You have that optimism that you can have a career that changes the world. You want to work with people, make a difference in their lives, and get the breadth of experience you can build a meaningful career on.
You’ll find what you’re looking for here.
We’re MakerKids, developing STEM maker learning programs for kids. We started the first makerspace for kids and now run virtual STEM programs in the world. We ignite kids’ potential and inspire them to be inventors, entrepreneurs, and innovators.
We’ve been featured in major media such as Wired, CTV and the Globe and Mail, and have spoken at SXSW, Maker Faire, MakerCon, and more. We’re growing quickly, and we’re looking for leaders to grow with us and ultimately drive our mission forward. Right now, we’re looking for a new Growth Marketing Manager.
Maker programs are gaining steam. Demand for our programs is growing quickly. You’ll be a key member of the team, making sure that our programming is the best it can be.
MakerKids is hiring a Curriculum Developer to develop and enhance MakerKids programming. We offer after school programs, camps, parties, school programs and more. All programs are currently virtual. Program content primarily includes Robotics, Coding and Minecraft.
This is your chance to inspire and shape the next generation of innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs - by helping them to develop the skills and mindsets to change the world. Our programs help kids build confidence, social skills, resilience, and a positive relationship with technology. Participants have gone on to start businesses, win prizes from NASA, and have positive mental health outcomes. We are pioneering technology therapy - like art therapy or music therapy, but using technologies like Minecraft to help people. Children’s mental health professionals have referred kids to us because of the positive results they have seen with their clients.
Learning the Role
You don’t necessarily have to have perfected the full range of technical skills upon starting the role that kids will need for their projects. Fellow MakerKids staff will be happy to provide you assistance with any specific subject matter and skills you need to delve deeper into. What we want to see from you is the Maker spirit – an ability to write curriculum that encourages creative, collaborative, and enthusiastic development of technical and social skills.
