Curriculum Designer

Cambly Inc San Francisco, CA
  • Expired: 28 days ago. Applications are no longer accepted.

Cambly is an online platform for students of all ages to learn English in 1-on-1 lessons with a tutor over video chat. Every day, students in over 200 countries log on to Cambly from their laptop, tablet, or smartphone to practice speaking English. Many of our students don’t have access to high-quality English education where they live and don’t have the means to travel abroad, but by joining Cambly they are able to immerse themselves in an English-language environment from the comfort of their own home. Whenever a student has spare time, they can open the app and connect with a tutor within seconds. Students can choose to work with their tutor through course materials developed by Cambly, or to simply practice their English conversation skills without following a lesson plan. Because Cambly lessons take place between one tutor and one student via video chat, our course materials are specially designed to take full advantage of this unique format.

We are currently hiring a Curriculum Designer to plan, manage, and execute the development of course materials for children and adult learners. Curriculum Designers work closely with our product and marketing teams to strategize and prioritize future course development based on student needs. The ideal candidate for this role is creative, analytical, great at project management, and able to collaborate with team members of diverse backgrounds and skill sets (both within team and cross functional). Above all, a Curriculum Designer must be a teacher at heart, having empathy for the language learning process and a passion to bring innovative, research-backed educational approaches to our students and tutors.
