Practice is experiencing rapid growth, and we’re looking for an ambitious, experienced and independently minded Account Executive, based in Philadelphia that loves learning and software sales. We’ve built one of the more innovative, effective learning solutions for teaching, learning and assessing real-world skills as well as for driving culture change. Our clients include major brands in both the higher education and corporate sectors including Comcast, Citibank, Walmart, Penn Medicine, Harvard University, Drexel University, and UCSF Medical School. As an Account Executive at Practice, you will play a critical role in driving our growth and continued success.
The role of an Account Executive is a demanding position where only highly motivated, self-driven candidates will excel. Your main responsibilities will include:
Practice is an applied video microlearning solution that fosters strong learning cultures by creating a scalable means for teams to frequently practice core competencies and receive meaningful, timely feedback through the power of peer-to-peer assessment and coaching. Practice clients include Comcast, Dell, Walmart, Harvard Medical School, and the University of Pennsylvania. More information is available at www.practice.xyz.
Practice’s origins come in part from cofounder Emily Foote’s experience as a teacher in disadvantaged school districts. After enrolling in law school and taking a class, taught by cofounder, Karl Okamoto, that promoted real-life practice (students would act out negotiation scenarios in front of classmates and law professionals) she saw an opportunity to bring this style of practice-driven learning to teachers, who could ultimately impact students in their districts.
Enter Practice, an edtech company that brings elearning software to workers, students, and all types of learners to promote competence that enriches the work of companies, schools and hospitals, among many other clients. Practice’s interactive video technology is heavy on peer assessment and continual feedback. The team takes this pedagogy to heart, infusing it into its company culture to promote both employee engagement and continual improvement to the product.
Today, Practice’s beginnings as a community impact initiative carry through to the lives and involvements of its employees. Every member of the team stays involved in the local community, whether as charitable board members, volunteer tutors, or by doing their part to develop emerging tech talents.
Practice is spread evenly across two offices, one in Philadelphia and one in San Francisco, and each are housed in open coworking spaces that provide easy access to co-worker collaboration as well as mingling with the other teams that work in the space.
Because so much of Practice’s work is collaborative across departments, applicants go through an acute screening process to ensure not only the right skill-set, but the right cultural fit, too. This means introducing the video platform as early on as the application process and continuing to develop and learn from it through monthly employee challenges.
Prided on transparency and a candid culture, partnership is fostered within the team through ongoing feedback, team bonding activities ranging from spontaneous happy hours to axe throwing, and a steady supply of snacks.
