From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe.We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.

Transcribers listen to audio responses from students in grades 2-12 and using specific transcription notation, transcribe word for word the students’ utterance. The work is very detail oriented and meticulous. Successful transcribers have an interest in language, a good ‘ear’, and enjoy the challenge of deciphering spoken audio responses.
