We partner with over 500 school districts across 45 states, working closely with district and school leaders to support their teachers. Goalbook was founded by former district administrators, Daniel Jhin Yoo and Justin Su, was a member of Y Combinator/ImagineK12’s first cohort and the first company to be funded through New Schools’ Seed Fund, now Reach Capital.

You’ll play a key role in designing our educator-facing resources in Goalbook Toolkit and Pathways and our company website.
