|Nonprofit Tech Startup Seeks Next-Gen School Leader||Palo Alto, CA|
It’s easy to take Google for granted, but the ability to find almost any piece of information in less than a second is pretty extraordinary. Google’s biggest problem is also its biggest strength: depth. It’s easy to get overwhelmed or distracted by all of the information. Sometimes you need a more focused tool–especially in educational settings. That’s what Gooru is all about. They’re a Palo Alto, CA based non-profit organization that is “organizing free, online education resources into searchable collections, accessible from any web or mobile platform.” By combining machine learning technology with human curation, Gooru is able to provide a resource for students to find what they need without the distractions of other search engines.
Gooru was founded “to honor the human right to education.” There are 1 billion students in the world, and Gooru wants all of them to be better equipped to learn through free access to the organization’s search engine. While Gooru is a search engine, it’s also much more. It’s a worldwide, online learning community. I highly recommend that you learn more by reading Gooru’s Product Summary and Fact Sheet, but the best way to understand how Gooru works is to try it. Go learn something. Then head over to Gooru’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for Gooru Fellows, Front-End Engineers, and Software Developers. Additionally, they have a couple of positions posted on Idealist: Academic Content Area Specialist and Academic Operations Team Member. Gooru looks like a really interesting and rewarding place to work, so check them out.
