Who are we looking for: We are looking for the sixth full-time member of our corporate family.
We like spending time with each other, even outside of work! We need someone who can bring a positive attitude to the workplace and contribute by increasing the overall energy level at the company.
We need someone who has ambition and very lofty goals for themselves and the company they work for. A desirable candidate can’t accept the status quo, and constantly strives to achieve as much as possible as fast as possible.
“Work hard/ play hard”: We need someone who is able to handle extremely heavy workloads. When our team has a deadline to hit, we put in the extra hours necessary to get this done. At the same time, we value work-life balance and want to make sure that your experience while at Abroad101 is healthy, fun, and exciting.
Self-awareness is key, and we try to be self-analytical and self-critical for the sake of improving team dynamics.
We need someone who is a great self-motivator. We want someone who is comfortable with a lot of direction and instruction, but who can thrive without a lot of direction.
We’re looking for someone passionate about our mission and the context of our
business. By fostering the most meaningful study abroad experiences for students, we’re turning them into global citizens who are more open-minded and interested in a brighter future for the world.

We are looking for the type of person who would like to take 25-50% of the below cash salaries in options or some form of equity. That said, we understand that people have cash needs, for example to pay back student loans. If you need the full cash salary, you’ll have to prove to us some other way that you’ll be extremely dedicated to the company and its interests.
For candidates with minimal experience but who convince us that they can perform well for us, starting salary will be as high as $60,000. For candidates with 2+ years of PHP/MySQL/HTML/CSS/Jquery/Linux/SysAdmin/etc experience, starting salary will be as high as $80,000.
