Mathigon is an online learning platform for mathematics. Our goal is to develop the world’s best online maths content, and transform education by making it more interactive, personalised and engaging than ever before. We want everyone to be able to enjoy learning mathematics, and appreciate its beauty and applications.
Mathigon was developed by Philipp Legner, starting just as a spare-time outreach project, but has grown into a platform with more than 400k active users per year, and won some of the biggest EdTech awards around the world. Mathigon has been called “a true mathematical wonderland” by The Guardian, and “a front-runner for a new generation of textbooks” by Common Sense Education.
Our primary product is an interactive, online textbook for students aged 11-18. We call it the “Textbook of the Future”, but it is so much more than just a book. Rather than watching static videos, rote learning or multiple-choice questions, we want students to be able to explore, discover, be creative, learn problem-solving, and gain a deep understanding of mathematics. The content is uniquely interactive and personalised, and filled with real-life applications, colourful illustrations, and engaging storytelling.

Join our new team if you love mathematics, and you’re excited about sharing that love with others. You will be one of the first employees of Mathigon, with the opportunity to have a significant impact not just on our company, but on mathematics education around the world.
Mathigon is based in London, but we are building a remote team so you can work from anywhere in the world. You can also work part-time or as a freelancer, but you should be available for at least 16 hours per week. Since our team is so small, we are looking for people who have a wide range of skills, and are excited about learning new ones.
If you are interested in any of the roles above, or if you have other ideas how you could contribute to Mathigon, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV. Tell us what excites you about the role, your favourite parts of mathematics, and links to any relevant projects you’ve worked on (e.g. videos, blog posts, interactive content, or GitHub repos).
The application process will include one or more video calls over Google Hangouts. We also may ask you to write a short article that explains a mathematical topic of your choice in an engaging and interactive way.
