Skip's Edtech Jobs: January 27, 2024
Location-specific jobs are back in the newsletter this week!
Thank you for reading the EdSkipper, Skip’s newsletter about skipping from education to education-aligned careers. Every Saturday, I send out a list of curated remote jobs. Premium subscribers receive access to additional jobs in the Edskipper database and two additional emails a month with advice to help you apply more competitively.
Today’s newsletter is coming out a few hours later than usual because I’ve been working heavily on the backend for the database, including sourcing from an additional 40+ companies this week. (Fun fact: only 7 of those companies were currently hiring — I’m intentionally expanding the database with those small edtech companies that hire infrequently so may fly under the radar.)
You’ll see some changes to Skip over the next few months as I transition to a new website. Right now, the major changes are happening behind the scenes, and my husband and I are working to partially automate the sourcing that I do each week.
It’s a slow process and definitely a process — it’s two steps forward, one back, hope I haven’t missed anything obvious (or disruptive!), and breathing.
This is exactly why project management skills are relevant for any job you take. Being able to identify a clear set of tasks and needs, marshall the right resources, and then implement quality checks throughout (especially before you have a lot of quantitative data at your fingertips) is one of our educator super powers.
~I hope you find some fantastic jobs to apply to this weekend,
This Week’s Poll
Earlier this week, I received an email from a founder who was looking to hire a former educator for a Chief of Staff role — but I couldn’t help him because it was an in-person role. In fact, I wrote back to him, “I don’t think my audience is looking for non-remote jobs.”
I wrote about our exchange on LinkedIn because I love that he was looking for an educator. I wasn’t expecting that my inbox would soon be flooded with people asking if the job was located in their city.
Businesses have been re-evaluating their post-Covid remote policies for the last year, and I think y’all are now doing the same. Especially because remote jobs are so in-demand right now.
Are you applying to hybrid roles in your local area?
These are only some of the jobs I’ve posted this week! View all the remote jobs.
