Rumie’s partners select their content from the Rumie LearnCloud, an online repository of free, offline-usable educational content. This platform was created to channel the power of the ‘crowd’ to source, curate, rate and translate the free educational content available online. Rumie is looking for someone who can take the lead in building and managing the LearnCloud global crowdsourcing community. This will be a user acquisition and product development role. This person will attract users, obtain their feedback, and work with our front-end web developer to apply their feedback and make it a useful resource. Rumie anticipates that people will use the LearnCloud for their own purposes, with the extra benefit of helping us find great free content to deliver to underserved kids around the world on tablets.

Working at a startup means that roles are not clearly defined, so we’re looking for a self-starter who can figure out what is worthwhile to do and quickly see if something’s a waste of time.
