JOB DESCRIPTION
AdmitHub is seeking a talented engineer with backend experience to join our engineering team as it rolls out our AI chatbots and tools to colleges and universities across the country.

ABOUT ADMITHUB
We bring the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning to higher education through a chatbot-driven text-messaging platform that guides students to and through college. Our bots help students find the answers they need, wherever they are, whenever they need it--and offer colleges a way to give one-on-one support to vast numbers of students.
Having just closed a Series A, we’re looking for a full-time VP of Partner Success to help manage a growing pipeline of new college partners, and scale a complex process of training higher education professionals to make the most of our breakthrough technology.
AdmitHub is both mission and margin driven. We’re committed to helping colleges operate more effectively and supporting students on the path to and through college. We also believe in rigorous independent research of our products, especially with respect to at-risk students. (See a recent study on our work with Georgia State here: Georgia State Case Study.)

* Orchestrate robust distributed systems to process large streams of data
* Contribute to our cross-functional data team to help support an ecosystem serving hundreds of thousands of students.

CRITICAL SKILLS
