      Director of Educational Content

       

      MindSnacks builds touch-based learning games for languages and other subjects. We take a unique, entertainment-focused approach to educational games; basically the opposite of the dull learning games we all know too well. We're funded by top-tier VCs and angel investors and are based in San Francisco.

      If you're deeply passionate about changing the way people learn and you thrive in a fast-paced, fun and sometimes slightly insane startup environment, this opportunity is for you. You'll be joining a small, awesome team, so expect to wear a few hats and be treated as a partner, not an employee.

      Your main responsibility will be leading the direction and creation of the educational content that powers our mobile applications. Your input will be vital and your work will have an immediate impact. You will have the ability to really own a particular area of the product suite and get in on the ground floor of a fun, rapidly growing, company.

      Responsibilities

      ·         Oversee all aspects of creating and curating the educational content that fuels our games

      ·         Brainstorm and implement improvements to the pedagogical approach used within our mobile applications

      ·         Engage top influencers in the educational community and author blog posts, articles, podcasts, videos, etc. to communicate our brand and authority

      ·         Assist with thought leadership, marketing, and a variety of other functions that will directly further the growth of our business

      Qualifications

      ·         Direct experience creating or supervising the creation of educational content (relevant experience with digital education products or learning games is a big plus)

      ·         Significant coursework or experience in linguistics and/or education

      ·         Passion for helping people learn, particularly in a fun, highly engaging way

      ·         Proficiency in multiple languages is a plus

      ·         Entrepreneurial spirit and ability to wear many different hats

      ·         Superior writing and communication skills; a desire to engage others
