Overview

Description
Edpuzzle is one of the fastest-growing companies in educational technology, trusted by over 80% of schools in the USA. Our goal is to bring every teacher and student just a click away from an excellent online education. By creating an extensive library of interactive video lessons, we are on our way to becoming a “one-stop-shop” where teachers can find reliable, standards-aligned videos to help their students master important social studies content.

We are looking for a curriculum designer to join our social studies curriculum team. You will develop short-form video lessons that captivate, inform and educate students.

Curriculum Planning: Build clear, standards-aligned unit plans. Develop instructional models for videos that maximize utility for teachers and pedagogical effectiveness for students. Research and validate these approaches with teachers and students.
Script Writing: Develop compelling scripts for short-form video lessons that teachers and students love. Search out the most engaging and interesting phenomena, artifacts, and stories that will “hook” students. Turn feedback from supervisors, editors, and peers into even better work.
Video Production: Work closely with members of the video production team to provide direction and feedback on storyboarding, image pulling, illustrations, and animations. Meet weekly with the entire video team, project manager, and curriculum director.
Scaling: Develop production processes and criteria that clearly articulate what an amazing video lesson looks and sounds like and how to build it. Over time, use this to onboard, train, and manage lesson writers to scale curriculum production.
User Research: Connect with teachers who use our curriculum videos. Solicit and incorporate their feedback to improve classroom experiences for teachers and students. Determine teachers’ and students’ needs.
Perform other duties as assigned.

About Edpuzzle

Who we are

Do you love learning? Does the idea of working for an EdTech company that was born in Silicon Valley and has offices in Barcelona and San Francisco excite you? Then Edpuzzle might just be your perfect fit.

 

Used in over 80% of schools in the USA, Edpuzzle makes it easy for teachers to engage their students with interactive video lessons.

We’re a small team of talented creatives (many of us former teachers) who got our start back in 2013 at ImagineK12, the first education incubator in the USA and now part of Y Combinator, where Airbnb and Dropbox were born. We have fantastic support from our teachers and investors, who allow us to continue growing our Edpuzzle community every day.

What we do

We empower teachers to make any video their lesson with our easy-to-use video editing tools and beautiful, hassle-free analytics showing students’ results. In just a few clicks, teachers can turn any video into an engaging and effective lesson, and then see in real time which students understood the lesson and who needs help, thanks to the insightful student data Edpuzzle gathers.

Why we do it

We dream of a day where every teacher and student will be just a click away from an excellent online education, and we’re working to turn it into a reality. Together with the teachers in our Edpuzzle community, we’re creating a pool of incredible quality, inspiring video lessons for the classroom.
