Who We Are

The Oppia Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the mission to provide high quality education to all. We do this through the creation and maintenance of our free-to-use platform, Oppia (https://www.oppia.org), the coordination of our passionate contributors, and the development of critical partnerships with NGOs in the communities we aim to serve.

Where You Fit In

Millions of children are not receiving the education they deserve. Of the 61 million children worldwide who cannot attend primary school, 17 million will never step foot into a school if trends continue. Students around the world face difficulties accessing quality education due to conflict, discrimination, and lack of teacher training - and, in the wake of COVID-19, millions more children are also seeing interruptions in their daily lives, stability, and education, which makes it even more difficult for them to get the education they need to succeed.

Our community of volunteers has created an education platform with novel and engaging story-based mathematics lessons that have proved highly engaging and effective with students from underserved communities. We are looking to build upon this platform and further engage learners by developing features that meet their needs.

We are currently seeking detail-oriented individuals who can help with program management to ensure that new features are tested thoroughly and are ready to be deployed. This process includes collaborating with feature developers, coordinating with our pool of testers, writing bug reports for issues that block launches, and working with our marketing team to ensure our users are educated about these new feature launches. We pride ourselves on offering a high-quality experience to learners, and the Product Operations team plays a key part in this! We welcome individuals who are willing to learn and grow through this opportunity, though it would be good if you already have some prior experience in program management or product management.

Mission Statement

Oppia’s mission is to provide high-quality, engaging education to learners across the globe who lack access to it.

Description

The Oppia team works to create effective, enjoyable online lessons at scale that can reach millions of people. We want every individual, no matter what their personal circumstances, to have access to learning experiences that are not only pedagogically effective, but also fun and engaging. Our focus is on reducing the equity gap in access to education, and we are currently working on providing free and effective basic math and science lessons that can be played on cheap Android devices to learners in underserved communities around the world. Oppia's lessons have already reached over 2,000,000 users, and learners using our basic mathematics curriculum have seen gains of over 50% from pre-test to post-test. You can read some examples of our work in these blog posts: https://medium.com/@ebelubhuhiose/86b97283edf4 and https://medium.com/@ojobusayo99/6e783aaddb74 .

A key differentiator of Oppia is its unique technology platform, which simulates an interactive tutor by adapting each lesson to individual learners’ needs and providing specific, targeted feedback to help them improve. Furthermore, all our lessons are openly licensed and the platform is open source, which enables a diverse group of educators and technologists from around the world to regularly iterate on and improve them.
