Community Manager

🔴   Closed

As the Community Manager, you will be responsible for growing our digital community spaces both on Discord and the Fiveable app. You will also be the leader in spearheading new community growth initiatives that will align with our move beyond APs, and will own the trust & safety program that help keep our students engaged and safe.

You thrive in stressful situations and feel comfortable making decisions that benefit and center  students, as well as drive up retention rates. Building new systems, optimizing existing infrastructure, and creating cross-functional feedback loops genuinely excite you. Most importantly, you aren’t afraid to experiment, fail, learn from your efforts, and try again.

We are especially interested in finding a candidate that is representative of our student population. We strongly encourage BIPOC, queer, trans, first-generation, and other individuals from historically marginalized communities to apply.

Our mission and team

Our mission is to make learning easy and fun. We know that educational inequities have left students overwhelmed and fending for themselves. In order to close the opportunity gap, we need to create space for students to be creative and curious. To do this, we've created a social network for online learning communities through interactive content and courses. Because of COVID, we're in a lightning strike moment for education and we're fired up to change the way things are for high school students.

We're a creative group of former teachers, community builders, game designers, and generally curious people who are driven by social impact. We're focused on building a diverse team and are inclusive of all backgrounds. And we're big on growth mindsets - we're all learning!
