Help us empower learners to realize their potential.

The Project for Education Research That Scales (PERTS) envisions a world in which all learners—especially those who face greater barriers to academic success—engage fully and fearlessly in challenging endeavors that help them achieve their goals. To realize that vision, PERTS works with numerous researchers and educational organizations to develop, test, and disseminate scalable practices that increase learners’ resilience and success.

Our passionate tight-knit team includes psychological researchers, data scientists, designers, educators, and software developers. Our work has been funded by the U.S. Institute of Education Sciences, National Science Foundation, Raikes Foundation, Joyce Foundation, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Gates Foundation, and multiple universities that benefit directly from our work.

What about perks?

Technology

Bad tech should never get in the way of good work. Get a fresh MacBook, modern software, whatever you need.

The Usual

Healthcare, 401k matching, and all the perks you’d expect from Stanford. But sorry, no ping pong table (yet).

Flexibility

A busy office isn’t always the best place to get the job done. Work-from-home is a big part of the PERTS culture.
