Who We Are
Transcend is education’s “R&D Engine,” enabling communities to imagine, create, and spread learning environments that truly prepare all students for what the future demands. We do this by playing two vital roles:
To play these roles, we are building three core assets that not only serve our work but also grow the field’s capacity for R&D in critical ways:
As a start-up organization with a push-the-boundaries view of education, we’re excited by new ideas and the prospect of building and maintaining great, scalable systems from day 1. We need an Operations Coordinator who thrives in a fast-paced virtual organization, and can help us be efficient, stay organized, and use our time most effectively. We have a portfolio approach to work -- so each team member's projects periodically shifts. Your first set of projects will include supporting the teams focused on school partnerships. You’ll draft and manage important communications, be the first line of communication in many instances, prepare for meetings and presentations, mastermind travel plans, conduct research, manage select team members’ calendars (to support external partnerships and hiring), and tackle special projects.
You’ll report to Jenee Henry Wood, Chief of Staff, and will work closely with other members of the team.
The Nitty Gritty
There’s no boxing you in, my friend-- you’ll learn and grow with us! In this role, you will:
Who You Are
You believe deeply that all students deserve an excellent education, and that too few receive that today. You excel at thinking through all the small, behind-the-scenes details that create powerful, nurturing experiences for all. You take initiative, manage your time effectively, and pride yourself on your ability to get and stay organized. You enjoy helping others get organized, too (if only your best friend would ask for help tackling their closets...). You’re optimistic, a problem-solver, and enjoy finding flexible, effective solutions where there’s not always a “right” answer. You’re open to feedback, eager to grow, and bring your best to everything you do. You like being part of a team, and make and keep friends easily. You have a sense of humor, and want to work with others who do, too!
