  • Make Bold Bets: We only make bets on teams that think big, challenge the status quo and approach systems change with rigor, creativity, and optimism.
  • Build New Expertise: We are never done exploring. We excitedly seek out new challenges and learnings. We aren't afraid to be wrong before we are right.
  • Are Owners: We are all biased toward taking responsibility. Our assumption is that it is our job. The buck stops with each and every one of us.
  • Are Creative and Inventive: We constantly come up with innovative ideas. We are always thinking about ways to do things better.
  • Have the Highest Standards: We raise the bar for ourselves, for our partners, for students, and for education. The status quo is not good enough.
  • Biased Toward Action: We can't always move fast in education and so it's imperative that when we can we do. There's never certainty about the best path forward. We are comfortable moving forward without certainty.

Preferred Location: Remote, US-based. Southern California preferred.

We value and encourage diversity and solicit applications from all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, gender, sex, age, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, medical condition, veteran status, gender identity, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law.
