Let´s help people reach their potential!

Sunlight helps companies grow a highly engaging learning culture by facilitating their team’s access to any learning resource in the world. Started in 2016 and backed by numerous world class investors such as Seedcamp, Techstars and Speedinvest, Sunlight is empowering organizations at the forefront of people practices to attract, motivate and retain their best talent through learning.

What makes Sunlight unique and poised to disrupt a crowded $400 dollar learning and development market, is the core belief that people grow best when given complete ownership of their learning. As opposed to a traditional learning management system where content is passively filtered to the employees, Sunlight allows companies to give each employee a yearly or monthly Sunlight learning budget. Employees can then use their Sunlight to access any book, course or event in the world, while HR teams get all the analytics, tracking and curation features needed to create and run an amazing learning environment.

Do you want to be part of it? Great timing! Sunlight is currently looking for a Chief Sales Officer to bring their business to the next level
