Customer Support Specialist
Are you a seasoned customer support professional who wants a job that serves a larger purpose? Are you interested in making a meaningful, life-changing difference for millions of students?
Digication is changing the way students learn from the ground up. Instead of rote learning through lectures and tests, Digication allows students to create online portfolios – collaborative and safe learning spaces – to encourage project-based learning. Campuses report that sustained ePortfolio usage leads to higher levels of student success, including significant increases in pass rates, GPA, and retention rates. Digication is now being used by students at over 6,000 K-12 and Higher Education schools.
About our culture

We are not a work hard/play hard startup but responsible adults with diverse backgrounds and interests who take our mission, our clients and our lives seriously. We value personal growth and learning over titles and salaries.
