We’re a venture-backed startup creating the most affordable and accessible private university in the world.
OUR MISSION: DISRUPTION, INNOVATION, EDUCATION FOR ALL
The mission of UniversityNow is to leverage innovative technologies and teaching methods to help students everywhere earn recognized degrees and credentials that advance their careers and improve their lives, at a price point that allows every student to graduate debt-free. We have just launched the most accessible and affordable, accredited university in the world.
Backed by leading technology and education investors, we currently operate New Charter University (new.edu). We follow the Lean Startup model and are building out an online higher education platform. Think of this as a social network that is accredited to give degrees, with the inner workings of a university underneath. Our social learning platform is built on open-source technology (Ruby, JQuery, Postgres, MongoDB) and now we are looking for Web app developers, mobile developers and gamers that would be excited to help our fun and fearless team scale our operation. We're also looking for product managers, designers, and, well, anyone who can help.
