From time to time, you will also have to assist with related tasks, such as developing user stories and designing mock-ups, testing the learning platform with students and teachers, and writing up scientific articles for publication. We are growing fast and we are very ambitious. Therefore, we expect you to be extremely motivated, hard-working, entrepreneurial and fast learning.
