Education is about the future: how do we make the future better than the present, how do we preserve the advances we have made so far, and how do we continue to expand the frontiers of human knowledge and capability?
The highest leverage tactic is to focus on childhood education. That’s what we’re doing at Synthesis. Specifically, our mission is to cultivate a generation of supercollaborators: individuals with the capability to solve the most challenging problems of our civilization…together. We offer kids 8-14 the regular opportunity to practice what schools prevent: making consequential decisions, growing through reflection and course corrections, collaborating intensely with peers from around the world, and connecting powerful concepts with real-life application. School is largely a static and single-player experience, while the world demands a dynamic and extensively team-based approach. Consequently, we create team thinking games that are original, unapologetically complex, and designed to surface many kinds of collaboration – only playable within Synthesis.

The Role
We are looking for an experienced Product Lead with the ability to bring this platform to its full potential and refine every aspect of the Synthesis experience. In this role, working closely with our VP Product, cofounders Josh & Chrisman, you will own and build the next phase of Synthesis with a cross-functional team, along with mentoring our more junior Product Managers.
We are teaching the world’s most valuable skill: the ability to solve complex problems with a team. Our goal is to make an education experience so great that even billionaires couldn’t buy anything better for their kids, and then make that affordable for as many people as possible. Join us.

About Synthesis

About Synthesis
Co-founder Josh Dahn built Ad Astra school for Elon’s kids at SpaceX. Now, we are scaling the most ambitious ideas from Ad Astra, starting with the most innovative class: Synthesis.

Synthesis teaches kids to collaboratively work with information like adults do. Students ages 6 to 14 meet once a week to form teams and play novel, complex games and simulations, moderated by an adult coach who encourages clear communication and rigorous analytical thinking. And that is just the beginning. We're building "Ender's Game for innovators", a global internet-native academy to accelerate learning for the world's most talented and driven students, those most likely to contribute to leaps in science and engineering that advance human progress.
We’ve grown revenue 5x in a little over a year – and we’d double again if we admitted everyone on our paid reservation list. Recently we raised $12M from Balaji S. Srinivasan (@balajis) and Amjad Masad (founder of Replit).
Synthesis is a purely remote team who, in addition to Ad Astra, have built Khan Academy, ClassDojo, Facebook, Google, Uber, Roam Research, Zachtronics, and Flexport.
