This person would also help maintain a friendly and stimulating community on Brilliant, by interacting with moderators, participating in solution discussions, and providing feedback on member-contributed problems and wikis.

Your work will impact a community of 1.4 million members that is growing rapidly.

To those who are amiable and talented, Brilliant.org offers:

Relocation to San Francisco is preferable, although we can be flexible with regard to location on a case-by-case basis. Positions are available for each subject on Brilliant. We are accepting resumes and an informal paragraph or two to introduce yourself at jobs@brilliant.org.

Please pass this along to colleagues you believe would find this opportunity exciting.

As Brilliant has become a part of my life, I would love to work for Brilliant, if I get such an opportunity. Thanks a lot !

That is an excellent opportunity. Could be my dream job if I were at San Francisco and old enough.

• What educational qualifications must the applicant have?
• Is there a pre-concieved 'minimum age' for this?
• Does the Cirriculum Developer get an @brilliant.org email?

Staff - 3 years, 5 months ago

You don't even need to ask !!

Just imagine that you get to solve questions on B'ant everyday and get to improve the conditions here and the best part of it ? You'll even be paid for it !

Now that's what I call paradise on Earth !

The friendliest person on B'ant is undoubtedly @Brian Charlesworth sir . He never refuses/ignores requests seeking help , directed towards him .

Brian sir , I know that you don't want to teach , but this job doesn't require you to teach .Just go over this ....

@Sandeep Bhardwaj ..... Best choice

I am not sure I can work from San-Francisco, but I would like to work from home. I am pretty comfortable with many areas of Mathematics and Physics.

What is the Salary you offer for a Curriculum Developer ?

Do let me know

Thank you Vijay

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Is there any age limit ??

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Fifty years ago I would have very interested in the job you describe however your timing is just a little off! You see I am 73 years old and to be quite frank I don't feel that I am physically able to take you up on the offer. Otherwise I would love to work for you. I love math and science and I have a great page on Facebook that is dedicated to solving problems from Brilliant.com. ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/315956575254641/). The page has not been as successful I have wanted it to be but it's lot of fun. I volunteer at a local High school tutoring math and chemistry. Love the kids and it's very rewarding.

What is the minimum age and educational qualifications required??

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Ms. Khim,

I thank you for the offer and for including me in the search. I am very interested in the position you described. Math is not only a passion for me but a complete hobby. Fun, interesting, and enjoyable problems are what I look forward to every time I glance at my phone or sign in to the site. To know that I would be bringing the same enjoyment and problem solving to other people would be both honorable and prideful. I look forward to any further information that you could pass on. Thank you for your time.

Hey, I am Pretty new here, but in few days I have liked the whole concept of the website. Physics is my passion!! I started my carrier as a Software engineer but voluntary quit the job to follow my passion of teaching physics. Now, I am a senior professor of Physics in the field of IIT JEE for the past six years and has worked with many big brands of India namely Aakash Institute, FIITJEE and Narayana IIT-PMT Academy. I also has a good collection of self made and challenging problems. I also run a page on facebook with more than 3000 fans by the name of Physic Quantum!!

Kudos to Brillant!! Its a great source for students to enhance his skills and learn science and mathematics. I would love to a part of it and sending my resume for your kind reference. Thanks...

I've been a fan of Brilliant since it was just a set of 5 problems in each topic area every week. I remember trying so hard to collect points to get that free T-shirt, but I didn't get enough in time before you changed the site layout. I was so miffed -- I wanted that T-shirt! I grew to love the new site, though, especially since it meant anyone could submit problems. I love doing these problems and writing solutions, and I suppose I'll need to start submitting more problems to buff up my Brilliant resume. I have a couple of years of experience teaching mathematics at all levels from elementary to college, but working at Brilliant seems like a dream job to me. Consider me interested!

- 3 years, 5 months ago

I would love to become a part of Brilliant.org even willing to work voluntarily.

- 3 years, 5 months ago

The position definitely is intriguing and I would be interested in pursuing further details. I'm in a position to relocate to San Francisco for the right position and compensation.

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Is there an opening ?

- 3 months, 2 weeks ago

I am interested. Check my profile and let me know is there any work for concepts or creating content ?

- 5 months, 2 weeks ago

Would love to work as a developer .Can you provide additional terms for people interested in applying for a term ?

Dear Khim! My USA addresses are '98074' or '77433'. However I had come to India on Dec 1st. Due to some reasons I could not return to US & my India address is Delhi - 110085 This is why I am late in reply. I am very much interested in Brilliant & attempting the problems regularly. I am BE, ME - Gold medalist, Ph.D in Engg., strong in Science, Mathematical & Engineering problems with a total teaching Experience of about 51 years. If you feel I can be part of your team, please do consider. However it seems difficult to relocate to SFO

I would love to. I am already coaching a school kid in Maths free of charge. How does it work?

- 3 years, 2 months ago

How one can get opportunity ? what'S the criteria ?

- 3 years, 5 months ago

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Dear Ms. Khim,

Thank you very much for your email regarding a position. At present, I am not in a position to give this option a consideration. I may be in a better position to give this my attention after a year or two. I like science and math and am quite interested. At present, I teach architecture and architectural structures, hence i very much appreciate the skills of math, science, and logic that your wonderful site puts to test through its various quizzes.

i hope to keep in touch bronne

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Hello Sue, I am really delighted by your offer. I love maths and science problems. I always want to solve any problem that I encounter on brilliants.org or on any other site. I would love to be a part of your team. Thank for your offer. Please tell me the date of joining. I want to know whether it is really required to relocate to San Fransisco? It is quite hard for me to relocate but if it is really required then I can think of relocation. Please reply me..Waiting for your answer.
Thanks
Regards....

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Ms. Kim, I would like to thank you for your email. I am excited about the prospects.

From what you are saying, you have a wonderful platform to build excellence in math and science on. I have long wished to be able to work with a writing team to construct a new approach to learning math. It sounds like Brilliant could where the action is.

I would like to pursue this further. Thank you again.

- 3 years, 5 months ago

I'm thinking, when is the start day? how much is the salary? Thanks!

- 3 years, 5 months ago

I can do the job for ya.. I won't say I am something like a prodigy no I am not but I am passionate so consider me..

- 3 years, 5 months ago

can i know about the salary package of its?

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Its a lovely offer. I always wanted to work for such an organisation spreading the beauty of science and maths but currently i am not in a position to work because i have to pursue my higher studies. Anyways i will be looking forward for such brilliant opportunities in the coming future. I will surely apply for a job in brilliant after my studies if it has any empty post. Any ways thank you so much @Suyeon Khim !!!!!

- 3 years, 5 months ago

I would like to thank you for the email. I consider it very flattering, intriguing and certainly unexpected.

The offer is compelling and interesting but not going to be something I can consider because of my involvement in other activities. I am a farmer/farm manager and as such am tied to the location where I reside for most of the year. I do have considerable time available in the winter months and very much enjoy Brilliant,org. I am now starting the busy season on the farm and may not find the time to contribute for a few months.

With regards to further participation in Brilliant.org I do have a number of other problems that I think may be interesting to some and will likely post more when time permits.

- 3 years, 5 months ago

I won't mind becoming part of Brilliant.org. Please let me know further details

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Thanks for your message. I am flattered that you selected me as a candidate for this position.

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Wow! So you have already been selected ? Congrats!

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Thanks, but to clarify, I am not yet selected for further consideration. However, I submitted a geometry problem which you may like to try. You can search for it under "PhilBarr". I hope you like it. :-)

- 3 years, 5 months ago

Sure , I'll try it tomorrow .It's getting late at my end . If I start with a problem , I won't go until I have done it and my dad's asking me to go sleep ,so....
