Company Summary

DemoLesson is an online hiring platform where teachers and tutors create professional profiles (similar to LinkedIn), that include video of themselves doing what they do best: teach! They can then use these profiles to secure employment from education organizations. Schools pay us to post jobs on the platform, looking to expedite their hiring process by seeing teachers teach BEFORE inviting them to interview.
