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 content videos to help their students master important science content.

The Role

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

Your responsibilities will include:

Video Script Writing: Develop compelling scripts for short, 5-7 minute video lessons that teachers and students love. Search out the most engaging and interesting phenomena, artifacts, and stories that will “hook” students. Explain concepts clearly using age-appropriate language and examples. Turn feedback from supervisors, editors, and peers into even better work.

Curriculum Planning: Interpret science standards documents and craft lesson objectives to ensure comprehensive coverage. Develop instructional models for videos that maximize utility for teachers and pedagogical effectiveness for students.
Feedback on Video Design: Work closely with members of the video production team to provide direction and feedback on storyboarding, image pulling, illustrations, and animations.

Scaling: Develop efficient processes and define criteria to help scale production of high-quality video lessons.
User Research: Determine teachers’ and students’ needs by talking directly to users. Solicit and incorporate their feedback to improve classroom experiences.

About You
You are a talented short-form writer who is passionate about video learning for children. You have a solid grasp of foundational science content and love sharing your understanding with others. You may come from a professional background as a science teacher, children’s book author, science journalist, or creator of educational YouTube videos. Most importantly, you’re able to use storytelling to engage young learners and provide explanations that foster children’s curiosity and wonder at the world around them.

Requirements
2+ years of K-12 science teaching experience, with a preference for teachers who have taught in grades 3-8.
Strong writing skills, and a knack for distilling complex concepts into simple, kid-friendly explanations.
Experience with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Prompt, organized, and excel at communicating clearly.

Hiring for remote work in these states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia & Washington.

Benefits

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.
