Who we are

Fiveable is a social learning platform where students take the lead to grow beyond the classroom together. Through a poppin’ student-led community, accessible study material, and guided programs, Fiveable is where students have the power to create their own future. Here at Fiveable, we know that young people lack learning spaces where they have power to explore the possibilities and take guided steps towards their future. That is why we create spaces that give students more access and confidence to explore their futures together. At Fiveable, we believe that a world where students everywhere have the power to create their own future is possible.

During the 2020-2021 school year, we had 5.5 million unique visitors on our platform, 97,000 new accounts created, and over 23,000 members on our Discord channel. And we are just getting started. Backed by investors such as BBG Ventures, Metrodora Ventures, and 27 Ventures, we raised $2.2 million dollars in their seed round last summer. Check out a list of our other investors here. In the spring of 2021, Fiveable acquired Hours, a virtual study platform where students can come together to learn. Since then, we have been working hard to make Fiveable + Hours the number one place where high schoolers study together.

The Fiveable Team

We're a creative group of former teachers, community builders, game designers, and generally curious people who are driven by social impact. We're focused on building a diverse team and are inclusive of all backgrounds. And we're big on growth mindsets - we're all learning!

‍

Who we're looking for

We are growing at a rapid pace, and with more and more users on our site (we've hit 10x YoY this fall!), there are more students that need support from Fiveable. In supporting students, what better way than creating a robust community, where not only we support them, but they also support one another. That's why Fiveable will be the place for students to learn and grow together. With our community living on Discord, we are realizing that we need to also create community on our Fiveable.me website and with Hours as this will create more space for students to interact with one another.

The ideal candidate will be an adult who loves to work with students, but also knows what educational activities are a hit with GenZers. This person also loves to collect qualitative and quantitative data to inform what's working for students, what is keeping them engaged, and how we can improve the community experience. This person also loves to get creative when thinking about engagement strategies and just loves to have fun with it! Community is the place where students want to connect on all thing educational, but also learn content that goes beyond the classroom.

Our mission and team

Our mission is to make learning easy and fun. We know that educational inequities have left students overwhelmed and fending for themselves. In order to close the opportunity gap, we need to create space for students to be creative and curious. To do this, we've created a social network for online learning communities through interactive content and courses. Because of COVID, we're in a lightning strike moment for education and we're fired up to change the way things are for high school students.
