As content writer (m/f), you will play an essential role in the creation of engaging Math tutorials produced with state-of-the-art digital technology. Each video is accompanied by a set of practice problems and we are looking for content creators in both areas.

Working both independently and collaboratively, you will develop exciting educational material while engaging in an open, ongoing dialogue with our in-house editorial team. These responsibilities will be completed via our user-friendly online interface, Google Docs, email, and video conference.

A good understanding of learning needs/preferences of math students.
In addition to these qualifications, you need the following:

Our promise

This is a part-time freelance contract with no need for relocation. When you join our team, your work will begin with a brief training course. You will learn about our production process and how to develop a storyboard with voiceover, and/or get an introduction to our practice problems from our team of experts. You will also be able to share your ideas and collaborate with our international network of math teachers.
Your working hours will be flexible, dependending on the pace of our production process. Most of the work will be asynchronous, but some scheduled online meetings will be required at specific times. Individual contract and compensation based on experience.
