Associate Math Education Director (K-12) - Irvine
Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) develops educational opportunities for many of the most eager students in the world. Since 2003, we have trained tens of thousands of the country’s top students, including nearly all the members of the US International Math Olympiad team, through our online school, learning centers, textbooks, and online learning systems. Over the years, our international online community of advanced problem solvers has grown to over 800,000 members. While our primary focus has been math for most of our history, we have expanded into new subjects, such as language arts, science, and computer science.
We currently have 12 physical AoPS Academy locations across the country and one Virtual Academy. Each physical campus location has one Campus Director and 2-4 Associate Directors based on the number of campus enrollments. All of our directors have a strong background in either Math or Language Arts. We are currently seeking a new math Associate Director at our new campus in Irvine, CA to help lead and inspire the next generation of intellectual leaders.

Since AoPS Academy is an after-school program, most of our classes and family meetings occur during the evenings and on weekends. As such, it's expected that Campus Directors and Associate Directors work a nontraditional schedule during the academic year. During the summer, Directors and Associate Directors typically shift to a more standard Monday to Friday work schedule.
This position includes a competitive salary, health insurance, dental insurance, a 401K retirement plan, and a raise structure-based on-campus performance. We also provide a relocation bonus for candidates living outside the Academy area.
Please note that employment is contingent on the successful completion of a background check.
