Join our stealth-stage EdTech startup, where we're not just building another learning platform – we're on a mission to transform the US education system. As a visionary leader of our AI-enabled Learning Management Software (LMS), you'll be at the forefront of this educational revolution.

This is not your typical leadership role. We're seeking an evangelist and visionary who can drive substantial user adoption and shape the future of learning on a global scale. You'll be leveraging generative AI to boost productivity and customer engagement, without the burden of traditional executive responsibilities like day-to-day operations and team management.

Your mission will be to drive user adoption in a crowded sector, directly impacting the way students engage with academic content. Your proven experience in selling EdTech products and strong relationships with procurement departments of districts and states will be crucial to your success.

Imagine having the power to transform education for millions of students and teachers across the US. If you're ready to champion this cause, build a strong personal brand, and thrive in a dynamic environment – we want you on our team. Together, let's leverage the power of AI to revolutionize learning!

What you will be doing

  • Developing and implementing a strategic sales plan targeting US education providers.
  • Establishing and managing strategic partnerships with key educational institutions.
  • Driving initiatives to increase user adoption and customer satisfaction.
  • Building and maintaining a personal brand through public speaking, publishing, and thought leadership in the education and AI sectors.

What you will NOT be doing
