We've been featured in major media like Forbes, TechCrunch, the Wall Street Journal, and today we offer over 25,000 classes.

How to Know if CourseHorse is a Good Fit

- You have an interest and appreciation for education and active lifestyles, and a desire to help people connect with both
- You appreciate autonomy – we arm you with the knowledge, the skillset and support system, but you synthesize everything yourself to make it work
- You’re focused on building a diverse set of skills that will help you throughout the rest of your career; as an education company, team member development is priority #1
- You like fun, fast paced, (sometimes fabulously witty) environments, and want to work in downtown NYC
- You want to be friends with the people you work with

What You’ll Be Doing

- Connecting with customers via chat, phone, and email to help them navigate NYC's local learning world
- Delivering on CourseHorse's core promise: to be an incredibly supportive destination for learning
- Proactively solve problems: there's no manual, and you must be capable and responsible to write it for us
- Structuring our customer service for scalability; you'll be setting the tone for how we delight our customers from here on out
- Customer research: customer service is the best way to test new initiatives and learn more about our customers
- Social media: eventually this role will become tightly bound with all of our social media initiatives
- Learning a ton about every aspect of building a start-up
