Lead growth at the most unique app on the App Store.

Trala is a violin learning app that teaches anyone how to play the violin. The app listens to users play their real violins and provides instant feedback.

This is a crazy-hard problem that requires us to solve new problems in signal processing, app design, user psychology, and education.

Our users are ages 7 to 70 and live in rural Montana, Syria, tiny Pacific islands, Hong Kong, and of course, Chicago. Yes, you can learn the world's most difficult instrument via an app. Yes, we will teach you.

What makes Trala interesting:

  • Our product is fulfilling these peoples' lifelong dreams, and they let us know that.

  • Our users are people, not businesses or the government.

  • We grew up in Techstars Chicago and now we're generating revenue. Our investors include the CEOs of Linkedin and Duolingo.

What you will do:

  • Build and lead a growth team

  • Drive beginner violinists to download the Trala app

  • Grow the number of high-quality downloads week over week

  • Deploy, manage, and iterate on YouTube, Apple Search, and other PPC ads

  • Re-engage existing users with notification, email, and social campaigns

  • Own the data analytics associated with growth


  • Previous experience in data-driven growth

  • Experience managing advertising budgets on PPC channels like Google Ads

  • Quantitative focus

  • Demonstrated self-direction with a desire both to learn new techniques and teach others

  • An aptitude for learning quickly


The Team:

  • Sam: Violinist and engineer. Mastermind behind Trala's musical pedagogy. Uses words like 'pedagogy'.

  • Vish: Can code anything. Winner of 4 national hackathons. Has eaten a Death Sandwich and survived. The next Adam Smith.

  • Lauren: Professional artist - not starving. Like Ram Dass and Frank Gehry combined. Has been compared to a ball of floating light.

  • Joel: Attempting to unseat Vish. If transported to the middle ages would use knowledge of modern medicine to improve lives of peasants. The Muhammad Ali of Connect 4.

  • Geoff: Pro violinist. In four bands. Or five. It's hard to keep track.

  • Rachael: Pro violinist. Probably played at that white-tie gala we weren't invited to.

  • You: Shrouded in mystery (for now).

The Perks:

  • Competitive compensation package including salary and stock options.

  • Work in downtown Chicago. Great working space, free coffee, etc., we're a startup.

  • Never eat lunch alone: Trala is a family. If the mob comes looking for you we will hide you in the ceiling.

  • Our mentors are leaders in growth and app monetization. They will be your mentors, too.


Come here to learn at a rapid pace, to like the people you work with, to build something from scratch, to talk directly with users, and to become an expert in multiple fields.

As a Strategic Growth Partner, you are directly responsible for driving net-new pipeline for our Strategic Growth Managers. * In its simplest form, the SGP's role is to educate the Compass Agent Community on the benefits and importance of contributing to the Strategic Growth of Compass. Successful SGPs partner with Compass Agents to identify who in their network of Prospective Agents should be introduced to a Strategic Growth Manager. The Strategic Growth Manager then meets with the Prospective Agent to discuss the Compass value proposition (technology, marketing, culture and growth). * The role is similar to an Enterprise Account Management role due to deal size, complexity of conversation, objection handling and cross-functional quarterbacking. Dissimilar to an Enterprise Account Management role, the SGP will yield frequent, high-velocity wins. ROLE SPECIFICS * This is a more humanized interaction than you would have in your average Enterprise Account Management role. You can think of every agent as the CEO of their own business - with that comes a heightened degree of empathy needed to be successful when helping them understand the importance of participating in Compass' Growth. * Becoming an SGP at Compass will put you squarely on the bleeding edge of an ever-evolving pipeline motion. This is a brand new team. We are looking for those who display high EQ, have a builders mindset, the ability to Embrace Ambiguity, and seek an environment where change is the only constant. * Additionally, a successful SGP will be a hyper organized, relationship driven, upsell oriented sales professional who enjoys generating net new business by increasing the engagement of an existing customer base. * By virtue of the space we are operating in, the talent on the team and the incredible momentum in our business, we are seeing our members of our Strategic Growth Team conservatively generate 15x more revenue per head than the top tech firms in the world. QUALIFICATIONS * B.A. or B.S. with 2+ years of relevant experience * Strong interpersonal skills, glass-half-full mentality * Self-starter attitude and ability to exercise judgment and solve difficult problems without direct supervision * Excellent communication skills; ability to effectively lead client meetings and presentations * Highly organized; ability to handle multiple deadlines simultaneously * Track record of excellence across strategic, operational, and detail-demanding functional responsibilities At Compass, our mission is to help everyone find their place in the world. This means we continually celebrate the diverse community different individuals cultivate. As an equal opportunity employer, we stay true to our mission by ensuring that our place can be anyone's place. Urban Compass Chicago IL
