We want clever developers, smart marketers and skilled managers. People with a business brain and a charitable heart.
We are offering a full-time position starting November 2014 as
Academic Director (m/f)
For our branch office in Berlin, we are looking to hire a goal-driven, tenacious and well connected Director of Academic Partnerships (m/f), to co-head the Academic Partnerships team. This team is in charge of sourcing and shaping the content for our platform: from course acquisition to course development and instructor support as well as course evaluation and monetisation. You will become part of a fast-growing Internet start-up in one of the hottest cities in Europe. In general, we want someone who brings an extensive network in the academic field and the creativity and commercial drive to help us grow – making sure the company can maximise its performance.
The Academic Partnerships team is headed by two directors, one of them taking a strategic outlook, focusing on establishing new partnerships, deal-making and stakeholder management, the other one being in charge of the internal management, focusing on staff management and team leadership, ensuring the team’s KPI/OKR are met. While the latter position is filled, we are looking for the ideal candidate to fit the first.
In this vibrant, but also challenging role, you do not simply execute according to an existing pre-defined model. We are inventing, conceptualising, prototyping and explaining a wholly new product category in the newly emergent market for online education. You will continuously have to reevaluate and refine our partnership strategy to adapt it to new insights. Get ready for a fast-paced environment and the opportunity to help shape the future of European higher education.
A Master’s degree is a requirement, advanced academic credentials such as a Ph.D. are considered an asset.
