  • Highly effective collaborator, eager to listen deeply, contribute to a team and achieve goals together
  • Dedication to learning and developing the craft of teaching
  • Very resourceful and adaptive, eager to embrace constant change, growth and learning  
  • Bachelor’s degree; graduate degree in education or related field is ideal 
  • Professional fluency in English; Mandarin Chinese is a plus

WHAT WE OFFER  

  • Unparalleled career growth opportunities across multiple global campuses, including a well-defined career pathway 
  • The thrill of a start-up, where everyone helps to build and improve, within an organization with global reach, ample resources and proven results
  • Frequent feedback, ongoing coaching and top-notch, job-embedded professional learning
