  • Strong mathematical LaTeX coding skills
  • Extremely focused attention to detail – ability to catch minute errors and inaccuracies
  • Excellent time and project management skills – including the ability to meet project deadlines
  • Reliable – when you take on a task, you see it through to the best of your ability
  • Concerned about aesthetics 
  • Native English speaker with strong verbal and written communication skills
  • While this work is primarily asynchronous, you must have availability to meet once per week (US Pacific time zone) with a Lumen Course Product Manager to review project progress

About Lumen

Lumen’s company mission is to enable unprecedented learning for all students. Each year we support 400,000 students and 5,000 faculty members in college courses. We’re using technology, learning design informed by data, and openly licensed content (OER) to enable learning results and opportunities for students. Wherever possible, we find and reuse existing OER. In cases where no OER exists, we create content and openly license it for use by others.

Lumen provides solutions that create effective learning experiences for students and guide faculty members in the use of evidence-based teaching practices that improve student success. Lumen seeks to create success for all students, with an emphasis on ensuring that race and income are not predictors of success.

Lumen is a small company that is growing rapidly. We are doing something that has not been done before. This requires creativity, commitment, generosity,  openness, and a drive to create belonging for our team and community.
