Who we are
Our mission is to make the world a better place by unleashing the potential of billions of students worldwide. We believe that the current education system is broken because it rarely takes advantage of our personal motivations, leverage what science tells us about how our brains learn best, or use technology and big data to optimize and validate it's methods.
We're solving the 7 trillion dollar problem of one-size-fits-all education by creating a next-generation learning platform that makes learning fun and fiercely effective -- and that gets better the more we use it. The first application of our platform serves pre-meds and medical students. We currently serve 1 out of every 4 medical students across the country.
What we're looking for
Firecracker is looking for cooperative, team-oriented, and consistent nursing students who are passionate about our mission and want to work in a supportive and family-like environment that prizes standardization and celebrates high attention to detail and error-free work. The ideal candidate will love the opportunity to author and edit course relevant nursing topics.
Firecracker is headquartered in Cambridge Massachusetts, but we are looking for candidates who live anywhere.
Specifically, we want someone who is/has:
Subject Editors must first complete a screening project in which they author a minimum of two topics and/or two exam-like questions.
All of our editors start off as Subject Editors and most stay with us for many years and eventually join our editorial or advisory boards once they become professionals, run their own labs, or become professors. In between, those who want to take on other responsibilities have the opportunity to do so (i.e. as Senior Editors or Managing Editors).
Our goal is to recruit the best and brightest and do whatever we can to keep them involved throughout their careers. Our mission to make the world a better place by unleashing the potential of billions of students worldwide will outlive us all. Therefore, we want people who see our work at Firecracker as core to their own sense of purpose.
