Educational Innovators Wanted: Ignite Your Passion for Inspiring the Next Generation

At Alpha, we're on a mission to reinvent education – and we're looking for a visionary leader to create unprecedented opportunities for our students. If you're a master at building high-performing teams and have a deep passion for innovative youth development, this is your chance to make a transformative impact.

In this role, you'll have the autonomy and support to take our cutting-edge learning approach to new heights. Anchored in learning science and powered by adaptive technology, we're redefining what's possible in education. But we need your expertise to bring it to life.

You'll be the catalyst, the coach, the strategist behind our Guides – our frontline learning facilitators who don't just teach, but inspire. Your leadership will shape how Alpha Guides connect with students, from developing playbooks and feedback mechanisms to modeling exceptional facilitation skills.

Imagine combining your elite coaching abilities with a hands-on passion for youth development. Imagine leading a team that ensures our students don't just succeed but thrive – uncovering hidden talents and life skills along the way. If you've shattered records, turned around failing ventures, or achieved the "impossible," you'll fit right in.

Why choose Alpha?

  • Competitive pay - we believe you shouldn't take a pay cut to work in education
  • Generous benefits and time off - we value our team and offer a comprehensive benefits package and paid time off
  • Growth and learning culture - we model the growth & learning we expect our students to embrace, so you'll receive coaching, training, and opportunities for leadership
  • Relocation assistance available for highly qualified candidates

If you know what it takes to build a rockstar team, then join Alpha to help us revolutionize education!

What you will be doing

  • Training and developing a team of Guides to implement the Alpha learning system with world-class excellence
  • Creating Guide Playbooks detailing best practices for facilitation, designing rewarding learning activities, and navigating challenges
  • Providing regular, actionable feedback to Guides to amplify student engagement and achievement
  • Directly mentoring a small cohort of students, modeling expert coaching and motivation strategies

What you will NOT be doing

  • Writing lesson plans – your Guides facilitate students' learning through adaptive apps; your focus is on training them to be exceptional facilitators
  • Lowering standards – if our passing grade is 100%, it's your job to maintain that bar
  • Delivering boring training – you'll coach Guides through engaging, high-energy, hands-on development

Key responsibilities

Train and develop a team of Guides to implement the Alpha system with world-class excellence.

Candidate requirements

  • Possess a Bachelor's degree in any field.
  • At least 5 years of experience in education, learning and development, coaching, or a related field.
  • Demonstrated experience developing and implementing innovative educational programs, curricula, or training initiatives.
  • Strong leadership and mentorship skills with the ability to build, manage, and motivate high-performing teams.
  • Experience working with youth (ages 5-18) in an educational or developmental capacity.
  • Proficiency in data analysis and using metrics to drive decision-making and continuous improvement.
  • Willingness to work on-site in Austin, Texas. Relocation assistance is available.
  • Legally authorized to work in the United States without visa sponsorship.
