We help people move fearlessly and think critically
At Breathe Education, we help people transform into confident, fearless and scientifically literate movement teachers. We guide them along the path to success and hold them to high standards along the way.
We don’t just say that, we mean it and we do it every day; we work damn hard at it, and you will too if you join us. There will be long days and incredible challenges, but the reward will be contributing to something that is larger than yourself. We want you to bring the hustle, grit, and passion to everything you do here. You will be expected to take high ownership and improve yourself constantly. You will be held accountable to our 7 Core Values and will be expected to hold your teammates accountable as well. Our values are what unify us and allow us to make the impact that we do. They are crucial on our mission to becoming the undisputed world champion of online science-based movement education.
We believe the online experience of our students can and should be seamless, silent and invisible, so they can focus on learning and transforming themselves, not wrestling with technology.
Likewise, our team will do their best work when the technology is invisible and reliable, and they can focus on connecting with prospects and students and facilitating a transformational learning journey
We believe our industry is ripe for disruption by a technology driven, premium brand that makes transformative online training accessible for movement professionals worldwide. We know this will require serious integration and automation across multiple platforms to build a scalable high-touch platform that is an order of magnitude better than anything else in the industry.
By better, we mean integrated, seamless and invisible. So good you don’t notice it.
We need you to build that set of integrations with us. We need to automate processes like video file uploading to Amazon Web Services, processing and distribution to platforms like Vimeo and YouTube, we need to integrate diverse apps like Infusionsoft, WordPress, Shopify and Totara (our learning management system) and we need to craft custom code within each of those apps to achieve seamless integration for our students, with single sign-on, integrated billing and continuity of client notes and other information across platforms.
We have big dreams, ambitious goals and high standards, and we’re also on a rapid growth trajectory, so right now things are constantly breaking as we outgrow our systems. We need you to troubleshoot and recommend next-level solutions that move us closer to our goal, not just put band-aids on things.
The coding team, of which you will be the founding member, will be truly integral to our growth and our ability to serve our students and become world champions of online science-based movement education. This role is at the very heart of our business engine and will form a load-bearing wall for the marketing, sales, training, student success and finance teams.
These are our seven core values. We hold them dear and place a high emphasis on embodying each of them on a daily basis. Living these values forms an equal part of employee performance appraisal along with role-related KPIs.
- We prioritise self-care
We exercise or move daily, we take time for ourselves, we manage our time and energy so that we bring our best self to each interaction and each task.
- We face challenge with optimism
We take ownership of our emotions. We don’t complain, instead we generate solutions and act to implement them. When we are faced with a setback or obstacle we proactively and cheerfully look for opportunities to adjust, persevere, innovate a solution or take advantage.
- We use science and data
When we make decisions or discuss options, we come with data to back up our opinions, and we change our minds when presented with compelling new information. We act quickly and decisively to address student feedback BUT first we carefully differentiate between a small number of very vocal people and an actual trend in student behaviour.
- We foster people to reach high standards
We expect hard work, optimism and respectful behaviour from our colleagues, our students and ourselves. We don’t buy into people’s stories about why they can’t succeed; instead we coach our students and our colleagues to do the things they need to do in order to become what they want to become.
- We innovate and improve constantly
We change our minds and behaviours quickly when presented with compelling new data. We work constantly to improve our own skills and intelligence through reading, self-education, mentoring and formal training. We constantly review our processes and ask the question “what would this look like if it was easy?”
- We are radically candid
We give each other and our students completely frank, unvarnished, and timely feedback on behaviours and the effects of those behaviours. We give feedback with love and respect. We focus our feedback on the behaviour not the person. We do not complain about people when they are not present, or roll our eyes, instead we simply address the problem behaviour directly, respectfully and candidly.
- We strive for simplicity
We employ 80/20 thinking in all things by focussing on our Big Three and the Mission. We prioritise tasks that will either move these forward the most, or that will make many other tasks redundant. We strive to design processes, policies and technology whose purpose and use are self-evident to the user, so they don’t need instructions. We remove unnecessary information, steps, clicks and visual clutter from everything we do
