    How We Are Different

    Educational publishers expect a development partner with innovative solutions, deep content knowledge, focused communications, effective project management, and the pedagogical and technological expertise to fulfill the changing requirements of the market.

    Victory develops engaging, content rich, individualized learning experiences that are accessible at any time and available on multiple platforms.

    • Assessments (high-stakes, formative, technology-enhanced, CCSS performance tasks)
    • Basal and supplemental programs for all curriculum areas
    • iBooks Textbooks and other EPUB platforms, iPad Apps/Mobile Apps, Web sites, online courses, LMS, LCMS, interactive labs, simulations, games, and animations

    Look at this list of Victory’s firsts:

    • One of the first databases to track standards in 2004.
    • The first K-6 online component to be submitted as an integral part of a state adoption. This 2005 K-6 social studies basal program swept California.
    • The first social studies iPad textbook app (grade 4) as part of the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Beyond Textbooks initiative.
    • The first multi-touch LMS. Teachers choose the grade and state social studies standard to be taught. Lessons and content individualized for each student are presented, and the results are recorded and compiled.
    • Two of the first iBook Textbooks to be sold on the iTunes Store: the Economics series and Breaking the Spanish Barrier.

    Victory’s Services

    Educational Publishing

    Victory’s in-house staff of content, publishing, and technology experts works with our clients at the planning stage and continues through to delivery of the finished product. Victory can also pick a project up at any point where a client needs help.

    Assessment Development

    Assessment is a world of its own, with its own language and customs. Victory lives there. Our assessment teams wield decades of instructional design experience, are fluent in Common Core (CCSS) and NextGen Science Standards (NGSS), and have developed a streamlined process to satisfy every state’s test-item requirements with speed and accuracy.

    Custom Software

    We build rich, full-featured products that perfectly fit teachers’ and students’ needs. We tailor apps, web sites, learning objects, visualizations, and big data systems to anticipate these needs before clients and their customer base have realized them. Victory’s software services can help—from brainstorming bold and pedagogically sound interactivity to pounding out Objective C.

    Consulting Services

    Victory has mastered new technologies and expanded its view of educational publishing. We have gathered the experts in one place for you. Challenge us with the thorniest of projects. There is a solution. Let’s discover it together.

    Challenges in Education

    Improving the learning results of students is an ongoing challenge. The level of education required to be a contributing adult in modern society is rising at a faster pace than the advances in our education systems.

    The advancement in the professional development of teachers also struggles to keep pace with changing standards, new technologies and educational philosophies.

    The overall quality of education in the US is lacking and there is little agreement on the cause and how to fix it. The constant emergence of new standards at both the state and national levels that don’t have universal acceptance are only adding to the problem.

    One of the current difficulties in education today is adjusting to the Common Core and its impact on: curriculum development, assessment, educational philosophy, teaching strategies, the "politics" and public opinion.

    Transitioning from traditional education methods to emerging ones will require acceptance and the adoption of different practices and technologies.

    Challenges Faced by Victory

    The entire educational landscape is changing and it requires adaptability, flexibility, and foresight to stay current with trends and ahead of the knowledge, technology and marketing curves.

    Economic stress and increased competition from both overseas and new start-ups will drive Victory to push innovation and offer greater value rather than competing on price alone.

    The development of new content to align with adopted standards and the transitioning of content to electronic media will require both content and technology expertise.

    Clients are looking for faster turn around time to develop and implement solutions.

    As we grow and expand our areas of expertise the need for top talent in the industry becomes more critical. Attracting and nurturing great employees starts with an inspired vision of innovation for the future and is maintained with a challenging and upbeat work environment.

    Opportunities for Victory

    Victory is already a recognized innovator in electronic media. Blended learning, the use of integrated medias and technologies like ebooks, videos, print, online courses and social interaction, are an integral part of the company’s development efforts. We’re also leading the way in the research of Big Data applications for education. This expertise puts Victory in a position to take a leadership role in the industry, providing a meaningful contribution to the evolution of education in the US.

    More immediately, this offers an opportunity to collaborate on a state or district level with educators, using our expertise with Common Core, content, and technology to help them navigate the evolving educational universe. This could be via:

    • Customized content and product development
    • Professional development of teachers with workshops, materials, etc.
    • Needs assessment and process improvement consultation on Big Data applications

    Another area of opportunity is in “results-based” and “teacher-tested” content products, either in a fully developed and tested product or in services that facilitate the classroom testing and reviews.

    Victory has the expertise to provide the full array of publishing services including the conception, creation and marketing of educational products.

  • Senior Front End Engineer

    • Job Title: Senior Front End Engineer
    • Division: Technology
    • Reports to: Director of Technology
    • Supervises: Primarily individual contributor, but mentors and develops junior staff

    Purpose

    You will be developing hybrid HTML5/JS interactive widgets and associated authoring and configuration tools for educational widgets. You will also be developing the front-end of the delivery platform for these widgets. They will be used both for instructional delivery and assessment and measurement of student responses. They are “hybrid” because they have to run not only on modern web browsers but “wrapped” as mobile device apps (iOS and Android). “Widgets” range from interactive demonstrations and simple technology-enhanced assessment items through simulations, casual games, serious games, and multi-step open-ended performance tasks.

    In addition to new development, there are projects for our clients that require adaptation of legacy interactive software from Flash to hybrid HTML5/Javascript applications.

    Millions of students (and tens of thousands of teachers) will use your software to learn across all subjects, and receive personalized guidance on the next steps of their learning. We are passionate about building easy to use and beautiful products that delight our customers. We strive to build them with code and technologies that are high-quality, modern, maintainable, and elegant.

    Expected Results

    1. Learning objects that help students learn (and occasionally giggle or guffaw) and provide evidence of learning to the adults who are responsible for guiding the students.
    2. Project deliverables that delight clients – and make them want to do more business with us and recommend us to others.

    Principal Duties and Responsibilities

    1. Contribute “what’s possible” to a multidisciplinary project team while understanding “what’s good for learning” from subject-matter experts and “how to measure” from assessment experts.
    2. Be a learner (so the company can become shrewder in its use of technology) and a teacher (to spread what you’ve learned among your colleagues).
    3. Accurately estimate the effort to deliver the front end components of a project – and then deliver quality solutions while tracking the actual effort so we finish in a timely fashion. Bonus points for experience using Agile development methods.

    Qualifications – you are…

    1. A native of the Web. You are comfortable developing for browsers, embracing the web as a first-class development platform. You have solid software development experience going beyond static HTML+CSS websites. Not only could you code directly in JavaScript, but also you have used (or at least experimented with) modern frameworks that generate or abstract JavaScript. Examples of these are languages or “compilers” such as TypeScript, CoffeeScript, ClojureScript, Script#, F# - or libraries such as AngularJS, Ember, Backbone, Bootstrap, D3, or Knockout.
    2. An Eager Learner. You must be enthusiastic about growing in your knowledge and skills in many areas spanning:
      1. Human-centered design for user experience and interaction flow
      2. Software engineering principles for writing modular, testable, maintainable, secure code
      3. Modern technologies and frameworks
      4. Productive tools to manage the full software development lifecycle
    3. A Listener and Communicator. You enjoy collaborating with, learning from, and teaching others so we can all become better developers. You demonstrate creativity in problem solving and are able to explain, question, and dialogue in a team setting. You will work not only with other engineers, but subject-matter experts in learning and assessment for language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, etc.
