You will build relationships with some of the largest districts across the country, each with distinct technical and instructional needs. Working closely with our field sales team, you will apply your technical expertise and consultative skills to architect integration solutions that wow school districts, and result in meaningful product engagement for teachers and students.
Why You’ll Love This Role:
You will have the opportunity to collaborate with some of the top K-12 school districts in the country to help solve problems. Your solutions will make a meaningful impact on teachers and students, and can result in improving student outcomes. As the face of Newsela out in the market, you will have the opportunity to represent the future of education, enhance how districts and teachers engage students, and provide time-saving approaches that help educators. You’ll do all of this, while being part of a fast-growing, highly collaborative team energized by Newsela’s mission and impact.
Why We’ll Love You:
You are a creative, methodical problem solver with 5+ years experience working in a customer solutions architect capacity (bonus points if you have experience in EdTech). You have exceptional communication skills and are adept at identifying true needs, and designing solutions that are mutually beneficial. You have a thorough understanding of the leading industry interoperability standards (specifically SSO, Rostering and LMS platforms), and have a natural curiosity to explore unique ways of applying these standards to problems. You thrive in a fast-paced and highly collaborative environment, and are able to successfully manage multiple projects while maintaining deadlines. You delight in finding creative solutions to tricky problems, and have a knack for creating clear internal and external documentation outlining your solutions.
