The Business

Millions of teachers around the USA are struggling to help 30+ students in their class learn math because every student learns at their own pace. In a typical fourth grade classroom, there may be students learning to count, students learning to add, students learning to multiply, and students learning how exponents work - and one teacher somehow needs to address all these needs.

Similarly, some students may be able to read complex texts and understand ideas contained within, while some students may be at a much earlier level. It’s impossible for a teacher to assign an article to the entire class and expect results - for most it will be either too easy or too hard.

Front Row makes that impossible task possible and, as of today, more than a three million students use Front Row to receive personalized guidance in their learning. Thousands of teachers use Front Row every day to save hours of time and make sure their students are growing at the fastest possible rate. Front Row is successfully venture-funded and on the road to profitability.

Why you should join Front Row

  • Our mission is important to us, and we want it to be important to you as well: hundreds of thousands of kids learn math and ELA using Front Row every month. Our early results show students improve twice as much while using Front Row than their peers who aren’t using the program.
  • This is not a traditional education sales role, because Front Row isn't a traditional education company. Our business model is quite different from others in our industry, which means this role is perfect for someone who is able to think in creative ways to combine what they've done before with brand new ways of doing things
  • In addition to doing good, we’re doing really well: in just two school years after launch, we are in more than 30% of all US elementary & middle schools.

You'll have the chance to bring adaptive learning to schools and districts, and to talk to curriculum directors and school leaders about the power of Front Row's tools.

  • Attend sales calls and webinars with senior sales staff to understand what our process looks like
  • Take a deep dive into the product to become an expert all things Front Row
  • Get comfortable with Front Row resources and the speed at how we move

  • Learn about how individual schools run, and what their goals are
  • Help school leaders see how Front Row can help them make sure their students get the best math and language arts education
  • Start learning and mastering your territory and building your name to different districts

  • Develop strong relationships and sell to lots of school leaders
  • Understand and dive into schools to determine their goals with the help of their districts, and how they allocate funding
  • Learn how to help and sell school leaders solve problems by using technology tools including Front Row

Front Row Education

Front Row's mission is to ensure every child get a world class education, and today, Front Row reaches 5 million students across 35% of American schools. We work with hundreds of thousands of teachers across the world to help them reach all of their students at their levels, so every student grows. We also help them engage their students with relevant, interesting, and effective curriculum.

Teachers all around the world continue to face the same problem they have for a century: they have 30+ students in their class of varying ability who all learn at their own pace, and no real way to reach them all. This is the problem Front Row solves: we make software and content that makes it easy for teachers to reach all their students at their level without spending all their time making content or grading. In a Front Row classroom, teachers focus on helping individual and small groups of students succeed rather than spending their time making and grading worksheets.

Front Row is a Series A funded team of 34, and is well on its way to profitability.
