About Skool:

Skool is a platform where course creators host their student communities and course content in 1-place, with 1-login, and 1-search. In the past, this was done with a Facebook Group, and a learning management system (LMS). Skool puts the two together and gamifies it, so it's engaging and fun. Watch a 2-min explainer video here.

We've been building Skool for 3 years. We're a team of 13 people. We have a product people love, paying customers, we're well funded, profitable, and growing 20% month-over-month organically. Our CTO (Daniel Kang) has 20 years of experience and high standards for system design and code quality. Our CEO has 10 years of experience in the e-learning industry, building a company from $0 to $36m. He self-funded Skool with $10m of his own money.

Skool is a remote team with an office in Los Angeles. Much of the team is LA-based, but we're open to all US-based candidates for this role. We welcome staff in the office (if they prefer), but work completely distributed.

We like to build things people love. We keep things casual, non-political, playful, and child-like. We've found creativity comes from a place of fun, collaboration, and friendship. We keep our processes minimal, systems simple, and communication casual. We hire talented people, pay above market salaries, give equity, full benefits, the best tools — anything necessary to have fun making great stuff.

The stars don’t align like this very often, get in while the team is small and equity is on the table. Join us!
