You will have the opportunity to immediately contribute and see the results of your work in use by students, teachers, parents and district administrators across the country.

Culture and People: building out our organizational practices, principles, and modes of operating to make Otus the best possible place to work.

Human Resources: implementing hiring, onboarding, compensation, review, and other personnel practices that are foundational for individual growth, team performance, and company compliance.
