Job Description:

Right now, even though STEM skills are increasingly important, over 60% of students in Kindergarten through 8th grade are not proficient in math at their own grade-level. The pandemic has increased the opportunity gap for our most vulnerable students. As a society, we need to bring together our best, most creative minds to tackle this critical problem and ensure all kids are successful in math and school and have the tools they need to reach their potential. This includes developing the most innovative learning technology using advanced data science in a way that inspires students and empowers teachers. Come help us make a difference at DreamBox Learning. We're passionate about our mission to radically transform the way the world learns. Today, our Intelligent Adaptive Learning platform - with its rigorous math curriculum and game-based environment - is helping 5 million kids and over 150,000 educators improve math achievement and build a love of math at the same time. In the wake of COVID-19, and the broad range of learning experiences: in-person, all virtual and hybrid models, we are uniquely positioned to bring our best-in-class adaptive learning platform to more students and provide Educators and Parents with insights into their student's learning.

You will be building, organizing and leading teams of engineers designing and building components to provide a rich and engaging experience for students to explore and master mathematical concepts, and educators to understand where the students are in their learning path. We are seeking someone with a passion for learning, not afraid of challenges, and a knack for solving hard problems, who aspires to be a thought leader amongst their peers. We are changing the lives of students, teachers, and families with our software, and you will play a critical role in expanding and supporting the content and platform that are at the heart of our product offering.
