COMPANY PROFILE

OUR MARKET POSITION

Great Minds’ Eureka Math is the most widely used curriculum in the history of American education. It enjoys an unrivaled 40+ net promoter score. Eureka and its sister products, Wit & Wisdom English and PhD Science, embrace much higher expectations for all students and all teachers. In a market dominated by scripted, procedural materials that drive expectations down, Great Minds produces curricula that celebrate knowledge, respect the craft of teaching, and acknowledge the true capabilities of students.

Position Summary

The Project Coordinator supports members of the program management team responsible for ensuring that Humanities projects are planned, scheduled, and executed on time and within budget. This role will work with multiple functional teams that are responsible for the production and delivery of Great Minds Humanities curricular materials (Wit & Wisdom, Geodes, Great Minds History). This position is an exceptional opportunity for a highly organized and detail-oriented individual who possesses a commitment to Great Minds’ organizational vision and who is interested in growing their project management skills. While the work is remote and the ideal candidate will work well independently, this will also be a highly collaborative position, necessitating a strong sense of teamwork and cooperation.
