Admissions Operations Specialist


What is Pathrise?

Pathrise (YC W18) 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 pay us back when they’re hired.

Built around aligned incentives, we help build equity in the job search process by providing 1-on-1 mentorship, training, and a platform to uplift job seekers and ultimately, help them fulfill their hopes, ambitions, and livelihoods. We’ve already helped more than a thousand fellows land meaningful jobs, and helped them earn over $100M in salary.

Last year, we raised our Series A and there is even more exciting growth on the horizon. In 2022, we have already expanded from 6 to 14 industries, launched a tiered pricing system with differentiated product offerings, and much more.

Our Mission

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!

The Role

We’re taking a new approach to hiring talent to support admissions-ops projects at Pathrise! By applying to this job, you’ll become a part of our resume pool of candidates which we will draw from whenever flexible contract roles open up. Projects will range from short term (a few weeks) to longer term (several months), and will give you the chance to learn new skills, platforms, and more!

We are actively hiring for the following long term project:

Persona Tagging Strategy – Identifying, grouping and tagging leads with persona types to identify areas of impact. This will allow us to better understand fellow needs, streamline workflows and improve the experience for our clients. Taggers will review about 50 resumes daily and apply persona tags early in our sales funnel.

The entry level role is great for anyone with an ops or admissions background. Recent anthropology, sociology and political science grads are encouraged to apply!
