About Us:

Right now, even though STEM skills are increasingly important, over 60% of students in Kindergarten through 8th grade are not proficient in math at their own grade-level. The pandemic has increased the opportunity gap for our most vulnerable students. As a society, we need to bring together our best, most creative minds to tackle this critical problem and ensure all kids are successful in math and school and have the tools they need to reach their potential. This includes developing the most innovative learning technology using advanced data science in a way that inspires students and empowers teachers. Come help us make a difference at DreamBox Learning.

We're passionate about our mission to radically transform the way the world learns. Today, our Intelligent Adaptive Learning platform - with its rigorous math curriculum and game-based environment - is helping 5 million kids and over 150,000 educators improve math achievement and build a love of math at the same time. In the wake of COVID-19, and the broad range of learning experiences: in-person, all virtual and hybrid models, we are uniquely positioned to bring our best-in-class adaptive learning platform to more students and provide Educators and Parents with insights into their student's learning.

About the Role:

This person must have a strong foundation in agile methodology to coach teams and is passionate about developing cohesive scrum teams who are able to deliver against tough timelines

This is a unique opportunity to be a part of a small, high energy, rapidly growing company at an exciting time in the development of EdTech. Check us out at and see what our students and educators think on twitter.

  • Manage external team dependencies and facilitate/participate in cross-team activities.
