Want to know what it’s like to work at Kortext? Here’s what some of our team have to say...
Lauren: I'm Lauren, another Aussie who made the great pilgrimage to the UK, (by way of a couple years skiing in Canada!).
I am the Financial Accountant at Kortext. I work with the Financial Controller to prepare consolidated monthly management reporting and financial statements, meet statutory requirements in multiple countries, bill our customers across different revenue streams and assist in the day to day accounting of our ever-growing organisation. It is safe to say, no day is ever the same!
Some of my favorite things about working for Kortext is our awesome team who instantly made me feel at home when I arrived, our team outings and events, regular company provided lunches, and getting to work in one of the prettiest parts of the country!
Henrik: I joined Kortext in January coming from an enterprise size travel company. I've been looking for a long time for a remote job where I can combine no-commute with working together with like-minded, career-focused peers and top management. I'm an SEO and Content Manager at Kortext and my job is to make sure we have a healthy and strong search engine presence along with engaging content for students, lecturers and publishers.
Francesca, Publisher Services Executive: Following graduation I joined an academic publisher to begin my career in the publishing industry, I then moved to media and marketing, but returned to the industry I’m most passionate about when I joined Kortext at the start of 2018. My role in the company involves working with publishers on a variety of projects, looking at ways in which we can help them and also interesting and exciting opportunities that come about in new markets. It’s a dynamic and varied role in a modern and progressive company! It’s been a fantastic opportunity to work with a group of talented and creative individuals who are all working towards the same goal – to change education with the use of technology.
Yaz: I am an academic at heart having spent most of my career in Higher Education (over 15 years), leading the University of Winchester as Director of Learning and Teaching and Student Engagement. I believe that personalised learning and associated analytics will transform learning experiences, enhancing student retention, progression and success.
In my role as Director of Learning Experience, I focus on ensuring the learning experiences of every user is being optimised in both the pedagogical and technological aspects. I prioritise a user-centered design and platform as that is one of the biggest gaps in technological provision across the higher education sector.
What I love most about my job: The team I have built is incredible and some of the most talented people I could ever work with. I am also a big foodie and love our team meals together.
Jody: I’m Jody, I work from my home-office in Hertfordshire in the UK and I’m an Architect for Web Client Applications. I lead the development and architectural planning of front-end technologies, for the Kortext web platform. This includes day-to-day development work and overseeing the structural planning of current and future products, from a client-side technology perspective. In the two years since I joined the team, I’ve enjoyed making significant contributions to the platform and seeing our customer base grow as a result.
Kortext is fantastic product, with an ever-evolving potential and the wide and varied expertise within our team, means I’ve always got something new to learn. It’s a great place to work.
