Are you ready to work at the forefront of merging advanced technology, sustainable practices, and operations management within a dynamic educational setting? Alpha School, nestled in the heart of Austin, TX, is on the lookout for a Facilities Operations Specialist driven by innovation and the desire to redefine educational spaces. Our approach at Alpha transcends conventional learning paths, where our campuses become more than just buildings—they're incubators for "Masterpiece Projects" and self-discovery journeys. Your role is crucial, not just in maintaining facilities but in evolving them to reflect our commitment to education that empowers students not only to learn but to thrive.

Alpha stands as a pioneer for envisioning a world where education equips students for real-life success, advocating for a future where learning is accelerated and embraced with passion.
