What We’re Looking For :|
2U is looking for a Manager of Business Development
Why should you work for us in Business Development?
“Private Company Solves US Education Problem.” – Forbes
“2U is the first startup of its kind to offer full degree programs online at top-tier universities. It’s also the most highly funded.” – Mashable, 5 Startups Transforming Higher Education
Those are 2 of our favorite reasons, and there are plenty more (2u.com/press if you’re interested). We’re looking for savvy professionals who are passionate about transforming higher ed and joining an innovative team dedicated to disrupting the existing education model.
What makes you perfect for this job? So glad you asked!
You love identifying, negotiating and closing multi-million dollar deals; you’re great at strategizing at all org levels too.
The Online Marketing community knows you by name (or maybe your people know their people).
You are a rock star individual contributor, but you also have expertise that you love sharing with a hungry go-getter team.
You have that wow factor, and are looking for a company that has the same.
The fine print:
You must love & believe in higher education.
Deal structures pertaining to Online Marketing Campaigns (CPC, CPM, CPL, Flat Fee) should be second nature to you.
You love startup life (ahem- jeans everyday), but you’re excited for the company to be in growth mode.
Getting out in front of people is part of the gig: 65% travel.
You cannot be an asshole…seriously: http://2u.com/news/how-to-get-hired-at-a-killer-startup/.
