Curriculum Associates is a rapidly growing educational technology and publishing company committed to making classrooms better places for teachers and students. Located outside Boston, we are an innovative, collaborative, and mission-driven company that has been consistently recognized as a Boston Globe Top Workplace and a Boston Business Journal Best Place to Work.

We are looking for talented individuals to join our growing Sales Operations Team. As a Sales Support Analyst, you will partner with a group of Sales Representatives in a specified region of the United States, leading operational support in that region. You will become an expert not only in our product offerings, pricing, and sales process, but also in your region of focus. You will develop collaborative working relationships with the Sales Representatives in your region. You will hone your analytical and data-driven problem-solving skills while gaining an understanding of the K-8 educational industry. In addition to working with the sales team, you will interact with a variety of other departments, including finance, Bids & RFPs, account management, and customer service.

While you will have regular interaction with the Sales Representatives in your assigned region, this is not a customer-facing role, and you are not responsible for generating leads, closing sales, etc.

  • Provide Sales Representatives with price quotes for Curriculum Associates products and services
  • Guide Sales Representatives through the operations side of the sales process, from opportunity to purchase order
  • Support the maintenance of opportunities in Salesforce
  • Answer Sales Representatives’ questions regarding: our pricing, policies, product configurations, quoting and order fulfillment process, and Salesforce
  • Provide our Bids & RFPs team with pricing for RFPs in your region
  • Engage in further developing internal tools and processes by providing your ideas and feedback regarding their performance, efficacy, and efficiency
  • Support our customer service team by providing information needed for the entry of complex orders
  • Process sample orders for educators and sales representatives
Why you’ll want to join our team:
  • A supportive, collaborative, and welcoming working environment
  • Opportunities for growth and learning in an expanding team
  • See your voice and efforts effect positive change for educators and our company
  • Gain insight into operations across the company
  • Build your knowledge of the sales cycle and order fulfillment process
What we’re looking for:
  • Bachelor’s degree with 0–2 years of work experience
  • An organized, detail-oriented individual with excellent time management skills
  • Analytic, critical thinker who enjoys solving problems
  • A clear and concise communicator both verbally and in writing – especially via email
  • Ability to balance working both independently and cooperatively with a wide range of people
  • Someone with a growth mindset who is curious, ambitious, and loves to learn
  • A person who thrives in a fast-paced environment, and adapts well to change
  • Tech savviness with Excel familiarity, and a drive to further develop Excel skills
We’d also love to see (though not required):
  • Experience with Salesforce
