LOCATION

Albert has a headquarters in Chicago, with some employees distributed across the nation in fully-remote roles.

However, we have had success with remote roles and are willing to hire great colleagues anywhere in the U.S. for remote positions


WHY US? 
Our culture is our best competitive advantage. We stress freedom of opinion, think long-term, and strive to empower bottoms-up decisionmaking. You’ll work with talented and humble teammates who will always be there to support you and who care just as much as you about making an impact on education. Your managers will genuinely care about your success, growth, and wellbeing. Most importantly, you’ll learn a lot and have a ton of fun along the way.

BENEFITS

Health, dental, and vision insurance. We offer a range of options, including the best BCBS PPO Platinum plan available. The company contributes 99% of our great base health plan (employees pay the difference for more expensive plans) and 85% for vision and dental.
One Medical. We cover enrollment in One Medical to provide all employees with convenient access to primary care.
Paid parental leave. Parents are eligible for up to twelve (12) weeks of fully paid parental leave after a year of service.
A 401k plan. Save for retirement with a fully managed plan.
Commuter benefit. Use pre-tax earnings on your commute through our managed platform.
Flexible, guilt-free vacation. Take guilt-free vacations with no hard limit. Just be reasonable and considerate of the company and your teammates.
Remote work. Prior to COVID, we had a flexible work-from-home policy. As a result of COVID, we are embracing hiring positions remotely, or based from our office in Chicago. When things return to “normal”, we will continue to have a flexible work-from-home approach.
