Hiring: Seeking Exceptional People

Seeking Exceptional People

posted: July 28, 2016

Are you passionate about growing a company while helping our customers build theirs? Technically savvy? Exceptional at what you do? 

Does the idea of joining a rapidly growing startup excite the heck out of you? If yes, read on!

Thinkific is a Vancouver-based tech company with a team of 16, and growing fast. We’re making it easy to teach and build businesses online.

Our all-in-one platform helps our customers create, market, and sell their own online courses. We currently power thousands of online courses for clients ranging from Hootsuite and other large companies, to thousands of independent experts, authors, speakers, coaches, and entrepreneurs around the globe.

A big part of our success is the experience our product offers  – and that’s where you come in.

We’re always hiring for the right candidates.

Our team will double over the coming months, and that means that we have roles for the right people. The best technical marketer on the block? Phenomenal content writer? A whiz with data and analytics? Skilled software engineer? The best customer support person we’ve never met? Multi-talented and eager to contribute to a growing co.?

Whatever your talent – if you think you’d be an amazing fit, we want to hear from you.

Here are some hints that you might be the kind of person we’re looking for (you probably meet a few of these!):

  • You’ve already created your own online course (bonus points if you’ve used Thinkific!) Relating to and understanding our clientele is key in every role. If you’ve created your own online course, you already know exactly what our customers are doing.
  • You’re a real team player. No egos, everyone does their part, we’re all growing this company together. If you’re looking for a role to go it your own – or if you just want to sit back and just do your own thing – we’re probably a pass.
  • You’ve got sales experience. Every time we get the attention of a customer or prospective customer, it is an opportunity to get them even more excited about our product, and how they can make the most of it.
  • You are passionate about business growth (and may even be an online entrepreneur yourself). This is an opportunity to help thousands of entrepreneurs all over the planet build online businesses, earn passive revenue, and live their dreams. It doesn’t get more rewarding than this!
  • You’re highly technical. We’re a software company, and you’ll need to be really tech savvy to keep up in any role.
  • You’re a roll-up-the-sleeves-and-do-whatever-is-needed-proactively type of person. There’s no time for “That’s not my job”. If it needs to be done, you don’t just jump in when asked – you proactively do what needs to be done.
  • You’re great at your thing. We are seeking exceptional people – top of the class, best of the best. What are you great at? If you could describe your dream job, what would it be? If that’s not a need yet, what are you willing to work on in the meantime?

Are you the perfect fit? Impress us, then grow with us!

Think we sound like a good fit?

Here’s what we need from you. Your choice!

  • Create a 2-minute video explaining and showing us why you’re the right person to join our team (don’t worry about quality – your cell phone is fine!). Put your video on Dropbox, Drive, or a video service of your choice – just be sure it can be accessed publicly via the link.
  • OR create a course in our platform with one lesson (your choice of format!) telling us why you’re the right candidate to support our customers. Demonstrate your ability to dive in and learn new tools. Name your course “Hire (Your name)” and let us know when it’s ready to view!

Then, send the link along with the normal “hey-hire-me” stuff to Miranda, here. 

We have growth roles for the right candidates. We can’t wait to meet you!
