Assistant Marketing Manager

Job description

Great Minds, a rapidly growing DC-based organization developing world-class curricula for Grades PK–12, is seeking an Assistant Marketing Manager to join our mission-driven team of professionals. 


Company Profile

At Great Minds, we believe every child is capable of greatness. Our mission is to ensure all students have access to a quality education in the full range of the liberal arts and sciences.


In 2010, Great Minds published the Common Core Curriculum Maps for English Language Arts. This success was followed by being awarded three contracts to develop a PK–12 math curriculum for the New York State Education Department. Great Minds owns this curriculum, which is now widely used throughout the United States and known as Eureka Math.    


The Great Minds business model has moved from grant and contract solicitation to direct revenue generation over the last three years. This model shift has produced consistent 20+% revenue growth year over year, in large part due to the success of Eureka Math. Great Minds’ recent release of Wit & Wisdom, their K–8 ELA curriculum, has already gained early adoption in the marketplace. With the imminent publication of core curricula in additional subjects, the company’s business model continues to evolve to sustain its steady and rapid growth. 


Great Minds presently employs more than 250 people.
