Want to help build a truly innovative approach to education in a unique startup environment? Classcraft is rethinking what going to school means for millions of students around the world. By applying principles typically used in video games to the classroom experience, Classcraft is having a positive impact on many key issues facing today’s disengaged students.

Featured in over 100 media outlets, including BBC, Engadget, Fast Company, and VentureBeat, Classcraft now has over 4 million users in 75 countries and offices in New York City, Montreal, and Sherbrooke, QC.

We’re a great team looking for someone to lead our illustration department full-time at our Montreal office. Qualified candidates will work closely with Classcraft’s President to help manage team members and develop the story world and visual style of the Classcraft universe.
