Full Job Description

Hive Learning is on a mission to disrupt corporate learning; a pursuit that is more relevant now than ever before, as face-to-face training is mostly impossible but most traditional online systems are grey, boring... and frankly rubbish if you ask us! Our magic? Peer learning. All the stuff that makes social media addictive and more - we are all about creating behaviour change by getting communities to drive daily habits together. We are making learning exciting and modern. We help workforces all over the world build cultures of learning, inclusion, collaboration and innovation. Our apps, content and activation teams help millions of people learn together every day.

We are proud to work with the likes of Pepsico, Jaguar Landrover, Deloitte, Barclays, Boots, two of the world's top business schools and multiple world-leading sports organisations and not-for-profits like Shout and Place2Be.

We're backed by Europe's leading venture builder, Blenheim Chalcot, and founded by legendary Rugby World-Cup-winning coach Sir Clive Woodward. And we're a team of 50 people (all working remotely right now!) spread across London, New York and many places in between.

And now, thanks to new client growth, we're looking for people who share our passion to help our clients rapidly accelerate culture change in their organisations so they can continue to grow and help their people grow with them.

At Hive Learning, our products are striving to create a more equitable world. And for that reason, we take diversity and inclusion seriously in our hiring processes too. We are committed to building a team that represents a whole host of backgrounds, perspectives and skills and we're proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. We strongly encourage candidates of all different backgrounds and identities to apply. If this job speaks to you but you're not sure you have the "right" experience, we'd encourage you to apply anyway and tell us why you'd be great here in your cover letter.
