IT Specialist - University Support
At Campus, we're on a mission to optimize the world’s teaching and learning.
We’ve assembled a world-class team of engineers, designers, and pedagogists to build an accredited, high quality, affordable alternative to traditional community college.
First, we built Campuswire (https://campuswire.com/platform) -- Campuswire is a powerful teaching tool for large, online classes. It’s used in tens of thousands of classes on 300+ campuses across the country and world (think schools like UCLA, Penn, Oxford and NYU).
Now, we’re using it to further build Campus (https://campus.org). Campus will be a place where students can complete their first two years of college affordably (or tuition debt free) while taking classes with the best teaching faculty in the country. Some of our professors are from UCLA, Berkeley, Spelman, NYU, and Princeton. Our goal is to dramatically increase community college completion rates while increasing pay for talented instructors.
We’re backed by an investor team that believes deeply in our vision for the future of education -- our investors include Sam Altman, Founders Fund, Bloomberg Beta, Precursor Ventures, Reach Capital, Rethink Education, Betaworks and others. We're also supported by a group of amazing angels including Jason Citron (CEO of Discord) and Rob Hayes.
All Campus classes will be live, synchronous, and hosted via the Campuswire platform.
