  • You take pride in defining measuring, and achieving success criteria (e.g., 3-5 metrics that let you know whether or not the learning program you rolled out achieved the organization’s goals)
  • You have experience using storyboarding/script-writing tools (e.g., Canva, Sketch) and client-facing learning management systems to design and execute on learning programs for commercial end-users (e.g., professionals in a corporate environment rather than students in an academic setting)
Who You Are

What You’ll Do

  • First Week: You’ll learn the ins and outs of the current Quorum client experience, gain exposure to our products, and the public affairs world. You’ll start learning about the Customer Success Team’s processes and the training processes. 
  • First Month: You’ll totally immerse yourself in the Quorum product and evaluate our current training materials. You’ll start to work with members of the customer success and product team to establish the key objectives for Quorum’s training program and have a rough project timeline.
  • First Six Months: You’ll have established a full project plan for Quorum’s training program. You will manage and create all training materials with limited help from the product team, customer success team, and other subject matter experts.
  • First Year: You will analyze how the training program accomplishes the set objectives and ensure that the program meets our company goals and continue to edit. You will suggest improvements to the next iteration of the training program based on findings. 
Who We Are

Consistently named one of the top D.C. start-ups to watch since 2016, Quorum builds software that helps public affairs professionals work smarter and move faster. Our philosophy is people-first, whether we're supporting team members in their careers or prioritizing our clients with a best-in-class customer success program. Quorum's clients use our tools to bring a modern approach to advocacy work in Congress, all 50 state legislatures, major U.S. cities, the European Union, and more than a dozen countries.

We usually work in a vibrant, sunlit space in our modern, open-concept office. During the COVID-19 health crisis, most of our team members are working from home in locations around the world. Team members will have the option to work from home until September 13th, 2021. Those that feel safe re-entering the office earlier can apply to be part of a pilot re-entry program. All candidates need to be willing and able to relocate to the Washington DC area in 2021. Our office building is located in the heart of downtown DC, easily accessible by metro, bus, and rideshares. It is also in close proximity to great restaurants, food trucks, shopping, and popular happy hour spots. Our team loves to spend time doing fun things outside of the office, which we call Quorum Fun events. Past Quorum Fun events have included apple picking, yoga, and wine tasting

If you'd like to have a big impact at a fast-growing company that is changing the way the advocacy process works, drop us a line. We'd love to talk to you!
