• QUALIFICATIONS, LOGISTICS, money, etc.

    We're at an inflection point. Joining us now means joining the core founding team. Please review individual role descriptions for which hiring phase and location each role is slated for.

     

    Beyond your specific ambitious roles and responsibilities, you'll be co-creating and implementing the systems, processes, and culture to bring BWE to every classroom on earth. To us, a ridiculously hungry and humble culture is the skeleton key to unlock this vision. It's what people tell us makes BWE unique.

     

    Note: If you see joining BWE as a stepping stone (and/or if you plan to move on in 1-2 years), timing might not be right to apply. At present, we're bringing together humans who are ready to do what it takes to make this mission reality. Entrepreneurial, hungry and humble people who are in this for the long haul. This is not a resume builder.

    our core focus

    Since 2014, we've created and curated incredible stories from India, Indonesia, Ecuador, USA, Guatemala, and Kenya. Today, we're focused on collaborating with organizations in new regions. Our next round of stories will focus on inclusion, diversity, community, connection, wellness, and holistic health. We'll be learning about these topics through the lens of elders and youth in communities we share experience and chai with.

     

    Our focus before next academic year is to:

    1. Complete math content for K - 6th grade
    2. Learn as much as possible from our educators as we build out the curriculum 
    3. Onboard thousands of new teachers

    In this new phase, you'll be leading things you wish you had more support for and you'll be championing huge projects often without a clear answer of "whether you're doing it right". We value autonomous and collaborative hybrids.

     

    You'll be building on the content that various teams have created before you. You'll be working and playing with 2-4 people primarily in the Bay Area and/or Bangalore, and also around the world -- in apartment-offices, landscape partners' offices, parks, apartments, buses/trains, and wherever else enables awesome outcomes.

    team curriculum

    Join a room full of people hungry to learn and grow. Get in on the culture brewing that's ahead:

    • Engage with 6-12 relevant books and tons of articles each year alongside the team. For starters, we'll read these.

    • Be part of discussions, conversations, and reflection sessions with team members and key players in the BWE network. Focus on integrating what we're learning with the curricular content we're building.
    • Build the curriculum you dream of for your children -- and help ensure they will have access to it, no matter what school environment they enter. 
    • Engage with BWE content as a core team in weekly meetings, culture building, etc.

     

    And as we grow, we'll be introducing all kinds of new learning and growth layers. Examples:

    • Guest speakers from GU Modules
    • Guest speakers from classrooms
    • Group and personal mentor matching
    • Coaching sessions and courses in specific things like impact investing (when our team makes enough to invest)
    • Salsa lessons
    • Unlimited books (if you actually read them)

    what does growth mean for this movement?

    The team we're building won't prioritize credit or a beautiful portfolio or global recognition or expert status. We simply want this curriculum in the hands of every kid (and human) around the world.

     

    To achieve that vision, we need collaboration. We need community. We need humility. We can't let scarcity mindset limit our sense of possibility. We don't need 300 or 500 people on payroll to see this movement happen. In a few years, we'd rather have a core team of 25 or 60 building creative partnerships with existing infrastructures/organizations to meet the demands of curriculum reaching classrooms around the world.

     

    We're here to be the fuel for the movement, not yet another vehicle competing for space. We're building this whole infrastructure without focusing on who gets credit, and we won't stop until every existing organization and network is able to leverage BWE to lead change in the world. We're on a mission to build a self-sustaining system/cycle of content creation, educator engagement, and deep lasting change.
