Who we are

WeSchool is the leading Italian EdTech Company. We are on a mission to ensure learning never stops: our goal is to empower educators and students, and encourage them to innovate learning by making it more inclusive, collaborative, and engaging.

What's in it for you

To support our ambitious international expansion plans, our Education team is seeking a Senior Instructional Designer to help us strengthen our position as a leader in innovative educational practices among English-speaking countries.

What do Instructional Designers do every day at WeSchool?

They engage in research and dissemination activities, participate in the design, development, and implementation of training and educational projects for students of every age, and give presentations, sometimes in person, at events both in the education sector and for the general public.

At WeSchool we believe that teaching and learning better (and in a fun way) is not just about technology but about the right mix of effective methodologies, content, well-trained teachers, and motivated students. We believe that the “recipe” for teaching must always begin with good planning and the use of the most effective tools. Here you can learn more about the WeSchool Method and the ingredients to keep in mind to compose our "recipe".
