Position Description:    

Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) develops educational opportunities for many of the most eager math and science students in the world. We have trained tens of thousands of the country’s top students in the last 15 years.


Our elementary curriculum, Beast Academy, is built around a world of four little monsters who are learning to tackle tough math concepts and problems. Our curriculum includes comic-style Guide books, Practice books, and an online platform (BA Online) for grades 2-5. The program has sold over 300,000 books, and the recently launched online program has over 8,000 active subscriptions.


The initial launch of BA Online was primarily intended for family use. We seek a math educator to join our team who will help us build the tools and materials needed to make BA Online valuable for use in schools, learning centers, and other group settings.


You might be a good fit for this position if you want to inspire young students and their teachers to engage in rich and challenging mathematical problem solving. You’ve read about our Beast Academy Online program and understand the important role elementary math plays in a student’s future. Your experience in education includes work with advanced learners and collaboration with a wide range of school administrators and specialists. You’re excited about developing materials and tools that will help elementary teachers improve their understanding of mathematics and use Beast Academy effectively in the classroom.


In this position, you will collaborate with the rest of our team to:

  • Write print and online materials that make Beast Academy easy to use by teachers who have limited backgrounds in mathematics. 
  • Help design and build the tools needed to make BA Online work well for students with a broad range of abilities. 
  • Help create new content and features that allow for independent use of Beast Academy by motivated students. 


To apply, send your cover letter and resume to jobs@artofproblemsolving.com. Please also include a sample of a teacher resource you’ve created. This is a full-time position at our headquarters in San Diego, CA.
