Careers

Registry Consortium Coordinator

New World Now has been working in collaboration with a consortium of clients since 2007 on the development of online systems that provide Professional Development, Learning Management, and Quality Rating tools to the Early Childhood field.  There are currently 7 states and 1 county that contract with New World Now within this Registry Consortium.

New World Now consults with members of the Consortium, either individually or as a group to enhance the system and build new feature functionality, allowing us to address  the unique needs of each region while contributing to the greater good of the group as a whole.

In addition, the Consortium promotes peer to peer learning and facilitates ongoing communication among clients. This unique approach allows state and local leaders in early childhood systems building to discuss state and federal policy issues related to their work.

The Registry Consortium Coordinator is a new position that will serve as an integral part of the New World Now team as consortium membership grows and existing members expand the scope of their respective systems. The Coordinator will be responsible for the following areas of work:

  • Engage with relevant national organizations to stay informed  on policy issues and anticipate future reporting requirements and development
  • Bring consortium questions to the national registry alliance listserv and organize and distribute findings

Operations and Business Analysis

  • Consult with project managers to set priorities and ensure client satisfaction
  • Partner with project managers and developers to ensure high quality software design and system functionality
  • Identify development priorities based on client dictated timelines, state or regional policy changes, and requirements from funding agencies
  • Promote transparency in communication and project milestones to individual clients and across the Consortium
