What it’s like to work at School Loop
We like to think of ourselves as the world’s oldest start-up. We’re lean, nimble, customer-centric, and agile. We believe deeply in our mission: We love helping teachers save time, kids get better grades, and parents keep their cool. Maybe that’s because we are teachers, parents, and kids at heart. Working from home isn’t for everyone, but we all love it. You will need to work independently, collaborate with colleagues from afar, and be happy without the full social experience of an office. And, yeah, we’re all adults. Not much beer pong going on.

Our work is organized around the ebbs and flows of the school year, so different parts of the company tend to be busy at different times. While this role has a set of monthly work, most of the invoicing activity occurs in one bust in July, for instance.

What we offer
Competitive salary based on experience and location.
Flexible location – anywhere in the US, though most of our customers are in California.
Full suite of benefits including health and dental, options and 401K and vacation time.
All your expenses are covered regarding home office, equipment and services.
