About the company

Learning Pool is among the fastest-growing elearning companies in the market, servicing more than 800 customers and 2 million learners globally.  Our expert team creates the content and technology solutions that engage and empower modern leaders, using pioneering technology and creative content that we build, deliver and maintain.

We’re passionate about customer success and our customers trust us to deliver long-lasting value and a great return on investment.


The role

Learning Pool wants devs who really enjoy developing. Most of our development team take an interest in the latest and greatest tech and actively top up knowledge through blogs, Twitter, YouTube, etc. Many develop personal projects in their spare time to master new libraries or try out new techniques. That’s the kind of people we are: curious, active and aware.

The world of elearning does not have a reputation for being the most exciting, and we’ll admit that historically that’s been for good reasons! But our products and services are aimed at the type of organization that is fed up with ‘click-next’ style learning and wants to bring freedom and exploration back into the process of learning and development. Our tech stack is React, Redux on the client-side with Laravel and MySQL on the server (plus a few other bits and pieces we can discuss at interview if you like).

So if you’ve got the passion we’re looking for and the desire to join a team that values creativity and ownership, and you tick off the essentials below, then get in touch.
