Summary
If you want students to excel in mathematics, you need an excellent curriculum. As a Knowledge Engineer at Reasoning Mind, you’ll help create a quality curriculum that provides tens of thousands of students with a first-rate mathematics education.
What do Knowledge Engineers at Reasoning Mind do?
One of the strongest curricula available for elementary and middle school mathematics is the curriculum developed in Russia in the 1960s and 1970s. The only problem is: it’s used in classrooms over there; we want to bring it to classrooms over here. Knowledge Engineers work with Reasoning Mind’s expert Russian mathematics teachers to learn about how they plan and carry out their lessons. (Note: no knowledge of the Russian language is required.) They then use this knowledge to design interactive online lessons that simulate the work of these teachers in software.
To design lessons, Knowledge Engineers write detailed scripts describing what the lessons should be like. In addition to clear explanations of mathematical concepts, Knowledge Engineers’ scripts contain interesting problems, engaging games, dialogue promoting good learning values, and much more. The Knowledge Engineer then works with artists, animators, and programmers to bring the lessons into existence in the Reasoning Mind system.
What knowledge and skills are needed?
Knowledge Engineers must have:

  • Strong knowledge of mathematics
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Good interpersonal skills
  • Good writing skills
  • Creativity

Programming experience is not necessary.
What does it take to become a Knowledge Engineer at Reasoning Mind?
Reasoning Mind is very selective, and only a small percentage of applicants receive offers. Simply having a successful college or graduate school career is not enough: Significant weight is put on how successful applicants are at completing the assignments given during the application process.
Where is the job based?
The job is based in Houston, TX. There is also the potential for occasional travel to Moscow, Russia.
What are the biggest advantages of working as a Knowledge Engineer at Reasoning Mind?

  • Impact. Knowledge Engineers are at the core of what Reasoning Mind does. The lessons you design will provide a first-rate mathematics education to tens of thousands of students across the country.
  • The team. You’ll be joining a fun, driven curriculum development team and work closely with the organization’s leadership.
  • The culture. You’ll be working with thoughtful, friendly, intellectual people. The office abounds with interesting discussions, ranging from relevant research to literature and board games.
  • Growth. You'll continually learn new things, deepening your knowledge of math curricula, psychology, AI methods, and many other fields.
  • Advancement. Because of Reasoning Mind's rapid growth, exceptionally talented people have the opportunity to quickly advance to roles of increasing responsibility.

Is this position for entry-level or mid-career professionals?
There are two variants of this position, one for entry-level and one for early-career applicants:

  • Knowledge Engineers – recent college graduates
  • Senior Knowledge Engineers – recent PhD graduates or postdoctoral researchers in mathematics or the sciences, or individuals with several years of relevant work experience

What career paths are open to Knowledge Engineers?
Because they are at the center of Reasoning Mind’s curriculum development efforts, Knowledge Engineers can grow into a variety of leadership roles in curriculum, including managing teams of other Knowledge Engineers.
In addition, Reasoning Mind employees often move to other departments at Reasoning Mind as they develop interests in different areas of the organization’s work.
What are the benefits?
Reasoning Mind offers an exceptional benefits package. As a Reasoning Mind employee, you will enjoy comprehensive health insurance (medical, dental, and vision) as well as short-term disability insurance, long-term disability insurance, and life insurance. You will receive 17 days of annual paid vacation and have the additional option of telecommuting – working from home or remotely from any location in the world – for a total of 20 days every year.
