Job Description


We have a fantastic opportunity for a driven and committed content developer to join our passionate Mathematics Team for 2024!

Over 2,000 students have joined our tutoring services since our founding in 2020. Our growth is a testament to our dedication to providing ALL our students and parents with a high-quality tutoring experience (from 24/7 personal support to on-demand resources) and our commitment to helping them achieve their goals.

We empower students and their studies by providing highly engaging small-group tutoring designed to prepare them for school assessments and final exams. Our sessions are presented by experienced but young tutors that can teach the study design in a simple and intuitive yet engaging way.

It’s our vision to reshape education, starting with tutoring.

Of course, to comprehensively prepare students for VCE Maths, it’s simply not enough to just teach them Maths concepts – we must also provide them with tons of high-quality, thorough, and rigorous practice material. That’s where this role comes in!

We are seeking a dedicated and knowledgeable Mathematics Content Developer to join our team. If you have a strong background in mathematics, and a passion for creating engaging and effective content and resources, this role is for you!

Opportunity to Create High-Quality Tutoring Material

Have you ever wanted to impact the education of hundreds of students at once? Maybe you’ve been doing some one-on-one tutoring or content development so far, and now you want to explore larger groups of students? As a VCE Maths Content Developer at Contour, rather than impacting just one or a few students at a time, you can now directly help hundreds of VCE Maths students with your knowledge and expertise, without the hassle of any admin work or finding students.

At Contour, we like to think of resources as the backbone of the tutoring service we provide to our students – it’s the booklets that guide their sessions when they attend Contour class, it’s the booklets that they practice with to consolidate their learning at home, and it’s the booklets that they revise with, to prepare for their SACs and Exams.

As a VCE Maths Content Developer, you’ll be working on the two pillars of Maths resources at Contour – our Core resources (the weekly workbooks, homework booklets, and practice tests – to help students learn, apply, and practice), and then our Mastery resources (the weekly workshops, workshop homework, and practice SACs and Exams – to help students revise, consolidate, and prepare for assessments). 

Support & Personal Development

As a VCE Maths Content Developer at Contour, you’ll be working closely with our passionate Maths tutoring team, as well as our Head of Mathematics – constantly getting input and feedback to further refine exactly what makes up a booklet that is effective, succinct, and gives students exactly what they need, when they need it.

Working in a collaborative environment and an energetic team can be a fantastic opportunity to hone your skills and learn so much along the way. When you work with us, you’ll also have the chance to learn from tutors and content developers who have spent thousands of hours in the field and have garnered years of experience, perfecting their craft.
You’ll be trained upon joining and we’ll provide you with personal feedback as you settle in. You’ll also be engaged with the rest of the team through routine catch-ups and peer-review sessions, and over time you’ll receive further perks, pay rises, classes and work opportunities. We’ll also be there to support you through any personal ventures such as rent applications and job references!

Competitive Pay and Compensation

We pride ourselves on compensating and rewarding our team for their hard work. The starting rate for this role ranges from $30 to $40 per hour (plus Super) depending on your experience, and the complexity of Contour resources you create. We are seeking someone to commit part-time to full-time hours for this role (20 – 38 hours per week).

Minimal Admin Work

There is almost no requirement for admin work. We want you to focus on what you’re passionate about and what you’re good at – which is Mathematics and content creation – we’ll take care of the rest!
