Testimonials

After presenting Learning Dollars with a set of specifications, we were delighted to have a project manager and developer help us refine our thinking and ultimately deliver a very sophisticated, demanding project on budget. Learning Dollars did an excellent job, highly efficiently and with a very positive attitude. They are a delight to work with. I will not hesitate to use them again when another project comes up. - Wayne Willis, yale1969.org (Yale Class of 1969 Alumni Website)

LD is using education and technology to fix online work. We produce digital products developed by certified engineers who have been financially incentivized to ace world-class MOOCs.

Apply as an engineer here. So why are we "Learning Dollars"? Because we literally pay you to learn skills. In this survey, we do a background check, we promote good working habits, we do an logic test, we give a creativity and divergent thinking assessment, and finally we do a responsiveness check. When you pass (you can take the survey as many times as you want), we train you into one of our roles through MOOCs. You get paid a certain fixed amount for each module you pass. Once you finish our intensive training which includes a lab practical, you'll certainly be an expert, and your job is converted from "fixed price" to "hourly".
