Please apply online here:

CourseHorse is seeking a hungry, talented sales professional to help us partner with thousands of educators across the country. You'll be the second sales person to join our team, and we'll rely on you to quickly master our existing sales pitch & process, pave the way to improve it, and help hire the next generation of sales associates.

About Us:
Based in downtown NYC, CourseHorse is the first marketplace that helps people discover & enroll in trusted local classes, ranging from casual programs like cooking & art, to professional courses like finance and programming. We believe that learning is the single greatest way to positively impact individuals & our society, which makes our goal simple: to make lifelong learning easier.

We're one of Forbes' Top 100 Promising Companies in America, we work with almost 1,000 class providers offering 40,000 classes, and we've grown revenue 700% in the last year. We've just raised an additional round of capital in order to attach rocket-boosters to this Horse, and we're seeking passionate, talented team members to get in on the ground floor & help steer us to the stars.

How to know if CourseHorse is a good fit:
• You’re looking for more than just a job – you have a desire to help build something real
• You have an interest and appreciation for education and active lifestyles, and a desire to help people connect with both
• You appreciate autonomy – we arm you with the knowledge, the skillset and support system, but you synthesize everything yourself to make it work
• You’re focused on building a diverse set of skills (or a very particular set of skills) that will help you throughout the rest of your career – as an education company, team member development is priority #1
• You like fun, fast paced, (sometimes fabulously witty) environments, and want to work in downtown NYC
• You want to be friends with the people you work with
