About  Shmoop

Jobs

Change the face of education. Help the younger generation fall in love with the world around them. Consume your weight in chocolate chip cookies. Sound like a dream gig? We think so, too.

Hailing from top-notch academic programs like Stanford, Berkeley, and Harvard, as well as corporate powerhouses like Yahoo! and Google, the Shmoop Team is dedicated to making education funny, friendly, and freaking fantastic.

Interested in Joining Team Shmoop?

We move quickly. We devour pop culture. We debate passionately, whether it’s about philosophy or The X-Files. We obsess over grammar. We quiz each other on literature, history, and last night’s episode of The Bachelor. We chow on Specialty's cookies. Best of all, we dream of better ways to make learning fun and relevant. It’s like The Avengers, only instead of defeating evil aliens, we’re besting crusty academic texts and ignorance.

We’re rapidly growing (we're like Tribbles in here), so it's a great time to join our team! We treat our employees like family, which means we work hard and then eat burritos together even harder.

Sound like an awesome deal? (You know it.) Whether you love to work from home in your PJ’S or want to see our beautiful faces every day at our Intergalactic Headquarters in Mountain View, CA, we’ve got the job for you.

How to Apply

The first step to becoming a star Shmooper is following directions. If you don’t, we’ll judge you. If you do, you’ll get brownie points before we even see your resume.

And we love brownies.

Step 1: In the subject line of an email, put the name of the position you’re applying to, with your name in parentheses. Like so:

Humorous Content Writer (Darth Vader)

That’s right: we’re telling you what to write in the subject line. We know that decision is always stressful, so you can thank us later.

Step 2: Write something along the lines of “Cover letter and resume attached!” in the body of the email. No need to copy the cover letter into the body of the email—we promise we’ll read the attachments.

Step 3: Attach a killer resume and hilarious cover letter, using either Word or PDF form. If anything else is requested by the specific position you’re applying to, go ahead and attach that, too.

Step 4: Send it to [email protected]. You’ll get a nice canned response letting you know that we’ve received your application, and if we think you’re a good fit for Shmoop, we’ll contact you within 1-2 weeks.

And that's that.
