Bridge International Academies in need of Supervisor, Instructional Design.


  • The Instructional Design department produces the learning materials that are used in our schools across our communities.
  • This department has team members based in multiple Bridge support offices, organised into teams that each work on a portfolio of projects under the leadership of a Director.
  • Driving student achievement through the development of rigorous content is the number one priority.
  • One core tenet of the approach is less lecture (traditional among many schools in our markets) and more student practice. Consistent, rigorous opportunities to refine his or her skills are crucial to a child’s learning progression.
  • The Instructional Design department structures all lessons, textbooks, and other materials to ensure this.

What You Will Do

  • Manage your team of associates and provide team members with detailed feedback -especially on product quality -on a weekly basis
  • As the supervisor on this team, you supervise a team of writers tasked with creating these materials. In this deadline-driven environment, finding the balance between speed and precision is key.
  • You’ll need to be comfortable telling your team that they aren’t meeting deadlines, and then help them find a way to do so, all the while ensuring the lessons are high quality. Feedback will reach your team at different intervals, and you’ll need to figure out how to respond to it.
  • At times, the projects your team is working on will need to change; your job will to keep everyone on the same page and steadily moving forward, even when unexpected challenges arise.
  • Pitch in where needed on miscellaneous projects to help with other academics departments or other instructional design teams

What You Should Have:

  • A Bachelor’s degree
  • 3-5 years teaching experience strongly preferred
  • Ability to write and speak fluent English
  • Experience working with Excel, Word, and Google Drive
  • Extremely detail-oriented, organized and deadline-driven
  • Flexible, willing to jump in and help wherever necessary, no matter how big or small the task
  • Good problem-solver, analytical thinker
  • Self-motivated and comfortable creating solutions without a lot of support or structure
  • Comfortable working in a demanding and sometimes high-stress environment
  • Clear communicator – both verbal and written
  • Lover of feedback – giving and receiving.

You’re also

  1. A detailed doer – You have a track record of getting things done. You’re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a start-up or other rapid-growth company.
  2. A creative problem-solver – Growing any business from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, Bridge works in often fragile, sometimes volatile low-resource communities and with complex government systems. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand.
  3. A relentless advocate – The children we serve and teachers we empower never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent’s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like. Every decision you make considers their benefit, experience, and value.
  4. A malleable learner – You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others. You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
  5. A data-driven decision-maker – When making decisions, you don’t rely your intuition alone. You collect data, you analyze it and make decisions with clear justifications.
  6. A curious investigator – You ask why a lot. You don’t just take what you see and accept it. You wonder why it is that way, and are aware that the world we see is created by human choices and actions – and it could be different. You wonder, and see the world as wonderful even when you want to change a part of it that is unjust.
