Overview

Description
Edpuzzle is a video-learning platform used by over 80% of schools in the United States, and thousands more around the world. We make it easy for teachers to engage their students with interactive video lessons. 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 video lessons to help their students master important content.

The Role

We are looking for an experienced copywriter and/or editor to join our curriculum team. The ideal candidate will be experienced with writing or media (especially for children), with teaching experience being an added bonus. You will be responsible for editing video scripts and developing writing guidelines for curriculum designers in multiple subject areas (ELA, math, social studies, and science).

Specifically your responsibilities will include:

Script Editing: Work closely with lesson writers as a developmental editor, reviewing script outlines and drafts to make recommendations on structure, style, tone, and clarity. Help distill complex concepts using straightforward, accessible language. Edit and improve all of the scripts we produce to ensure they meet quality expectations.
Developing Brand Voice: Develop writing guidelines that ensure all of our scripts have a consistent style and tone that will connect with teachers and students.
Scaling: Help to scale curriculum production by identifying inefficiencies in the processes for script writing and editing. Develop guidelines for our curriculum designers to improve their writing, decrease their need for editing, and allow them to sustainably increase the volume of scripts they produce.

Requirements
Demonstrated expertise with short-form writing and editing, with an emphasis on children’s media
Excellent copyediting, proofreading, and organizational skills
Strong storytelling skills, particularly for nonfiction educational topics
Attention to detail, with a keen editorial eye for catching errors and for improving the organization and clarity of scripted content

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.
