Skip's Edtech Jobs: February 10, 2024

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.

As I’ve been curating jobs, I sometimes run across a job description and wonder if I should share it.

Typically the role is at an edtech company but doesn’t explicitly ask for an education or edtech background.

So it seems like an obvious no.

But then there’s this line, “strong, demonstrated commitment to our mission.”

So I add it to the list.

Why? Because I don’t see this line on most of the jobs I post and sometimes I don’t even see it on all the jobs the company posts.

So when it is added, that tells me the hiring manager feels mission-alignment matters. And, often, mission alignment is what makes the difference between two equally wonderful candidates in the final decision of whom to hire.

~I hope you find some fantastic jobs to apply to this weekend,


By a 3 to 1 margin, y’all don’t like sales! I’ve got my work cut out for me with next week’s post about why sales might be worth considering.

One theme was that people feel they could only sell something they felt strongly about. I enjoyed this comment, “Hate is a really strong word, but I would really have to love, love, love the product to be able to sell it.” Some people also felt that sales people are often disingenuous or pushy. All true!

But those are also the reasons I think more educators should consider sales roles — we know how to persuade and how to identify real needs and can share them with client without being slimy. I think a lot of companies realize that pushy sales tactics drive customers away and are starting to think about more effective ways to help people understand their products.

The other worry I heard was around compensation — while sales roles often have eye-popping earnings potential, they also often have a base salary that’s lower. (Not all companies work this way, though, including many edtech companies that have a base in the $60s.)


These are only some of the jobs I’ve posted this week! View all the remote jobs.
