"America is desperate for substitute teachers"
Historically, school districts have relied on retired teachers as their substitutes. A new solution is needed.
The substitute shortage is hurting learning outcomes and causing higher levels of burnout in existing staff.
HelloSubs: A powerful teacher staffing platform
|For schools||For teachers|
We provide the teachers and the software...
...while substitutes conveniently manage
jobs, schedule, payroll, and profile all in one place:
We support Public, Charter, and Independent Pre-K through 12 Schools
HelloSubs provides massive benefits to large districts employing thousands of teachers, along with small independent schools.
The majority of our initial clients have been large charter groups and independent schools across Denver, Austin, & Philadelphia. We're currently expanding in those markets as well as Houston, Colorado Springs, and Odessa/Midland.

Daily recurring revenue with high margins
Schools pay us per substitute, per day, worked at their school. This generates reliable, ongoing revenue along with a one-time fee when a school hires a sub as a permanent staff member.
Because of the automations built into our platform, we're able to generate $150K+/year gross profit per operational employee. This is on-par with top performing pure software companies.
One individual school generates an average of ~$50,000 gross revenue/year. Many school group/district contracts generate $1M+ annually with some as high as $8M.
We're able to maintain strong margins while still saving money for our schools, and paying market leading wages to our substitutes.
