The Overdeck Family Foundation team is composed of a diverse group of individuals who share a passion for improving the future of education in the U.S. We are teachers, parents, policy makers, academics, and data analysts who are driven by the desire to find and scale evidence-based and innovative ideas that will improve children’s lives for generations to come.
The foundation offers competitive core benefits, including fully paid medical and dental insurance premiums for employees and dependents, competitive 401(k) match, generous vacation time, unlimited sick days, and employer-paid life and disability insurance. Overdeck Family Foundation requires all employees to live within a commutable distance from the office in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City. Each week, employees must work in the office on Tuesdays and additional “team days” for collaboration, with the option to work remotely on all other days. Perks of being in the office include on-site gyms with laundry service, wellness classes, snacks, and a casual dress code in our beautiful office in SoHo.
Program Officer, Innovative Schools
The Innovative Schools portfolio within the Foundation focuses on expanding access to tech-enabled, student-centered K-9 learning environments, intentionally designed for any student to thrive.
The Foundation is seeking a full-time Program Officer to lead the Innovative Schools portfolio. Reporting to the Associate Program Director (Melanie Dukes), and managing one Program Analyst (Paula Longoria), the Program Officer will refine and clarify the investment strategy for the portfolio, build and nurture relationships across the innovative schools (specifically K-9 edtech) ecosystem, and use a scientific method approach to hypothesize and sharpen an approach to support early stage and growth stage ventures to help them succeed.
