About the company

Incorporated in 2019 by Yanur Islam Piash and Galib Hassan Khan, two alumnae of BUET, Bohubrihi is one of the popular e-learning platforms in Bangladesh, offering a wide range of courses on a diverse set of skills. In 2020, Bohubrihi launched its ‘Career Track Program’ to help the learners to be experts in a particular field by providing them training and complete guidance. Bohubrihi aims to provide their learners a more humanized experience with full-time mentor support, live discussions with the instructors, grooming sessions, counseling for job-hunting to even probable internship placements with partner companies, and personal feedback on every project done by the individual participants.

The Business Standard recently dubbed the platform as Bangladesh’s answer to Coursera. You can Learn more about the company and its founders on Future Startup.

Purpose of this hiring

Right now Bohubrihi is a host of over 100k students and 60 courses, making it one of the leading eLearning platforms in Bangladesh. And we’ve come this far using a website built with WordPress! For the past few years we’ve tested our products (especially the courses), got customer feedback, understood the market and successfully ensured early product-market fit.

Now it’s time for us to scale and strengthen that market-fit. To support our fast growth and ensure superior user experience at scale, we’ve started working on the first major iteration of our software product. We’re looking for a self-driven, growth-freak, jack-of-all-trade  Software Engineer to lead the development of Bohubrihi v2. This person will play the leading role in building a superior eLearning platform that can scale and compete globally. Please do not apply if you aim any lower than that.
