Part-time Physics or Math problem developer at Brilliant Scholars

Two positions, one in Physics, one in Math:
You are a detail-oriented person who is swift to break down complex problems into their constituent parts. You can go rapidly from solution sketch to fully-worked solution, communicating clear reasoning at each step. You take pride in your work. You are comfortable taking guiding principles and figuring things out on your own, and have the self-confidence to work in a quick and opinionated environment.

The job
We’re looking for people who want to, for a minimum of 10 hours each week:
  • Create strategies for structuring a challenging physics problem solving curriculum in an online interface
  • Build a bank of challenging and entertaining physics problems suitable for high school students
  • Write up solutions and proofread solutions written by others on your team
  • Hone your already considerable problem solving skills to a surreal deadliness
  • Earn $50 an hour ($25 for undergraduates), with flexible work hours and the ability to work remotely if desired. Full-time positions with benefits are also available.
To apply:Email Include any resumes, links, or other information that can help us get a more complete picture of you.
Brilliant is building a high-quality online problem solving program in math and science for gifted youth around the world. We believe that having access to an intellectually challenging environment allows students to engage with the world in a more thoughtful way than they would otherwise, and are frustrated that such opportunities are not available to more students outside of privileged settings. Brilliant aims to democratize how smart, driven students are identified and developed. You can read more about our investors and our company in this recent BusinessWeek article:
