FULL-TIME CURRICULUM DESIGNER POSITION

Wife Teacher Mommy is a small online business looking to expand in the education space. We offer printable and digital teaching resources to teachers and homeschool parents to cut hours off of their planning time so they can enjoy other areas of their lives. We sell them on our own website, Teachers pay Teachers, and Etsy. In addition, we are also planning to launch a membership model on our website in late 2021.

If the idea of making a difference in education while working remotely lights you up, please read over our core values and see if you are a good fit for our team: 

Our Core Values

We are go-getters

We are a small and mighty team that is ultra-focused on our mission. We are ready and eager to jump in and do the work. We strive to do every job to the best of our ability. We work with intention, which means that when it is time to work, we are fully focused on the task at hand. We pull our fair share of the weight and rely on ourselves and our resources to figure things out before asking others. Google and our team docs are our best friends, and we take ownership of our positions. We create realistic deadlines and then hit them on time, every time.

We are learners

We are educators at heart and love learning in every way. We are always striving to improve our work and work more efficiently. We know that we will make mistakes at times, but we take ownership of our mistakes and learn from them so it doesn’t happen again. We are never afraid to improve and take feedback because we know that being willing to learn and grow is never a bad thing. We not only learn to develop professionally, but personally, and love investing into our personal development so we can be strong people and leaders in every area of our lives. We also love learning new tasks as needed to grow the company, expand our vision, and serve our customers.

We are team-oriented

We stay in the know of how things are going on our team.  If there is anything that may keep us from making a deadline, we communicate that with the team well ahead of time so a new course of action can take place. We plan ahead so we can take worry-free time off, which means we don’t need to check in on work when we are out. Since we communicate ahead of time, a plan is already in place for when someone is on vacation mode or needs to take time off. We like weekends and try to get most of our work done on the weekdays so we can enjoy them. We believe in work/life balance and working from a place of rest rather than a place of hustle.

Learn more about the open full-time position below!

POSITION: Curriculum Designer

REPORTS TO: CEO

JOB TYPE: Full Time, W2 Salaried Exempt Employee

SALARY: Starting Base Salary $40,000/yr plus bonuses based on performance once trained, you are rewarded when we succeed! (bonus amounts TBD)

LOCATION: Remote, but hoping to hire an employee located in Utah since we are registered for employment there and we like to be able to hold occasional in-person meetings. Utah residents preferred, but any U.S. resident may apply if you feel you are a strong candidate

Role (Overview of the Position):

The role of the curriculum designer is to take ideas for resources from the CEO and turn them into finished teaching resources for Pre-K through 6th grades in all elementary school subjects. Most of our teaching resources will be created in printable (PDF) and digital (Google Slides) formats. The curriculum designer will get some creative liberty while implementing these ideas and will be a sounding board for new product ideas with the CEO. 

Responsibilities (Tasks associated with the Role):

  • Creating resources from start to finish (often using product templates) under direction of the CEO
  • Differentiating resources ranging from Pre-K through 6th grades
  • Writing lesson plans and creating worksheets using PowerPoint
  • Converting finished PowerPoint files into PDF and digital Google Slides formats
  • Creating preview files to give an overview of what is included in each resource created

  • Proofreading resources for our other part-time curriculum designer (both curriculum designers will usually be working on separate projects, but will swap resources for proofreading. They can also bounce ideas off of each other, as well as with the CEO)
  • Once fully trained on product creation and we have a good idea of how long the projects will take a full-time employee to complete, we may choose a few small marketing tasks to train this employee on. This could be a nice change of pace for an hour or two on some days to mix things up a little bit.
  • Other duties and tasks as assigned. We are a small team and sometimes duties shift a bit, so we want someone who can be a bit flexible when needed.

Results (Expected Accomplishments):

  • The resources created for our customers are completed and posted with all complete components of a product listing by the deadline

  • Access to high-speed internet and your own computer
  • Must be a licensed teacher in K-5 and be proficient in creating resources for Pre-K through 6th Grades
