Over the next few months, we’ll be trekking around the country to visit college engineering programs and recruit a few good Knerds. One of our first stops is Carnegie Mellon, which just happens to be the alma mater of two of Knewton’s greatest data scientists. We made a short video about how George and Jesse’s experiences in Pittsburgh helped shape their careers as Knerds. Take a look, and meet them in the flesh on campus… Read more

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to attend Eyeo Festival, a conference where the ideas of data, interaction, and art are explored together as a whole. It’s called a conference, but it doesn’t feel much like one. I would say it feels more like a celebration. A celebration for the community of dataists, coders, designers, and artists that are working at this intersection. A celebration at which to marvel at the magic and transformative… Read more
Knewton Math Readiness, a web-based developmental math course built on the Knewton Adaptive Learning Platform, creates a guided, self-paced environment in which live instruction is optimized around targeted group sessions. The course presents students with personalized learning paths as it continually assesses their mathematical proficiency and adapts accordingly. Early efficacy reports reflect the success of Knewton Math Readiness at ASU. After four semesters of use with over 5,000 developmental math students at Arizona State University,… Read more

In a few weeks, we’ll be at one of the most venerable seats of higher learning all the world over: Cambridge, Massachusetts. Join us as we cast our genius net at the MIT Tech Fair on Monday, February 4 at Rockwell Cage!
In the coming months, we’ll be traveling to some of the most venerated institutions of higher learning to find rockstar engineers — and bring them back to Knewton. We’ll be at Harvard’s Startup Fair on Friday, February 1st talking Knerd shop. I will be joined by software engineer, Mohan Kolli at the Knewton booth. Stop by and grab a Knerd shirt! In the meantime, check out this short video we put together featuring three Harvard-educated… Read more
Last Monday, Knewton hosted the NY Tech Women holiday/birthday party. Since its inception last December, NY Tech Women has grown to include nearly one thousand women. Through happy hours, mixers, pre-meetups and other informal social events, the group offers a number of ways for women to develop a real sense of community within the NY tech scene. More than just the standard business networking hour, the group is an easy way for women to form… Read more
Knerd shirts: maybe you’ve seen them around Union Square or on the subway. Here at Knewton, we’re big fans of our oh-so-soft American Apparel tees. For our last hack day, our Head of Recruiting, Dave Garfinkel was inspired to create his very own T-shirt cannon. Facilities Coordinator Patrick Ward and Software Engineer Nick Ward helped turn his vision into a reality. Check out this video of the cannon in action. On November 1, we’ll be… Read more
