Crossover is the world's #1 source of full-time remote jobs. Our

You graduated from a great school with an interesting degree--- and
the job market hasn't noticed. Or maybe the job market DID notice
you - but you have yet to find a position that truly lights you up
and puts your skills to good use.
If you're a high achiever with a deep love of learning, an
entertaining personality, and a healthy disdain for antiquated
educational structures that stopped working around the time
electricity was discovered, then Alpha is the place for you.
Alpha is a new kind of school. You won't find stuffy lectures or
rigid lesson plans here. Instead, we've built a place where
students can learn at the right speed for them, rather than having
to wait for their peers to catch up.
In place of traditional learning tools, Alpha offers students
adaptive apps and unique motivational strategies, all rooted in
scientifically proven learning principles like mastery and spaced
repetition. Our students learn twice as much as they would in a
"regular" school - discovering their strengths, fostering their
interests, and picking up valuable life skills along the way.
Instead of teachers, Alpha hires entertaining, energetic, and
inspiring individuals like you who connect with students on a peer
level. You will be responsible for motivating and encouraging
students to achieve challenging academic goals--- while actually
Instead of the traditional class structure with one overworked,
underpaid teacher scrambling to hold the classroom's attention all
day, Alpha students enroll in daily 1-hour workshops. Popular
topics of past workshops include mindfulness, business management,
sleight of hand, baking, robotics, and lots more.
We make three promises to parents:
- Your child will genuinely love school and develop a true thirst
- Your child will learn at least 2x faster than they would at a
regular school, through the use of adaptive learning apps and
learning science principles.
- Your child will learn valuable life skills to supplement their
Along with exploring creative problem-solving and rational
thinking, kids learn essential communication and emotional
management skills. Alpha students graduate fully prepared for
whatever next step they choose - whether that's attending a
prestigious university, launching a startup, writing a book,
founding a nonprofit, or anything else they're driven to do.
Please apply if---
- You're a gifted, relatable motivator who can connect with kids
on a peer level
- You have experience as a camp counselor, athletic coach, or
similar non-teaching role
- You're a role model who holds yourself to the same high
standards you expect from your students
If you've never really considered working in education, but you
believe the K-12 experience can shape kids' lives, we want you at
What You Will Be Doing
- Leading live Workshops: You'll teach live workshops to students
ranging in age from K-12th grade. Along with offering material that
sparks the desire to explore and learn more, you'll coach students
on valuable life skills like public speaking, focus, and giving and
- Holding daily Motivation Sessions: Because so much of personal
success comes down to mindset, you'll help students set a positive
tone for their own daily learning as they advance.
- Cultivating student success: Following our playbooks, you'll be
responsible for ensuring that 100% of students achieve their
academic goals and master core life skills.
What You Won't Be Doing
- Traditional teaching: At Alpha, students learn solely from
self-guided, adaptive learning apps. You'll be there to help them
connect the dots, apply their new skills, and problem-solve along
the way - no lectures required.
- Disciplining: The old-school learning model of pushing kids to
the point of burnout or disengagement doesn't apply here. Instead
of punishments, you will share behavioral corrections and
respectful reasoning that gets results.
Career Coach key responsibilities
- Bachelor's degree in any subject
- Legal right to work in the US without visa sponsorship
- Willingness to relocate to Austin, TX
- Desire to spend your day motivating and coaching K-12
