Featured Opportunities:

Research Associate (Location flexible): As a Research Associate, you will help us answer some of education’s thorniest questions: How can schools make learning fun and rigorous? How can schools provide students with the right level of autonomy appropriate to their development? What assessments most effectively gauge the evolution in students’ social emotional skills? The results of your work will be used to inspire the design of curricula, staffing, policy, and so much more both within and beyond Transcend! This role will be launching at the end of the week. You will be able to learn more and apply through our website.

Director, Finance and Operations (Location flexible): As the first Director of Finance and Operations on our team, you will lead and improve upon our financial and operational systems, develop new approaches to better support our team as we grow, and provide hands-on support to budget managers. By stewarding and managing our financial resources and operations, you will get a birds-eye view of an entrepreneurial nonprofit in action, and provide critical support to people across the organization. Learn more / Apply here.

Operations Specialist, Dream & Discover (Location flexible): The Operations Specialist will be a core member of our Dream & Discover team within the School Partnerships function, and will manage the operations and logistics for multiple cohorts of system and school leaders who are at the earliest stages of redesigning their school models. (You can see an example of what this experience has looked like in prior years here). You’ll be in charge of planning and executing on-the-ground operations for multiple in-person Convenings per year, drafting and managing important communications, masterminding travel plans and vendor negotiations, and ensuring a seamless and enjoyable experience for Transcend partners throughout the cohort-based experiences. Learn more and apply here!
