POSSIP SUMMARY
Possip is strengthening schools great through parents. We use technology to created simplified feedback and communication systems for parents & schools. We envision a day where every school has a way to easily hear and learn from parents – and where every parent can easily communicate with their child’s school.

We believe race, language, education level, and income should not be a barrier to communication between parents and schools.

We are tech-enabled and people-centered.  We use elegant technological solutions to simplify school & parent engagement and relationships.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR: DIRECTOR, SALES & NEW PARTNER DEVELOPMENT

You grind and hustle to meet ambitious goals.  You love people, you love achievement, and you do what it takes to succeed.  You will be Possip’s newest member of our sales and partnership development team.

You learn quickly, are curious, and love to chase and attain big, seemingly unrealistic goals.  You are comfortable in ambiguity — but work to create structure and sense out of it. You are inspired to persevere and overcome rejection – for the right cause or idea.  

You are data-driven in your planning and in your drive to continuously improve.  You bring strong strategy, planning, organizing, and relationship skills together

Most importantly you believe each person, inclusive of every socioeconomic status, racial or ethnic identity, and educational experience, has value and deserves to have their voice shared in a productive way.  You believe in the power and potential of schools – and see yourself as a supporter of the leaders and educators who work within them. Because of this belief you will drive the work of Possip forward.

You will join a small start-up team working to grow a service and platform that will simplify and enable parent to school feedback loops across a diversity of parents and schools. You must care about integrating parent perspective into schools, and about helping schools learn and grow.  You should be able to successfully navigate diverse communities, constituencies and contexts.
