Amplified IT is entering our next phase of growth and looking to add a dedicated, driven, Higher Education Business Development Lead to lead our expansion into the Higher Education market.

They will be expected to work closely with our development and delivery teams to provide the best solution and experience for the customer. As we are a mature startup, we expect our HE Lead to establish their role but be flexible, and to take on other challenges as they appear.

At Amplified IT, we believe diverse teams work smarter, have more fun on the job, and empathize better with the needs of education institutions. When we hire, evaluate, reward, and promote, we strive to ensure each person is judged as an individual on the merits of their unique contributions to the work, as free as possible from bias or discrimination.
