Khan Academy is a nonprofit organization on a mission to provide a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere. We already reach millions of students every month and are growing rapidly, and right now we’re hard at work helping learners address any unfinished learning that the COVID-19 pandemic may have caused. We also know that not all communities have been impacted equally by this pandemic, which makes our work focusing on providing equitable solutions to historically under-resourced communities even more important.


Our students, teachers, and parents come from all walks of life and so do we. We are fun, diverse, quirky people that come from a variety of backgrounds. Our team includes people from academia and from high tech companies and tiny startups. We hire great people from diverse backgrounds and experiences, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. Valuing diversity, equity and inclusion is necessary for us to actualize our mission and truly impact the communities we serve. We believe that the best way to provide impactful education is to create a diverse team of people from different backgrounds, races, religions, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and experiences. We’re a hardworking team that’s passionate about helping learners and teachers around the globe! We strive to be world class in investing in our people and commit to developing you as a professional.


We are looking for an experienced and versatile Math educator to serve as a Content Associate. By offering high-quality standards-aligned Math lessons for free, we hope to empower millions of students to take charge of their futures and improve their lives.

As a Content Associate, you’ll leverage your intuition for what matters to deliver high-quality learning content, robust coverage, and usage. You will scale math content to ensure our learners receive sufficient practice for skill mastery. You won’t be working in isolation; you’ll be working closely with other members of the content team.

Our content team includes content creators from around the world who make our videos, articles, and practice questions. Today, our courses include nearly every math topic from K-14, science and humanities content covering high school and early college, test prep for several national exams, and much more! In the years ahead, we want to double down on making our courses great in classrooms and help push online education to the next level.

Job Responsibilities

  • Work with the content team to expand our Math courses by leveraging market research, your subject matter expertise, and your intuition for learner needs
  • Create and curate high-quality content on schedule, designing and developing new standards-aligned exercises and articles, leveraging pre-existing resources from Khan Academy and third parties
  • Learn and use our content management system to improve existing courses and build new courses
  • Act as an editorial expert by reviewing new content, participating in the maintenance of existing content, and working with partners

  • Strong intuition for how students like to learn and insight into common misconceptions (minimum of 2 years of relevant teaching/tutoring experience)
  • Experience and aptitude working with multiple standards sets (e.g. NGSS, CCSS, State Standards) to ensure coverage and alignment during course development and curation
  • Desire to teach at scale, engage with a broad array of learners, and question your assumptions about what’s most important for learners
  • Desire to leverage online tools to publish quickly, gather user feedback, and iterate on content
  • Impeccable command of written communication; an energetic can-do attitude as a fluent and efficient content creator, a keen editorial eye for high-quality text in exercises and articles, and a knack for empowering, supportive peer review
  • Meticulous attention to detail and time management skills
  • Project management skills (e.g. fluent with Google docs and spreadsheets and other tools) and a willingness to learn new tools
  • A passion for education and a desire to change the world
