You’ll lead, coach, and develop an admissions team providing qualification, application collection, and enrollment services to colleges and universities across the US.

  • Paid holidays and PTO
  • Paid parental leave (including maternity, paternity, adoption, and fostering)

Location

  • Enjoy the flexibility and comfort of working from the remote location of your choosing. Is your workspace located in an RV that takes you all over the country? Maybe your office is tucked beside a horse stall inside a barn that overlooks Kentucky’s rolling hills. We don’t care! Your basement, a spare bedroom, or a desk in your bonus room:  you choose.

  • Up to 10 percent travel is possible as health conditions permit and job responsibilities dictate for leadership meetings, staff retreats, professional development, etc. (Most of the travel will be to our team meeting space at the aforementioned beautiful Kentucky horse farm where we are headquartered. Trust us; this is the kind of work trip you always want to take!) 

Fun, Games, and Authentic Relationships

At Enrollment Builders, you are more than an employee. You’re not a cog in a bloated machine but an integral member of our larger close-knit community. 

Despite being a remote team, we intentionally prioritize authentic relationships. You always have direct access to the CEO and the leadership team. Engaging in open, honest communication and possessing a willingness to have your teammates’ backs will make you successful here. We value each employee and recognize each person’s unique skills and gifts. We want everyone working to their strengths, and to feel included, accepted, and celebrated.

At EB, we believe in work/life balance and extending emotional support. We know there’s more to life than work, and that’s why we make time to get to know one another outside of our jobs. Through virtual coffee chats, online Pictionary games, weekly trivia contests, holiday white elephant games, and bake-off competitions, we have fun, swap stories, and make memories. 

What’s It Like to Work at Enrollment Builders • Thoughts from our employees

I enjoy working at EB because our leadership cares about and truly listens to their employees. I also get to speak with students every day to help them begin their next educational chapter.
