Search for the Chief Information Officer

KIPP Foundation

New York, NY




The KIPP Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports KIPP Public Schools’ national network of public charter schools, seeks a Chief Information Officer (CIO) to drive the organization’s technology, infrastructure, and data strategies across the KIPP network. The CIO will be a strategic and transformational leader who will provide direction for the data systems and technology operations and ensure organization-wide effective use of data and high-quality technology solutions to advance KIPP’s commitment to dismantling inequalities and fostering a culture of inclusion across the organization.


The nonprofit KIPP Foundation trains and develops outstanding educators to lead KIPP schools; provides tools, resources, and training for excellent teaching and learning; promotes innovation; and facilitates the exchange of insights and ideas both within the KIPP network and with partners including other public schools, nonprofit organizations, and institutions of higher learning. In doing this work, the KIPP Foundation supports the KIPP network of 275 public charter schools with 16,500 educators and 175,000 students and alumni across the United States.


The Chief Information Officer will directly report to the Chief Operations Officer and will be a key partner to the senior leadership team, the Board of Directors, and KIPP Regional Leaders, providing leadership and strategy for the organization’s technology, infrastructure, and data strategies to support the mission of delivering exceptional education to every student they serve. The CIO will lead the implementation of a multi-year data strategy, manage IT and data teams, and provide strategic leadership to ensure the organization's people, processes, and technologies support the execution of One KIPP priorities.


The ideal candidate will bring a record of accomplishment and experience in leading and aligning technology and data teams and systems across a complex organization while managing significant change toward successful outcomes and maintaining a strong focus on team culture. Given KIPP’s deep commitment to racial justice and equity, the CIO must be a champion of these values, intentionally operationalizing policies, practices, and systems that foster equity and inclusion across KIPP’s complex, distributed organizational structure.


This role is fully remote, with a slight preference for the candidate to be within commuting distance of KIPP’s offices in New York City or Chicago.
