About Concourse

Concourse is a tech startup company that is reinventing college admissions in order to create more access to higher education. Our mission is to bring opportunities and scholarships to underserved students by flipping the script on admissions and having colleges come to students.

This is a groundbreaking approach that is attracting the attention of academic professionals and edtech thought leaders and has already delivered thousands of admission offers and over $100 million in scholarships to college-bound students around the world.

We are aiming high, seeking to change the world by rethinking and reinventing a college admission system that has not evolved in decades, in order to level the playing field and create more opportunities for students.

About the Position

We are looking for someone tech-savvy and counselor-friendly to join our team. Someone who is comfortable working with software products, with some background in college counseling or admissions, able to give presentations and work with students on a daily basis. This person should be excited about our mission to create more access to higher education.

Responsibilities

  • Present and demonstrate Concourse software to secondary school users
  • Create/update presentations and training materials 
  • Train new counselors on the Concourse platform
  • Provide user support via Concourse administrative tools and troubleshooting
  • Assist in facilitating Concourse events
  • Other responsibilities as required and mutually agreed

Recommended Background

3+ years of college counseling or admissions experience; or other job related to higher education.

Success Factors

The successful candidate will have:

  • Experience presenting to various audiences
  • Excellent writing and communication skills 
  • Fluency working with computers and software products
  • Patience working with all types of users
  • Strong initiative and the ability to run with major projects with minimal supervision
  • Ability to think at a high level about company strategy and vision
  • Good collaboration skills, working virtually with a distributed team

What is Cool About This Job

Your work at Concourse has the potential to improve the lives of millions of students around the world. 

You will be an important player in a growing company that is tackling a huge problem and gaining national attention. You will have the opportunity to shape our product, and work with an awesome team in a fair, ethical, productive, fun workplace.

We are a remote native company.  You can work from home, or from a tropical island *, or pretty much anywhere you like. We live on Slack and Zoom.  There is much flexibility as long as you are communicating well and getting your work done.  You will have a ton of freedom.

Once in a while we meet in person (typically in the New York City area) and we have fun gatherings together. This is a great team.

What is Challenging About This Job

You have to be a self starter, able to work without a lot of supervision. We are a startup, which means there are times when it is all-hands-on-deck and we all have to dig in and help on a project. Sometimes we have to work to difficult deadlines in order to capitalize on opportunities.

There will not necessarily be someone checking in on you every day to see how you are doing. If you run into problems, you have to be proactive and ask team members for help.
