Course Concierge · Aug 7th 2018
Headquarters: Los Angeles, LA URL:
My name’s Edward. I work with entrepreneur and speaker Till H. Gross and together we run Course Concierge. We’re an online course publishing house that develops courses for NYT best-selling authors, TED speakers and those with something to say.
For the right person, this is a Dream Opportunity — and dream company.
We’re a year-and-a-half-old and growing, and looking for a Managing Producer to oversee and orchestrate our productions – design, development, marketing, editorial and film.
Our clients include YouTubers with 150,000,000 views, one of the most hotly-followed health experts on Instagram, and a coach to NFL athletes, NBA players and U.S. special forces.

Online courses, for the most part, have a lethargic reputation. Compared with today’s video games things are still in the primitive stages – about as far evolved as Pong. But online courses’ possibilities are endless, and that’s something we’re set to override. A book is a book. An online course is, well, anything you want it to be. There’s a promise of the internet that’s yet to be delivered, and we’d like to be its bearer.
Each production is a serious operation, and we have many going on at the same time. There’s a picture of U.S. chess champion Bobby Fischer playing 50 games simultaneously that’s something of a comparison. We’re looking for someone who can manage four or more client productions at the same time, on topics as varied as cyber security and yoga.
Producing has a great reverence in the music world. We’d like someone who can help bring about the same in online education.
Our early works have been supremely effective – we know how to drive action. The below is just one week following the release of “The Weekend Woodworker”, a course we helped produce with Steve Ramsey:
One heuristic for a course for strength coaches: “I’d happily have this person train my mum & dad after taking this”. Another all-purpose: “Would I be comfortable selling this to my best friend?” (We need courses for which the answer is a resounding Yes.)
You need to have a definite interest in online learning, curriculum development and the future of education. To have ideas about online courses – what they should look like and feel like.
Also, you need to be something of an operational whiz. “Project management” is an awful term that does no justice to the majesty required to get the most out of a team.
