ABOUT KHAN ACADEMY

Khan Academy is a fast-paced, nonprofit startup on a mission to provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. We already reach millions of students every month and are growing rapidly. We’re building a library of world-class instructional and practice resources that empower learners. Whether they’re studying matrices, mitosis, or multivariable calculus, we want to offer students the resources to realize they can learn anything. 

ABOUT KHAN ACADEMY INDIA

Khan Academy India aims to deliver a world-class user experience to learners in India that is locally relevant and is enabled by a strong on-the-ground team and operations. Our learning system is mastery based, which allows students to master key concepts at a pace that’s right for them before moving on to more challenging content. From serving under 500,000 learners in 2016, we are now serving almost 4 million learners a month across our websites, apps and YouTube channels. These learners include both independent learners accessing us at home and teacher directed learners in schools.  Our focus is to reach the underserved by making our content accessible in local languages and by working with large public school systems. Khan Academy is already available in Assamese, Hindi, Hinglish, Kannada, Gujarati, Tamil, Marathi, and Punjabi (with plans to launch in Odia soon)..

ABOUT THE INDIA CONTENT TEAM

Our content team in India includes content creators and localization experts who make our videos, articles, and practice questions to help teachers and students. Today, our team is focused on high school and middle school math and science. In the years ahead, we want to continue building out math and science across grades and locales.

ABOUT THE ROLE

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, dynamic leader to propel our short- and long-term strategic vision of Khan India’s math and science offerings. Then, we translate that vision into concrete definitions of content success, precise project plans, and efficient processes. In this role, you’ll also be a people manager responsible for coaching and developing our team of math and science content creators and language experts (currently 15 people) to support them in doing their best work. This senior role will be a part of the India Leadership Team. 

Content is integral to Khan Academy’s overall product, so this role necessitates a highly collaborative and cross-functional mindset. You’ll co-create the math and science offerings in collaboration with our state, philanthropy and data teams while also keeping the Govt school administration, teachers and principals’ needs in mind. And because we partner with several schools, you’ll need to be relationship-driven and comfortable representing Khan Academy India’s offering to external audiences.
