WORKING AT GREAT MINDS

At Great Minds we believe that every child is capable of greatness. When you join the team, you will be part of a rapidly growing, mission-driven organization. This mission to improve education for America's schoolchildren is what inspires us each day.

Great Minds

Every Child is Capable of Greatness

A group of education leaders founded the non-profit Great Minds in 2007 to define and encourage content-rich comprehensive education for all American schoolchildren. In pursuit of that mission, Great Minds brings schoolteachers together in collaboration with scholars to craft exemplary instructional materials and share them with the field. Great Minds’ Eureka Math curriculum has won accolades at the state and national levels, and is the only comprehensive math curriculum aligned to the Common Core State Standards at every grade. The non-profit also created Wit & Wisdom, a new English curriculum that taps the power of literature, history, and science to meet the expectations of the new standards.

While Great Minds is headquartered in Washington D. C. in a building atop the Navy Yard-Ballpark Metro stop, many positions allow employees to work remotely. This allows Great Minds to assemble the best-of-the-best to work together virtually in pursuit of our mission. (Currently, employees work from 35 states.)
