Administrative Assistant - Revenue Operations

Job description

ABOUT US

Albert (www.albert.io) is an instructional platform that empowers teachers to unlock the potential in all learners. We are a mission-driven and diverse team of passionate, thoughtful, and creative individuals creating the learning platform of the future. Albert is growing quickly and looking for mission-driven team members who want to make a massive impact on improving education across the world.


THE ROLE

In the role of Administrative Assistant - Revenue Operations, you will be the driving force behind smoothly running customer success and sales teams. Your work will enable our customer-facing teams to maximize their impact by supporting them in recordkeeping, client communications, compliance, vendor approvals, contracts, and customer support. 


Your responsibilities will include:
Vendor approvals. Because Albert sells to schools and school districts, we often need to go through vendor approval processes to be able to make a sale. These processes involve back and forth paperwork, contract negotiation, and often, scheduling conversations with district administrators to clear Albert for a sale and use by their students. A well-functioning vendor approval team is critical to the success of our sales team.

Compliance. You will be responsible for collecting tax exemption certificates from our school customers and managing our sales tax compliance execution. This is critical to ensure Albert has up-to-date certificates and remits sales tax appropriately. 

● Recordkeeping. It is critical for our sales and customer success teams to have accurate records on things like budget cycles (ie, when schools set their budgets for the year) to plan their account management activities. You will improve our systems for data maintenance while updating records on our thousands of school clients. 

Customer support. You will help our customer success team deliver delightful customer experiences. You will help customers problem-solve, find solutions, and answer their questions so we can maximize customer loyalty and retention. 

Revenue forecasting. In order to enable the company to make informed financial decisions, you will work with our school customers to track their payment cycles and timelines so we have accurate insight into future cash flows. 

Data assurance. Ensure internal tools (such as our CRM) have consistent, accurate, and complete data; work with sales team members to ensure adherence to process and audit historical data.


WHY US?

Albert is so much more than just a job. You will do great work here supported by incredibly talented, passionate, and kind colleagues and actually look forward to waking up every day to help us bring better learning experiences to students worldwide. We carefully maintain our culture of openness, respectful debate, calculated risk-taking, and first-principles thinking. You'll also form lifelong friendships, collaborate with incredible managers, have a ton of fun, and pick up skills and experience that will last you a lifetime.
