Why should you work at Skillshare?

Why should you work at Skillshare?

In 2011, a New York based startup that goes by the name Skillshare launched a massive, open online course approach, through interactive, video-based lessons. The concept is to give people a real-world education online and offline. You can find them thinking big and working hard out of their Soho, Manhattan headquarters. Their small team has bold vision and a laser-like focus.

They have already grown to over 100K in paid enrollments in over 500 classes, even the teachers can make quite a bit of money themselves depending on popularity. The company has seen a recent injection of funds bringing Skillshare’s total capital to $10 million. Skillshare would like to hyper-expand in 2014 by going mobile and adding more courses (particularly in business, design and tech).

Current openings at Skillshare.

So what makes skillshare different from video-based education platforms like Lynda.com, CreativeLive, Khan Academy and Curious, is lessons that are both live and interactive, as well as courses that are project-based and allow students to learn at their own pace.

Michael Karnjanaprakorn, CEO and Co-founder seeks to boost student engagement by making its platform, and the learning experience itself, more social. There is no barrier to entry for someone to submit an application to bring their classes (or subject expertise) online. Students are able to get face-to-face time with teachers via online office hours and focus on learning through completing projects and receiving peer feedback. Skillshare is working on developing an active and participatory community seeking to network with other professionals and intellectuals.

The platform allows teachers and subject experts to design classes and projects for their students to complete live or at their leisure, along with the ability to add supplemental content, from syllabi to relevant lectures, while allowing students to participate in discussions, submit projects and receive feedback on their work.

Wanna work for these Skillshare folks?

Skillshare wants to capitalize on the growing demand for skills-based learning content. This is the type of site that wants to give you the technical ability to expand your resume, while maintaining an honest and genuine field of knowledge for the ever-changing and increasingly competitive (and technical) job market.

Right on their website, it says they’re “curious, driven and united around a central purpose: reinvent learning to unlock the limitless potential of people around the globe”. Well you can count me in.
