Job Details


When you were at High School, did you like learning science? How did you figure out things that you found difficult? Did you ever get to practice and have another go at the experiments you found inspiring? If you were the kind of student that had a curiosity about science, were asking why and had a passion to share your interests with others (maybe while conducting your own chemistry explorations in your kitchen), then this might be the post you’ve been looking for.

At Labster, we’re on a mission to make science education accessible to any student with an Internet connection and a laptop. Raising scientific interest and aspiration in high school students by creating highly engaging digital resources for STEM subjects is an important part of that mission.

Our goal to engage early stage high school students and educators in meaningful scientific learning experiences online means we’re ramping up our simulation production capacity at full speed. If you’re passionate about... High School Science, Ed Tech and looking to get hands on with virtual education design, this might be the perfect role for you!

As a key member of our High School mission, you’ll work alongside our Product Owners and Content Development squads to develop and define subject-specific learning progressions and educational content opportunities over four key science disciplines. You’ll also work with our newly established Curriculum team to contribute your educational vision and instructional design expertise to a globally aligned internal curriculum of scientific simulations and supplementary content.

At Labster, we focus on empowering all teams to execute and focus on the impact of their work. This means that we move fast and your contribution will be key in our effort to reach 100 million students across the globe.


  • Serve as a SME resource person in curriculum and instructional design across High School subject areas
  • Work closely with Product Owners in the High School mission to align on individual simulation vision, teaching value and educational goals.
  • Develop content creation opportunities that correlate internal content gaps, typical curricula, and state/national standards/frameworks
  • Support Content Squads in developing educational pitch, depth and sequencing vision for both individual pieces of content and the broader course package
  • Maintain a deep understanding of the High School educational standards and frameworks, especially in the US.
  • Work with the Global Curriculum Lead to build out mission specific internal curricula in high resolution, identify content gaps and create opportunities for new content.
  • Review and update High School framework alignments for new and existing content pieces as required.


  • A good grasp of curriculum and instructional design principles with a strong interest in virtual and distance learning.
  • 2+ years of experience in curriculum development for high school, preferably covering the Sciences within education, publishing or EdTech
  • Working knowledge of US Standards frameworks such as NGSS and Common Core
  • Scientific background in Physics, Earth Science, Biology of Chemistry is a big plus
  • Experience working with or within Agile organizations would be helpful, but not necessary


Our vision is to empower the next generation of scientists to change the world!

Labster’s goal is to develop software that makes learning both engaging and effective, and to make it accessible to as many students as possible (see short trailer here). Every year, our simulations are played by millions of students and each semester more than 4,000 universities, high schools and other institutions around the globe are using them to enhance their teaching programs.

We govern ourselves by using a flat-hierarchy system called Holacracy that is focused on roles, collaboration and distributed leadership. We believe in flexible work hours and a healthy work-life balance, and while we love to achieve great things via concentrated work, it’s incredibly important for us to have happy and engaged team members.

With 20+ nationalities placed in offices in Bali, ZĂĽrich, Copenhagen, and Boston, you will find yourself in a truly international and inclusive environment. We value and protect authentic motivation and empowerment as we believe that the best results are created by engaged and inspired people
