Why work at Magoosh

Magoosh prepares students for school. If you’ve ever wanted to teach students you’ve never met to read, to write, and to ‘rithmetic, Magoosh is the place. We’ve helped over 50,000 students in 150 countries prepare for colleges, graduate schools, and business schools.

Magoosh has been around for two years and is growing fast. We’ve grown from an idea to a business, from a single table to a small office, and from a handful of beta testers to thousands of customers. We need more excellent people to continue delivering teaching to the world.

Magoosh is a small team in Downtown Berkeley. Located by the UC Berkeley campus, the small Magoosh team is a wisecracking bunch who eat out every day. Do you like foosball, root beer floats, and word games? Come join us!
