Head of People (Remote)

Our Organization

Learnlight is an EdTech company that’s passionate about putting trainers at the heart of the learning experience because that’s what delivers life-changing impact. We use award-winning technology to deliver language, intercultural and communication skills training online and on the ground, to learners in more than 180 countries.


Our company was founded in 2007 with a dream to bridge the gap between the disparate worlds of education and technology. Our vision was to create an ‘EdTech’ company that harnessed cutting-edge technology to optimize instructor-led training (ILT) rather than replace it, as so many traditional eLearning providers have tried and failed to do. Our obsession was, and continues to be, empowering talented trainers to create transformative learning experiences, because, at the end of the day, we think people are the real ‘killer app’.


Since our early years as a digital start-up, we’ve worked with hundreds of blue chips and international institutions across the world. Today our training services are used by more than 1,200 companies and by over 500,000 employees. We started in Spain however today we have offices across Europe and a team of more than 400 incredible professionals.
