TNTP – Why Work With Us?

We are dreamers who set benchmarks. We never quit asking questions. Our people are talented in and beyond their jobs. 

We're personally invested. 94 percent of staff say they are confident in TNTP’s direction and are proud to work here.

We’re insatiably curious. As one person put it, “Working at TNTP is like going to grad school, except you get paid.”

We're always growing. Leadership Lab, our signature staff development workshop, is known for good food and thoughtful discussion.

We’re virtual, but close. In home and district offices, we stay connected with IM, regular face time and virtual book clubs.

We prize diverse perspectives. 4 in 5 staff agree that TNTP has an inclusive culture where people of different backgrounds can thrive.

We bring diverse perspectives and experiences to the work, but we’re united by a passion for great teaching and a culture that’s all our own. 

Caring. Our people are the secret to our success. We care where you want to go and will help you get there.

Inclusive. We speak authentically, listen carefully, and cherish our colleagues’ unique strengths.

Adaptable. Change is a part of life at TNTP, and our ability to evolve brings us closer to our mission.

Persistent. We don’t let setbacks derail us or the fear of failure deter us; instead, we learn quickly from our mistakes and show uncommon progress with each new effort.

Courageous. Sometimes being courageous means telling it like it is. Sometimes it means admitting we were wrong. Almost always, it means putting ourselves out there.

Candid. We like to say and hear things straight. We know that doing our best work takes debate, empathy and the honest truth.

Our people work all across the country—in school and district offices, from home, or out of our small headquarters in Brooklyn. 

67% of TNTPers work from home

11% of TNTPers work from our Brooklyn office

22% of TNTPers work in schools or client offices

We’re inspired by great teaching, pushed to new heights by our colleagues, and passionate about public schools.

Reimagine your impact. We don’t just call for change—we create it. Each day, we roll up our sleeves and do what it takes to give more kids access to a vibrant education.

Reimagine your team. We are educators—more than half of us were teachers or principals—as well as data gurus, wordsmiths and policy pros. We’re big fans of diverse perspectives, humor and good food.

Reimagine your commute. We work out of our small office in Brooklyn, in school districts, or in home offices and coffee shops. We enjoy flexibility, and love working alongside the educators we serve.

Our benefits are designed to give everyone at TNTP a full, healthy life.

Stay healthy. TNTP pays the majority of employee-only medical coverage with a well-known, national health care provider, and subsidizes costs for spouses, domestic partners and/or children. We offer dental, vision, and flexible spending accounts for medical and dependent care expenses.

Build a nest egg. TNTP offers an attractive rewards package, including highly competitive salaries and the possibility for performance-based bonuses. We also offer a 403 (b) retirement plan, and will match 50 percent of your contribution on up to 14% of your salary.

Grow constantly. Our staff take advantage of an array of professional development opportunities, including conferences, trainings, courses and professional memberships.

Get some R&R. TNTP employees earn paid vacation based on position level and years of service. Staff can earn up to 20 days annually, in addition to 5 paid personal/sick days and most federal holidays. There’s also paid parental leave for new mothers and fathers.

Other perks. TNTP also offers pre-tax commuter benefits, 100% employer-paid life and disability insurance, emergency child and elder back-up care, and an adoption reimbursement benefit.
