Regional Director

Knoxville, TN
Full Time




We are looking for experienced Multi-Unit Leaders to join our talented team where we inspire children to be lifelong learners through our play-based curriculum. Our affectionate and nurturing staff ensure that our children are instilled with the knowledge to succeed. We are looking for candidates that are as passionate about the growth and development of children as we are.

Effective your first day, all Otter Learning Directors, Regional Managers and Operations team members will be able to participate in the Company’s 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

How it Works: Each month, our finance team will present you the prior month’s profit by school. Each school will be measured individually. Within 30 days, you will be awarded your bonus of 2.5% of the profit from the prior month based on the profitability of each school that you support. This has the opportunity to be up to a $20,000 bonus annually based on school size and performance!

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at
