[Jobs Roundup] Ride the edtech unicorn with these openings at Unacademy

Backed by the likes of Facebook, Sequoia, Nexus Venture Partners, and General Atlantic, Unacademy is set to further grow its team. Check these openings out.

Bengaluru-based Unacademy entered the unicorn club this year with the pandemic providing necessary tailwinds for edtech startups to grow. Founded by Gaurav Munjal, Roman Saini, and Hemesh Singh in 2015, Unacademy is today, one of the largest edtech players in the country.

Backed by the likes of Facebook, Sequoia, Nexus Venture Partners, and General Atlantic, among others, Unacademy is only set to further grow its team and its capabilities.
