OUR MARKET POSITION
Great Minds’ Eureka Math is the most widely used curriculum in the history of American education. It enjoys an unrivaled 40+ net promoter score. Eureka and its sister products, Wit & Wisdom English and PhD Science, embrace much higher expectations for all students and all teachers. In a market dominated by scripted, procedural materials that drive expectations down, Great Minds produces curricula that celebrate knowledge, respect the craft of teaching, and acknowledge the true capabilities of students.
Remote. Some travel may be required. Approximately 5-8 hours weekly required for virtual meetings during business hours Monday - Friday, 9am-6pm EST.
Great Minds, a rapidly growing organization that develops world-class curricula for grades PK-12, seeks full-time curriculum developers. We are looking for experienced teachers, writers, and educators who are excited to help expand Great Minds’ English curriculum, Wit & Wisdom®, at the high school level. Curriculum Developers will work as part of a grade-level team to research, draft, and revise content to be used in high school classrooms. The ideal candidate possesses high school English content and pedagogical expertise, an understanding of intellectual rigor, passion for high-quality curriculum, attention to detail, and the belief that every child is capable of greatness.
Reporting directly to the Managing Editor, the Curriculum Developer will be responsible for collaborating with both a smaller grade-level team (based on project needs and individual expertise) and a larger humanities curricular team to craft new curricular materials. While the work is remote and the ideal candidate will work well independently, this will also be a highly collaborative project, necessitating a strong sense of teamwork and cooperation. This is an exceptional opportunity for a smart, dedicated, and passionate individual to apply their skills to support the growth and mission of Great Minds.
Major Duties and Responsibilities
The Curriculum Developer duties and responsibilities include, but are not limited to the following:
· Follow the product life cycle for the project, completing the appropriate scope and sequence of work within the timeline required at each phase
· Collaborate effectively with other Curriculum Developers within and across grade-level teams on instructional decision making
