  • Work with curriculum experts and standard setting bodies to align translated content to Brazilian curriculum standards
  • Develop replicable, scalable processes for scoping, creating, and improving several types of content (e.g., videos, articles, quizzes) across multiple content areas (math, science, humanities, etc.)
  • Ensure content is of high quality by assembling and working with an advisory board, tracking content performance, and modifying content based on quantitative data and qualitative feedback
  • Lead market research and usage analysis to help inform decisions about what content to produce

  • You’re a people person; you know how to collaborate across teams and organizations as well as manage and resolve conflict
  • You’re a problem solver by nature; you’re very comfortable gathering, analyzing, and drawing actionable, novel conclusions based on quantitative and qualitative data
  • You’re invigorated by the possibility of helping provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere
  • You have 7+ years of work experience in relevant fields including digital media, content creation, consumer internet, or education

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
