About Therese

Are you interested using your technical skills toward educational innovation? TenPlans is seeking someone with technical expertise and an entrepreneurial spirit to join our team.

TenPlans is an online platform to help teachers tackle their most difficult planning challenges by leveraging when teachers plan (evenings and weekends) with connecting them with people who have the knowledge and resources they need. The selected individual will work closely with the CEO, having the opportunity to play an active role in the early stages of the company’s development.

The ideal candidate is a driven, hard-working person who takes the initiative to bring technical designs and unique (when applicable) solutions to technology challenges in the development of the platform. You should be well spoken with effective communication skills, both speaking and writing. You should be passionate about education, specifically making it easier for teachers to teach and you should believe that all young people deserve access to a quality education. These beliefs will permeate through the entire company. The required responsibilities include:

- Develop the platform from the early stages of the MVP to full scale deployment
- Regularly attend team meetings
- Bring in other people with areas of technical expertise as needed

When applying, include an example of a product and what most inspired you about developing it. In another paragraph, explain why you you are the perfect person to work on this product.

Depending on work with initial projects, may be considered for role of co-founder.
