You’ll be doing a crash course in the market by talking to our team and customers – getting in front our students and universities, setting up interviews. You’ll have the travel and expenses covered so you can meet and really get to know our partners. What makes them tick, how can we serve them better, and sharing the top 10 findings with our product, operations, and recruitment teams and using these findings and relationships for our growth plan.

You will be tasked with growing our relationships with recruitment companies around the world by reaching out to them, introducing our platform, and signing them up. We have developed an automated system for this. You will be managing this system and lead the onboarding with global partners.
The most important skill for this role is to be able to understand people, communicate well, develop relationships and drive business sales.
We need someone with a native level of Chinese and English. international mindset is a must. We expect you’ll have a strong track record of sales and BD growth and have strong relationship skills.
As we are a startup it is important you can think in a “Full Stack” way, and are able to think about the work from multiple angles and can have a wide range of skills (or be looking to learn related skills) such as digital marketing, international recruitment etc.,. It also helps to drive improvements in other areas of our business.
Being tech savvy, marketing experience, entrepreneurial interest or experience is an advantage. We highly value the ability to learn, being open minded, caring about others, and service, and a get stuff done attitude.
It is important that you have high standards, good attention to detail and can help to push each other and the team to improve and be better.
We prefer someone who is based in Beijing but due to the current travel restrictions other locations may be considered.
We are a multinational team based in Beijing but also remotely. In our team we have some of the most talented people in the industry who are dedicated, ambitious, have high standards, and are great fun to work with and learn from. Together we are continually pushing and helping each other to grow.
Our management system is using OKR’s where we all have our own monthly targets (like those 3 above) that align together and we help support each other to reach those targets.
The salary is competitive, with full social insurance. You’ll be surrounded by the best people in the industry – a smart and fun team to work with and learn from. We have a results oriented culture with flexible schedule with national and international travel opportunities.
