What does Packback do?
Packback exists to awaken and fuel the fearless, relentless curiosity in every student.
We are a social learning platform powered by a proprietary A.I. that college professors use to help their students fall in love with the subject matter, drive personalized learning, and most importantly, quantify and improve critical thinking skills.
How will you add value to the team?
You will be an inside sales development representative (titled as a University Outreach Specialist) that solely focuses on outbound prospecting.
