We’re looking for an effective manager with strong written and oral communication skills who is comfortable working collaboratively with multi-discipline marketing and IT groups, user experience designers, content strategists, and other stakeholders.

If you want to lead technical work on exciting projects, be part of a great technology and communications team, share our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness AND wish make a real difference in the lives and futures of kids in our society, here’s how to do it.
There are more than 16 million children growing up in poverty in the U.S., and less than 10 percent of them will graduate from college. These statistics are not a reflection of our children’s potential; we know that children growing up in poverty can and do achieve at the highest levels. Rather, these statistics reflect the systemic lack of access and opportunity for children in low-income communities.
Teach For America’s (TFA) mission is to find, develop, and support a diverse network of leaders committed to expanding opportunity for children from classrooms, schools, and every sector and field that shapes the broader systems in which schools operate. We are seeking individuals who align with our mission, core values and commitment to Diversity Equity & Inclusiveness and are ready to join us in this global movement.
THE MUST HAVES Prior Experience
Highly collaborative, IT partners with every other team in the organization to create world-class technology solutions that our staff and corps members use to effectively and efficiently pursue our goal of getting all kids in the US access to educational opportunity. We work with some of the largest names in technology, and leverage the latest software, equipment, and expertise. Our team works very hard, but we also have a lot of fun. We enjoy game nights, quarterly trivia outings, and themed potlucks where we get together to eat and explore each other's cultures and favorite recipes.
By joining staff, you join a network of individuals committed to pursuing equity for all students and developing themselves as professionals in the process. We as an organization value the longevity of our employees and offer a full benefit plan that has proven to be pretty competitive.
