Overview

Are you looking to flex your teaching/instructional design muscles at one of Toronto’s fastest growing startups? Can you make explaining a new technology solution sound like a dream come true? You will work with new customers (which happen to be professors) to help adopt technology that will transform their lectures into a modern classroom!

We’re Top Hat, a student engagement platform that makes learning more fun and effective for professors and students. We’re in over 500 universities and are adding new professors and students every day. 

We’re growing like crazy, and that’s where you come in! We’re looking for people to become our newest onboarding specialists! You will help us on-board new professors to our platform during peak season. You will be working with professors to walk them through an onboarding journey from signing their contract until the first day of class and beyond – you will be the prof of profs! You will lead the professor through this journey and ensure that they are well equipped to adopt Top Hat in their class.

  • You will manage each new professor’s customized onboarding journey and ensure they are totally ready to adopt the platform for their upcoming class
  • You ensure customers are familiar (some might say experts) with using the platform in their classroom
  • You will share best practices on how to format lectures and effectively teach using the Top Hat platform
  • You ensure that each professor is proactively prepared for the beginning of the semester to ensure full readiness of both the students and professor
  • You will manage your full onboarding pipeline of new professors from signing the contract, to training, to full utilization, to the first day of class

About You: 

  • You are very organized and comfortable managing high volume of training sessions and tasks
  • You are eloquent in your communication skills (especially over the phone, you have a way in establishing relationships)
  • You are familiar with technology and competent with computers
  • Ideally you’re comfortable with Mac AND Windows
  • Having a teaching or training background is highly preferred
