[Jobs roundup] Join India's online education sector with these openings

YourStory lists a few jobs in the edtech sector, if you are interested to make education easier and accessible to more students

Edtech is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the country, more so during the coronavirus pandemic. Poised to reach $1.96 billion by 2021, India has a current user base of around 9.6 million in the online education sector. This will still represent only a tiny sliver of the Indian market that has over 250 million students currently enrolled in schools, indicating a tremendous potential.

As most of the schools and colleges are shut, fearing it to be a breeding ground for the novel coronavirus infection, edtech startups are proving to be useful for students to keep up with learning.

If you are interested to make education easier and accessible to more students, here is a list of job openings in the sector curated by YourStory.
