An Insider's view of Skilljar

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I'd say our vibe is something along the lines of: "Work hard and ensure we have a little fun while we do it." I like to use humor to reduce stress in high-pressure situations (quarter-end) and focus on enabling our GTM teams to be so confident and passionate about what we do that the day to day becomes fun.

Ray

VP of Sales

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m most excited about evolving our platform from Heroku onto AWS and giving us more control over our app (and cost savings).

We get to tackle the challenges of deploying software (build, test, deploy, monitor, etc.), and it’s a cool (and challenging) opportunity to introduce fundamental changes in our infra while continuing to support our devs.

Amanda

DevOps Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

The biggest way that Skilljar supports my career growth is in providing me with the flexibility and trust to take on new projects. My managers and the leadership team give me a lot of control over my job and how I want to grow. I have learned and grown more in my short time here than I have been able to in the last few years in my previous roles.

Simone

Recruiter

What is your vision for the company?

Our Co-founders started Skilljar to help companies drive customer outcomes through education. We’re driven by the belief that access to learning can unlock human potential, and that training is vital in ensuring the latest innovation is embraced and adopted. This vision resonates deeply with our team, and we’re passionate about bringing it to life.

Aashish

VP of Marketing

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The biggest problem my team is solving is how to scale the company. We have a solid foundation already. However, as we grow, we're choosing systems and processes to position us for growth. It is challenging and exciting to be a part of this process. It's rewarding to see our impact on other teams and the long-term benefit to the whole company.
