Company Overview

Technology has made the world more connected, fundamentally changing how we live, work and interact; yet traditional schools have not evolved to prepare students for the 21st century. Replacing textbooks with tablets won’t be enough. We believe schools need a new foundation. That’s why we’re building an operating system that helps schools use data to respond to the individual needs of teachers and students. Our goal is to empower schools to adopt new approaches by helping them better leverage their time and resources.

We are looking for an experienced leader with deep experience in education and technology to lead a multi-year, grant-funded initiative strategically aligned with Abl’s core product. This project is called "Unlocking Time". Unlocking Time seeks to be at the center of a new movement to elevate the critical role that time plays in the success of U.S. schools. Ultimately, the project seeks to move schools away from traditional school schedules and quickly spread the adoption of new time structures that support more flexible, personalized learning environments. The Program Manager will be the driving force behind this project, including the design and development of a new web-based product to promote innovative school practices, the management of a broad-based education consortium to promote the product, the coordination of professional services to participating schools, and the development and dissemination of a public report.


  • Experience building and promoting web-based products for K12 educators.
  • Focused and a proven executor with a mind for high-level strategy, prioritization, and also be obsessed about your attention to detail in execution.
  • Experience creating and managing partnerships with a broad range of external stakeholders and vendors.
  • Strong budget oversight and grant reporting experience, especially with large scale philanthropic foundations.

Your Impact

  • Be a key contributor to the development of our product strategy and direction and be hands-on in the building process
  • Work with internal and external teams to build, release, and evaluate product and content.
  • Develop a deep understanding of the challenges facing K12 educators and use that to drive both user experiences and ultimate outcomes.
  • Identify key messaging and outreach strategies to generate a large-scale, transformative movement in K12 education.

Company Culture

Abl employees all share a passion for revolutionizing education through school design, whether or not they have prior experience working in the field. We value diversity of background and thought. We strive to create a safe and supportive environment where trust, communication, creativity, and humility are valued as highly as technical skills. We believe shared ownership builds a more resilient company, and we tackle hard problems, together. If that sounds like your dream work environment, we look forward to hearing from you.
