Who We Are:
AwardSpring is an established and fast-growing Software as a Service (SaaS) start-up that partners with colleges and foundations to help them award scholarships and grants. We want to make it as easy as possible for students to apply for and receive scholarship money, and as easy as possible for institutions to deliver that money and raise more money for future students.
Bias for Action: We are a small team that is in full growth mode at the moment. We all wear a lot of hats (figuratively), and we have a deep appreciation for showing ownership and accountability to our peers and customers (literally).
Find A Way: We have found that there is not always an easy answer to every question or issue that arises. Yet, we strive to be creative and find a way to simplify things every day. Together, we find a way to remove every roadblock.
Be Human: After all, we are people (robots – please do not apply). We like to have a human voice and show empathy and friendliness to everyone we interact with.
Keep Improving: We accept that we are not perfect, but we strive to get a little bit better every day. Hopefully you do too.
Who You Are:
You are either currently enrolled in an undergraduate college program OR a somewhat recent graduate looking for part-time work and you understand the critical need for a simplified and streamlined scholarship application and award process.
You want to jump start your career through sales, business development, and marketing.
You are enthusiastic about exploring the world of sales and marketing: You are not expected to come here and have all the answers – we will train you on the various operations we need you to undertake – and we’d love if you bring a positive energy and a strong interest to this world of entry level sales ops!
You are flexible: Mentally, that is (though other kinds of flexibility are appreciated as well – maybe you could help us get into yoga more). This role will be helping us grow into new markets, so things could change fast, and we’ll need you to be open and ready to roll with new objectives on a dime!
You have an abundance of natural curiosity: Perhaps you were one of those kids that asked “why?” over and over again until your parents went crazy. Perhaps you asked questions that were a bit more well-formed. Either way, you are an intellectually curious life-long learner who cherishes the process of figuring things out – particularly with an interest in learning new technologies as they relate to sales and marketing success.
You like to work with data and automation: Researching companies, cleaning data and tinkering with workflow automation sounds interesting to you. You like to get into a flow with your work and can sometimes lose track of time when you're deeply focused on the understanding the how and why things work.
