about us

In the beginning...

The company was started by three founders, Marc, Chris and Vin, who felt that learning was inefficient. Most people don’t need to know most things. So large, overwhelming libraries have little positive impact. Instead, what’s important is that people find learning content which is useful for them. And so the decade-long history of the company is a journey through content, diagnostics, assessments, recommendations, curation, algorithms and machine learning techniques. The product we sell is magpie, a recommendations engine for adult education.

Today, we are 30, based in Shoreditch, London, helping individuals and companies to be more productive through intelligent learning recommendations. We like to think we’re a kind, considerate, multicultural, multi-talented, thoughtful team with a passion for learning. And we’re always on the look-out for like-minded, like-spirited people, so please be in touch if this sounds like your kind of place.
