About ChalkTalk

At Chalktalk we believe that talent is universal but opportunity is not and that education is human. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are incredibly valuable and have done a lot to raise access to education, but nothing beats the experience of learning with your teacher and peers.

We are working to become the world’s most valuable learning technology company, powering human-led real-time learning for all students. Notable investors include: Deborah Quazzo, Managing Partner of GSV Ventures; TJ Mahoney, Partner at Accomplice VC and CEO/founder of Flipkey (acquired by TripAdvisor); and key operators from General Assembly.

We are looking for a leader to design the architecture required to 10x our user base and lead the team in executing on that plan. Among other things you will work on a marketplace for teachers to share materials with each other, the first-ever in class online synchronous group activity, a curriculum ingestion engine, and an adaptive learning algorithm based on state of the art skill measurement.
