Educator Community Manager and Founding Team

Kiddo - New York - Full time

The Opportunity

Are you a current or former Early Childhood Educator looking to make a big impact in the ECE industry? We're looking for an all-star Early Childhood Educator to join our team and build up a community of fellow educators in New York City.

You will be the Kiddo ambassador for early childhood educators and get them excited about how we can help them build an exciting and fulfilling career in ECE.

As one of our first team members at Kiddo, you will fundamentally shape the course of our company and you'll limitless growth opportunities in your role. Our co-founders have both been founding team members at early stage start-ups and know how valuable it is to build an amazing team of early hires!

What you will do...

  • Connect with amazing NYC early childhood educators, get them excited about Kiddo, and help them get started on the Kiddo platform
  • Spearhead various initiatives and events to recruit teachers onto Kiddo and build brand awareness—including in-person info sessions, recruiting fairs, college campus visits/presentations, dinner gatherings, conference appearances, and more.
  • Be the first line of support for NYC educators to help them create their Kiddo profile, navigate the platform, and connect them with open job opportunities on our website
  • Promote Kiddo via our social media channels and help with PR
  • Build partnerships with key stakeholders in the early childhood education sector, including non-profits, government agencies, and local colleges and universities
  • Gather teacher input/feedback on our product to help define the crucial new features to build into our platform

You're a fit if you...

  • Are an Early Childhood Educator (currently or previously)
  • Live in NYC or are willing to relocate or commute there daily
  • Don’t want a “100% work from home” job—you love the idea of being “in real life”—meeting teachers for coffee dates, organizing in-person events, and visiting schools and centers
  • Dream about joining an early stage startup, are ready to roll up your sleeves, and like to take risks

Working here is awesome because...

  • We’re moving fast so no two days are alike. Projects and priorities will be shifting continuously! If constant experimentation and a dash of chaos are your thing, this is the perfect place for you.
  • This is not the kind of job where you show up and we tell you exactly what to do everyday. We trust your judgement, value your input, and support you 110%.
  • We get to make a difference in the lives of early childhood educators and childcare workers—amazing people who have a tremendous impact on society.
  • Our greater vision is to spark growth in the childcare industry and promote equity in the workplace. The pandemic has shown that when childcare doesn’t work, neither can parents. We care deeply about the advancement of women in the workforce, and we believe that the future of work depends directly on the future of childcare.
  • Everyone on the team is extremely mission-driven and works incredibly hard to push towards our greater vision!
