Make fun things that matter

A great place to make a meaningful impact

Otsimo started with a Northstar vision: Making education accessible to all. We advocate for all kids’ right to education by giving them the space and the voice. This starts with giving them positive, engaging, and teaching experiences through gamified content.

We’re taking solid steps towards this unique mission to give children of all backgrounds and needs the right tools to achieve their potential with the best team ever. It takes highly-motivated and super-talented professionals to pull this off. And we’re always looking for like-minded powerhouses to join our fun and diverse team.

One of the things that separate us from other tech companies is that we put kids and their experiences at the heart of what we do. This includes the technologies we use, like our proprietary speech recognition technology and the special algorithms we use to enhance speech learning and special education experience for kids as young as two years old.


If you are searching for an opportunity to work with intelligent, talented, motivated, and super fun people and make your mark in children’s life, and the world, you’ll fit right in at Otsimo.
