About SplashLearn

Our vision is to transform K-12 learning by making it fun and personalized for every child globally and to prepare them for the skills required in 21st-century. With more than 30M+ students onboard, we are the fastest growing elementary math program in the United States. Backed by Accel Partners and many more prominent investors, SplashLearn has won almost all Ed-tech awards ranging from Stevie Award for best Ed-tech product, Tabby award for best business, Parents Choice Award, Best App Ever Award, and many others. We believe, this is just the beginning.

To help us get to the next stage and to reach 100M+ students worldwide, we are looking for highly motivated individuals with a passion for building high performing teams. 

 

When was the last time you learned something new? Was it in a classroom? Upon doing an assignment? When did someone tell you how something needs to be done? 

Most likely it was none of these, but a time you enjoyed doing something so much, you couldn't stop doing it, till the time you got better at it. 

That's why at SplashLearn we believe that learning & fun go hand in hand. We get excited by knowing that millions of 3 to 10-year-olds come to our product every month to have fun playing our carefully crafted games and end up learning Maths & English while they are at it. 

And did we tell you how fun it is to design for kids? A lot!

Imagine a user who can't read, who can't click on a small button but has this insatiable appetite for finding something playful. Add to it the complexity that none of them will sit straight in a user testing session without getting distracted. Top that up with the knowledge that every two years their preferences shift so much that you're not even speaking to the same person anymore. And finally, add on that a layer of social responsibility and child protection that comes with digital product usage by kids. 

Designing for this user is super duper challenging and therefore super duper fun. But wait, we didn't even tell you about the kid's concerned parents & their ambitious teachers- We design for them too.
