Community Lead, gt.school (Remote) - $60,000/year USD

Job ID: 4752
Description

Are you looking for an entry-level role at an EdTech startup? Do you have a personal connection with the gifted and talented youth community? 

gt.school is a remote afterschool program that unlocks the full potential of gifted and talented students. Our program is built around three core pillars: adaptive learning apps that enable students to accelerate their academic learning, one-on-one life skills coaching, and a supportive community where they can form friendships.

In this role, you will design and implement strategies to engage gt.school students in online communities around their interests, which range from robotics to baking. The kids run the community; your role is to engage with them and help facilitate their ideas! You will be an essential team member, building an understanding of our students and what appeals to digital natives. Your insights and ideas on building and nurturing an online community will help students connect with one another and empower them through collaborative learning.

This role allows you to develop and deliver one of the three core pillars of gt.school. It is a great stepping stone for a career in product marketing, product management, or community management. As an early member of a well-resourced startup, there are ample opportunities to direct your own growth and development with frequent feedback from the founding team.

If you understand gifted students and are excited to build a vibrant online community, apply today!

  • Generating ideas and insights that will grab the attention of students

What you will NOT be doing
  • Recruiting or training a team of moderators, influencers, or content creators
