LOOKING FOR PASSIONATE INDIVIDUALS TO JOIN OUR TEAM!

MULTI-UNIT LEADERSHIP PREFERRED

We are looking for experienced leaders to join our talented team where we inspire children to be lifelong learners through our high growth early childhood education business. We are looking for candidates that are as passionate about the growth and development as we are.

PARTICIPATE IN OUR PROFIT SHARE PROGRAM!
Effective your first day, all Otter Learning Operations team members will be able to participate in the Company’s profit share bonus program. We are calling this program, the Profit-Sharing Program because it allows you to do just that, earn a percentage of the profit for each school you support! In speaking with many you and others in the industry, we believe this is the best approach for the following reasons:

  1. Orients all team members towards running a “healthy business” that allows the Company to reinvest back into the schools and the team
  2. Aligns all stakeholders and allows directors, regionals and corporate team to think and act as owners of their schools and make strategic decisions that they will benefit directly from
  3. Each school is at a different stage in its development. By focusing on profitability, we eliminate any disparity between schools that are at full capacity and brand-new schools
  4. After assessing our existing format, we found that it was not as straightforward as it should be and did not provide the same material incentive as a profit-sharing model
