Crossover is the world's #1 source of remote full-time jobs. Our
clients offer top-tier pay for top-tier talent. We're recruiting
this role for our client, GT School. Have you got what it

You've seen the horror stories: gifted and talented young people
who lack the basic life skills to navigate adulthood independently.
GT School is here to change that. Not only do we believe gifted &
talented (GT) students are capable of performing at the highest
level academically, we want to ensure they have the core skills to
succeed in life. Skills like grit, determination, and time
management are essential! We are developing GT students who are
capable of leading, collaborating, and learning at the highest
standards in every area of their lives.
We are building a team of aggressively open-minded, rule-breaking,
entrepreneurial leaders to define the life skills curriculum for US
K-12 students. You will spend the day creating (doing not
delegating) and debating what kids really need to know to succeed
and be happy in life. You'll then build programs and workshops for
the kids where they can learn and demonstrate their mastery of each
component skill. And you'll do this at scale - ensuring 10,000 kids
can learn at the same time and to the same high standards.
This isn't the role for traditional educators. We aren't leveling
the playing field or making sure everyone wins. We aren't building
a curriculum filled with academic exercises or group-work. This
role will require you to deeply understand various life skills and
their practical application.
We're looking for people with experience building remote training
programs and developing EdTech products, with a strong point of
view on which skills kids need to succeed in life. If this sounds
like a challenge that's perfect for you, apply today!
What You Will Be Doing

these broad, vague terms into specific, concrete skills to
Finding or creating a curriculum that passes rigorous evaluation
standards and adapting it for a remote learning environment
Creating innovative, real-world scenarios where students can

What You Won't Be Doing
Delivering the life skills program yourself - we believe learning
works best when it's self-paced and student-led.
Developing a series of lectures, readings, or videos - we believe
learning happens through hands-on activities that are so fun kids
forget they're learning!
Designing a program where everyone can succeed on the first try -
we believe kids value challenges as much as adults do, so you'll
design assessments that have high quality standards and allow kids
to fail forward.
