We believe that unforgettable educational moments lead to more effective outcomes. To accomplish our mission, we're developing a suite of experiences for teachers and students that are engaging and easy to use. 

Created by a high school student who wanted to play a more engaging learning game in school, our core product is an online game show for the classroom that requires knowledge, strategy, collaboration, and communication to win. 


Gimkit was launched at the end of October, 2017. Since then, we've worked closely with teachers and students to improve Gimkit piece by piece. With their help, Gimkit is now played millions of times a month in classrooms ranging from 1st to 12th grade. 

Gimkit emphasizes content mastery for students and easy implementation for teachers. 


Subscription-based, our game is 100% focused on the teacher and student experience. We don't sell or leverage teacher data because that isn't how memorable experiences are created. Gimkit was created to improve education not to sell advertising space, and we've never wavered from that initial vision. 


Teachers love that the game keeps students engaged and focused on learning the material. Students love the game's critical thinking, strategy, and competition. 


We're a tiny team, but we are fun, loud, and more than a little crazy about reshaping education. We're efficient and focused on making a high level of impact without working 100 hours a week. 


We're a remote company. You can read more about our work culture here and here


We believe in fair, living wages no matter where you live. To do this, we pay 30% more than the average person makes in your city with the same role and experience. 


However, tech salaries have gone up much quicker than salaries for non-tech roles at tech companies. To ensure we're providing a fair, living wage we've decided to pay whichever is higher: $65,000 a year or 30% more than the average person makes in your city with the same role and experience. 


We don't do bonuses at Gimkit. Instead, we share Gimkit's profits across all employees. Typically, each employee takes home thousands extra every year. 


Our benefits are all aimed at supporting a life well lived away from work. None are designed to try to make you work longer hours or force you into staying around for a job you don't like. 


Benefits for All Employees
 

  • 💗 Health, dental, and vision insurance: 100% premiums for you and 50% premiums for your dependents
  • 🌴 Flexible time-off policy with a 10 day a year minimum
  • 🤗 $1,000 a year charitable donation match
  • ❄️ 2 week paid winter break at the end of each year
  • 📘 5 paid days per year to volunteer in Education
  • 👵 401k match up to 6% of salary
  • 🏃 $100 a month health stipend (gym membership, massage, meditation app subscription)
  • 💸 Profit-sharing
  • 👶 3 months paid maternity and paternity leave
  • 🛎️ $350 a month working budget (for co-working space, coffee shop, home office improvement)
  • ✈️ Work remotely. At home, co-working space, or coffee shop, it's up to you. Your salary will adapt to fit the cost of living wherever you live
  • 😔 And while this shouldn't need to be mentioned under benefits, we think it's worthwhile to bring up work-week hours. Only about 12% of startup employees work 40 hours a week or less (https://stateofstartups2019.firstround.com/). We're part of that 12%. We're not interested in crazy hours.
