You love writing and have the ability to write both creative, unique copy and straightforward, informational copy.

You recognize excellence in written communication and marketing, and you're relentless until you achieve it.

You're never complacent.

You're always thinking, "How can I improve for next time? How do I get even better results?" and you use data to help you get the best results.

You value candor, honesty, and directness. The ability to give and receive honest, constructive feedback is crucial for this job.

You have a lot of ideas for creative marketing, but you also love efficiency and streamlining, and share our value "work smarter, not harder."

You enjoy taking on a lot of responsibility and excel at juggling many projects simultaneously. Self-management and organization are also critical.

You thrive on collaboration, and enjoy working with other talented team members on creative projects.

You have an interest in the world of education, and are excited to be part of a company that constantly strives to improve students' education.

You want to be part of a growing company that recognizes your talent, is hungry for your ideas, celebrates your success, and will help you grow.

You're not too disappointed about the idea of doing your job from home in your PJs either.
