Careers

Learning Bird is committed to providing voice for Indigenous peoples in education. We do this by creating quality, classroom-ready materials that teachers can easily and confidently integrate into their classrooms.

We also help Nations preserve and revitalize language and culture by collaboratively creating community language resources, and documenting stories.

We are currently looking to add the following roles to our team:

  • Media Design/Video Editing Coordinator
  • Partner Development Specialist
  • Education Content Creator
  • Video Editors/Media Designers

If you are interested in working with us but are not a fit for either of these roles, you are welcome to send us your CV along with a note about how you can contribute to our team.

Are you an experienced and highly organized video editor/media designer on a project management career path? Do you think you have what it takes to help a team develop effective workflows and implement new processes that will make everyone their best selves at work?
