Created: August 8, 2013


Our mission: Power the world's largest education brands

As publishers move from dead tree books to engaging online content powered by our platform, they can't start over from zero with their content. We are often called on to help them get the important stuff moved from wherever it is now, into our system.

About you:
  • Able to programmatically extract content from a variety of file formats and shape it into something structured using Perl, Python, Ruby, or similar
  • Able to communicate with the tech leads who build our asset system and vendors who do manual work to bridge the gaps that can't be automated
  • Able to generate thousands of dynamic activities out of flat content
  • Willing to commit to 20 or more hours per week (up to full time if you wish) for at least 4 weeks, with opportunity to continue if desired
Willing to pay market rates, so both junior and experienced candidates are encouraged to reply.

This position requires being onsite at our office near the Verizon Center for at least some time during the initial 4 week period, with the potential to transition to a greater proportion of remote work in the future.

Please respond via email with a billing rate and a short summary of your qualifications.
