Sales and Engagement (Freelance with potential for Full Time)

Better World Ed - New York, NY or Remote - Part time

Better World Ed (www.BetterWorldEd.org) is a “curriculum integration” that brings SEL and academics to life. Our wordless videos and short stories help students immerse in math, reading, and writing through learning about diverse cultures and perspectives around the world.

We call this "Global SEL": Global Social & Emotional Learning.

Timing has never been better for this role: we’ve now got a library of over 50 wordless videos (paired with 150+ stories and lesson plans) from over a dozen countries that can help educators teach almost any Grade 1-6 math concept and many other academic disciplines. Now it's time to broaden and deepen our reach and impact. That's where you come in.

YOUR ROLE: 

  1. Sell: Reach & inspire educators and school leaders through school and district engagement, ed organization partnerships, EdTech distribution partnerships, media distribution partnerships, conferences, speaking engagements, creative media-based marketing, and several new strategies.
  2. Mobilize Community: Design content and strategies to help passionate educators and influencers to engage their peers and grow our pipeline. Design referral and feedback systems to grow sales and engagement.
  3. Create Content: Support educators and the general public in understanding why captivating Global SEL is so critical for every student. Leverage existing Learning Journey videos and stories, as well as our Visual Lesson Plan videos, to design powerful "content loop" opportunities (http://firstround.com/review/pinterest-and-grubhubs-former-growth-lead-on-building-content-loops).

You:

  • Have experience with digital and ground sales (inbound and outbound, ideally) for products in education or beyond
  • Have a deep understanding of school and district budgeting and cycles
  • Are ready to design a sales and marketing strategy from the ground up to engage thousands of schools in the US and beyond
  • Support quickly-adapting environments that don't have the ideal support structure and that require autonomous, collaborative, and resilient effort
  • Hold yourself and others accountable through clear communication and effective goal setting
  • Have the hard conversations without (much) procrastination and take on the most important goals first, with curiosity and energy
  • Are becoming a humble learner again and again, every single day
  • Love hard, unglamorous effort. We need to know you’ve learned the indescribable value of being gritty and resilient. That your purpose helps you act with persistence and passion
  • Are eager to sell with an effective, non-pushy approach. Example: https://blog.hubspot.com/sales/how-to-sell-anything-to-anybody
