Who they are
Kognity is one of the fastest-growing EdTech companies in the world and they aim to radically improve learning for 1.5 billion school students globally. They provide intelligent textbooks to schools in over 90 countries on 5 continents, allowing students to learn things faster and more effectively while allowing teachers to help their students reach their goals. Kognity is for those who want to take part in making the world a better place by working hard and creatively in a fun, caring, high-paced and challenging environment.
What they Do
Kognity help schools teach, manage and improve the learning experience for their students. Their ultimate goal is to see the success and steady improvement of students as they navigate through their studies with the help of their teachers. They do that by providing first-class digital textbooks that adapt to the learning needs of students and help teachers coach their students through their education.
They are a textbook publisher, but a different one. Back in 2012, they decided to start reinventing the printed textbook in order to provide a digital, interactive and intelligent textbook. They want to bring life to textbooks and by mixing education with technology, so they can help teachers teach and students learn in a drastically more efficient way. Education is not a one size fits all model and nor should the resources be. That is why they are on a mission to bring the world to the digital textbook era in order to improve learning through innovation.
Why come and work with Kognity?
Their vision is to radically improve learning for the 1.5 billion school students of the world. They pursue this vision because no other single factor has a higher impact on the long term prosperity and well-being of humanity than education. Yet technology has previously not delivered on its promises of better learning.
Kognity is growing 100% year-on-year. They are looking for the sharpest brains, biggest hearts, and greatest drive in Stockholm and internationally, willing to take part in making the world a better place by working at a fun, caring and challenging environment.
