About Stellic

Stellic serves higher ed students and staff, delivering great experiences to register for courses and discover their learning interests.. Remember having to navigate the course registration process, and figuring out your own path of choosing a major? Archaic, fragmented systems only added to the challenge of finding the most interesting courses. Stellic is replacing several of those systems with a unified SaaS platform that lets students collaborate with their advisors, discover the best courses, and build long-term plans. The platform helps institutions increase their operational efficiency by 10x and automates resourcing based on student needs and interests.

Founded by first-gen students at Carnegie Mellon in 2017, Stellic has grown into the 'most valuable platform on campus' serving all segments of higher ed including top research institutions (Columbia, UChicago, Duke),large public institutions (Minnesota system, Cal State Northridge, Oklahoma), and small colleges (Colorado College, Sweet Briar). We've built a mission-centric team that enjoys a 100% renewal rate, 3x revenue growth and 89 NPS. All that helped us raise $11M Series A funding from top-tier investors and we're now looking to expand our team to carry on the mission.

  • Experience with motion graphics
  • Illustration skills to bring into the platform and brand marketing
  • Crafting content strategy across the platform
  • Worked in EdTech

  • Experience leading product design of complex problems
  • Have experience designing for SaaS platforms
  • Great at strategic and tactical thinking while still coming up with edgy, out-of-the-box solutions
  • Can be scrappy and be able to move forward quickly with assumptions
  • You want to be a part of a mission-driven culture and be a team player to serve that mission
  • Have exemplary communication and cross-functional collaboration skills

Why Join?

  • Be part of the mission-centric team that's shaping new experiences in higher ed via an expandable platform that's overwhelmingly loved by students and valued by administrators
  • It’s an opportunity to join early on to a promising platform and build/lead a team critically responsible for the growth
  • Work and learn from great thinkers in higher ed, design, engineering, SaaS development.
  • Generous stock options in a Series A startup so you'll see financial outcomes multiply as we grow
  • Flexible, outcome-based culture
  • Competitive salary
  • Medical, dental, vision and life insurance for you and your family
  • 401K and commuter benefits
  • Annual international retreats with our global team (in 2022 we are headed to Dubai for a week!)
  • COVID-friendly accommodations: we’re a distributed team. Your immediate team is Toronto-SF-NYC-Karachi.

Some of the amazing things we get to hear:

  • Student: "I would describe Stellic as your roadmap, tool box, organizer, and task manager. If you ever feel anxious or feel that something’s not right, you can always go and look back on it and be on track."
  • Advisor: "Stellic has revolutionized my ability to keep up to date with my advisees' progress. What took ten+ hours to complete using SIS can be accomplished in less than an hour on Stellic due to Stellic's time-saving features like saved reports, candidate messaging, and detailed filtering."
  • Administrator: "Stellic quickly established itself at our School as a critical platform utilized by students and administration. Stellic continues to impress us with their excellent client services and relations---as well as their continuous platform development and enhancements. I do not know what we would do without Stellic--they’ve set the bar really high."
