Work With Us

Education Strategy Group is a national consulting firm that works to support states, communities, national organizations, and foundations committed to dramatically improving the capacity and performance of the U.S. education system. We bring deep experience leading policy development, advocacy, and implementation work in the K-12, higher education, and workforce sectors. We promote a flexible work environment to stay engaged with education leaders nationally and to enable our staff to work where they have built their lives.

Commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion

We believe that diverse and inclusive communities are the strongest communities. Just as we are driven to advance equity through our work, we are committed to building and supporting a team of professionals with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives reflective of the diverse communities we serve.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and do not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, status as a veteran, and basis of disability or any other federal, state or local protected class.

Positive work culture

We are constantly working to improve our organization to achieve greater impact for students, families, communities, and states. Success in these efforts requires teamwork; we are strongest when working together and take pride in the collaborative nature of our work. We are committed to building and supporting a team of professionals with diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. We seek talent that has a deep passion for the mission of improving student success and interest in working with a team that takes its work—but not themselves—seriously.

Flexible work environment

We know that the real work of improving students’ lives does not take place in Washington, D.C. Our flexible work environment enables our professionals to live and work in locations where they can be most productive—both professionally and personally. As former governor’s advisors, state agency staff, and district and college administrators, we are highly attuned to the importance of deep local connections and we value the broad perspectives that living in diverse communities brings to our work.
