National Field Leader, Mathematics

The Organization

Open Up Resources is a nonprofit developing the highest quality full-course curricula available to districts, provided for free to promote instructional equity.

We partner with the country’s foremost materials experts to develop superb curriculum and deliver essential implementation support, from professional development to printing. Our mission is to provide students and educators with equal access to rigorous, standards-aligned core programs.

The Role

We are seeking a dynamic individual to lead our Mathematics Field Engagement Team, leading sales of professional development services, print services, and other services that allow schools and districts to successfully implement the Open Up Resources mathematics core programs.

Our mathematics curricula are “going viral,” spreading rapidly among US districts. Under our competitive compensation package, the National Field Leader will have an opportunity to elevate mathematics teaching and learning at national scale while being highly compensated for this important work.

Our organization is driven by our social justice mission to put high-quality curricula in front of as many students and teachers as possible. If you’re a mathematics-savvy sales and marketing leader, or a district leader seeking new challenges, and you’re looking to join a nonprofit that improves learning experiences for kids and educators, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Manage relationships with go to market partners as well as partner districts, state governments, and other key stakeholders in our work.
