Recruiter, HR, and Ops Generalist - AVELA - Education equity startup with Nobel Prize

Avela Education - Multiple Locations or Remote - Full time

Avela is the first platform for school application, admission, and enrollment with a focus on equity. We're looking for an HR and operations generalist to lead our hiring efforts and support business operations.

We're a small, but quickly growing edtech startup, so your role will evolve frequently. You'll start as our primary recruiter and talent sourcer to help grow our team, hiring engineers, designers, marketers, sales executives, customer success specialists, and more. Then you'll get them onboarded and handle many HR matters. You'll also help with company operations and probably jump in to help with marketing efforts.

This is a great role for someone whose primary focus is recruiting and HR, but who gets bored easily and wants a variety of responsibilities to keep them busy and intrigued. Comfort with ambiguity and ability to juggle many tasks is critical.

Company

Avela is an education technology startup focused on equity in education admissions and enrollment. We give enrollment, admission, and award officers the tools to make equitable decisions about the allocation of educational opportunities.

We work with school districts and charter networks across the country, including Oakland Enrolls, Tulsa Public Schools, Jersey City Board of Education, and New Orleans Public Schools. We also work with a range of nonprofits and NGOs, including Teach for America and the Inter-American Development Bank, as well as the US Military.

Our platform has four parts to cover each stage of the admission journey, from exploring options to applying and final selection and admission. Our flagship product, Avela Match, is used for running coordinated matching markets to assign individuals to programs, such as public school placements in choice districts. We also offer a range of consulting services to help districts implement enrollment reforms and advance equity in educational programs.
