Hi! We're Learning Tapestry. We're a 35+ person all-remote, global organization dedicated to making digital learning "just work" for educators and learners alike. We solve hard problems in complex education technology environments. We’re a triple bottom line company: we make a profit like any good business; our work makes the world better (“social impact”); and we create a healthy internal work environment for everyone who works here. For our staff we believe in flexible work locations and working arrangements.  We empower all of our team members to manage their schedules and adjust as necessary. We're focused on results and impact, not locations and hours. We hire people with great technical ability, but we also expect everyone at Learning Tapestry to have a strong character and solid communication skills.

You’re fluent in written and spoken English. You will be working directly and hands-on with the client, as well as participating in frequent scrum rituals and other meetings as required, in which English is their working language.
