At Synthesis, we are accelerating human progress through education. We design complex simulations and games that mirror real-life to teach kids the important things they don’t learn in school.
If you believe that kids are the future and should be learning concepts like leadership, problem-solving, teamwork, and communication – join us as we build an entirely different kind of education.
Synthesis is a global team of futurists, forever learners, builders, innovators, and engineers, but our facilitators are the heart of what we do. With hundreds of kids joining Synthesis every day, we’re growing fast! We are looking for part-time facilitators (3-11 hours per week) to join the team from anywhere in the world.This is not only an opportunity to prepare the next generation of future leaders, but one for self-growth and rapid learning. Learn a little more about Synthesis.Job requirements
About the role
You will master our simulations and mental models, facilitate an engaging play experience that fosters learning and dialogue, and help teach kids how to collaborate and solve complex problems like they will in the real world. You will watch the kids grow as a team and then leap up the learning curve, together. The work is, quite simply, life changing.
Our starting compensation is $50-$100/hr with room to grow. We also offer scheduling flexibility and we need facilitators from every corner of the globe. We are looking for candidates who possess a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and seven years of professional experience. We are not able to hire applicants from California at this time.
What a Synthesis Facilitator does
We believe students learn best through action, careful observation, and thoughtful conversations. Facilitators must be comfortable stepping back and allowing the students to help each other make sense of a problem and experiment with their own solutions. Our most successful facilitators combine wide-ranging intellectual curiosity with a high level of emotional intelligence.
Facilitators are able to identify shifts in team dynamics and mood and then ask open-ended questions to encourage student participation and critical thinking. The key to our program is fostering a space where students feel empowered to take risks and learn through experimentation.
Before starting, all facilitators receive extensive training on our virtual learning tools and software platforms. If you believe in our philosophy of education, we encourage you to apply. In-depth technical knowledge is not a prerequisite.
Facilitate discussions about both the game play and the collaboration among students.
Foster a dynamic and constructive environment that encourages every student to share their voice.
Recognize opportunities to educate kids about mental models that emerge during play.
Communicate effectively with families about the progress of each student.
Participate in company meetings and share your ideas about how we can improve.
