How Our Hiring Process Works

1. Application: Each job announcement linked above will take you to Indeed to submit your application

2. Reference check: We speak with two to four former managers or peers to get their perspectives on the great things you bring to the table for scholars every day.

3. Phone screen: We have some questions for you and expect you have some for us as well. Let’s get to know each other a little better.

4. Data exercise: Strong data practices are key to great instruction. This exercise allows you to see how we approach data and gives us a sense of your background in this realm.
