Role Description

What is Pathrise?{: style=font-size: 24px}

Pathrise (YC W18) is a startup that connects job seekers across North America to world class industry mentorship and career coaching to help them land a new career. The program is free upfront and our customers only pay us back when they’re hired. 

Last year, we raised our Series A, grew the team to over 50 fully remote employees and 100+ industry mentors, enrolled 2000 job seekers into the program, and have generated $100mm+ in livelihood for our customers. There is lots of exciting growth on the horizon. This year, we’re looking to more than 3x our enrollment. In 2022, we have already expanded from 6 to 14 industries, are launching a tiered pricing system with differentiated product offerings, and have 30+ partnerships with universities, companies, and recruiting agencies. 

Our Mission{: style=font-size: 18px}

Our mission is to help people everywhere build their careers by being the world’s best career agency. 

We believe the job search system is broken and can be fixed with a business model that acts on behalf of the job seeker, instead of on behalf of employers, recruiters, or schools. If this sounds interesting to you, we look forward to hearing from you!
