Who we are
Our mission is to make the world a better place by unleashing the potential of billions of students worldwide. We believe that the current education system is broken because it rarely takes advantage of our personal motivations, leverage what science tells us about how our brains learn best, or use technology and big data to optimize and validate it's methods.
We're solving the 7 trillion dollar problem of one-size-fits-all education by creating a next-generation learning platform that makes learning fun and fiercely effective -- and that gets better the more we use it. The first application of our platform serves pre-meds and medical students. We currently serve 1 out of every 8 medical students across the country and are on pace to make it 1 out of 4 by the end of 2014.
Who we're looking for
We're looking for a gregarious, confident, self-disciplined and organized entrepreneurial leader who is passionate about our mission and who wants to do whatever it takes to evangelize Firecracker and support our customers. We want someone who would have an absurd amount of fun driving adoption of Firecracker through online and offline community building and education, and who is equally stoked about supporting customers once they have decided to give the Firecracker experience a try (including mentoring customer success specialists). We're also looking for someone who views every customer interaction as an opportunity for us to understand what we could be doing better; the ideal candidate will be honored by the opportunity to represent our customers collective voice and work alongside engineers, product and growth teams to bake this insight into experimental features and growth initiatives.
Specifically, we want someone who is/has:
