Brilliant is a tight-knit team of scientists, educators, engineers, designers, storytellers, and illustrators who are redesigning education at scale.
We believe that math and science are fascinating and beautiful, but that the tools widely used to teach it are dry and ineffective. Brilliant makes learning STEM fun, through problem solving and interactive explorations – from foundational math and science to cutting-edge computer science and professional topics.
Brilliant helps over 12 million students, professionals, and lifelong learners around the world cultivate problem solving skills, build intuition, and master concepts rather than memorize them. To understand more about our approach, see our learning principles.
You can see all open roles and learn more about our team culture on our Careers page.
As a Machine Learning Content Writer, you will create interactive courses that introduce topics across a range of machine learning topics: from the foundational principles, to neural nets and AI training, to cutting edge LLM technology. You’ll play a key role in the growth of an exceptional body of content.
Who Are You?
- Have experience working with AI in an industry, teaching, or research setting.
- Have a strong foundation in a quantitative discipline and a keen interest in the rapidly evolving area of machine learning and AI.
- Have an excellent sense of what makes an explanation or example great. Teaching experience is an added (but not required) bonus.
- Want to share the sense of awe that comes from understanding AI and its potential!
- Knowledgeable about active learning (learning by doing, instead of listening to lectures).
- Have a strong command of English grammar and usage.
- Are available to work a minimum of 20 hours per week.
Specifically, You Will
- Outline and write delightful content that teaches how to think about and use machine learning and AI tools by developing a cartoon model.
- Work with illustrators, animators, and programmers to create visuals and interactive demonstrations that make the concepts tangible!
- Challenge the existing body of AI education and experiment with novel teaching methods.
- Develop a narrative voice that empowers learners while distilling complex topics down to their components.
- Provide a sense of what makes each new skill useful and predict what misconceptions and and misapplications might be the likely culprits of confusion when this skill is in use.

We use a systematic compensation framework. Salary scales are set each year for each job vertical, based on market data and company budget. Independently, managers level folks on their team, and those levels are mapped formulaically to our compensation scales.
Additionally, we always make First and Best Offers – there is no negotiation (for new hires nor our existing teammates). This ensures that people are paid based on their expected contribution, rather than their negotiation skills.
We do apply a location-based adjustment in less competitive markets, typically 5-10%. Feel free to ask us about your particular location!
