About Knowledge E

At Knowledge E we are building the next generation platform bringing scientists, librarians and research managers together in a novel approach to research discovery, publishing and community engagement.

We’re a passionate team of 20+ hands-on entrepreneurs, engineers and research domain experts that want to make the lives of researchers a bit easier and a bit more fun, and make as significant behind-the-scene-contributions as possible to advancing the research front to the benefit for all of us on our little planet. We’re well funded through our existing content subscription-based business and grow steadily through new, dynamic research institutions turning to us for our more recent publishing, discovery and capacity-building training services.

We leverage leading edge technology in an open collaboration with the Coko Foundation and a range of other innovative partners in the publishing and research domain. The first version of the new platform will be released early 2017, after private beta testing with leading research institutions.

We’re now extending the development team with a Creative UX/UI Expert, a Data Scientist with extensive AI and Machine Learning experience, a Senior Frontend Developer, and a Support Specialist. We are looking for team members who get things done, not like talking about getting things done, and we invest in technologies that help us deliver great services and experiences, not just because they’re cool or because we feel comfortable in them.

We offer competitive salary and great benefits like healthcare, housing and schooling allowances, a flexible vacation policy, and more. We are based in the easily accessible X2 Tower in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, 5 minutes by foot from the metro, with splendid and inspiring views of Dubai.
