Team Spotlight: Meet Ryan Vanshur

We’re big believers in the power of building relationships and strong connections with real humans. To help you get to know us better, we’re putting the spotlight on each of our team members. Our Meet the Team series continues this week with Ryan Vanshur, our Chief Success Officer.

What is your role at CourseKey?

Chief Success Officer.

What does your day to day look like?

That’s a good question. Which day are you referring to? Basically, I coordinate with different parts of the organization to make sure that our various customers have everything they need to be successful and get the most value out of using CourseKey.

Describe your job in 5 words or fewer.

Get ‘er done.

What is your favorite challenge of your role?

It’s not specifically a favorite of this role, but the growth. I enjoy the levels of different roles and responsibilities and getting to rise to the occasion and become the person I need to be to fulfill the role I’m in.

What do you enjoy most about being a part of CourseKey?

For me, just seeing something that I helped build from the idea stage turn into something that’s touching so many people’s hands. And getting to help solve the challenges that have come up along the way.

What is your favorite memory from when you were a student?

Standing in front of a class of 350 students, in a class that I was actually taking as a student, and telling them they would be using CourseKey that semester.

If you could get on a plane to anywhere right now, where would you go?

Hawai’i. It’s the closest flight and I’ve never been there before.
