Company Profile

Grassroots Workshops provides flexible online professional development for educators. We believe educators should be able to choose what they learn, who they learn from, and how they learn. While most of our customers are based in the United States and Canada, we have trained thousands of educators from dozens of other countries including Spain, Qatar, China, Mexico, Vietnam, Bermuda, and Saudi Arabia.

As Grassroots Workshops grows its workshop offerings, we are scaling our remote team to include another project manager.

Responsibilities and Duties

As a remote project manager, your job will be to make sure that all of the steps are being done by the right people at the right time. This involves working with and managing other team members including the workshop instructor(s), virtual assistants, other project managers, and company president.

Initially your role will be to shadow a senior project manager, observe the processes we use, and learn how everything comes together. After this onboarding period, you will take over new and existing instructor relationships with the goal of ensuring that all stakeholders know their responsibilities and that all work has been completed according to plan.

This job will require significant technology usage including the Asana project management software and Grassroots Workshops’ custom website infrastructure. There will be several hundred little steps that will need to be managed and verified.

If keeping track of details like these sounds daunting, then this position is likely not a good fit for you. Additionally, you must be a lifelong learner. There will always be more we need to know to stay competitive, so if reading/listening to books/podcasts/blog posts is not something you enjoy, this is likely not a good fit for you.

Availability

This part-time position may be done remotely from anywhere in the world, as long as your schedule is flexible around United States morning, afternoon, and evening hours. Time commitments are cyclical and build up towards workshops that happen in the Fall (near September), Spring (near in February), and summer (near April).

Planning phases for each new workshop begin approximately nine to twelve months before the workshop begins. Planning for repeat workshops begins three to four months ahead of the workshop beginning.

There will be approximately 2-10 hours of work per week outside of the registration periods. The 15-day registration periods occur 2-weeks prior to workshop starts dates (Fall, Spring, and Summer) and will require 15-20 hours per week, twice per year.

Also note, that are instructors are often full time educators, so you may also find that the instructors are busy during the day (United States time zones) and can only work/collaborate outside of standard school days. So, flexible availability is needed. Unexpected issues may (rarely) require time during the evenings or weekends. Once registration for a workshop ends, there will be little to no work until the next workshop planning cycle begins.

So, while you may have other responsibilities and clients, it is essential that you can be 100% dedicated to these projects during each launch period.

Onboarding

You will begin your position by collaborating with the company president and senior project manager during the months of August 2019 to December 2019. By shadowing and asking questions, you should understand what needs to be done so that you can replicate and refine the process.

Benefits

Compensation is $30-$35/hr based on experience.

Job Type: Part-time, independent contractor
