We're pixel perfectionists and delight in clean design. We strive to provide every teacher and student a smoothly functioning and beautiful learning experience. In fact, we're even building a curriculum of design classes that teach design the way we would have wanted to learn. We're growing fast, and there's lots to be done - so you've got to be energized by the idea of achieving our ambitious goals together with your colleagues in Design, Engineering, Education, and Marketing.
You're a critical thinker with an innovative approach to making products simple enough for even your grandmother to understand and use. And you know those things to be true because you're a customer whisperer (ok, that sounds a bit creepy, but you're their advocate and interpreter).We're very goal and metric oriented and prefer to say 99% of ideas in favor of focusing and shipping things out the door. You'll work closely with our front-end engineers to create an interactive learning experience that's like nothing else out there. In fact, maybe you even prefer to mark up your own code.
