Head of Sales (Remote)

LearnWell - Remote - Full time

LearnWell is specialized and dedicated to supporting the 49% of all students who may be struggling with an underlying mental health condition—such as depression, anxiety or other mood disorders—which often manifest in self-destructive behavior, substance use, and eating disorders. In partnership with treatment facilities and school districts, we provide an integrated set of academic and mental wellness services for students and their families throughout the continuum of care.

We are hiring a Head of K-12 Sales to establish a new team at LearnWell as we expand more deeply into this market segment with a unique mental health counseling service. We expect this new service to be a crucial support for school districts and we anticipate high demand.

  • Leverage existing LearnWell district relationships, as well as one’s own existing district relationships to effectively sell and cross-sell the portfolio of LearnWell services
  • Collaborate with the CEO and other management team members to guide continued growth of the business

The right candidate will bring the leadership skills and K-12 domain expertise to establish relationships with district decision-makers.

Qualifications for the role:

  • Seven years of sales experience, with at least three years of K-12 sales management experience
