High Velocity Sales Development

San Francisco, CA, United States - Internship

As an education startup ready to explode, CredEd is looking for our next outbound sales development rep to join in our growth. We are actively looking to bring on the top 1% of all humans to join this team.

For this crucial role in CredEd’s growth we have a 3 month (11 week) internship for accepted candidates. Because of the importance of this role, we are extremely selective, and only accept the best – those dedicated to the mission, willing to expand their comfort zone and grow with the company.

  • About the Internship

    The internship is designed as an 11 week – all-out – learning, growth, and results driven experience. At the end of the internship candidates will have a skill set that is invaluable to any organization they would ever desire to join. However, for those candidates that get through the internship, we of course want to keep you on the team!

    We are accepting 5 interns, yet expect 2 to last. Not because we aren’t a ton of fun – we are – but the amount of learning can be overwhelming, and we set the bar high. When CredEd was started we decided we were only going to work with A+ players, we believe the CredEd mission is too important to settle for anything less.

  • A+ Players

    And here is the thing: A+ players are hard to find AND they can easily be making more money somewhere else because they are hard workers because they dedicate themselves to the company, the mission, and achieving results all while continuously learning, improving, and growing.

    • A+ players want the best for the company and expect the best from themselves.
    • A+ players want to be able to learn, advance, and grow with their company.
    • A+ players take ownership in their work and ownership of being a part of the company.
    • A+ players are team players while holding themselves responsible for their part while picking up other players on the team when they need a hand.
    • A+ players know they are joining a team on a mission. They want to improve as an individual so that they can improve the team as a whole.

    These are the people CredEd wants on our team.
