Director of Community & Business Development


Paragon One, an online college career service backed by YCombinator, is seeking a Director of Community & Business Development who will develop our mentor community and build intern-matching partnerships with companies across various industries. 

About Paragon One

Paragon One is an online college career service center.  Our video coaching platform connects students with mentors from successful companies who help them figure out which career to pursue, which courses to take in college, and how to prepare for the job interview process.  We are starting with a group of talented international students and plan to expand to students everywhere.  So far, 100% of our students have received internship/job offers in fields like finance, consulting, marketing, engineering, and design. 

Parents can spend as much as $200,000 on college for their kids.  But when it comes to a career, the best that colleges can do is offer a career center with counselors who merely spell check student resumes and hand them a book of jobs.  We believe that, in the future, professionals will be mobilized to provide career education in their field to students.  Colleges will not be the ideal place for this type of learning anytime soon.

Paragon One is backed by YCombinator, Foundation Capital, University Ventures, the former CTO of Tencent, and the Chief Product Officer of Coursera.  We have been featured on National Public Radio and Sinovision US TV as well as at the Silicon Valley Innovation Forum, Global Education Technology Conference, and Global Internet Education Summit.  The company was founded by two MIT-trained engineers who have started and run 3 successful internet companies and are now reshaping career education.
