Curriculum Designer

San Francisco, California, United States · Education expand job description ↓


About us

Front Row's mission is to ensure every child gets a world class education. Today, we reach 5 million students across 35% of American schools. We work with hundreds of thousands of teachers around the world to help them reach all students at their individual levels, ensuring every student can grow. We also help teachers engage their students with relevant, interesting, and effective curriculum.

Teachers continue to face the same problem they have for a century: each of the 30+ students in a class has varying abilities, making it very difficult for one teacher to effectively reach them all. This is the problem Front Row solves: we build software and curriculum to make it easy for teachers to reach every student at his or her level without spending countless hours writing curriculum or grading. In a Front Row classroom, teachers focus on helping individual students and small groups learn vital material instead of spending their time making and grading worksheets.

Front Row is a Series A funded team of 34, and is well on its way to profitability.

The Role

We're looking to have a full-time curriculum designer join our team! Curriculum designers work on various parts of the program, including:

  • Writing new math questions for the content database, along with improving old questions
  • Designing project-based math lessons
  • Creating performance tasks and assessments
  • Writing high-interest English Language Arts articles with leveled comprehension questions and writing prompts
  • Developing creative Social Studies/Science units and activities
  • Working with other members of the curriculum team to discover, build, and implement new features and improvements to our program
  • Collaborating with engineers to make improvements to the student & teacher sides of the program

You’ll join an effective team that plans, executes, and reflects together. Since we’re a small team, everything you create will go into production and be used by students, teachers, parents, and school personnel. You will never do unimportant work: every contribution will make a clear and tangible impact on the company’s trajectory. Your personal success will be directly aligned with that of the company.

Most importantly, your work will have purpose: Front Row is a mission-driven company that takes pride in making a significant impact in the lives of millions of students.
