CampusESP is Strategic Parent Engagement
Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.

Careers at CampusESP

At CampusESP, we develop innovative solutions for student success. Many technology solutions address student advising needs by reaching out (or "nudging") students. CampusESP is unique. Instead of vying for the attention of busy college students, CampusESP "nudges the nudgers": students’ parents and family.

Why do we care about parents? Good question. Our research shows that college students interact with their parents more than 13 times a week, and parent engagement can boost student persistence up to 15%. We understand that parents, as the most influential people in their students’ lives, can directly impact student success... if they’re informed.

CampusESP provides a "one-stop shop" for parents to see personalized news and events, student record information, and prescriptive alerts. Think social-media-platform-meets-CRM, plus secure data control for students. We’re working with major universities like Penn State, Auburn, Temple, and UNC Chapel Hill to support their student retention, recruiting, and giving goals.

WHY US?

We’re a funded early-stage education tech startup located in the heart of Philadelphia. (We work out of Pipeline Philly, an awesome coworking space across the street from City Hall.)

As a member of the team, you would join our small but growing company. Beyond just slinging code, helping customers, etc., you’d participate in the entire product development process. Have new ideas that you think would help? Then bring them! We want to hear your input. And when you build a feature, you get to see it from ideation to complete rollout. Your ideas matter.

It’s an exciting time to come on board at CampusESP, with our first round of funding in the bag, new customers rolling in, and a growing team to work with.

Sound exciting? We’re excited to work with you!
