About UP Education Network
UP Education Network manages and operates five schools in Boston and Lawrence, MA. We serve over 2,500 elementary and middle school students. UP is invited by local school districts to restart chronically underperforming district schools as UP Academies. Each UP Academy shares the same mission: to ensure that students acquire the knowledge, skills, and strength of character necessary to succeed on the path to college and to achieve their full potential.
The Summer Technology Fellow will work with the Technology Team to get the technology set up at the five UP Academy schools for the start of the school year. S/he will report to the Senior Manager of Technology and will be a member of the organization’s Operations Department. The ideal candidate will be comfortable working in a customer service-oriented environment and willing to learn new hardware and software-based skills.

We encourage applicants of diverse backgrounds to apply for any open position in which they feel qualified. We believe that we have a responsibility to recruit, retain, develop, and reward a diverse and talented staff. Our students must be exposed on a daily basis to a diverse group of powerful role models – in their teachers, their school leaders, and their supporters in the network office. With this in mind, we are committed to recruiting the most talented individuals from the widest possible range of backgrounds to join our creative, mission-driven team.
