Our Mission and Values
Goalbook’s mission is to empower teachers to transform instruction so that ALL students succeed. We partner with over 1000 districts across 46 states, working closely with district and school leaders to improve instructional practice. Goalbook was founded in 2011 by Daniel Jhin Yoo and Justin Su.
Our first core value is Relationships. We believe in the power of human connection and the importance of relationships across different strengths, backgrounds, personalities, and identities in order to achieve our shared goals and overall mission.
Our second core value is Growth. We strive to create a supportive and challenging environment so that people are continuously growing as professionals and increasing their impact. We also believe in having the time, space, and support to grow in our personal lives as well.
This is not the typical leadership role. As a company, we have often sacrificed maximum growth in a deliberate effort to grow responsibly. We expect this role, as a member of the executive team, to fully embrace Goalbook’s Guiding Business Principle, which states that we strive to balance growth in three dimensions: revenue and profitability, impact toward our mission, and team experience.
Who We’re Looking For
Our most important asset is our people, and we are truly invested in their long-term experience and growth. We are looking for a business leader who understands the critical importance of human capital in building a growing and profitable business that can have a positive and lasting impact on society. While experience in K-12 education technology is desirable, we are open to people from other fields.
