About HiMama and Our Mission:
HiMama is improving learning outcomes for children aged zero to five. We are a social purpose business and certified B Corporation that connects families with the early childhood professionals who serve them. Our goal is to empower early childhood educators with affordable tools that enable them to improve developmental outcomes for the children they work with, while educating parents about the importance of their work. If you are excited about being part of a high-growth tech company focused on making a difference in a highly impactful industry, HiMama is the place for you!
We're looking for passionate, ambitious and confident Account Executives who want to challenge themselves in a fast-paced, high-growth work environment. Ideal candidates enjoy connecting with people and thrive in a high-performance team with high expectations. They are keen to take on a challenge and looking to take their career to the next level. Finally, they're looking to make an impact on the world beyond dollars and cents. Working with a social enterprise you will personally have the opportunity to improve outcomes for hundreds and thousands of children worldwide.
As an Account Executive on our team, you will be empowering Early Childhood Educators (ECE's) to build stronger relationships with parents and engage them in children's learning and development using our products.
