Overview

Overview:

We are looking for a multi-talented, intellectually curious, and process-oriented analyst to iterate, implement, and execute ROI analyses for Climb’s prospective school partners. You will work closely with the Partnerships and Partner Success team, and your contributions will directly influence Climb’s strategy and expansion.

 

Who we are:

At Climb, we’re building a new type of student lending company: one that we would want to use and one that always finances an education benefiting the student.

We started Climb because the status quo for funding traditional higher education doesn’t work. Students graduate deeply in debt, never earning enough to pay back their loans.

Climb is different. We work with leading schools and educational platforms around the country, scouring the nation to find the best sources of high ROI education – education that not only works, but is affordable. Our platform enables students to afford modern, transformative education delivered in an efficient and sustainable fashion.

We’ve raised hundreds of millions of dollars of lending capital from financiers such as The Blackstone Group and Goldman Sachs. We are currently 30 passionate technologists and business people excited to be changing the face of modern education.
