The Role

In a nutshell, you'll be responsible for building interaction-first courses in math and science. We believe that interactive visualizations have the potential to change how people learn math and science. Building great interactive experiences requires working with course writers from conception to completion. This means we expect a broad skillset in this role: interactive design, programming, and communication skills are core parts of the job.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Working with course writers to develop prototypes that both fit the pedagogical needs and test our hypotheses on the role of interactive visualization in learning.
  • Assisting with the planning of the future of interactive visualizations wearing all hats – technical, pedagogical, and marketing.
  • Implementing interactive visualizations that run across all of the Brilliant platforms (web, mobile web, and native webviews).
  • Running experiments to guide the design of interactive visualizations at Brilliant.
The current tech stack is a mix of JavaScript (ES6), TypeScript, and Elm; expertise in all three is not a requirement.

Who are you?

The basics: you've been building interactive experiences for at least four years. Additionally, you've spent substantial time prototyping user facing features with little or no direction. You have strong opinions on the pedagogy of interactive education and are excited to put them to work with real users.

Going further, you've had to teach yourself at least one difficult topic, and you viscerally understand the difficulty of working with existing texts or online resources.

Finally, you're an excellent communicator with both engineers and and domain experts in unfamiliar areas – you're going to be helping to teach subjects that you sometimes don't understand, after all!
