Art of Problem Solving Careers

What You're Good At

While we've listed a number of specific jobs below, our most pressing need is for more people who have strong math or programming skills, are passionate about math, and want to work with some of the most outstanding math students in the world. If that describes you, then we might be able to build a role around your interests and abilities.

To apply, send a cover letter and resume to jobs@artofproblemsolving.com. Please describe what roles you might play at AoPS. Currently we are most interested in candidates who would like to work full-time in our offices in San Diego, CA.

All applicants must be U.S. citizens or otherwise legally able to accept full-time work in the U.S.

Middle/High School Math Educator

You look over the bios of our instructors and think, “Those are my people!” You love math as much as we do, and you love sharing math with students who thirst to learn more. You write well, you think about how to make other people smarter, and you know that the little stuff really matters when making something great. You just wish you could find students and coworkers who have favorite math problems.

To apply, send a cover letter, your favorite math problem, and a resume to jobs@artofproblemsolving.com. Please include a sample (or links to samples) of your work, such as a mathematical writing sample and/or lesson material that you have written. This is a full-time position in our offices in San Diego, CA.

Elementary School Curriculum Developer

You think it’s great that AoPS has so many amazing students doing middle and high school math and wish there were many more students who entered those years with the passion and ability that our students have. So, you want to help build the next generation of AoPS online school students through our Beast Academy program for elementary school. You have an intuitive, creative approach to solving math problems, think deeply about how young children encounter mathematical ideas, and you’re interested in exploring how to deliver engaging content online.

To apply, send a cover letter and resume to jobs@artofproblemsolving.com. Please include a sample (or links to samples) of your work, such as a mathematical writing sample and/or lesson material that you have written. If you have a favorite Beast Academy character, tell us who it is, and why. This is a full-time position in our offices in San Diego, CA.

Student Services Specialist

You're passionate about education and love what you see on AoPS, but you're not a math person yourself. However, you're excited about online education and the opportunity to help outstanding students develop their skills by addressing the non-math components of their activity on AoPS. You're an excellent writer, are very good at anticipating others' needs and concerns, and can handle managing a wide range of tasks and people.

To apply, send a cover letter and resume to jobs@artofproblemsolving.com. Please include a at least two writing samples in addition to your cover letter. This is a full-time position in our offices in San Diego, CA.

Online School Conductor

You may not play all the instruments, but you know how to make others play together beautifully. You can coordinate the efforts of many people, providing training and guidance as necessary. You’re excellent at short-range and long-range planning, and anticipate problems before they occur. You love math and teaching, and even though you may not have the math background of our instructors, you can still jump in and help out with our younger students.

To apply, send a cover letter and resume to jobs@artofproblemsolving.com. Highlight teams, events, or organizations that you have helped coordinate. Please include a sample (or links to samples) of your work, such as a mathematical writing sample and/or lesson material that you have written. This is a full-time position in our offices in San Diego, CA.

Software Engineer

You create with code. Building new things and improving old things is an intrinsic part of who you are. You want to use those skills to make something that’s more than just a dressed-up ad-delivery company. You want to explore new technologies that will help us educate and inspire the next generation of builders. But most of all, you were just like our students when you were younger, and you want to build applications that you wish existed when you were a kid.

To apply, send your cover letter and resume to jobs@artofproblemsolving.com, and tell us about the coolest thing you ever made (or the coolest thing you’d like to make!). This is a full-time position in our offices in San Diego, CA.

Individual Course Instructor

You fit right in with our instructors, but you’re not able to join us full-time out here in sunny San Diego. You love teaching outstanding students who thirst to learn more, and you have a few hours a week to share your love of math with our students. You’ve worked with high-performing students before, or you were an avid participant in math camps and math contests back when you were a student. You’re available once or twice a week 7-9 pm ET (4-6 pm PT), which is when most of our classes run, and have 1-3 other hours a week to prepare, participate in class message board discussions, and review graders' comments on student work.

To apply, send a cover letter and resume to jobs@artofproblemsolving.com. Please include a sample (or links to samples) of your work, such as a mathematical writing sample and/or lesson material that you have written.

Teaching Assistant/Grader

You’re still in college, so you’re not ready to join AoPS full-time yet, but you want to share your love of math with younger students for a few hours a week. Maybe you’re a past AoPS student, and remember a particularly helpful assistant. Maybe you want some pizza money during school, or a meaningful summer job that you can pursue part-time or full-time.

To apply to join our team of teaching assistants and graders, please contact us at grading+assisting@artofproblemsolving.com.
