Why we're here

About us

Based on 7+ years in the talent industry

Our journey started with Enternships, which addressed the problem of graduate talent acquisition. We helped match young people with 7000+ companies around the world, including Telefonica, Havas, and Santander Bank.

Professional development is vital now to prepare for the future of work.

Employees and companies will need to work together to develop new skills and stay competitive. But there’s a big difference between talking about it and doing it right.

L&D hasn't been a smooth experience

Most employees have had bad professional development experiences — the net-promoter score of Learning & Development rated by non-HR professionals is -8.

Businesses are not having a good experience either. 68% of employees have changed jobs because of a lack of learning and development opportunities, yet specific return-on-investment is a perennial problem for L&D.

We tackle these problems head-on

By going beyond learning and focusing on development we care about how new knowledge is applied on the job, and how it can propel growth for both the employee and the business.

We want this process to be as easy and enjoyable as possible for our users, ensuring that they never feel lost.

1. Why Learnerbly?
I am passionate about helping people be their best. Having spent a number of years helping thousands of companies hire the best talent via Enternships the natural progression was to explore how we best develop this talent! I wanted to create a platform to enable people to connect to the best learning opportunities regardless of how they learn — so I started Learnerbly.

2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?
I recently did an introductory course in Coaching which was really useful and which i’ve now introduced during my 121s and catch ups. Coaching is a very powerful tool to support your colleagues to overcome their own challenges.

1. Why Learnerbly?

I really do believe that education is the answer to most of the challenges we face – whether at the level of the individual or society as a whole – and that learning is (or should be) a life-long state of being. So when I first met Raj several years ago, it was an easy decision to get involved in Learnerbly and lend my support to such a passionate advocate of learning and personal development.


2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?

An almost daily must-read for me is the witty and insightful newsletter from Anand Sanwal, founder and CEO of CB Insights. I recently reread Confessions of an Entrepreneur by Chris Robson, which takes a close and uncompromising look at what it takes to build a successful company – a sobering reminder that you don’t have to be young and full of energy to start a business, but it certainly helps!

1. Why Learnerbly?
I’ve always been a keen learner but I’ve never felt that there is enough support and guidance to do so in day to day working life. Becoming part of a team trying to change that was an easy sell.



2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?
I’ve read many books in the past year but Designing Data-Intensive Applications by Martin Kleppmann was the one that stood out. It’s a must-read for anyone building distributed architectures.

1. Why Learnerbly?
Having spent most of my career selling Learning or Knowledge brokering services I recognised an opportunity to really change the way businesses think about Learning, from an employee perk to a strategic business transformation tool. I was excited to join an experienced and hungry team that also saw the broader vision.



2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?
I’m a huge fan of podcasts. Among my favourites are Eat, Sleep, Work Repeat by Bruce Daisley and Creative Live by Chase Jarvis. I think the single most impactful training I’ve had in the last 12 months, however, was a Product Management course I took at General Assembly. It taught me how design thinking and process driven product development which has been invaluable for my current role!

Dolores Vanessa Carbajal De Nova
Head of Partnerships

1. Why Learnerbly?

I’m a strong believer in the transformational power of education and learning. Having led partnerships for academic innovation with lots of Universities I realised there was a market gap for top quality professional education that would help people to build great careers and boost specific skills.


2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months? 

Recently, I took an assertive communication workshop with one of our Learnerbly coaches. It was fantastic and life transforming! It had some many positive effects not just on the way I communicate, but also how I lead my team, think about myself and even how I stand.

Gabby Cummins
Customer Success Lead

1. Why Learnerbly?

Two-fold really. 1) Because the people are so nice! Learnerbly practices what it preaches when it comes to nurturing a developmental culture. 2) As a former teacher and L&D professional—Learnerbly’s commitment to helping others grow is what gets me out of bed.



2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?

Radical Focus: Achieving Your Most Important Goals with OKRs. A quick, fable-style read that’s got great advice on how to align the team around what matters most to the company. The Lean Startup—a no brainer for anyone new to startups, and coaching sessions with Jen Wrigley, who developed my confidence and helped me clarify strategic approaches.

Danny Yau
Head of Product

1. Why Learnerbly?

Learnerbly’s vision statement really motivated me to join here, as did the chance to get involved in an early-stage start-up, and the exploration and uncertainty that comes along with that. Growing up I didn’t realise the importance of personal development until I ran my own startup and become a bit addicted to learning as a result. I want to build products which people use each day, and which have a positive impact on their lives, and I believe we can do that for professional development.

2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?

Books generally. I hated reading as a kid, so didn’t build up good reading habits until recently. It’s astonishing how much good content from inspirational people there is out there which you can apply to your life. I find memoirs and biographies particularly useful because they show you the ordinary human struggles behind great people or achievements. If I had recommend one, I’d suggest Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind. It resonates with my way of thinking.

Marie Krebs
Office and Operations Manager

1. Why Learnerbly?

I like working here because it’s a fast-paced yet caring environment. My role in inherently versatile, so ongoing learning really matters to me. It’s incredibly rewarding to work for a company with a purpose that helps others fulfil their potential.




2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months? 

I’ve joined an operations managers network where people share their experience and the creative ways they overcame obstacles. It’s specifically helped with finding ways to generate proactive engagement and look at our processes from different and unusual angles. I also learnt a lot about data protection in order to implement the GDPR here, but I’ll spare you the details 😉

Gerardo Munguía Hoyo
Full Stack developer

1. Why Learnerbly?

As a developer, I’ve always had to keep up with new technologies and trends. I was looking for a company which had that value of constant learning at the heart of what it does. At other companies it can be difficult to strike a balance between producing code and learning and keeping up with changes, but that’s different here.



2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?

Every Monday morning, I open I open up all the popular repos on there, and read through them. Sometimes I’ll find new useful tools, and other times I’ll just be reading through well-engineered code. It’s a great source of inspiration, and it’s also surprising — what you would assume someone would do with code is often very different in actuality.

Sharlyne Slassi
Product Designer

1. Why Learnerbly?

Our central Product challenges are one of most attractive and rewarding aspects of working here. Edtech generally wasn’t really on my radar a while ago, but the more I’ve worked on the challenges we face here, the more interesting it becomes. The problems we’re trying to solve are deceptively difficult, particularly as learning is such a personal and human endeavour.



2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?

I really enjoyed the recent Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt exhibition at the V&A. It specifically helped with a product feature I’d been butting my head against for a while, but it was also a great reminder that design shouldn’t have a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. There are many different ways to get to the same outcome. Interviewing our users has also made me reflect on and improve my internal and external communication.

Mike Hurl
Frontend developer

1. Why Learnerbly?

I was really drawn here by Learnerbly’s learning culture and the idea of empowering others. My background is in teaching at primary schools, and I’ve found it incredibly satisfying to know you’ve made a difference to somebody through teaching. The idea of empowering life-long learning and changing the conversation around how we improve ourselves at work is very attractive to me.


2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?

Makers Academy — not least because it’s why I’m here 😁. It was completely different from the formal education I’ve previously had at school and university. It was a (pleasant) surprise going into the program and discovering that you essentially have to teach yourself. You need to clarify your own thinking in order to find your own answers to questions. Makers reflects the workplace and was a space in which you could fail. It gave me the trust and comfort to go from knowing nothing, to being ready to join the world as a junior developer.

Guy Reading
Partnerships Marketing Executive

1. Why Learnerbly?

I’ve always been interested in anything and everything, so the chance to work on a curated platform of learning was unexpectedly perfect for me. I really enjoy the fast-paced, kind and open-minded environment here. You’re given the chance to try things out, learn new skills constantly and develop as a person.



2. What learning resources have had the biggest impact on you in the last 12 months?

I’ve gotten into the habit of listening to Bloomberg’s Masters in Business podcast while doing housework over the weekend. There are a few duds, but they’re generally fascinating (and strangely relaxing) on the subject of leadership and economics. The Path Between the Seas, on the building of the Panama canal, is a unbelievable story with some interesting lessons for modern-day venture capital.
