Help millions of students develop a love for words. As a curriculum content manager you'll develop interactive and engaging content that instructs and challenges students of all abilities to develop a robust and durable vocabulary. You'll marshal your teaching expertise, writing skills, creativity, and quirky humor to craft content that will captivate even the most reluctant learner. You will also manage a pool of exceptional content writers and get the best out of them!


  • Design engaging, humorous, and interactive questions that help students master word nuance. Grow the question bank.
  • Work with the engineering team to help devise algorithms to machine-generate questions and content.
  • Help create formative and summative assessments that can be personalized to each student.
  • Act as a liaison and project manager to other writers.
  • Research state and national standards and align content.
  • Answer occasional student or teacher emails and work with the team to reduce teacher pain points.

Skills and Experience:

  • You love words and are intimately familiar with them.
  • You have at least 3 years of teaching or tutoring experience. Ideally, as part of your teaching you've created vocabulary, grammar, or writing curricula (please provide samples or links).
  • You have at least 2 years of experience managing a team.
  • You have a Master's or Ph.D. in Education, English, Linguistics, Instruction Design, Cognitive Psychology, or a related field.
  • You are detail-oriented, highly motivated, and have a strong passion to create thoughtful evidence-based learning experiences.
  • Working at a small startup with little supervision is exactly your cup of tea.
  • You are very comfortable with technology.
  • You have strong analytical skills – consuming an academic text or paper doesn't faze you.
  • You are based in Portland, Oregon, or willing to relocate. Remote full-time work will be considered for exceptional candidates.
