Hungry to be a part of the Better World Movement?

We're at an inflection point.

With the priority roles that we're hiring for in 2017, you're joining the core founding team. Beyond your specific ambitious roles and responsibilities, you'll be co-creating and implementing the systems, processes, and culture to bring BWE to every classroom on earth.

To us, a ridiculously hungry and humble culture is the skeleton key to unlock this vision. This surely isn't just a job. It's a lifestyle.

Note: If you see joining BWE as a stepping stone (if you plan to move on in 1-2 years), then timing might not be right to apply. At present, we're bringing together humans who are ready to do what it takes to make this mission reality. Entrepreneurial, hungry and humble people who are in this for the long haul.

We recommend you write your responses in a separate document and insert them into this form when you're ready to submit. It would be a shame if you're halfway through and the internet crashes or a monkey steals your computer.

And please don't hesitate to reach out with questions as you apply! (megan@reweave.org)
apply now!
 
And before spending significant time on the application process, please consider the following:

We're a small but mighty organization. We're actively fundraising, and though dependency on donations isn't our long term plan, we must emphasize that the nature of our income at present means we operate with a level of uncertainty towards guaranteeing long-term salaries, which we understand isn't a risk everyone can take with us. We want to be very upfront about this.

But with high risk comes great potential for reward. There's a reason we've got a growing crew of people ready to invest themselves in making this vision reality. And your presence, your voice, and your efforts will be essential to ensure BWE is able to deepen its impact while demonstrating value to catalytic venture philanthropists and investors. Over time, we do intend to build in new revenue streams as we provide more value to teachers and schools. You will play a huge role in making this possible, too.

Summary: your efforts, skills, relentlessness, passion, and determination could be a core reason that millions of youth and educators around the world are able to lead positive change together. If you're hungry to contribute to that movement, click the green button below!

Hi {{answer_35018641}}. What's your last name?

 
Can we get the link to your LinkedIn profile? *

If you're applying for a visual storytelling role, please also share your vimeo profile.
 
And what role are you applying for? *

 
1. Upload your "Learning CV/Resume" here! Please do not simply upload your regular CV.  

Here's an example, if you need ideas: https://hbr.org/2016/05/write-a-failure-resume-to-learn-what-makes-you-succeed.

Note: it is often called a failure resume. We believe failure only comes when we give up/quit. If you haven't done that, you're still learning. So we'd prefer to call this a "learning resume".
