Education and technology are our passions
You will be responsible for contributing to the development of materials for our new MCAT products, as well as helping to maintain and improve the quality of our existing resources. Day-to-day responsibilities will vary significantly but are likely to include:
Writing and revising practice MCAT passages, questions, and explanations
Writing and editing content for MCAT prep books
Writing and editing MCAT video scripts, as well as reviewing produced MCAT/science video to ensure accuracy and overall quality
Reviewing work done by other team members, part-time employees, and/or contractors
Working with marketing and operations teams to support current programs by running exam- or science-focused webinar events, developing materials for these events, answering student questions, and otherwise contributing to the quality of our MCAT offerings
You will be successful in this position if you contribute very high-quality material on spec and on deadline, and if you function well on a collaborative team. You will experience a "lack of success" if your output includes mistakes, is late, fails to meet standards of consistency, style, or format, or simply doesn't speak in the voice of the test-makers.
Ability to produce high-quality work with a strong eye to detail, while adhering to a timeline
Strong desire to help students succeed - we're here because we want our students to meet their MCAT goals, get into medical school, and make a difference to their patients
90%+ MCAT score (or 90%+ score on another graduate school entrance exam along with very substantial and specific MCAT writing experience)
Ability to work well as part of a team, including comfort with reviewing others' work and having your own work reviewed
College degree, with advanced degree or strong test prep content development experience preferred
