About Kiddom
There’s a lack of high quality core curriculum in the K-12 marketplace and it’s exacerbating educational inequities, directly impeding our children’s ability to pursue the college or career pathways of their dreams. We believe high quality instructional materials are critical for an outstanding education. Kiddom’s technology helps teachers understand, utilize, and measure the impact of curriculum. Our platform offers school districts only the best curriculum in the marketplace, rebuilt inside simple, flexible technology to enable teachers and learners to unlock their full potential.

We are a passionate, collaborative team focused on building transformative education technology and making a measurable impact in K-12 education.
We strive to create an inclusive, positive team culture where everyone is respected and valued for everything they bring to Kiddom, not just what they produce.

About the Team
The Versioning team is creating version control features to allow flexible tracking and versioning of base curricula and teacher modifications. Teachers frequently customize the base curriculum, and as the base changes, we need to be able to track versions and intelligently apply teacher customizations to the updated base.
Additionally, the team is addressing the negative performance impact  associated with managing large curriculum graphs.
