At Top Hat, we take the development of our employees very seriously. What you can expect when you join is to be enrolled in Revenue University, our very own four-week training program that will teach you everything you need to know about what makes our platform and our products great. This program will get you ready to go out there and connect with professors that would benefit from our platform and our products.

From there, as you begin to get comfortable in your role, you can expect to have weekly personal development meetings with your manager, where you can map out your career trajectory moving forward, develop an individualized learning & development plan, receive additional training, and get the insight of some incredibly successful salespeople (most of whom developed their skills and techniques in-house at Top Hat, just like you!).

Overall, our mission is to change the face of education, and to do it with a staff of incredibly focused and ambitious people, ready to take on any challenge headfirst and grow rapidly in their roles. You will help us get there by being the face of the organization, connecting with professors to understand their needs, and ultimately helping them make the classroom experience more fun and effective. Given the size of our organization, and the pace at which we keep growing, that means that the opportunities to grow with us here are limitless.
