Senior Technical Customer Champion
Exceptional teammates. Meaningful work. Amazing growth opportunities. We’re revolutionizing the way people learn and earn online. Growth is built upon solid foundations, and at Thinkific, we know our success can be attributed to one thing: our exceptional people.
Motivated, happy, high-performing people first, above all else.
This is a company promise we make to our team and strive to keep it at the top of our list every day. It sounds simple, and in fact we don’t often see what we do internally as extraordinary. The reason we invest in our team is because we know that failure awaits us if we don’t. So many of our efforts—from recruiting, to onboarding, to recognition and engagement—have centered around helping our team members find joy in their work. We know that if we care about them, they’ll care about the company, and our customers.
