Business Development Manager

Mindojo is developing a self-evolving, adaptive AI platform for personalized education. Our products are already being successfully used to deliver market-leading courses by some of the world’s top media brands such as Bloomberg LP and The Economist. We’re building a team of experts passionate about making a world-changing impact through our upcoming line of products aimed to disrupt higher-education.

In the Business Development Manager role you will drive forward our cutting-edge adaptive learning technology, expand Mindojo's network of global partnerships and grow a customer base to include larger, more influential companies.
The ideal candidate will be able to map the business market (corporations, educational institutions, government agencies) and plan and execute different strategies to engage new business leads. 
We have a brilliant team of content experts who create unique non-linear learning content, and we’re on the way to disrupting the global education market. On our platform, students are constantly engaged in personalized dialogue with our AI private tutor, far surpassing the efficacy of existing resources (textbooks, video or classroom lectures, and various e-learning products).

We offer a full-time contract for a remote Business Development Manager. You can work from wherever you wish and the work schedule is very flexible.
Our culture

We believe in minimum bureaucracy and maximum creative freedom. Our team members enjoy plenty of autonomy and are measured mostly by their actual deliverables. We work hard (who’s not familiar with healthy deadlines?) but are happy knowing that our efforts will help improve the lives of many and help the global economy at large. We love people who can approach problems from different angles and who are comfortable asking tough questions and proposing innovative solutions. We aren’t afraid to switch to new technologies as soon as it makes sense, and as a consequence, much of our stack is always at the cutting edge. We’re continuously looking for ways to improve our processes, and everyone’s suggestions are heard and considered on their merit, not based on seniority.
