The DeansList Team is passionate about improving education by giving great schools and teachers the tools to be successful. We know educators are busy enough without having to hunt for information or battle poorly-designed software. We practice what we preach and believe in regular, positive feedback.
We're a growing team based in Soho, NYC (with some awesome remote folks too). We offer competitive salary, equity and benefits packages. Other perks include seeing students improve and big THANK YOUs from great teachers.
School Success Associate
Anyone who’s spent time in a school knows that an educator’s job is hard, and teachers and administrators are expected to juggle many responsibilities. Great software can help schools run smoothly and, at DeansList, our goal is to help teachers and administrators be more effective while making their jobs easier.
A School Success Associate’s day is never the same. This role is 33% consultant/master-problem-solver, 33% support ninja, and 33% product manager. Associates work closely with school leaders to understand their ideas for improving their school, and show them how DeansList can put those plans into practice. They solve real challenges that schools struggle with every day by recommending best practices and by coming up with great ideas that truly make a difference for students. School Success Associates see the challenges schools face first-hand, and they have a critical voice that in guiding DeansList innovations.
Our School Success Team is growing fast. By joining us now, you’ll help shape the way we support our educators and school leaders.
