Knewton is building the world's most powerful adaptive learning engine, with the goal of making personalized and engaging education available to all. Knewton has been recognized as a Technology Pioneer for 2011 by the World Economic Forum in Davos and one of the top 25 best places to work by Crain’s New York Business. This is an outstanding opportunity to work with and learn from the world's best engineers and data scientists.
On a personal note: working for us means you'll get free dinner, drinks, coffee, the benefits you'd expect from a mature company (health/dental/vision, group deals on gym memberships, 401(k)), and the great perks you'd expect from a small company (our ping-pong tournament starts next week, our happy hours start every Friday at 5:01pm, and our vacation policy is limitless).
We're also pretty flexible about getting work done. We all work remotely to some degree (I work from Miami every other month, and we have devs in Hawaii and Colorado), and those on our team who weren't impacted by Sandy are working at coffee shops, libraries, and apartments across the five boroughs.
Feel free to ask me any questions @achompas on Twitter.
