How We Work

We work together. We collaborate and innovate. We look for effective and better ways to achieve results. We avoid reasons – nothing amazing got created from reasons. We ask questions like, “How could we…?” or “Where else has this been solved before?” or “what would it take to…?”

Are you a fit?

  • You love WordPress and really understand the technical components easily
  • You have written a plugin based on client intake and fixed bugs associated with it
  • You have experience with LearnDash in a WordPress environment
  • You’ve effectively managed many small and large projects at the same time
  • You are familiar working in Divi and can navigate through the theme quickly and efficiently
  • You have experience working with PHP and MySequal
  • You are mature. You understand discretion, confidentiality, and have sound judgment
  • You function under your own direction and are independent in a team setting
  • You want to be mentored by an industry Thought Leader
  • You have a strong technical background with an eye for design
You want to be challenged. You want to get over your fears of speaking up. You are ready to be a leader. You are ready to be a part of a team. You know how to deliver on time and do what it takes. You don’t make commitments and then not keep them.

Why Choose Learn2?

We are out to transform how the world works, learns and develops leaders. We believe in women and actively seek out how to evolve humanity’s relationship to women leaders. We acquired the Women in Leadership & Business Conference to demonstrate the value of raising women up.
