Degree Marketing Associate

Coursera was launched in 2012 by two Stanford Computer Science professors, Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller, with a mission to provide universal access to world-class learning. It is now one of the largest online learning platforms in the world, with 87 million registered learners as of June 30, 2021. Coursera partners with over 200 leading university and industry partners to offer a broad catalog of content and credentials, including Guided Projects, courses, Specializations, certificates, and bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Institutions around the world use Coursera to upskill and reskill their employees, citizens, and students in many high-demand fields, including data science, technology, and business. Coursera became a B Corp in February 2021.

The Marketing & Communications team is responsible for connecting the world to lifelong transformative learning. They also work to shape public conversations on the future of education and work. The team is segmented into four areas of focus: Consumer Marketing, Enterprise Marketing, Brand & Creative, and Communications. The team is currently focused on expanding the reach of Coursera’s brand and bringing new learners to the site, connecting students to degree programs, attracting new enterprise customers — including businesses, governments, and campuses — and creating a marketing system that nurtures learners throughout their professional lives.

As Degree Marketing Associate, you will partner with Degree Marketing Managers to manage successful recruitment cycles and achieve cohort goals for our open degree programs, while building capabilities and infrastructure for the future success of these programs.  With guidance from the Degree Marketing Manager, you’ll communicate the degree marketing value propositions through a comprehensive marketing plan to reach potential students, build a program to acquire and nurture qualified leads through the consideration cycle to the point of application submission and enrollment, and coordinate with marketing departments at our partner universities.

You will have a direct impact on the growth and success of our degree programs and help shape the future of higher education.  The right candidate will feel comfortable working in a lean, performance-driven environment while maintaining a strong sense of team and collaboration.
