Community Growth Manager

The Circl.es Mission

The rush to digital and virtual swamped us with information at the expense of human connection. Circl.es adds this magic element back by making it easy to create powerful, synchronous, small group sessions. The Circl.es SaaS platform supercharges learning programs and builds highly engaged organizations and communities. It creates safe spaces at scale to bring our full selves to address our biggest challenges. The pandemic and polarization have made this urgent. Founded in 2017, we have partnered with leadership development pioneers like Harvard Business School, the Aspen Institute and Young Presidents Organization to help people across the world grow together.


The Work

At the core, Circl.es is in the business of making space for human connection, virtually. Therefore, our work is to care for the relational touch points we have with customers and partners:  assessing needs, uncovering opportunities, casting vision & charting a course for collaborative work that will maximize leader engagement in organizations & communities – in circles, not rows.  

As a globally dispersed, early stage organization, we are passionate about creating a corporate culture that prioritizes diverse perspectives, non-hierarchical ‘circle-based’ team structures & innovation.  We aim to ‘grow together’ while creating a platform + services that enable those who partner with us to do the same.

In a world of physical distance, circles facilitate authentic human connection.

In a circle, 3-12 participants contribute equally, share openly, and push each other to act.

We spent years with academics and practitioners, honing best practices and building a technology platform. Our circles have helped scale peer learning, sustain manager and leadership development, move live training online, onboard new employees, support career development, teach collaboration, and build community.

We’ve been grateful for the support and the referrals from our large corporate partners, schools, and communities who have been hiring us to help design, facilitate and manage Circles programs.

In order to keep up with the interest in our system and technology, please help us understand your needs by answering a few questions.
