Designlab is looking for a talented Admissions Rep to help us expand our rapidly-growing online education platform. Think one part career advisor, one part guide to all things product design, and one part salesperson. You’ll be the first point of contact for people looking to change their careers, so while this role is sales focused, we also require someone with a high level of emotional intelligence to nurture future students towards their full potential and optimal career path.
We’re a nimble, product-driven team focused on building the best experience in the world for creative skills training, and thousands of students across the globe have already advanced their skills and changed careers with our help.
Our mission is to empower creators to do the work they love, and this extends to our internal philosophy of how we work. Thanks to our best-in-class product with rave reviews, we’ve built a passionate community of students, mentors and alumni, and we’d like to expand our focus on admissions to hit our next level of scale.
The right candidate has a strong working knowledge of the design industry and past experience to back it up – a background in education is also a plus. The ideal candidate is entrepreneurial and self-directed, and can work well in an unstructured environment. While we’re primarily looking at someone with an admissions background, we’ll consider candidates who’ve developed exceptional interpersonal skills through other roles like account management or customer success. Ultimately, we’re looking for someone who can take a consultative approach to sales, and advise potential students on what their best options would be in switching careers to UX design.
We’re also interested in someone who’s capable of extending their presence from initial point of contact to acting as a community resource for enrolled students.
