We are looking to hire a Residence Life and Housing Manager to foster a vibrant residential community for a diverse group of current Make School students. You’ll manage a team of resident assistants (RAs), be responsible for ~150 residents, coordinate housing logistics for both Make School students and third-party clients, collaborate with the students experience team to facilitate student learning, and serve as the primary on-call staff member for after-hours student issues.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to build a residence life program from the ground up in a dynamic-fast paced learning environment. We need you to jump-in with both feet to help us create the student experience outside the classroom. You'll report up to the Director of Student and Academic Affairs and will partner with our property manager to develop our robust housing system.

You will be a key member of the Student Experience team that provided support to students as they work through an innovative and engaging bachelor's degree program. The Student Experience (SE) team is comprised of five members dedicated to creating the best living and learning experience for Make School students. SE works collaboratively across the organization to develop programs that let students better understand who they are and how to be a leader in the software engineering field, and have a lot of fun while doing it.


We are looking for someone with the following (if you have most but not all of these, we still encourage you to apply):
* Experience work with college students, Residential Life Experience is a bonus
* Ability to respond to student issues in a calm, professional manner while maintaining privacy
* Bachelor's degree from a four-year college or university, Masters in Higher Education; Student Affairs, Counseling or related field (preferred)
* Creative problem solving and desire to innovate
* A passion for working with students in an non-traditional education setting
* Ability to develop and implement housing processes and systems

About Make School
Make School is building a new university in San Francisco. Our education combines liberal arts, computer science, software development, and character development with a strong emphasis on fully preparing students for successful careers as software engineers, product managers, or entrepreneurs. Our alumni work at Facebook, Google, Apple, Snap, LinkedIn, Lyft and more.

Our institution is accessible to students of all backgrounds, 40% are underrepresented minority students and 50% come from low income families. Students pay tuition as a percentage of earnings once they are employed, directly aligning their incentives with ours. Make School is funded by Learn Capital, Y Combinator, Mitch Kapor, Alexis Ohanian, Tim Draper and others.

We recently earned WASC accreditation for our Bachelor's degree in Applied Computer Science (in partnership with Dominican University of California). We offer the shortest bachelor's program in the country (2-2.5 years) and the first powered by Income Share Agreements (students don't pay until they are employed).
