Mathematics Content Manager

Ellevation Education - Boston, Massachusetts - Full time

Ellevation is growing, and we’re looking for a Mathematics Content Manager to join our Education team! Bringing your deep knowledge of - and passion for - mathematics content, you'll be responsible for the development, rollout, and advocacy of a critical new direction for our product. You will help us learn, define, and deliver. And most importantly, you will help Ellevation make a direct impact on how language learners succeed in math classrooms around the world. 


A little bit about you:

  • Proven success in developing high-quality middle school and high school math resources (digital, print, assessment items, and more!), aligned to national content standards.
  • You’re excited to use and share your knowledge of language development standards and best practices in creating content accessible to ELs of varied language proficiency levels.
  • You’re a strong writer for adolescent audiences, language learners, and adults.
  • Your ability to succeed in an agile startup environment allows you to plan, monitor, and adjust schedules and workflows to ensure high-quality content is produced as effectively and efficiently as possible.
  • You can oversee content authors and vendors, but relish the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and author math lessons yourself.
  • As a strategic communicator, you’re able to collaborate internally with others and create documentation in a way that ensures vendors are meeting high quality and consistency goals set for the product.


In this role, you will:

  • Develop original mathematics instructional materials for secondary students, with a focus on accessible - yet rigorous - design for English language learner audiences.
  • Source, oversee, and integrate vendor work including art, audio, animation, and editorial review. Manage timelines, budgets, and workflows. Identify freelancers, vendors, and other contributors needed for executing larger production efforts.
  • Independently author formative assessment items and instructional content evaluating the comprehension of math concepts and language comprehension.
  • Ensure the accuracy, quality, and consistency of all math instructional resources.
  • Ensure content standards are addressed and aligned-to, including CCSS, TEKS, and other state-specific applications.
  • Ensure instructional materials offer numerous opportunities for ELL audiences to access, comprehend, and produce language.


Collaboration and Contribution:

  • Collaborate with Product and other Ellevation team members on content/product integration efforts and educator resources and tools.
  • Coordinate with revenue and field implementation teams to provide guidance, answer customer questions, and gather insights to inform product and content development.
  • Collaborate with Education Solutions colleagues working on content for Strategies and other related Ellevation products to ensure a cohesive and effective connection across the portfolio.


Location and Travel: Boston preferred, but open to any location with access to an airport. Occasional travel for customer feedback and piloting (10%).
