Marketing Coordinator at ThinkCERCA 256 views

What We’re About

Are you ready for a mission? The next generation of leaders needs your help.

At ThinkCERCA, we believe critical thinking is the catalyst for change. We build software to teach critical thinking skills by helping students become better writers. Bill Gates called our tools “game-changing” and we’ve seen great results.

But there’s still more we can do.

To help us grow, we’re looking for an empathetic Marketing Coordinator to increase our brand awareness among educators across the country. You must be passionate about teamwork, an extremely organized multitasker, and love what we stand for.

ThinkCERCA is an impact-driven company (read our guiding values) committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace (more about that here). We’re a remote-friendly company, with teammates around the globe. If you’d like to work from our headquarters in downtown Chicago, that’s great! If you’re based elsewhere, that’s cool too!

We hope you’ll join us.
