Join our team

We are a small team of researchers, designers, and educators—all committed to advancing the science and practice of character developement. Our work makes schools a better place for students to learn and flourish.

Excellence is a temporary achievement, not a status. We learn from our mistakes, depend on one another, leverage our diverse perspectives, take initiative, and give feedback early and often. Each day, we seek to exemplify the very character strengths that we promote.

Benefits and perks

All full-time positions offer competitive salaries and include full benefits with 100% employer-sponsored healthcare and 403(b) with employer match.


Character Lab has a "one-roof" policy, as we believe our best collaborations happen in one space together. Therefore, all positions are full-time in our Philadelphia office.

Reporting to the CEO (Angela Duckworth) and partnering very closely with another Fellow, the Administrative Fellow will provide direct administrative support to the Founder/CEO position as well as support the general operational needs of the organization. We are looking for someone to fill this role for 2 years, with the potential for a longer term role.
