MathCrunch Description

Engineering Internship-MathCrunch

Education is long due for an overhaul. With the efficacy and efficiency of our classrooms plummeting every year, this industry is primed for disruption. MathCrunch is that step. Think of us as Uber, but for education. That’s right; as you sit there, reading this letter, our app is allowing students across the globe to use their smartphones to get one-on-one instant tutoring. We offer 24/7 help to people at all stages of their math education, from beginning, all the way through calculus. The revolution has started, and we won’t let it stop until our company is to learning as Ticonderoga is to pencils.

As of today, we are MathCrunch – producers of one of the leading mobile applications in education. As backed by the same investors as Facebook, Twitter, Oculus Rift, and Uber, we have some of Silicon Valley’s brightest, most innovative individuals working together to disrupt the entire education industry. We’ve come a long way, now employing top engineers in a San Francisco office. But these achievements pale in comparison to our real ambitions. Our longer term goal is a huge rebrand, allowing us to expand to become an online education hub that will have the capability to tutor every subject in every language on any smartphone around the globe. Physics, chemistry, you name it, we are interested in teaching it. With ScienceCrunch in the works, we’re well on the way to dominating the industry, and we won’t be finished until the revolution is complete, and our company is the next massive global enterprise.

All the fame and fortune is good, but that just comes as a byproduct of what we’re really chasing. This is a chance to help create something that will shape the next wave of education through technology. By joining our team as an intern this summer, you will influence the company that disrupts it all.

If you're looking for an internship for the summer because you just have to have one, this is not for you. This is something different. We're not just seeking interns, we’re looking for idea machines; people who find themselves constantly thinking, planning, dreaming. We will only settle for the kinds of people who have unmatched persistence, to the point of obsession; the kind of people who have an unfulfilled need in their soul to succeed, hungry to win.

If you don't feel the same passionate burn we do, you should stop reading now. You'd be wasting your time.

However, if you truly are the type of person who will do anything to succeed and who has a deep sense of commitment, then I promise you, this will be the opportunity of a lifetime. By joining our team this summer, you will be given valuable experience in creating new services from the ground up, seeing ideas from paper to reality, and finding engineering solutions to the major problems of today.

Alongside our team of engineers, you will be rolling up your sleeves, and diving headfirst into designing and implementing programs that will take our company to the next level.
