Join Our Team

At Desmos, we like hard problems, which is why we've picked one of the toughest problems in education: making challenging math engaging and accessible to everyone, everywhere. We work in the intersection of thoughtful curriculum design and cutting-edge technology, and we're hiring!

Our Story

At Desmos, we're on a mission to help every student learn math and love learning math. Our free graphing calculator is upending a multi-decade monopoly to make math available to billions of students in the world by breaking down barriers of income and disability. Our graphing calculator services over 40 million users per year and has raised the standard for digital math tools, with excellent feedback from classroom teachers and glowing coverage from CNN, Bloomberg, USAToday, and others.

We're now working to raise the standard for digital math content by designing activities that combine the best ideas from education research, technology, and design. These activities have a large and growing community of millions of students and teachers around the world.

Our beautiful, sunny office is located in SOMA, right in the heart of San Francisco. We're backed by Google Ventures, Kapor Capital, and Learn Capital, but our business model is strong enough that we are funding our newest projects with our own revenue, all while giving away our graphing calculator at no cost to teachers and students.

Our Values

We want to live in a world where opportunity doesn’t depend on the circumstances of your birth. In particular, we want everyone everywhere to have equal access to the power and beauty of math. We understand that, presently, some populations of students are more likely than others to encounter this beauty and power. We need your help to change that.

Just as people need math, math needs people. The world is full of problems for which math is a part of the solution. Many of these solutions will require new ideas, and even new mathematics. The more diverse the people who identify and work on these problems, the more likely we'll be able to find solutions. At the macro level, this means supporting diverse students and teachers in learning powerful mathematics. At the micro level, it means we need a diverse set of colleagues building the tools to support those students and teachers.

Come build a better world with us, a world of mathematical power and joy for all.

Desmos is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. Furthermore, we believe that diversity leads to stronger teams, better products, and more successful companies. Come join us as we tackle the hard problems we love and build an enduring company in the process.
