Better World Ed curates powerful stories, videos, and lesson plans ("Empathy Challenges") from around the world to help teachers and youth transform mindsets and behaviors, academic engagement, and our communities for the better. We're at an inflection point. The “Educator Engagement Catalyst” is one of the core roles that we're hiring for in 2017 as we grow.

You're joining the core team. Beyond your specific ambitious roles and responsibilities, you'll be co-creating and implementing the systems, processes, and culture to bring BWE to every classroom on earth. To us, a ridiculously hungry and humble culture is the skeleton key to unlock this vision. Sound like your cup of tea?

We’re piloting with KIPP to consistently engage dozens of classrooms across Houston, SF, and NYC. You will focus primarily on leading this collaboration to great success. The role will secondarily involve building new educator and partner relationships across the US to consistently engage over 1000 new educators this year.



  • Primary: Build relationships with and gather outputs and outcomes data from pilot educators (KIPP) through emails, calls, Slack, webinars, classroom observations, surveys, focus groups, and other approaches
  • Primary: Mobilize and empower pilot educators to 1) use BWE effectively, 2) advocate and get their communities and networks involved, and 3) help new educators join us
  • Secondary: Recruit hundreds of new educators beyond KIPP (public schools, charter schools, private schools, IB schools) and from diverse organizations across the US to learn how to drive key outcomes even at significant scale

SUMMARY: you’re building relationships, you’re gathering data, you’re mobilizing educators, and you’re learning to drive powerful BWE learning outcomes in a scalable way


Experiences & Skills:

  • 2-4 years teaching at the K-6 level in the US
  • 1-3 years in a fast-paced, adaptive environment requiring autonomous and collaborative work
  • Proven practitioner of "educator empathy": an ability to understand the perspectives of very diverse educators
  • Relationship building: Hunger to build culture and to communicate effectively with partners, educators, and BWE team members across the US and India
