About Edrolo

At Edrolo we're transforming the way students learn and teachers teach. Our mission is simple: to improve education. But improving education is hard, so we must continue to build-out a world-class team to pursue the huge opportunities in front of us.

Our team in Fitzroy VIC and Alexandria NSW creates cutting-edge online education resources for high school students and teachers in both the VCE and HSC curricula.

We're also Startmate alumni and have some of Australia's and Singapore's brightest investors backing us (Blackbird Ventures, AirTree Ventures, Jungle Ventures).

The School Support Team is made up of a team of passionate high-achievers who are committed to our mission and doing their absolute best by our customers, each other, and internal clients. We’re a fun bunch with a variety of backgrounds, and are looking for someone to jump in and help contribute to our unique culture.
