Tech Lead- React Native
101 · New York, NY
The traditional college model of learning hasn’t fundamentally changed in centuries. We’ve seen technology touch every aspect of our lives and yet today’s students are still handed static textbooks and passively listen to professors lecture as they did in the middle ages.
101edu transforms higher education with our active learning platform for STEM courses. We focus on elegant, discipline-specific interactive assessment tools that triumph over traditional and generic multiple choice systems (and we’ve got the data to back it up!). Our first product for college chemistry, Chem101, has been quickly adopted at over 400 higher ed institutions and we’re just getting started. Check out some of our innovative tools here: www.101edu.co.
We’re a VC backed team of scientists, engineers, and educators who are redefining the way students learn and interact with their subject-matter. Own the frontend codebase and work directly with our CTO as we build new products for multiple STEM subjects. You’ll be scaling our flagship mobile and web apps as we grow to millions of learners. Join us in the heart of NYC and change the college STEM learning experience forever!
