Most importantly, if you succeed, you’ll ensure that thousands of low-income students who need our free services are able to find them online.

This might be the right job for you if…

  • You’re super excited by the idea of working at an early stage edtech nonprofit (one of only two edtech nonprofits to have ever been backed by Y Combinator!)
  • You like to build things from the ground up, including content, operational systems, analytics, ad campaigns, and more as part of a broader strategy
  • You’re not intimidated by having to find all the answers yourself
  • You want to have ownership of anything and everything related to our user acquisition strategy and brand
  • You’re willing and capable of being a one-person marketing team—including writing email campaigns, social media posts, and blog posts yourself—until we’re able to grow the team

What you’ll do at UPchieve:

  • Drive improvements at all steps of UPchieve’s user acquisition and retention funnel
  • Run daily or weekly experiments to test changes and try out new marketing strategies
  • Collaborate with the tech team to measure and analyze the success of your experiments
  • Write content/copy for our website, email campaigns, social media, blog, etc.
  • (Over 1-2 years) Hire for and lead a small marketing team

We’re looking for someone who…

  • Has 4+ years of broad marketing experience (ideally with exposure to SEO, content marketing, community marketing, and more)
  • Feels comfortable measuring the success of their experiments via analytics
  • Has a bias towards action and is highly resourceful
  • Is a strong writer capable of appealing to our high school student population
  • (Bonus) Has been the first marketing hire at a startup before

Additional application materials:

  • Anything you think we should see (e.g., your personal website, blog posts you’ve writen, social media campaigns you ran, etc.)


To apply, please email the following to recruitment@upchieve.org (and make sure to tell us what role you’re applying for!):

  • Some form of employment history (e.g., resume, LinkedIn profile, AngelList profile, etc.)

  • One paragraph (max 6 sentences) in the body of your email on what most excited you about this job. Why are you applying?

  • Any role-specific application materials requested above
