We are hiring a Teacher Success Advocate to join our Teacher Team. Mystery Science is based in San Francisco, but this is remote position so you can work from home. This is a full-time role for two months, with the possibility of becoming a permanent position.
What is Mystery Science?
Mystery Science creates open-and-go lessons that inspire kids to love science. We reach children before they’ve lost their natural curiosity so we can help the next generation develop a scientific understanding of the world. We are reaching hundreds of thousands of children this school year by helping classroom teachers and homeschoolers to teach science. Our plan is to be teaching 5 million kids in America each week by 2020 and we’re well on our way.
Mystery Science was started by two long-time friends, Doug Peltz and Keith Schacht. Doug was a master classroom teacher, a science department head, and the creator of an original science curriculum that made science the most popular subject at his school. Keith Schacht, our CEO, has started and sold three technology companies, was a product manager at Facebook, and a TED speaker.
