Grovo: Lead Web Developer

Posted by | October 3, 2010 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: New York, NY


Company: Grovo (NYC Startup)
Position Title: Lead Web Developer
Compensation: Cash/Equity
Location: NYC East Village
Company Overview
Grovo offers immediate personalized training on websites and mobile applications that are useful to you.  We have a premier in-house production team that creates entertaining, 2-minute video lessons that roll-up into 15 minute courses.  Individual users and entire organizations use the training platform easily.  Taking notes, bookmarking lessons, passing proficiency challenges to get Certified, and assigning courses to colleagues while tracking their progress is made fun for the first time.  For a fully branded experience, white-labeling the platform is just a few clicks away.
How many people do you know are overwhelmed by all they can do online and know that there is so much more that they can do?  Yet, there is not a single destination to extract this value quickly and easily, and have fun while doing it.  Businesses and consumers aren’t the only ones who benefit from this single destination; so do Internet and technology companies themselves – right now, they’re lacking an education and a training platform that nurtures their existing users and delivers new ones who are engaged.  For example, the majority of Twitter users use the product for only 90 days.  Grovo fixes this problem by creating a symbiotic and profitable relationship between websites and mobile apps, and the end users.
