Accredible & The Role

Accredible is building the repository of the world’s credentials. We want hiring to be about what you can do, your skills and potential.

In the past three years we’ve built the best credentialing product in the world. Universities, associations, tech companies and others are able to create, deliver and manage tens of thousands of digital certificates and open badges with just a few clicks. We’re continuing to make this product as good as it can be and have been laser focused on the needs of credential issuers. Now we’re ready to start focusing on credential recipients; the people who take part in learning and then receive a certificate or badge.

Your role will be to help build a great product for certificate recipients. You’ll be helping them to upload their own certificates, send transcripts to third parties, embed their certificate wallet in a website, view course recommendations that help them skill up, etc. You’ll be able to have a huge impact for thousands and thousands of users.

You won’t be doing this alone as we have a world-class product team you’ll be working with. You’ll have support from a designer, a back-end engineer, a project manager and another front-end engineer.

You’ll have a lot of decision making power, autonomy and trust. We make decisions democratically and give team members the time, resource and authority to work on what they think is most important.
