About our Client Happiness / Sales Team
At Edrolo, our mission is simple: to improve education. We are a high-growth, fast-paced, values-driven technology company, and we build next-generation learning resources that are in use at 800+ secondary schools across Australia.
We dedicate a real human to each of our client schools, with the goal of driving sustained behaviour change in teaching and learning practices within and for each school. We know that improving teaching and learning is complex and takes time, good planning, consistency, and true passion. Our Client Happiness Team works with schools to build enduring relationships and, in the process, we move well beyond promoting Edrolo products to become trusted advisors to our schools. This is where you come in!
Our sales philosophy is all about “right product, right school, right time” and our metrics reflect this. We achieve 98% client retention each year, indicating true satisfaction with both Edrolo’s products and the services we provide to support their implementation year-on-year.
Our Client Happiness Team sits within the broader Sales Team and works extremely closely with our Client Support Team and other departments within Edrolo, such as our Content and Technology teams. In other words, we’re a company that focuses deeply on cross-team communication, collaboration, and shared growth.
Our offices in Sydney and Melbourne are relaxed, open spaces. We dress casually and work hard. We're constantly pushing ourselves and each other to achieve, to make things better, to drive us all forward.
