About Edrolo

Edrolo is here with a mission to improve education, and we’re looking for people equally passionate about making a difference in the world. We’re changing the game for secondary school students and teachers by not only reimagining and creating a new breed of core educational resources, but overhauling how educational content is created in the first place. 1200 schools across Australia turn to Edrolo daily. Our team of educators, creators, authors, Learning Innovation Associates, and generally mission-aligned rockstar Edrollers are just getting started.

About our Content Production Team

We’re here to make a difference in the lives of learners, and we’re doing that by making a difference in how content is created. In other words, we’ve completely changed the process for creating core curriculum resources (aka textbooks). While the old process involved outsourcing to a handful of educators to author content under a royalty agreement, we instead choose to bring the whole process in-house by hiring a team of amazing teachers, subject matter experts, production gurus, and more to bring each title to life. Creating the best resources isn’t our side job, it’s our sole focus, and the results speak for themselves: our resources have gained leading market share positions for every title we’ve produced to date.

Over the next few years, we’re embarking on the most ambitious content build in Australian education history, and everything we do is getting more exciting, creative, and complex by the day. We are rapidly scaling our content production to cover more subjects, more curriculums, and more states, which opens up the exciting opportunity for a Content Manager to join our team and contribute to driving forward our expansion.

Edrolo’s Content Production Team is stacked with problem solvers of the highest calibre. We’re at a turning point and looking for someone to lead our Content teams into the next phase.

In this role you’ll be working closely with our curriculum leads to ensure delivery of our titles, and ensure that they are of the highest quality.
