About your team
At e180, one of our core values is learning (“Be a knowledge gardener”). We cultivate human potential by enabling our people to learn from one another. We love to create rewarding learning experiences for our employees, clients and our community and want to increase the impact of collaborative learning around the world. We have invented Braindate, our flagship product, which helps people around the world, connect with each other and share their knowledge.
The Lab focuses on developing a new generation of products related to e180’s mission to reinvent how people of all ages learn around the world. The team explores new and innovative product initiatives in a fast pace mode in order to validate key assumptions and elements of a solution and business model, and iterate towards the right mix and fit. We accelerate new product development through rapid prototyping, experimentation and validation, leveraging human-centered design, customer insights and data-informed decisions.
While we don’t believe apps solve all problems in and of themselves, we do believe technology can help create and scale meaningful and magical learning experiences and outcomes. We empathize with learners and customers, in order to design and develop toward solutions that bring value to them. We work iteratively to quickly validate key assumptions and course correct to achieve desired outcomes and business objectives. We care deeply about our mission and impact, and, in the decisions we make, do our best to balance intuition and validation, quality and speed, passion and reason.
The global pandemic has allowed us to reinvent ourselves and take advantage of growth opportunities in new markets. We have segmented our services to meet specific needs into 4 segments; Event, Enterprise, Community and General Public. This position will be dedicated to working in the General Public segment.
