ABOUT HIVE LEARNING
Hive Learning is on a mission to disrupt corporate learning - a pursuit more relevant now than ever before. Face-to-face training is mostly impossible right now (and was never that effective before), and most traditional online learning systems are grey, boring... and frankly, rubbish, if you ask us. Our magic? Peer learning. Bringing people together to learn from the awesome programmes we’ve built, and most importantly - each other. We’re all about creating behaviour change by getting communities to drive daily habits together. We’ve taken the good bits from social media and learning software, and dropped the bad, boring stuff. We’re making learning exciting, modern and accessible for everyone. And today, we help workforces all over the world build cultures of learning, inclusion, collaboration and innovation. Millions of people learn together using the Hive Learning platform. We’ve got some awesome customers including 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.
Now for the most exciting bit. We think we’re onto something special. We’ve grown rapidly in the last year, signed some awesome new clients and have (almost) figured out our formula for growth. So now we’re looking for people who share our passion for learning, collaboration, and inclusion to help us supercharge our next phase of growth.
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.
We’re already achieving some great results but now we’re looking to power-up the team for the next phase of our growth. Your challenge is to help us accelerate it.
You’ll be tasked with unearthing high-quality sales opportunities, building connections and relationships, and growing our number of new customers. We’ll empower you with winning techniques, tools and a really supportive environment to learn and try new things. In return, we’re
looking for someone who can bring bundles of enthusiasm, energy and the creativity to make the magic happen.
