Hi Potential Co-Worker,
My name is Madison. I'm the Founder and COO at GrantMe.
We are building the leading education planning platform for a future full of options. GrantMe is securing students' futures and when students and families feel they have options, the future looks brighter.
Education and careers are changing and the marketplace has been crying out for an innovative partner to help navigate the change. Our education platform is a student’s expert guide that removes uncertainty and creates options.
We are one of Canada’s fastest-growing startups and we have assembled a team of high-performers who are striving to be world-class in everything we do. We are intentional about creating a brand and culture that is consistent all the way through from company leadership to our students. So GrantMe is a place where people come to do great work, be surrounded by others who are developing themselves and want to push themselves. If you want to accelerate your career by 5 years, then GrantMe is the place to do it.
We work with a sense of urgency and we like to do great work fast. Being student-centred is the soul of everything we do, we act with integrity because we do what we say and by when, and we strive for perfection in our work through constant kaizen (continuous improvement). If you’re the type of person who enjoys getting so passionate about our customers that you dream about them, then GrantMe is for you.
As the Account Executive, you will be interviewing students and families to discuss their educational journey and show them that their future is indeed full of options.
