Why should you join Skilljar instead of working anywhere else?
To answer this question, according to Workology, we must define the essence of our company, Skilljar — how we’re unique and what we stand for. Of course, my co-founder, Jason Stewart, and I have been thinking about this since we founded Skilljar in 2013. At that time, we saw that companies were developing software and technology with great potential, but users were struggling to put these innovations to work. Product education was the missing link and legacy tools were frustrating Customer Education teams in their efforts to engage and educate users. The legacy Learning Management System (LMS) tools were outdated, built for internal employee training, and siloed from other business systems.
Fast forward to today – we’ve enjoyed fantastic growth and received numerous industry acknowledgments including being named to the Inc 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America and a “Technology Fast 500” Company by Deloitte for 2021. I also couldn’t be more proud to share that Skilljar has won 16 winter badges from the customer review site, G2, including Best Relationship, Easiest to do Business With, Easiest to Use, High Performer, Leader, and Users Most Likely to Recommend. To reach these heights requires a team of enormously talented and passionate people.
Build a Great Career with Meaning and Impact at Skilljar
Here are a few key reasons why we believe you should join Skilljar instead of anywhere else:
A Mission Worth Believing In
The biggest problem I see in this country today is growing inequality and an increasing skills gap, especially as we move more towards a knowledge workforce and continuous learning and re-skilling in careers. At the same time, it is critical for businesses to drive the successful usage of their digital products and services, especially in a subscription-based world where if customers don’t use the product, they are going to churn.
With nearly 20 million hours of education delivered, Skilljar is helping millions of people around the world gain job-relevant skills in a rapidly changing economy. We’re delivering business outcomes for our customers, innovating in an exciting new category, and driving impact to narrow the global skills gap.
At Skilljar, we also believe that companies have a role to play in driving social outcomes, which is why we’ve joined the Pledge 1% movement, committing 1% of our equity to be donated to philanthropic causes.
Growth Potential Galore
As a Skilljar employee, known affectionately as “Skillets,” you’ll have limitless opportunities to build creatively, learn new skills, and stretch yourself at a scaling company – all with a direct impact on our high-growth trajectory. To sustain long-term performance, we also support flexible work/life balance to recharge.
Here’s what some Skillets have to say about working at Skilljar:
“Skilljar is growing very quickly right now. We’re all learning a ton, there are so many opportunities and I look forward to what each day brings.”
–Shannon O’Neil, Account Manager
“I joined Skilljar as an Implementation Manager and moved over to our Product team. Working in Customer Success opened my eyes to our product and made it something I wanted to focus on as I grow my career — and I had the flexibility to make that transition at Skilljar. Solving customer problems is why we’re all here and it’s one of the things that continually reminds me how much I enjoy our company and working with the other people who care so much about what they do.”
— Jeff Richmond, Product Manager
“Customer centricity is at the heart of what we do at Skilljar. Just hearing back from our customers how much they love us and feel supported by us is something that makes me feel passionate and is really unique for businesses today.”
–Jen Raphael, Director, Customer Marketing
