YOUR ROLE

This role will allow your love of budgeting and financial management software to align with your passion for helping K-12 employees and improving education outcomes for all students in the US. As a person with impact, you will have a chance to make a big difference for the administrators supporting our schools, and truly feel good about the things you’ve accomplished at the end of a day.
