Overview
OpenWater, rated one of Inc 5000’s fastest growing startups, is a simple yet powerful software platform that lets organizations collect and review applications.

Your Role
Our Entry Level Voyagers are curious, driven, and empathetic, going out of their way to help each other and our customers.  They do not rest until a problem is solved. They are never satisfied with “good enough” – they are always looking to improve or learn more. They are independent, but will go out of their way to help a teammate. After all, work is a team sport.

Successful candidates have come from business and communication majors – but also history, philosophy, and journalism. Basically, we care less about your degree, and much more about your story. Tell us why you want to work with customers and dive into technology.. Have an amazing cat blog or a knack for building robots? We want to hear about that, too.

 

Responsibilities and Duties
During your first 6 months you will be working in our marketing and research department.  You’ll help us find customers that we can work with, learn good email etiquette, and improve your phone skills.

You will then transition into our implementation department where you will be working in close coordination with product experts as you learn the ins-and outs of our platform.  You will learn first hand the challenges faced by our customers and will become the go-to person for a handful of clients.

After you succeed there and you will chart your next path.  Alumni of the OpenWater Voyager program can be found in all departments, Sales, Marketing, Customer Success, and Product Development.
