Program Manager

Program Manager

Climb Hire’s mission is to create economic opportunity and mobility for overlooked and hidden talent. We prepare working adults age 24-33 for in-demand Salesforce Administrator roles at growing companies committed to building an inclusive workforce. Our program model is inspired by LinkedIn’s data that finds job seekers are 9x more likely to secure a job through a referral. As such, we emphasize building an authentic and deep community of peers and professional colleagues so that Climbers have a life-long network of support and ever-growing social capital. Over the course of the program, Climbers build meaningful relationships with one another and with volunteers through class assignments, a capstone project, and project-based exercises that emphasize technical and professional skills. This deep focus on relationships is critical given that many Climbers do not come to the program with robust professional networks, a hurdle to career advancement and upward mobility.PROGRAM MANAGER OVERVIEW Climb Hire is seeking a dynamic, gregarious, affable, rigorously accountable, and lovable Program Manager (PM) to support our curriculum, near peer learning community, and job placement strategy and implementation process.
