"Note: This role will require ~1x /quarter travel to support offsite."

ClassDojo's goal is to accelerate humanity’s progress, by giving every child on Earth an education they love.

We started by building a network that connects teachers, children, and families. ClassDojo’s flagship app is the #1 communication app connecting K-8 teachers, children, and families, globally. They use it to share what’s happening throughout the day through photos, videos, messages, and activities. It is actively used at an unprecedented scale: in over 95% of US schools, reaching ~51 million children in ~180 countries, with a team of just ~200 people [1]). We are now beginning to use this network to give kids the best learning experiences in the world, far beyond those a standard school can provide.

We hire for talent density. Our team comprises the most talented, entrepreneurial, and innovative teammates from around the world, with experience in education and large scale consumer internet companies, including Instagram, Netflix, Dropbox, Stripe, Uber, Y Combinator, and more. We’re building a company where the most talented people want to work. We believe you’ll do the best work of your life here—and you’ll pioneer the future of education, too.

This role will provide executive operations support to the Head of Marketing, Head of People, and Head of Revenue.

What you’ll do:

  1. You'll create systems for leverage: optimize calendar to ensure leaders time and energy are spent in the highest-leverage ways
  2. You'll supercharge relationships: proactively build an excellent network for the leader
  3. You'll own communication: ensure proactive, clear communication from leaders

You will be a match if:

  • You have 5+ years of supporting a high-functioning company leader(s); enough to have developed good systems and judgment.
  • You have seen and are comfortable with 0→1 / 100-500 people phase.
  • You don't just ‘work harder’, but think about how to set up repeatable systems.
  • You are able to step back and assess situations before reacting.
  • You play a key role in setting a tone of calm focus + positive energy.
