Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) develops educational opportunities for many of the most eager students in the world.  Since 2003, we have trained tens of thousands of the country’s top students, including nearly all the members of the US International Math Olympiad team, through our online school, learning centers, textbooks, and online learning systems. Over the years, our international online community of advanced problem-solvers has grown to over 800,000 members. While our primary focus has been math for most of our history, we have started expanding into new subjects, such as language arts, science, and computer science.

They and we need you because you create with code. Building new things and improving old things is an intrinsic part of who you are. You want to explore new technologies that will help us educate and inspire the next generation of builders. But most of all, you were just like our students when you were younger, and you want to build applications that you wish existed when you were a kid.

As the number of users and classes on our websites has grown, so has the scope and complexity of our engineering efforts. We are looking for strong engineers who are ready to join our team and take on new projects to improve our online learning resources, class infrastructure, and staff tools.
