Chicago, IL, USA
Posted on Friday, February 2, 2024

inquirED was founded by teachers with the mission of bringing inquiry-based learning to every student. Inquiry Journeys, inquirED’s elementary social studies curriculum, is used in schools and districts in 30+ states to help students develop deep social studies content knowledge and build the skills essential for a thriving democracy. We’re looking for a Curricular Solutions Architect to help us ensure we’re able to define and communicate how our curriculum translates into classroom instruction and addresses the needs of varying states and districts.

We’re looking for someone who deeply understands varying state social studies standards and has a deep passion for understanding how inquiry-based teaching can be used to address those standards. The ideal candidate will be both equal parts researcher and communicator. They’ll be able to dive deep into our curriculum and state standards while also being able to clearly synthesize and communicate with stakeholders around how the curriculum meets their needs. In addition to supporting the District Sales team with collateral creation and presentation support, this person will lead our proposal writing for state and local adoptions (RFPs).

In this role:

You will use your pedagogical expertise, industry best practices, and consultative skills to architect curricular solutions that excite administrators, teachers, and students by enabling engaging and standards-aligned learning to take place in classrooms

Support Partnerships Executives in the creation of ‘one to one’ sales enablement materials (vs. Product Marketing Manager that supports ‘one to many’)

Become the team expert on standards alignment in target states and upcoming adoption states

Work closely with Partnerships Executives to articulate our curricular vision, including both print and digital components (through their knowledge of technology/integrations)

Own RFPs, manage proposal writing and submission process ensuring we have everything we need to meet deadlines
