Digitability Sales Associate Career Opportunity

An opportunity to help people with cognitive disabilities be work-ready & gain their independence

Today, only 30% of people with cognitive disabilities are gainfully employed. Digitability's mission is to reverse this trend by preparing students to transition to their independence by teaching them work-ready skills required to gain meaningful employment in our tech-driven workforce.

Our team is already accomplishing this mission as you can see on the showcase page covering a launch event to rollout Digitability to 2,000 students in Philadelphia.  

If you're motivated, are a critical thinker, curious and enjoy collaborating with colleagues to grow something bigger than yourself for the greater good, you could be the perfect fit (job description and application instructions below). Even if you don't possess every skill, please reach out, we'd love to talk to you!
