Blackbird School
  • Full Time
  • Portland
  • See below for salary

Blackbird School is an innovative online system for teaching computer programming in the classroom. We believe that youth (especially girls and students of color) deserve a better shot at jobs in technology, and we have dedicated ourselves to finding a way to help.

We are hiring an Outreach Representative to connect with parents, teachers, and principals to use our platform. We’re looking for someone who fits right in at the PTA.

The main thing is we need someone who really cares about STEM education.

There will be some travel around Portland and surrounding areas.


Position requirements:

A genuine interest in learning computer programming and an understanding of why it is important for young people. We want you to experience what it’s like to learn basic programming so you can be a champion for the product. We will pay you while you are learning.

Sales experience is useful but not required.

Strong communication skills in writing and speaking. Comfortable speaking in groups.

Nonprofit background a big plus.



Initial wage will be low ($12 / hour, negotiable) with high commissions. We’ll renegotiate the compensation package once you’re making good money on commissions. This is an opportunity to get in on the ground floor and earn an equity stake in a thriving startup.

Could be part-time or full-time.
