We believe, and research shows, that student and stakeholder feedback matters for school improvement and student success.

We’ve heard from over 2 million students, parents/guardians, and school staff members, across 39 states and five countries. We’ve coached thousands of education leaders through the process of receiving and acting on high-quality feedback data, and we are rapidly growing.

  • Has an empathetic customer service orientation.

  • Is a self-starter, capable of working independently and collaboratively.
  • Is motivated by team goals.
  • Has a high level of personal integrity and commitment to excellence.
  • Has a minimum of one year of relevant professional experience and a Bachelor’s degree.
