  • Collaborate with Growth to ensure continuous delivery of marketing materials for our blog, social media, email campaigns, merchandise and events.
  • Help the brand to evolve and consolidate through product, illustrations and video style guides.

  • Familiarity with agile development and lean start-up approaches.

Benefits

  • Competitive salary (40-55k), and equity and a substantial yearly salary review.

EDpuzzle is the easiest way for teachers to engage their students with videos. Over 7 million teachers and students around the world have already trusted us to help them in their classroom. 

We are a small team of very talented people distributed between San Francisco and Barcelona. We started over 3 years ago at ImagineK12, the first education incubator in the USA and now part of Y Combinator (where Airbnb and Dropbox were born). We are grateful for the support our teachers and investors give us every day. 



We empower teachers to make any video their lesson with a combination of our simple video-editing tools and powerful analytics about their students' progress. Teachers can turn any video into an engaging and effective lesson with just a few clicks and then always know which students understand that lesson, who needs help, if there are any misconceptions about the material, etc. thanks to our automatically gathered insights about their students. We work towards a day where every teacher and student will be just a click away from an excellent online education. Together we are building a pool of the best video lessons for the classroom.
