Job description

We are looking for someone that can help us build a great e-learning platform! Are you a good frontend developer who, besides being a good programmer, also has a feeling for the e-learning market? And do you want to help children and students to give them the tools they need to study fast and efficient? Then we are looking for you!




“Every child wants to pass and succeed. We help you in this, online in every possible way.”
