Better World Ed curates powerful stories, videos, and lesson plans ("Empathy Challenges") from around the world to help teachers and youth learn to love the practice of empathy and math. And we're at an inflection point. The “Growth Lead” is a core role as we grow in major US cities.

You're joining and supporting the core team. You'll be co-creating and implementing the systems, processes, and culture that enable us to efficiently and effectively grow. We believe a culture of empathy, humility, grit, and accountability is the skeleton key to unlock this vision.

We’re piloting with KIPP this year and we’re signing up 5000 new teachers across the US (public, private, independent, and charter) to use their first lessons in 2018. You’ll play a critical role in executing this mission. 

Timing has never been better for this role: we’ve now got a library of over 40 videos (paired with 100 stories and lesson plans) to help educators teach almost any K-6 math concept. We'll be improving the lesson plans as we gather broad and deep feedback, and you're going to lead the way there!


THE ROLE: Build awareness. Mobilize educators.

  1. Grow: Recruit thousands of new educators through large school/educator partnerships, media creation, blog/magazine/news articles, optimizing viewership of our video content, and through creative social media strategy to help us iterate on how to drive key outcomes at significant scale
  2. Mobilize: Design scalable strategies to help educators in our network engage their peers to use BWE in their classroom. Design and execute strategies to share examples of content being used, and creatively iterate on how best to engage our educators
  3. Note: you’ll have very little support and structure. We’re a small team that doesn't have anyone yet in a role focused entirely on operations and culture. If this isn’t something you're excited about and clearly ready for, we’re definitely not the place to be right now. And as we grow, all the areas here ( will be what this role can evolve into.


Practices You'll Pour Effort Into:

  • You support quickly-adapting environments that don't have the ideal support structure and that require autonomous, collaborative, and resilient effort. 
  • You hold yourself and others accountable through clear communication and effective goal setting.
  • You have the hard conversations without procrastination and you take on the hard goals with curiosity and energy.
  • You're humble. You're really a learner.
  • You hustle. You’ve learned the indescribable value of being gritty and resilient. You act with persistence.
