What We’re Looking For

This role can earn increasing levels of responsibility over time. We love the life-long learning endeavor that is education. And we equally love learning from each other, and helping develop one another.

This role is for a humble, hard-working, self-starter, with excellent communication & problem-solving skills. This person wants to constantly improve the customer experience, is focused on problem-solving and sharing possible solutions, deeply curious, persistent and perceptive, collaborative and kind, detail-oriented and diligent, strategic and has a strong work ethic, and is someone who enjoys the value of having fun along the way. Classroom experience is a bonus!

The job isn’t a job, it’s a lifestyle. Our small team is open and in constant communication via numerous group messaging and other remote/collaborative/productivity tools. We are a growing company and no job is beneath any of us.

Values Statement

We enjoy the Edtech space and education in general. There are lots of problems to solve, and this is what motivates us. This is serious work, for serious people… but we try not to take ourselves too seriously. We know we either grow, or we don't. It’s often all hands on deck, all pushing a rock up a hill, a hill with an unknown summit. We kindly communicate and occasionally sarcastically rebut, smiley face emoji. Grit, we bootstrap, we get er done. We think this work is fun, really fun, but we honor ahem encourage ahem require work-life balance. We honor that we all bring our whole lives and stories to our collective efforts to singularly focus on our mission, so that our vision may become manifest. We serve. We push, but it never comes to shove. We walk the talk. We trust each other.
