This is a New York City based hybrid position which requires a blend of onsite work with schools and district teams across NYC, days at Urban Assembly’s central office in Manhattan’s Financial District, and work from home.

Salary Range: $78,000 - $88,000

Our target start date is November 6, 2023. Special consideration will be given to candidates who apply by October 15, 2023. This position will remain open until filled.


The Urban Assembly (UA) is a non-profit model provider of school support solutions that boost school and student performance. Under the mission of advancing students’ social and economic mobility by improving public education, the UA provides schools and districts with innovative data-driven, student-centered approaches to career and technical education, academics, social-emotional learning, and postsecondary readiness and success. The UA founded a network of unique, small public secondary schools throughout NYC. UA schools are open to all students, and our goal is to prepare 100% of UA graduates for success in the 21st century economy.

The UA values the uniqueness that each student brings into our schools, and our work honors the various social and cultural contexts from which they come. We acknowledge the historical barriers created by education systems to perpetuate the social inequities that keep students of color from accessing postsecondary and career opportunities - and commit to dismantling these barriers.


Reporting to the Director of Algebra Success on the Algebra Success team, the Algebra Success Program Manager is an energetic and inspired coach, who will contribute to the UA’s efforts to increase postsecondary opportunities for students taking Algebra I, Geometry or Algebra II for the first time by ensuring they are equipped with the content and opportunity to experience success in Algebra.

This role calls for an agile contributor, who can split their time coaching at school sites, leading professional development (virtually and in person), and collaborating with teammates at our central office in downtown Manhattan and remotely.

The Algebra Success Team is a passionate team of math educators who are leading, executing and growing a program supporting Algebra I teacher development. As part of our strategic growth, the hired Program Manager will also assist in pioneering our expansion into Geometry and Algebra II coaching. Via a guided implementation model, the team collaborates with school leaders and teachers to drive

student outcomes toward increasing Regents pass rates and credit accumulation. The team currently serves 21 schools across New York City and is looking to expand in the near future.
