Want to play a major role in the growth of an exciting international education start-up?
Language International is looking for a highly motivated and outgoing perfectionist to help us create and strengthen partnerships with language schools all over the world.
WHO WE ARE
We are a team of language and technology enthusiasts working together to build the best language course search site on the internet. Today, we serve over 50,000 students a year and manage Language International sites in thirty different languages.
We do (humbly) think that Language International is a cool place to work. Our team is a diverse mixture in everything from cultural backgrounds and languages spoken to taste in music and clothes. But, there is one thing that binds us all: a drive to excel at what we do. We'll do whatever it takes to deliver the best language course search experience, even if it means staying up to fix a website bug or responding to customers on weekends. We work in an intense, fast-paced environment, relying on every member of the team to carry their share.
Don't worry, we don't take ourselves too seriously. Whether it's showing off our culinary skills during team cooking events, showcasing our hidden genius in impromptu talent shows over catered lunch, or rehearsing the train dance during our summer party cruise or weekend party in Vermont, we love to have a good time together!
We have developed a passion for our team, product, and customers that is paralleled by none. If you're excited about helping people learn new languages, want your coworkers to feel like family, and love to be challenged by working alongside the very best, then Language International is the place for you.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
As a Global Partnership Manager, you'll be responsible for building and managing teams of assistants and interns working on projects related to business development and content management. You will play a crucial role in the growth of our company.
The business development team is tasked with creating and strengthening partnerships with language schools in strategic locations across the globe. You'll design and implement a strategy to enlist schools that are not yet listed on our website, oversee complex contract negotiations, and drive quality and efficiency by identifying areas for improvement on an ongoing basis.
The content management team handles communication with current partners, helps schools publish their profiles on our website, updates incorrect or missing school and course content, troubleshoots errors, translates website content, and more. You'll supervise this team, improve its efficiency and productivity, and oversee various projects aimed at perfecting the content on our website.
If you are excited about this opportunity (and we hope you are), please take a moment to get to know us by visiting www.languageinternational.com. Then email us a resume and a thoughtful cover letter (canned responses will be trashed right away).
