About us

Front Row's mission is to ensure every child get a world class education, and today, Front Row reaches 5 million students across 35% of American schools. We work with hundreds of thousands of teachers across the world to help them reach all of their students at their levels, so every student grows. We also help them engage their students with relevant, interesting, and effective curriculum.

Teachers all around the world continue to face the same problem they have for a century: they have 30+ students in their class of varying ability who all learn at their own pace, and no real way to reach them all. This is the problem Front Row solves: we make software and content that makes it easy for teachers to reach all their students at their level without spending all their time making content or grading. In a Front Row classroom, teachers focus on helping individual and small groups of students succeed rather than spending their time making and grading worksheets.

Front Row is a Series A funded team of 34, and is well on its way to profitability.


What you tell your friends you do

"Teachers have it hard - they get insufficient support from their districts and have 30 kids in a class all at different levels, making it impossible to really reach them. I get them incredible technology and curriculum so they can actually do what they got into teaching to do - guide students through their journey of learning."


The Role

It's an amazing opportunity to join a new sales force where we have more leads than we know what to do with!
