The role

The Raspberry Pi Foundation’s mission is to put the power of digital making into the hands of people all over the world. It’s a deliberately bold statement of our intent. Since launching our first product in February 2012, we have sold over 14 million Raspberry Pi computers and helped kickstart a global movement to get more people involved in computing and digital making. We have trained thousands of teachers, and engaged hundreds of thousands of young people in our educational programs, including our network of more than 10,000 Code Clubs all over the world. Our free educational resources are used by millions of people every year. We are also working hard at building our profile and expanding our reach into new audiences of potential digital makers.

We’ve recently opened an office in the Bay Area, and we’re looking for an Educator Program Coordinator to join a team of passionate people who help advance the mission of the Raspberry Pi Foundation in North America.

You’ll be responsible for managing the logistical aspects of our educator programs in North America, including Picademy. This will include communicating with participants and host partners, securing equipment and supplies, and planning associated community events. Moreover, you’ll work on the development and execution of follow-on programming for our educator community. You’ll report to the Educator Training Manager, and you’ll also collaborate closely with your UK-based counterparts to ensure that the vision for our programs is in agreement, and that best practices are shared across teams.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a unique place to work, with a fantastic team and a positive work culture, so we are also looking for the right personality to fit in with the organization.
