Director, Software Development

Every year international students spend billions in tuition to North America schools. Until now, schools had to market directly to students who were overwhelmed with confusing information and complex and inconsistent application processes.

This company is revolutionizing the way students research and apply to universities and colleges in North America. Their vision is to make North American education more accessible to foreign students – easing the search, selection and application process.  Their platform, with its unique matching algorithm (using AI) based on an individual’s financial means, educational background and program area of interest, finds the best programs available and identifies options where the student has 95%+ chance of acceptance.
