Remote Growth and Operations

Better World Ed - New York or Remote - Full time

Better World Ed (www.BetterWorldEd.org) is a global “curriculum integration” that brings SEL and academics to life, and brings both together. Our wordless videos and short stories help students immerse in math, reading, and writing through learning about diverse cultures and perspectives around the world.

We call this "Global SEL": Global Social & Emotional Learning. 

We’ve now got a library of over 45 SEL videos (paired with 150+ stories and lesson plans) that can also help educators teach almost any Grade 1-6 math concept. And we've been iterating our recently launched platform to make the user experience more beautiful and seamless. Now it's time to deepen our capacity, scale, and impact. That's where you come in.

THE ROLE:

  1. *Priority* Sales & Fundraising: Engage school networks/districts, philanthropists, foundations, social enterprises, parents, and CSR teams in signing up and sponsoring more schools to be able to use Better World Ed in their classrooms. In the early days of the role, there will be a heavy focus on sales to schools and networks/districts (for now, all remotely).
  2. Marketing: Engage the world in learning about this work -- on a shoestring budget, digitally and virtually. We live in a time where this kind of curriculum is so incredibly important, and building awareness is key. How will you help us reach tens of thousands of educators and school leaders who have yet to hear that this work exists?
  3. Operations: Support, lead, and grow our team over time. Build the systems to operate effectively and efficiently as we grow our classroom engagement into the thousands and as we further grow our content creation and curation.

You:

  • Are ready to build an organization and movement.
  • Get things done. You're all about execution and you work incredibly hard to make things happen, whether people believe the goal is possible or not.
  • Can sell and fundraise, and in this time, virtually. Really well. You're a brilliant communicator and presenter. 
  • Have significant experience and a passion for growing a startup from 2-4 full time team members to 25+. 
  • Support quickly-adapting environments that don't have the ideal support structure yet and that require autonomous, collaborative, and resilient effort.
  • Hold yourself and others accountable through clear communication and effective goal setting.
  • Have the hard conversations without (much) procrastination and take on the most important goals first, with curiosity and energy. While helping others do the same.
  • Become a humble learner again and again, every single day. You reflect with awareness and adapt with grace and humility.
  • Love unglamorous hard work. We need to know you’ve learned the value of being gritty and resilient through ups and downs. You've got to have a bit of crazy in you to join this kind of environment with joy, and we're looking for that.
  • Act with persistence and passion driven by a clear purpose.
