

Over the last few years, our web-based teaching and learning resource has been used in classrooms around the world to engage students in real-world science and help them build the skills they’ll need to thrive. Today, almost half a million students and their science teachers use Stile.

We’re looking for a passionate current or former science teacher to join our US team as an Education Sales Manager.

This position is perfect for a teacher looking to expand their impact beyond the classroom and enhance the education of tens of thousands of students. With a combination of working from home and visiting schools, it’s also ideal for anyone looking for a more flexible working environment. (That’s right - you can grab a snack without waiting for a bell to sound!)

Ultimately you would be responsible for providing support to teachers as they experience using Stile for the first time. You’d be regularly visiting schools to speak with science teachers about how they can improve their teaching and learning practice using Stile. You’ll join classrooms, run presentations, and build relationships with science teachers and perhaps even further afield.

This is a sales role, but it’s a sales role like no other. It’s fun, light and centered around a genuine mission to better science education. You don’t need any sales experience - we’ll teach you everything you need to know.

The Details

What’s in it for you:

  • You’ll join an amazing 60-strong team of educators, scientists, artists and engineers. Specifically, you'll be one of the first to join our US based team. Stile is a workplace where everyone genuinely cares about, and is working towards, improving scientific literacy amongst our young citizens.
  • You’ll be extremely well supported. We value our people, and it’s important to us that they’re happy. We have strong management and feedback frameworks and offer generous benefits.
  • You’ll be working on something that really matters. In partnership with teachers, we’re coaching students to become problem solvers and critical thinkers.
  • You’ll build an incredible network of teachers, district and school leaders and STEM professionals.
  • Flexibility. We expect that you work hard, but you do so from home and you’re the master of your own schedule.
  • A Mac laptop, phone allowance, travel reimbursement and a generous home office allowance.
  • Generous PTO, 100% of health, vision and dental insurance and employer contributions to 401(k).

How you’ll spend your time

Visiting schools and discussing best practice science teaching with like-minded educators

The majority of your time will be spent on the road, visiting schools and districts.

These visits mostly occur as a school moves through a trial of Stile. To begin with, you’ll pop into schools and districts for scheduled introductory chats with science department chairs, science curriculum specialists or other school or district leaders. From there, you’ll run PD for the science department, ensuring they’re confident using Stile in the classroom. You might drop into a staffroom with morning tea or find yourself teaching a class to model best practice teaching with Stile. Ultimately, you’re looking to form strong relationships with teachers and leadership.

If you ask the teachers in our Sales Team, they’ll tell you this is the best part of this job! Stile - our resources and our service - has an incredible reputation, and it’s rewarding to use your passion and expertise in a way that really improves the quality of science teaching and learning.

Building community

Building relationships with those in the local STEM community is key to being successful in this role. For this reason, you’ll be in regular attendance at local events and conferences. Once you have established a network, you’ll even find yourself hosting events to unite leaders within the community to share ideas.

Continuing to hone your own skills and knowledge

We’re life-long learners at Stile, so we’re always looking to improve our practice. You’ll frequently find yourself reading up on the latest negotiation strategies, or learning about the latest trends in education technology. You can also expect to spend time peer-reviewing work with your colleagues, ensuring we’re always delivering the highest quality service possible. The US team will also get together regularly for in person training and planning (Covid willing, of course).

A bit more about you

  • It’s not a deal-breaker, but you’re probably a middle or high school science teacher with a few years of experience under your belt. You may have even worked in educational sales or account management with a K-12 science digital resource.
  • You’re knowledgeable about science education and you’re across the latest trends in education technology, pedagogy and NGSS. Importantly, you share our passion for improving science education in the US, and genuinely want to help ensure our young people leave school ready to tackle tomorrow’s problems.
  • You are likeable and empathetic. A strong communicator that can build positive relationships and really put yourself in someone else’s shoes; understanding their problems and working to help fix them.
  • You’re eager to learn. Super eager. You soak up feedback, incorporate it, and are constantly driven to be better. You can’t help it.
  • You’re proactive and strategic. A hard worker who gets stuff done. You’re motivated to work independently, but love contributing in a team environment.

Hours and location

This is a full time, permanent role. When you’re not on the road, you will be working from home or in a Stile co-working space - we’ll ensure you are set up with everything you need to be productive.

Work hours are flexible, but generally fall in line with a typical 9-5 day. Usually your school visits and PD sessions will run before or after school, or anything in between.

You’ll be spending lots of time driving to schools and districts, so you’ll need your own car (don’t worry, we cover your expenses). Semi-regular travel will be required to meet with schools in the Greater Bay area, where we’ll hire a car and book a hotel for your stay.
