Merit America is hiring a Remote Director of Growth

The American economy is broken. Today 53 million working adults–nearly half of the U.S. workforce–do not earn a living wage. And these workers have few options to advance: college is too long and expensive, full-time bootcamp programs don’t offer the flexibility they need, and online courses don’t have the structure or support to translate learning into a new job. This catch-22 perpetuates a cycle of poverty–talented workers stuck in low-wage roles, with no way to advance their ambition for themselves and their families. 

Merit America creates a pathway to family-sustaining careers for Americans without 4-year degrees.

Our combination of online learning and best-in-class coaching prepares learners for entry level jobs in IT support, java development, and data analytics that usually offer twice what they were earning before the program. Merit works with companies to identify jobs that will be a great fit for our learners, and provides students with 12 weeks of job placement coaching and support to ensure they get the roles they will excel in.

At Merit America, we are on a mission to generate $1b of wage gains by 2024, connecting talented learners to in-demand career paths at scale. To date, Merit America has served over 2000 students, on a path to reach 100,000 students per year.
