Company Description

This is a fully remote job. Preferred locations: Western Europe Time Zone

Speach makes traditional learning approaches obsolete for companies, from midsize to global corporates.

Traditional learning approaches don’t scale, have poor retention, and take too much of the workers’ time. Speach, however, is built on learning principles that have been proven in modern neuroscience findings to maximize learning in the shortest amount of time. It uses the power of the network effect to create an infinitely scalable connection between experts and workers within the enterprise. Global corporates are changing the way employees learn and connect with each other, thanks to Speach, showing dramatic measurable increases in worker productivity and worker engagement.

Speach has remarkably supportive customers who provide video references and proof of the measurable ROI they achieve with our solutions. Speach provides manufacturing employees a way to learn, share their knowledge, and connect with each other. Speach increases employee engagement, reduces employee turnover, and increases worker productivity.

Speach has raised €12.2M in its last two rounds and is backed by prestigious investors such as Red River West and Alven Capital.

Originally founded in France, Speach now operates from its two legal entities in France and San Francisco in a full international remote mode, with people in the US, France and EMEA.
