TalkingPoints - Remote - Full time

About TalkingPoints

TalkingPoints ( is an award-winning education technology non-profit on a mission to make it easy for any parent to be engaged in their children’s education, especially in low-income, diverse communities. Parent engagement can drive student success twice as much as a family’s socioeconomic status, yet underserved, diverse families struggle to get involved. We help teachers and parents build relationships, shift mindsets, create communities and understand what effective parent engagement looks like so that students can be better supported in their learning. We’re building a one-of-a-kind product in the market – a multilingual family engagement platform with AI and human-powered two-way translation, and personalized coaching content.

Thousands of teachers are using TalkingPoints in their classrooms, and school and districts across the U.S. are using TalkingPoints for Schools and Districts in their school systems. We’re on track to reach millions of students and their families by 2020 – TalkingPoints is solving a real problem. We have won awards from MIT,, Ashoka, Forbes and are backed by AT&T, Google, Comcast NBCUniversal, NewSchools Venture Fund, General Motors and Stanford University, to name a few. Learn more.

Diversity: we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it!
