Academic Dean, Alpha - an EDU Startup (United States) - $100,000/year USD

Job ID: 4878

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an in-person role located in Austin, Texas.

Do you know the secret formula to crush the AP exams, SAT, or ACT? If you aced your own exams and are ready to help other students do the same, join Alpha!

Alpha is building the Stanford of K-12 education. We are a private equity-backed EdTech startup with a life-changing value proposition for students and plans to expand rapidly. We make three promises to students and their families: students will love school, learn 3-5x faster through adaptive learning apps and learning science principles, and learn valuable life skills to supplement their academic training.

In this role, you will map the content and skills needed for our high school students to ace the SAT, ACT, and AP exams. Then, you'll compare that to our current curricula and identify gaps. Next comes the fun part! You'll find the very best resources to deliver that missing content - testing hundreds of apps, games, and online videos to find the most effective and engaging options!

If you're ready to help revolutionize education, apply today!
