Job Description

About Brilliant

Brilliant is making a world of great problem solvers. We focus on adults learning quantitative skills – especially in math, data, and CS/AI – and deliver a best-in-class interactive learning experience across web and apps. Our courses teach you what you need to know, while skipping the stuff you don’t – so expect more about solving equations, statistical analysis, logical deduction, neural networks, and generative AI, and less about abstract theorems and integrating complicated trig functions. 

We serve hundreds of thousands of paid subscribers, and we’re hoping you might be the right person to contribute to accelerating our footprint to millions of customers (and changed lives). In addition to what’s below, you can see all open roles and learn more about our team culture on our careers page.

We have always prioritized building a healthy business as the backbone of achieving our mission. We are default alive (will be profitable before needing to raise), have never had layoffs, are growing new customers at an exciting pace (high double-digits year-over-year). Our investors are top-tier + mission aligned, and we’ve kept our valuations tethered to reality – we aren’t playing “catch up” like many others.

In our day-to-day, we value adventure, excellence, generosity, and candor. We are optimists in the face of uncertainty, we take pride in our work, we go the extra mile for each other, and we tell it like it is (the good and the bad). We’re all here to do the best work of our lives together, and have a lot of fun along the way. 

We believe that real-time collaboration and human connection are necessary ingredients in building a high-velocity, creatively-oriented consumer product. We maintain core hours (10am – 3pm Pacific) where everyone is online, regardless of timezone. Over half of us are located near our hubs in SF and NYC, and folks outside of those cities travel to attend team offsites once-per-quarter.

The Role

Brilliant is seeking a Producer to lead the development of new interactive courses on foundational computer science, programming, and consumer technology using our interactive learning platform. We also encourage applicants with a strong background in data science or mathematics education who have an interest in working on these subjects to apply.

You will use your exceptional taste in technology education and pedagogical instincts to expand Brilliant’s library of interactive courses. You will manage the development of courses and collaborate with a talented team of artists, designers, and interactive engineers to build the best way to learn foundational computer science, programming, and consumer technology for adult learners starting from scratch. You will be joining a passionate and experienced team of entrepreneurial-minded people who are working to change the way STEM is taught and make a meaningful impact on the world. Come build the future of interactive learning with us!

Responsibilities

  • Lead the conception and outlining of new courses in programming and applications in data, automation, and consumer technology with a focus on lowering the barrier to entry
  • Design curricula covering both practical and theoretical topics, meeting the distinct needs of adults looking to learn computer science, looking to learn to program, and looking to understand the basics behind rapidly evolving fields in technology like AI
  • Write clear and engaging content while developing a voice that empowers learners and distills complex topics down to their essential components
  • Build immersive and interactive learning experiences using a rich learning platform combining visual storytelling, interactive elements, and guided problem solving
  • Manage content development including coordination with stakeholders and collaborators across marketing, design, and engineering
  • Conduct user research to make informed decisions about how to improve and prioritize our content offerings

You

  • Are excited to build a practical and fun learning experience for millions of people
  • Have a strong foundation in computer science, programming, or AI
  • Have proficiency in multiple programming languages and paradigms (and you’re excited to learn more)
  • Have a way with words, especially when communicating challenging concepts, and your writing skills (in English) are top notch
  • Are great at context switching and prioritizing among a large workload
  • Have an openness to change and a willingness to experiment with formats and platforms
  • Are not afraid to jump into any aspect of a project to fill a vacuum, no matter how big or small
  • Have spent substantial time building or prototyping online learning experiences while using interaction and motivation to engage and challenge learners asynchronously

$105,000 – $160,000 a year

Compensation and Benefits

We use a systematic compensation framework: salary scales are set each year for each job vertical, managers level folks on their team, and those levels are mapped directly to our compensation scales. A location-based adjustment is applied outside of SF and NYC (typically 5-10%) – feel free to ask us about your location!

Given the systematic approach, we always make First and Best offers – there is no negotiation (for new hires nor our existing teammates). This ensures people are paid based on their expected contribution, not their negotiation skills.

We offer top-notch health care plans, with 100% of the premiums covered for medical, dental, and vision for employees. About 1/3 of our team are parents, and we provide generous parental leave + up to $1900/mo in dependent healthcare coverage.

We offer flexible PTO, with a norm of taking off about 6 weeks per year (including federal holidays). We also provide home office equipment, a professional development stipend, and free food at our offices.
