Position overview:

Nearpod is currently experiencing rapid growth in the market and within our own portfolio of offerings. Part of that growth includes a new math program launch, and we need math education experts to help get the word out and to drive sales. In this role, you will have three key job responsibilities:

  1. Drive revenue growth through pre-sales product presentations and ongoing customer engagement with large schools and districts, and with passionate educators across the United States

  2. Pull from a deep understanding of math instruction across the K-12 spectrum to provide internal and external training on our math solution, which will also require a deep understanding of the Nearpod platform. 

  3. Provide strategic guidance to the sales, marketing, and development arms of the business based on interaction with customers, current knowledge of relevant state and federal legislation, and personal knowledge of best-practice math instruction in a digital world.


Make no mistake, while we are looking for passionate educators, this is at its heart, a sales role. Through your direct interaction with customers—both new and existing—and with our Sales, Customer Success, and Support teams, this role is expected to have a direct impact on our brand awareness and growth revenue. We are a hard working team, but a passionate one, and we are looking forward to adding to our growing Nearpod family.
