Team Read is seeking an exceptional systems thinker with a passion for education, youth development, and racial equity. This is a full-time equivalent position, exempt, local to the greater Puget Sound area. 

Systems Coordinator is a new role for Team Read, with significant opportunities to build on a long track record of organizational impact and success, improving on what works to arrive at what scales. The Systems Coordinator is the leader of internal processes, documentation, data management, and systematization of our work so that we can grow what we do and increase the reach of Team Read’s life-changing literacy and tutoring model. This person will know how to roll with big ideas and manage fine details at the same time. They can keep processes running smoothly while making room for constant improvement and innovation. They are a curious systems thinker and builder who also loves help others adapt to and adopt a more efficient and thoughtful process. A member of a small but mighty team, they are self-directed but not siloed.

You’ll report to the Director of Expansion and support the whole organization with your systems-thinking expertise. You’ll be the CEO of making sure things run smoothly. Your core responsibilities will include:

Leadership & Collaboration: Leadership is needed in every role at Team Ream; we have a collaborative work environment where we all pitch in. You’ll be a leader and collaborator on things like:

●       The 30,000 foot view annual organizational calendar that reflects program work, administrative deadlines, relationship milestones, as well as fundraising and development activities.

●       Making sure our data is as high-quality as it can be, and that data is shared with our external evaluation and our communications and development team for continuous improvement and maximum impact.

●       Serving as the point person/task supervisor for special project teams, like graduate student interns or Team Read alumni.

Systems Stewardship & Streamlining: You’ll be the keeper of the details, lead organizer of materials and data, so that Program Coordinators and other staff have exactly what they need to execute their work. This includes things like:

●       Recruitment and onboarding processes and materials for readers/families, teen coaches, site coordinators, and site partners

●       Airtable and the ways we use it to gather program data

●       Packaging our signature Reading Library so high-quality materials are consistent across all sites

●       Reviewing and documenting processes regularly to identify and implement automations and integrations across systems and help others to help themselves using our systems and processes.

Training & Troubleshooting: You’ll be the point person for teaching internal systems and tools to team members, the go-to troubleshooter when a system isn’t working quite right, and the person we look to to think through systems we don’t have yet but need to build. This part is always evolving, but includes things like:

●       Creating and maintaining standard trainings for systems like Airtable and Office 365

●       Documenting how status changes are made when coaches are active/inactive

●       Creating a system for updates in site enrollments or sharing program data with schools


Qualifications      

●       Passion for education, youth development, and racial equity

●       Strong systems thinking, not only about your own workload, but about the processes and delivery of our work as an organization.

●       Attention to detail is critical, especially regarding data integrity and documentation

●       2 or more years of experience doing coordinator level work with a team

●       Experience using a program delivery database or CRM

●       Experience training others on using digital tools

●       Excellent interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills

●       Commitment to learning and engaging in anti-racist practices and to an environment that values diversity, equity, and inclusion

●       Motivated, entrepreneurial, confident, organized, flexible, and comfortable working independently while also maintaining a strong commitment to teamwork and collaboration

●       Proficient in MS Office Suite, AirTable, Salesforce, and other management software a plus

Postsecondary or continuing education in business or nonprofit management is valued but not required and may be replaced with direct professional experience.
